The build up to the ski season is well and truly underway. The kids are back at school, there's a real autumnal feel in the air, the first Christmas cards have been spotted in the shops - all the traditional signs that winter is on it's way.
Take a look at the Promotions area on Chalets Direct and you will find well over 300 great offers for this ski season in resorts all over Europe. The promotions include offers such as specialised ski coaching in Tignes, aimed to get intermediate skiers to ski "confidently, easily and effortlessly." More high quality coaching and instruction is available with the Warren Smith Ski academy in Verbier during January 2009.
Money saving offers include offers on flights, free group places, discounts for booking soon, free lift passes and free child places. Discounts are available from 10% off in Morzine, Les Menuires, St Gervais, and 15% off in Grindelwald.
If the idea of a white Christmas is tempting, then there are some attractive festive offers, with traditional turkey dinners and all the trimmings, Brown Bear Lodge for example has availability for their truly special White Christmas in the Portes du Soleil, or Chalet Algonquin in Les Arcs has a fully catered Xmas week, including a 5 course Christmas dinner and present from under the tree at just £550 per adult.
There are also some great short breaks and long weekends available. A long weekend catered ski break, Wednesday to Sunday, in the Grand Massif, just an hour from Geneva airport, for example will set you back just £230.
So if you're wondering where to spend your ski holiday this winter the Promotions and Special Offers could help you make up your mind.
