Christmas Ski Holiday: Where Can I Ski?

An important question for skiers that seems to be of growing concern due to the weather conditions over the past few years: Is there even snow in the Alps during Christmas? The answer: Definitely!

You also can't go wrong with Zillertal: With the Zillertaler Superskipass, you have access to a huge selection of pistes and ski areas. In the Hintertux Glacier ski area alone, you'll experience a snow-packed time on the pistes during the holidays. Even in Germany, on the glacier of the Zugspitze or in Switzerland in the "Matternhorn ski paradise" near Zermatt, a lack of snow is practically unheard of! That being said, it's not just ski areas with glaciers, like Les 3 Vallées and Sölden, that make for a snow-sure Christmas: The high-lying ski areas, such as Chamonix in France or Ischgl in Austria, generally have enough snow during Christmas and New Year's to provide for a satisfactory winter holiday.
