Fast forward to January 2018…. Christmas is over, your New Year Resolutions have yet to start and the kids are reluctantly back at school… But it’s not all doom and gloom because it’s time to ski away those January blues and enjoy that skiing holiday that you deserve.
We should never need to justify the need to go skiing, but just in case you need reminding why Jan is one of the best months to hit the slopes, here are our top 5 reasons;
1. Amazing ski conditions
It may only be early December, but Verbier is already open, in great shape and has had one of the best starts to the season for years. As the weather gets colder here in the UK, fresh powder has been blanketing the slopes of Verbier, with almost 2 metres of fluffy white snow expected over the next week or so.

2. Quieter slopes, shorter queues
The thought of skiing so soon after an expensive Christmas and New Year may seem extortionate to some, but if you can find the time and money to hit the slopes in Jan then you will be rewarded. Minimise your time queuing for the lifts and maximise your time on the slopes
3. Excellent chalet options
Unable to take a full week off work so soon after the festive celebrations? Fear not as we have some fantastic short break accommodation options throughout Jan. Furthermore, if you’re unable to fill a chalet then we have some amazing shared chalet options too. If you are a group of 6-12 people, then benefit from wonderful exclusive chalet options in Verbier.

4. Cheaper airfares
Verbier is less than 2 hours from Geneva and flights into the ‘Gateway to the Alps’ are frequent and affordable throughout January. Choose from reputable airlines such as Swiss, British Airways and EasyJet. With return flights from as little as £69 per person, all-in, getting to the slopes is more affordable than you think.
5. Bragging rights
What better way to make your friends and colleagues envious by sharing those ‘blue bird powder day’ images on Facebook and Twitter? If you do, spare a thought for all those back behind their desks trying to complete ‘Dry January’…. But don’t let that put you off, it’s time to book that catered chalet holiday to Verbier with Ski Armadillo!
