Skiing in January, why we love it

Empty pristine pistes, light fluffy snow, the Alps at their best

Why January skiing is best

I was chatting with a friend who asked is there enough snow in January? I spat out my tea and said you must never have been to the microclimates driven by Lake Geneva (Lac Leman) and Mont Blanc –  The Portes Du Soleil or the Grand Massif. January skiing is skiing at its best, heaven is January ski days on repeat. Then I thought, could this be a popular misconception? Do others avoid January because they think the snow will be bad?

Top 3 reasons we LOVE January ski days

  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!
