‘Pinch me’ views, slope stories, après fun and quality time with family and friends – there’s so much more to a ski holiday than you might expect. Here are five of the best things to look forward to on a trip with Crystal Ski Holidays…

The skiing & snowboarding

There’s no better feeling than being in the mountains. Setting off for ski school with your fellow newbies, making your first turns, falling down and getting back up again – you’ll be on top of the world (and sometimes quite literally). But first things first, get the lowdown on some of the top ski resorts for beginners.

The mountain food

Food is a huge part of the ski holiday experience, from slope side lunches on mountain terraces to cosy hotel restaurants. And there are must-try dishes to suit every taste, whether you fancy gooey fondue in France, authentic pizza in Italy or crispy schnitzel in Austria.

The après-ski

When the end of the day rolls around, it’s all about après fun – dance on tables in your ski boots to live music, sip a glass of local wine in a laid-back bar or simply catch up and swap stories from your day.

The adventures

Make your trip even more memorable with must-do winter activities. There are loads of resorts where you can zoom around on a snowmobile or soar among the peaks on a paragliding flight. And some have even more unique picks, like ice diving and Olympic bobsleighing.

The spas

What better way to warm up than with pools, hot tubs and treatments? Wellness has been a part of mountain culture for centuries, from the thermal springs of Austria and Canada to the saunas of Scandinavia.
