Ski-Lifts Top Tips for Travelling at Peak Times
Peak times in ski resorts can be exhilarating, with pristine slopes and cosy chalets awaiting. But they can also be a bit of a logistical challenge. Fear not, fellow snow enthusiast! We are here with some valuable tips to make travelling at peak times smoother and more cost-effective. Our fantastic airport transfers to over 200 ski resorts in 15 countries ensure your journey is hassle-free.
Travel Smart, Save Big
Skiing on a budget? Planning your trip around peak times can still be wallet-friendly if you follow these tips.
Timing Is Everything
The majority of travellers start their journey to the slopes on Saturdays, which drives up prices for flights and airport transfers. To avoid this, consider shifting your travel dates by just one day—either depart on Friday or wait until Sunday. Not travelling at peak times is a small adjustment that can save you a bundle.
⇒ Beat the Crowds
Travelling on non-peak days means quieter airports, shorter queues, and smoother check-ins. Imagine breezing through security, sipping on a latte while others rush. Plus, the roads to your resort will be less congested, ensuring you reach your snowy haven faster.
⇒ Enjoy Serene Slopes
Skiing on a Saturday while others travel has its perks too! Fewer skiers on the slopes mean shorter lift lines and more pristine runs. So, why not trade a travel day for a skiing day?
Saturday Survival Guide
If your heart is set on a Saturday departure during peak times, fear not. We have strategies to help you make the most of it.
⇒ Rise and Shine
Opt for an early morning flight to beat the travel rush. Early flights tend to be less affected by delays, ensuring a smoother start to your day.
⇒ Seek Hidden Gems
Consider smaller airports as alternatives to major hubs like Geneva. While they might have fewer flights, they often offer a more relaxed travel experience and can save you both time and money.
⇒ Explore Off the Beaten Track
Don’t overlook lesser-known ski resorts. Venturing off the beaten path can lead you to hidden gem resorts that are less crowded and more budget friendly. We love Sainte Foy in the Alps which is becoming popular with families who enjoy its laid-back atmosphere and Valloire famous as a point on the classic Tour de France route or for something completely different we highly recommend visiting the ski resorts in the Pyrenees. Resorts like Soldeu with long wide blues and reds and no lift queues make for happy days on the slopes!
