How to get the most out of your ski trip
For those seeking to satisfy their powder-cravings, the ski season is the best time of the year. But, how can you really make the most of it? It can sometimes be too easy to let your holiday fly by in a flash. Think of it as a ‘blink and you’ll miss it’ situation!

But, we all love our slopes, so we’re here to make sure that doesn’t happen. Here’s how to get the most from your ski holiday.

Set Yourself a Challenge

Each ski holiday should be different from the last! So, next time you hit the pistes – push yourself.

Even the biggest adrenaline junkies out there can find something new to discover each holiday. Ever been off-piste? Tackled the toughest run? Now’s your chance to try!

Every resort has its own challenges and a fresh set of slopes. Take advantage of this!

Don’t Book During Peak Season

Looking for quieter pistes? Don’t go skiing during peak season.

As the name suggests, peak season will result in busier slopes and longer lift queues.

There’s nothing quite like seeing the empty slopes in front of you, so book your holiday during off-peak times. Make those first tracks into untouched snow!

Another bonus of booking during off-peak times? The prices are cheaper! Save yourself money to spend at après-ski.

Get the Right Ski Gear

Want the best ski holiday possible? Make sure you’re equipped with all the right gear.

Inadequate clothing will ruin your day and make it finish early. Good ski wear makes all the difference!

Forget About Relaxation

When making the most of the slopes, you don’t have time to relax. Save your spa trips for another holiday!

You’re here to conquer the pistes, that’s all. Relaxation will only eat away at your precious slope-time!  

Get There Early

You want the whole day on the slopes, not half the day!

Who cares if you got in late the night before? There’s nothing quite like cool mountain air to wake you up.
 
Heading to the slopes around lunchtime will see half your day on the mountain wasted. So, remember to set your alarm!

Plan in Advance

Want to get the most out of the slopes? Plan ahead!

We’re all guilty of making plans that we never stick to. But, planning can be useful when trying to get the most out of your skiing holiday.

Having a rough ‘itinerary’ can help you make the most of your day.

Get Fit Beforehand

Want to make this ski holiday the best yet? Don’t risk any sore muscles or broken bones!

Getting into shape before you head to the mountain should ensure your holiday doesn’t end prematurely. There are many exercises you can do to prepare your body for the sudden shock of the slopes, such as squats and lunges.

Stay safe out there!

Learn How to Tackle Tough Weather. Make sure that bad weather won’t put you off your slope-stride!
For many skiers, adverse weather conditions can ruin their holiday. Don’t let this be you!

Detox from Your Screen Addiction

Far too often, we see skiers taking a photo of the mountain rather than skiing down it.

As tempting as it can be to take pictures of the views, shutting yourself off from your phone is a good idea.

The slopes have no time for screens!

Have a Go at Night Skiing

If you’re powder-fix is still unfulfilled by the end of the day, why not give night skiing a go?

Skiing at night means doubling your time on the slopes. What’s not to like?

Remember to do your research beforehand, as not all resorts offer it.

But, if you can, don’t miss out on this experience!
