With a chill in the air and Christmas fast approaching, many of us are dreaming of roaring fires, cosy evenings in and maybe a glass or two of mulled wine. But winter can also bring with it a dose of the blues. Cold days and dark nights can make the prospect of venturing out unappealing.

However, staying active and getting out and about during daylight hours is the best way to maintain a sense of well-being during the colder months. Winter can seem to go on forever, and trying to stay happy and motivated while commuting in the drizzle and trudging to the supermarket in the snow can sometimes be a tall order. So now we will show you how to hit the slopes for less in 2013.

going on a ski holiday

This can be especially true for parents with children and babies to entertain. Trying to keep the little angels busy and happy on a rainy day in the UK can be taxing to say the least, and so many parents are searching for ways to put the whizz back into winter. With this in mind, winter breaks are becoming increasingly popular. Those wishing to combine fitness and fun may want to consider a ski break.

Once seen as the privilege of the rich and famous, skiing is now open to all. With many holiday companies competing for business in the current economic climate by offering group and family discounts, there’s never been a better time to book, whether you’re a pro or a beginner. Crystal Ski in 2013, for example, is offering a variety of great value deals that could see you hitting the slopes in no time. With early booking discounts and a variety of resorts to choose from, finding the right holiday doesn’t have to be hard work.

Ski vacation tips

When searching for your ski break it’s worth making a list of all your vacation requirements so you can make an informed choice. Families, for example, should look for skiing resorts offering kids ski schools, children’s clubs and baby-sitting services. Crystal also offer childcare shopping services in their chalets in La Plagne, La Rosiere, La Tania, Les Arcs, Meribel, Tignes, Val d’Isere and Val Thorens so you can pre-order essentials such as nappies, baby wipes and jars of food when travelling with the tots in tow.

Many holiday companies offer free kids places for children aged between two and 13 years of age, depending on accommodation choice, so a ski break for the family needn’t cost the earth. Groups may want to consider something different for their winter break. Instead of heading off to a cottage in the Cotswolds, why not see in the New Year in a chalet in the Alps? Groups of 10 people or more can often benefit from tremendous discounts and a host of other booking incentives, so it’s worth shopping around for the best deal.

So before you go into hibernation mode this winter, why not book yourself a ski break, recharge your batteries and start 2013 off in style.
