It is that time of year when summer is coming to a close and winter holiday-makers start to dream of the powder on the slopes. Have you been considering an Austrian ski holiday this year? If your answer is yes then there is no time like to present to book! I am always surprised by how few people take advantage of the perks to booking their ski holidays early. There are many advantages to planning in advance that are worth considering, read on for our top 5…
With the current strength of the sterling vs. the euro, there is a substantial cost savings to booking and pre-paying for your luxury ski vacation now. You can lock in the current rate simply by committing to your dates and making a pre-payment. In addition, you can pre-pay for lessons, ski equipment and more.
- Scheduling and Ski Chalet Availability
There is a considerable amount of effort that goes into choosing your holiday dates and making the necessary arrangements to be away during your chosen time frame (especially if you plan to travel in a group). Avoid disappointment by booking early so you can secure your desired dates.
- Training for the slopes
Make the most out of your ski holiday by training in advance. There are several exercises you can do that won’t take much of your time, but will truly enhance your performance on the slopes. The more advance time you have to train, the better your performance will be. In addition you will be less-likely to injure yourself!
- Avoid Crowds
Choose the dates/times that are less likely to be busy and avoid all the ski-slope traffic. If you plan in advance you can avoid any of the bank holiday weekends or plan your holiday for the beginning or end of the season when there are less people.
- Early-bird specials
Generally there are early-booking specials for ski chalet accommodations, rentals and lift tickets if you book early. To find out more about them visit www.obergurgl.com.
