Let’s talk about the first week of January in Morzine. It is the quietest week of the season, the snow lovers secret! This is when ski lift car parks are void of English number plates and full of locals number plates. All because they know and we know: this is the best time for winter sports.

Meet Roby – the marketing and social media extraordinaire! I was saying to Roby there are 3 quiet weeks. The first 2 in January and the one before Easter holidays. Roby, who grew up skiing in her native Italy, asked ‘is that because there is not enough snow is January?’ To which I was surprised, because it is the best of the season: heaven is January ski day on repeat. Then I thought, could this be a popular misconception? Do others avoid January because they think the snow will be bad?

Why January skiing the is best

  1. Pistes are at their quietest. January is a sort of no mans land between school holidays.
  2. Snow is at its best because it is generally a little cooler with the sun being lower in the sky so the snow stays fluffy and light. I.e the snow that floats up onto your jacket, the snow that you can clear with your breath like blowing out a candle, the snow that makes the world go quiet as it falls and muffles any noise, the snow that lets you study individual flakes as they land on you on a chair lift.
  3. A lot of people seem to have a strong dislike for January in the U.K whereas we are at our best then.

So come see us in the first two week of January and, like all guests that come then, you are sure to come back!
