The Best Half-Term Ski Holiday Deals

Kids having a half-term ski lessonTake Your Family Skiing This February Half-Term

Fancy a last minute ski trip this half-term? Take a look at some of the best deals available in our Alpine holiday run down. 

Many families avoided the usual early season booking rush for ski resort places this year thanks to the decidedly bleak outlook with regard to the weather. Decent snow was at a premium and, without the white stuff, keeping the kids happy would be anything but a holiday for parents looking to relax for a few days!

Thankfully, however, all that has changed in 2016, and there has been huge amounts of snow falling across the Alps since January 1st. Now the February half-term trip is very much back on the cards, but are there still any decent deals available? Let’s take a look.

Close To The Slopes Convenience

For those who want to be right in the thick of the action, but don’t want to break the bank, are hard to beat. Book a holiday at the wonderful Hotel Haut de Tovieres in the French resort of Tignes and you’ll receive two-for-one equipment hire as well as free lift passes and equipment for the kids. The hotel is right on top of the Pacquis and Chaudanne lifts, making it an extremely convenient choice for those who wish to minimise the amount of travelling they have to do while they are away.
