If you haven’t booked a ski holiday yet and are thinking about it, you better hurry because the heavy snow fall in the Alps in December boosted tour operator sales and are leaving some limited space for UK vacationers.
“Easter and February half term has sold particularly well with only small pockets of availability left. In particular, we have seen an increase in bookings in resorts in Italy and France,” says Lisa Tyrell of Inghams (www.inghams.co.uk). “Our new chalet and chalet hotels have sold really well, with many skiers choosing the high-value fully-catered option”.
Deals are still to be had however, and Inghams is offering seven nights at half-term departing on 11 February 2011 to the three star Chalet Hotel Elizabeth, Kühtai, Austria, on chalet board from £999 (1,800 USD) per person, saving £150pp ($280 USD). The price includes full skiers’ buffet breakfast, afternoon tea and coffee and cakes, 5 course evening meal and flights from Gatwick to Innsbruck (regional flights available).
“If you’re not tied to school holidays, the best time to book a ski holiday is mid-March and Inghams still has plenty of availability in Italy, France, Switzerland and Austria with some fantastic deals available,” says Lisa.
