Skiing Tignes November 2013

Hard to believe, but early season snow in the French Alps is even better than last year.


Yes, hard to believe, but this is in November, and it is Tignes, but what’s all that white stuff – and where are all the people?
By all accounts, the snow at this stage in the season is better in most French Alps resorts than it was last year – and WHAT a year last year was! As your friendly financial advisor sill always tell you, “Past performance is no guarantee of future performance…”, but we can nevertheless hope the 2013/2014 Season is going to be as good as, or even better than 2012/2013.
But to-heck with the hoping, maybe a better options is to plan a sneaky early season ski weekend to take advantage of the superb snow and lack of crowds – maybe I’ll see you there?!

Luxury Chalet with Hot Tub Morzine

By avoiding Christmas itself, and going one week earlier, you can save about 50% on this luxury Morzine chalet


The snow has started falling in the French Alps, so maybe time to grab a bargain on your 2013 ski holidays by going for one of our early season ski deals! By going in the “shoulder” period just outside the peak school holidays, you can make huge savings over going at Christmas or New Year itself.
A great example is this luxury chalet with hot tub in Morzine – at Christmas and New Year, this catered chalet costs €1050 per person, but by going just a week earlier on 14th December, it’s almost half the price, at just €559 per person for 1 weeks catered holiday.
