Ski Week is a snow holiday that allows you to disconnect and combine the relaxation of a trip with fun and healthy activities on the slopes.
Don’t like skiing and don’t plan on snowboarding? No problem.
There are countless activities you can do in the snow ranging from sledding, which requires no knowledge or special skills, to snowshoeing, which only requires a little physical strength and resistance (here you will find all the activities you can do in the snow snow).
White week 2024
The periods of November and March are the cheapest to organize a ski week.
In November, however, you have to be very careful because the snow is not always already present on the slopes and the climate can be too warm to guarantee beautiful, powdery snow on the artificially snowed slopes.
In some ski resorts such as Les Deux Alpes you ski all year round, even in summer, taking advantage of high altitude glacier snow.
If you don’t have the time and money available to afford a whole week of skiing, it’s not the end of the world: you can always organize a weekend or a day in the snow at the ski resorts near Rome, near Milan or near Turin ( here you can find all information about skiing near Rome and here about skiing near Milan).
Many of these ski resorts are also accessible by public transport).
Here you will find all the information on the most suitable clothes for a ski holiday, the things you should definitely pack and tips for those going on a ski holiday for the first time, as well as the best ski resorts.
White Week is a holiday that can be quite expensive. You need to rent ski equipment, stay in a hotel near the slopes, often in destinations famous for the presence of excellent ski lifts and beautiful slopes. But this is not always the case.
There are many ski resorts where the price of a ski pass, equipment rental and accommodation is affordable and, with a few precautions, you can have a low-cost ski holiday.
By renting an apartment, for example, you have the opportunity to cook at home and eat a sandwich on the slopes, perhaps leaving with a car loaded with abundant and cheap groceries!
There are many low budget solutions for sleeping very close to the slopes. Here you will find, for example, the best hostels where you can sleep in the snow at a low cost and without losing the comfort of sleeping a stone’s throw from the ski lifts in a relaxing and beautiful environment.
