Ski season – the perfect excuse to slope off and indulge in a well-earned break this winter.
And whether you’re bored with Courchevel of Klosters, prefer the après-ski to the snowy slopes or are left feeling a little cold by the idea of heading for chillier climes, don’t worry – I’ve an unusual alternative or two up my woolly winter sleeves that’ll have you taking-off quicker than a ski-lift.
If (like me!) you struggle to stay up-right on a set of skis, ice skating could be your best baby-step forward this ski season. And with open-air skating rinks appearing by London’s iconic landmarks, there’s never been a better time to get your skates on!
Whether you’d like to speed across the rink or tentatively find your way across the ice, you’ll be able to choose from rinks by canary wharf, the London Eye, the Natural History museum, the Tower of London and Somerset House.
And remember to check our London hotel offers before taking to the ice this winter!
If you’re bored of ski-ing, why not try snowboarding? And where better to get a taste of the après-ski night-life than Glasgow!
Hit the real indoor snow slopes at Glasgow’s Xscape centre before heading into the city centre for some winter warming drinks and Christmas shopping (in the best city shopping district outside of London!). Or, if you’re with the family, take the little ones to play in the snow and see Santa in his snow-side hut.
Don’t forget to check our Glasgow hotel offers if you’re planning a city break to ease your winter boredom.
Even if you can’t tear yourself from the ski slopes, you could make the most of your ski holiday choosing somewhere sunny for a change.
Visit the first indoor ski resort in the Middle East -at Ski Dubai you can ski, board and toboggan before sunning yourself among the golden city’s glittering skyscrapers and golden beaches.
Why not look through our Dubai hotel offers before skiing off into the sun this winter.
