Going skiing with friends can be great fun. Whether you are a band of party people or simply seeking the thrill of skiing, there’s something for every group.
So, you want to ski with friends?
Leisure and relaxation
Skiing is a sport that brings a real feeling of well-being. It is an opportunity to get away from it all and forget the routine of everyday life. You can clear your mind and see the world from a new perspective… even if just for a few days.
It goes without saying that whatever type of skiing holiday you and your friends are looking for, you’re bound to have a blast. Whether you’re more the après-ski types or more likely to be found in a hot tub overlooking a beautiful mountain view, skiing with friends is great for building friendship. By spending time together in the mountains, you can make memories and bonds that will last a lifetime.
Sleeping muscles will certainly be awakened while skiing. If your friends are into doing activities together, skiing will allow you to do this to a whole new altitude.
Relieve some stress
Been all work and no play lately? Getting screen-free and doing something fun and physical like skiing will do wonders to centre you and restore a sense of peace. Take it out on the mountains – that snow is there to be tackled! And what better way than to do it with all of your very best friends?
When is the best time to go with friends?
During the month of December is a great time, or towards the end of January. Consider going when there are no school holidays, to avoid the family crowds. Unless you’re all going as a group of families, in which case the more the merrier!
In January you will find that snow is often in its best condition, and snow is in abundance. And since there are no major school holiday periods during this time, you will often find that accommodation is cheaper and more available than in February.
