Summer is well and truly behind us and its time to move on and look forward to the great experiences the winter can offer. Ski holidays are very popular with many of our clients during the colder months of the year, for this reason, we have put together an easy to follow guide to help you make sure your holiday is comprehensively planned and runs smoothly. Hopefully as smooth as the slopes you will be enjoying.
Booking Your Flights and Accommodation
The flights and accommodation is the first step to planning any holiday, whether its a winter getaway or a summer beach holiday this is the perfect place to start. Once you have found a great deal for your ski holiday make sure you check all the reviews to make sure that your accommodation is as glamourous as you were expecting. Once its all booked, make sure you print off the confirmation and store it in a small folder. Just a little tip to help keep you organised!
Organising Your Lift Passes
If this is your first ski holiday you may be asking yourself “what’s a lift pass”. Well, if you would like to enjoy the steep mountainside slopes you need a lift pass to access all the best runs. Lift passes will vary in prices but its a must-have for your skiing holiday as without it you will be stuck in your accommodation with no means of accessing the slopes. Browsing the internet is the best way to find a lift pass and make sure you order a pass for the correct location you are visiting.
If it is your first ski holiday it can be very cost-effective to hire your equipment instead of outright purchasing it. Whether you plan to ski or snowboard you should hire your equipment in advance to make it that when you arrive, collecting your items is a smooth and hassle-free process. There are many great websites for hiring equipment but make sure you hire the equipment from a store close to where you are staying. Wherever you decide to hire your equipment from make sure all the equipment is supplied by trusted brands. This equipment will be used day in and day out so it’s important that it’s of high-quality.
Warm and Comfy Clothing
There are many companies out there that allow renting your ski jacket and salopettes but I advise that you purchase our own. From previous experience, I have ended up wearing my ski equipment on those snowy and cold days in the UK and if I had rented my equipment I would not have had a warm jacket to get me through the weather. If you are taking a look at this guide to help prepare for your kid’s ski holiday I would advise that you hire. There is nothing worse than spending lots on a high-quality ski jacket and then growing out of it to then never wear it again.
Now, you have got all of the essentials you can sit back and reward yourself with a cup of warm tea to celebrate. That’s all the difficult stuff out of the way. You now need to decide how much you are planning to take away with you and change it up to the relevant currency. When calculating how much currency you need its much easier to break it down by day by day spending then tally it all up at the end. Once you have got your currency ready make sure you store it in a safe location along with your passport and your flights and accommodation confirmation. You’re almost ready!
