When is the best time to go skiing in Meribel?

by Brian Klais

When you decide to go on your skiing holiday, one thing you should be thinking about very far in advance is when the best times to go skiing are. Obviously you are probably going to have a lot of fun with your skiing in any scenario, but there are set times of year and specific months that are going to be a lot better than others. The most obvious separation of peak times is going to be through the summer months, as you can’t expect the snow to be anywhere near at this time of year and at this time for the mostpart the ski resorts will have closed for the summer anyway, as in the offseason the alps are actually very well known for being a prime location to go for other sports that are more associated with warmer climates such as mountain bike trails up the mountains. This in itself is an enjoyable activity, but when you are going to Meribel for a chillier reception November until around April is the time window that you have to make it the best holiday that you have ever had.

Determining which of these months actually the best to go skiing is is really quite difficult, as there could be so many factors that play a part in it. The first thing that you would probably look to think about would be that of the time of year when the best natural snow is. Whilst most skiing companies that have resorts will have top of the line snow machines that give a good layering of new snow every single day it will never quite compare to feeling fresh snow on your brow or going down the mountain in general. It gives the whole experience a more authentic feel and is going to mean that you and your family have a much more enjoyable experience with it. Natural snow is for the mostpart smoother and softer so you are going to glide through the snow and have a nice cushion of fresh snow to rest on if you should fall over aswell. This actually makes a considerable amount of difference when it comes to a skiing experience, and so for the best snow around and the most magical experience in a skiing holiday make sure that you look from anywhere between December and February, probably leaning towards February as this is when the most natural snow comes down.

There are obviously other things besides the better snow that you need to consider when going skiing though. It must be taken into account that a holiday is a holiday for a reason, and that you need the right sort of period to take your time off. For those that work and have holiday days that they can book out this is less of a problem, as they can fit their holiday into pretty much any time of the year. This has certain exceptions as certain time periods in a field such as retail would require you to be in work around Christmas time, probably resulting in extra pay on these days. This is a very positive notion as February is a good time for the snow aswell, and so you get double the benefit. However, you will obviously need to tread carefully and be very diligent about trying to fit this time in if you have children, as bank holidays may be about the only time that you can manage to go on holiday without causing any upset.
