First of all let us get the negatives out of the way. It can be more expensive to travel around New Year but to counter that there are many great deals available, especially from Club Med. It can be a little noisy if you choose a resort where all night partying is the norm. Equally, you might also ruin your own skiing experience by indulging a little too much because, after all, it is New Year. However, that is about it as far as the drawbacks to skiing at the end of the year.
Now for the positives. The snow is good, the staff are ready to please, there is a sense of celebration in the air and there is likely to be something going on in every resort. It is up to you whether you want to join in and that is true for singles, couples and families.
For those with kids you can join up a fairytale Christmas in the snow with the end of the year for a true week to remember. Ever seen fireworks in the mountains? They will be spectacular. You can also avoid the slight sense of disappointment that can happen post Christmas on January 1st when you realize that the festive season is over for another year. It certainly isn't over when you are on your ski holiday.
