It’s that time of year again. The snow has melted, the ski blues have kicked in and it’s time to put the ski clothes away for another season.
However, this is the most cost-effective time to book your ski holiday and here are the reasons why:
Discover Booking Your Ski Holiday Early Benefits Below
6. The Early Skier Catches The Discounts

DID YOU KNOW?
Powder White was made British Airways preferred partner for not only resorts in the Alps but also North America and Canada too.
5. Organisation And Stress-Free
It’s simple human behaviour, if you plan something with enough time, it will reduce the shocks and stress of any last minute planning.
More obviously, it gives you and the family something to look forward to, so get ahead, get organised, and beat the competition to the best ski holiday options available this winter.
Think of it as a boxing day sale. If you get their early you get the best pickings, if you turn up late to the party, you will have to make do with something you don’t necessarily want.
At Powder White, we want to make sure that every customer and their family get their first choice.
4. Spreads The Costs
What else happens in winter? Christmas, Christmas parties, New Year Eve Parties, Birthdays just to name a few costly events.
By booking now, you can carefully spread the costs over the year. With Powder White, you only need to pay 30% of the booking to secure your dream holiday.
If you need new ski gear for next season, start looking now! You can get lots of great deals on clothing and equipment that will save you a bundle of cash!
This will also help those who are new to skiing then booking your holiday now will give you plenty of time to get in those much-needed ski lessons but do this once you have booked your holiday.
Even if you have skied before a lesson or two could definitely be worth a go if you’re a bit rusty with the added benefit of giving excited kids a taste of what’s to come.
3. Snatch Up The Best Flights And Transfers
EasyJet, BA and Swiss Air have proven this with their latest flights out to the key Alps airports for very low prices.
Although you can argue you can get a good deal last minute, this won’t be the case with your flights and transfers and could then end up costing more overall!
Last year, we had a few of our guests who booked their New Year and Christmas flight early and saved £150+ per person, so book your accommodation, then your flights and relax!
2. Discover The Resort Right For Your Needs
We believe it’s so important to find a resort that matches your requirements and your ski experience. I mean, we wouldn’t send a complete beginner to St Anton as the majority of runs are for intermediates and advanced skiers and we would send a group of keen pounder hounds to a low-level resort such as Les Gets.
However, booking your ski holiday too late in the year (December onwards) means you might end up in a resort that doesn’t meet all your needs.

1. Discover The Accommodation Right For Your Needs
Just like I briefly explained before, if you book last minute you will have less choice of the ski resorts but also the accommodation on offer to you. This could then mean you don’t get to go to your first choice resort because the accommodation isn’t fit for your needs… Can you see a common pattern here?
It will be like opening a box of Christmas Celebration Chocolates and only having the choice of Mars and Bounty. I mean, they are still good but they are no Galaxy!
Last year, these were our fast selling accommodation choices of 2017/18:
- St Anton, Taja – 100% sold!
- Meribel – Les Fermes De Meribel – 93% beds sold
- Val d’Isere, Jura – 92% sold
So there you have it, out top 6 reasons to book your holiday early and get ahead of the crowd. Now check out what we still have available before the best dates and accommodation go!
