Few things can be more memorable than a romantic ski trip with the love of your love. Whether you are planning a special getaway with someone special or you are thinking about honeymoon destinations or even an anniversary holiday with your partner, ski holidays offer a combination of sights, sounds and activities that are quite unlike anything else on this planet. There is something about escaping to a snowy paradise with your love that lends itself to romance, somehow.
Getting the Most From Your Romantic Ski Trip
To help you get the most from your ski trip, we have put together a simple guide on where to stay, when to go and what to avoid.
Some of the most important things to consider when planning your romantic ski trip include the following:
Where to stay
It does not get more romantic than The Alps. Spanning over 19,000km, across eight countries, The Alps is one of the largest and highest mountain ranges in the world. The most sought-after Alpine regions include France, Italy and Switzerland. Here, you will find some of the most spectacular resorts imaginable, offering all-inclusive luxury and a host of things to see, do and experience. Top resorts in this region include Club Med Cervinia, Club Med Val D’Isere, Club Med Val Thorens Sensations, and Club Med Grand Massif Samoëns Morillon. All of these resorts provide 4-star luxury that is sure to be perfect for honeymoons, anniversaries and any other romantic break.
When to go
If you are hoping to ski, it makes sense to plan your trip to be there when snowfall is at its peak. Typically, the best months for a ski holiday are between December and April – the northern hemisphere winter months. During this time, snow is at its highest, giving you the best conditions for skiing as well as related activities such as tobogganing and snowboarding. Leaving it too late in the year or arriving too early may mean that you end up spending less time on the slopes. If you plan your trip for year-end, you can have the added magic of a Christmas or New Year in the heart of a genuine winter wonderland. It doesn’t get more romantic than giant lit up trees, ice skating, hot drinks by the fire and other festivities.
What to avoid
Aside from going too early or late in the year, some other things to watch out for include resorts that are not all-inclusive, resorts that cater primarily to families, resorts that do not provide easy access to slopes, booking too late for your trip (this can make it harder to find the right resort), not thinking about where you want to be based, and following advice from friends and family without doing any of your own homework.
Once you have made your plans, you can look forward to the fun part… counting down the days to your once-in-a-lifetime ski trip!
