Christmas Ski Holidays 2019

Escape to the mountains on an adults-only Christmas Ski Holiday with The Ski Gathering

A white Christmas in the mountains with good company and you, why not!

Make the end of 2019 different and escape with a group of sociable like-minded people enjoying Christmas ski holidays in The Alps. Welcome to The Ski Gathering. What could be better than Christmas in a snow-draped winter cabin? No stressful last-minute shopping. No slaving in the kitchen. Just you, the mountains and some amazing people!

A white Christmas

What better setting can there be for a magical Christmas than an Alpine chalet blanketed in thick white snow, surrounded by glistening tree-tops? After a leisurely breakfast, head out and enjoy the world-class skiing right on your doorstep. The log fire will be roaring when you return for mince pies. Christmas doesn't get much merrier than this.

Everything taken care of

It's a holiday time, so relax and let us do all the hard work for you. No slaving in the kitchen: we'll have dinner ready for you after your day on the slopes. You won't have to lift a finger. Anything we can do to make your Christmas even better? Please tell us about it. No hassle, no stress — just a relaxing and sociable Christmas day with like-minded people. Good company, great food, world-class skiing.

Skiing on Christmas Day


When you wake, head downstairs for a tasty Christmas breakfast. The ski lifts and ski schools all run as normal today so, whenever you're ready, just head for the slopes. Unforgettable white-Christmas skiing awaits...

On the Slopes

The choice is yours: ski with the group or do your own thing. Some like to form small groups of similar experience levels or interests; others like to strike out on an adventure of their own. It's completely up to you.

Evening & Dinner

Meet for a Christmas tipple at the aprés ski, or head back to the chalet to get the first slice of Christmas cake. A delicious Christmas dinner awaits — you won't have to lift a finger. Then, grab a festive drink with the rest of the gang, or hit the hay ready for tomorrow's ski adventure.

Adults-only Christmas Ski Holidays

No children or families

Kids are great fun, but there are lots of reasons why grown-up company might be preferable, especially at Christmas. That's why The Ski Gathering offers exclusively adults-only ski holidays. Meet friendly people, experience world-class skiing, enjoy good grown-up company.

Shared chalet

The Ski Gathering is ideal for individuals and pairs looking to share a chalet at Christmas. Many chalet companies do not offer shared chalets Christmas week, favouring large groups who will take exclusive use. But that leaves out all the single skiers and the small groups of two or three who would like a catered ski holiday, but can't fill a chalet on their own.

Adults-Only Ski Holidays

Frequently Asked Questions

Who will be there?

You will be sharing the chalet with other independent travellers just like you, plus perhaps some groups of two or three skiers who already know each other but would like to mix with others. There will be a full range of abilities from day-one beginners to seasoned veterans of the slopes.

Is this a Christmas Holiday?

Yes, with jingle bells on. The chalet will be decorated, there will be Christmas treats, a traditional dinner, the works. That said, if Christmas isn't your thing, nobody will be telling you how to have fun. There are no formal or pre-arranged group activities. Just good company, great skiing and Christmas in a winter cabin. What's not to love?

Is this a dating holiday?

No. The Ski Gathering does not offer "dating ski holidays" or "ski holidays for singles", as such. Instead, we tend to think of our ski trips as shared chalet holidays for individual skiers and sociable solo travellers.

Can couples come along?

Absolutely, sociable couples are very welcome. Just ask us for your own double or twin room (n.b. all rooms are single-sex except by request by mixed-sex couples). Enjoy time as a two when you want to, join the rest group when it suits.

How is this different from a regular shared chalet?

Firstly, we offer adults-only ski holidays, so there are no children or teenagers. Perhaps more importantly, everyone who books has chosen to share their ski holiday with other outgoing and friendly people.

Will my extras be organised for me?

Yes, just let us know what you need and we will get everything sorted for you, hassle-free. We can arrange your lift pass, your ski hire and your ski lessons, if applicable. Happy to help.

What age and sex are the other people?

A broad spectrum of age groups join our holidays. Our holidays tend to be balanced between a mix of younger people and more mature people. We have an "over 18" only policy in most of our chalets but our guests tend to be older than 21. We do have holidays for specific age groupes which you can find here. It can depend on the specific group but the balance between male and female guests tends to be about 50/50.

When should I arrive?

The best time to arrive (when possible) is some time in the mid afternoon of the first day. If however you need to arrive in resort at another time we will do our best to accommodate you. The reason we recommend mid afternoon on the first day is because it give you an excellent chance to meet the other guests

I've just done two back to back weeks with The Ski Gathering over Christmas and New Year and the whole journey was absolutely brilliant. On both weeks I've met people who I'd like to keep in my life forever, the food was divine and the hosts and staff were exceptional in every way..
