Topflight’s Top Tips on why January is a great time to take to the piste

Prolong that festive feeling by hitting the slopes.

The conditions early in the year are perfect, with colder temperatures ensuring that the mountains maintain their irresistible powdery state and the cosy Austrian resorts offer a warm, welcoming retreat in the evening time. Wrap up all cosy and warm, get the very best piste conditions and perhaps enjoy a warming aprés-ski drink in the evening time.

Smaller crowds, smaller prices.

With Christmas and New Year being popular times for ski breaks, the resorts can be busy and the prices high, which is why January offers the perfect solution. If a price effective holiday and smaller queues for the ski lifts is appealing to you, then this is the perfect time to take to the mountains!

New Year, New You.

We all kick-start each new year with a ream of good intentions, but this is a resolution that’s easy to keep. Not only is a ski holiday one of the most fun trips you’ll ever have, skiing and snowboarding provide great workouts, improving your strength, stamina, and fitness. And let’s face it, cruising through the snow, high up in the gorgeous snow-capped mountains, breathing in the fresh alpine air, beats a week at the gym any day.

And for a little ‘me’ time?

Not only are Austrian ski holidays great for the fun-filled days of snow sports and activities but most of the resorts and hotels pack a real punch when it comes to relaxing and indulgent wellness facilities too. What could be better than a sauna or whirlpool or perhaps a full body massage after exerting yourself on the slopes. If that’s not starting off the year on the right foot, we don’t know what is.
