Make your resolution to have an unforgettable holiday experience in the New Year

Compared to this time last year, an increased number of people have already booked their ski holiday to start 2016 in the beautiful snowy mountains.

The ski season has well and truly started in Europe and there are many reasons why people are heading to the slopes; from the forecasted snowfall in early January, the decreased costs in Europe and the stunning scenery in the resorts.

According to the ninth annual Post Office Travel Money Ski Resort Report ( the value of sterling is the key factor in the changing fortunes of the ski resorts.

Andrew Brown of Post Office Travel Money said that while skiing costs remain competitive in Bulgaria and Solvenia, “our research reveals that long-established favourites in France, Austria and Italy are great value too.”

Christian holiday company, Richmond Holidays have also seen the dramatic increase in bookings for their quality ski-in, ski-out chalets in the French Alps, with the start of their season almost sold out. After expanding and opening a second 36-bed chalet in the Three Valleys for the 2015-16 ski season. Richmond’s popularity has taken off thanks to their unique quality Christian holidays.

There is still time to start 2016 on the slopes of the world’s largest ski resort in France with Richmond Holidays who offer a holiday with a difference. Each evening there is an opportunity to pause and meet, with a time of worship and bible-led teaching given by the Ministry Leader.

The Richmond experience offers a dedicated team of staff providing a champagne reception on arrival, three-course evening meals with canapés and complimentary wine every night. With comfortable bedrooms, roaring log fires and bubbling hot tubs it’s the perfect cosy retreat for soothing tired muscles after a tough day on the slopes.

Richmond has seen steady growth over the last 18 months, an achievement, which the company attribute to their emphasis and passion for delivering a high quality experience. The company, based in Poole, took over 500 people to their resort in the Alps last year, creating the need for a second chalet.

Adam Playfair, Managing Director of Richmond said:

“At Richmond Holidays, the Christian ethos remains central to who we are and for what we stand. Our aim is that all our guests experience a wonderful holiday with great worship, Bible-led teaching and leave feeling refreshed and encouraged.”

Their mission is to provide outstanding and memorable holidays for all members of the church family. Both alpine chalets enjoy outdoor hot tubs, saunas and balconies with stunning views across the mountains.

Rob Fielding, guest in December 2015 at Richmond’s new chalet in Le Bettaix, said:

“What a week!! Great chalet, great food and great service from the resort staff. The ritual post-ski hot tub and sauna brought the welcomed relaxation part of this fantastic holiday. See you in 2016.”
