Book ski tours in summer

Book ski tours in the summer? This is the time of year when one is glad to finally escape the cold, wet and uncomfortable time of winter. We prefer to sit on the shores of a lake, a river or the sea and enjoy a huge sundae with a beautiful view of the surrounding area. Or we enjoy the warmth and sunshine on a road trip across the mountains, where at most we occasionally see a glacier. Winter Holidays? Ski? This is then far away and usually does not reappear in our minds until the first snow falls in December. If any! Often this is not known until January. Only - then it is usually much too late to book ski trips or winter holidays, as we imagine.

Why you should book ski tours in the summer

There are many reasons for talking about the coming winter and the next ski season for at least a few hours. They show why you should book your trip in the next ski season now. Finally, your winter holiday and your ski trip should be a very special experience, right? Here we summarize the points that speak for an early planning:

  • Ski tours usually take place at seasons

Most people use the Christmas holidays, the Easter holidays or the long weekend during the carnival season for a few days out in the mountains. Then year after year, the caravans of cars with ski luggage roll on the roof from the north to the Alps. Skiers arrive at the airlines' flight operators, who transport skiers across the pond to the great US ski resorts or the Canadian Rockies. Your ski baggage makes it clear what kind of trip you want to travel across the Atlantic. The snow-sure areas in the Rocky Mountains, the Sierra Nevada or the coastal mountains of western Canada attract skiers from Europe every year. You want to enjoy the snowy ski resorts of North America.

If you want to book your ski trip shortly before departure, it is often no longer possible to fulfill your wishes or expectations regarding the accommodation or the ski area. Many accommodations are then fully booked.

  • In the summer, early bird prices are offered

A particularly valid argument, why you should book ski tours in the summer, are the often very favorable early booker prices. Many hotels offer accommodation at very low prices during the hot season. They want to fill their rooms in winter. There are often real bargains to make. With a bit of luck you can get four-star hotels with a perfect location to the ski area for up to 50% less. You only have to book early. The best way to do this is in ski areas that are high enough so that enough snow is available. Then your ski holiday will be a great experience.

  • Book in snow reliable ski areas

Many are waiting to book their ski holiday to the last possible opportunity to ensure there is enough snow in the ski resort of their choice. Understandable, if you look at the snow conditions in the Alps during the winter of recent years. Often it is snowing very late in winter. The ski holiday that you were looking forward to falls into the water because there is not enough snow. You can easily avoid this by choosing ski resorts that reliably deliver high amounts of snow. This is the case in the high altitudes of the Alps. The snow conditions in the mountains of North America are just as good or even better. There are ski resorts with snow depths of several meters. There it would have to go with the devil, that no snow falls. In these regions, moreover, the fares call for early booking. Many airlines offer much lower rates months before the trip starts than just before.

What do they eat in this region?" As a freelance travel journalist (her articles have appeared in DIE ZEIT, 360° Canada, 360° USA, etc.), she is now looking for answers to these questions as a travel writer and travel blogger in many countries around the world.
