The first snow of 2019 arrives in the Alps

DUMP ALERT!

It’s been a dry, but beautiful few weeks in the Alps with wall to wall sunshine. Austria seemed to have stolen all the snow at the start of the year but the skies have opened again and we have finally had some more snow! Luckily the snow cannons have been out in the resorts, so there has been some powder to ski on, but we’ve missed the fresh snow. Last night saw a heavy snowfall and again this morning. We took these photos outside our lodge in Peisey Vallandry. Around 8cm fell earlier today and a bit more is on its way tonight.

If you've yet to book your budget chalet holiday this season, we've got some unmissable deals for you. One of our lodges in Vallandry is available for a week from Saturday 26th January 2019. Lodge 3 was recently renovated and sleeps 10-12 people. It's available on a B&B basis for £1,500 (based on 12 people staying that's just £175 per person for a week's skiing!) with return airport transfers included, so all you need to do is bring yourselves and your equipment. Half board catering is available for an extra £50 per person.

Alternatively we have a special deal running on catered holidays in February and March (selected dates). £399 per person for 7 nights with return transfers and half board accommodation included. See more on our special offers page.

We hosted our first mini coach weekend last Friday and will be going out again this weekend to Vallandry. This is an ideal opportunity to squeeze in a couple days skiing and be back before work on Monday. Our last weekend will be 18th-20th January. Find out more info on our mad weekend here.

We'll keep you updated with more photos, videos and news as well as the latest forecasts, so keep an eye on our website and social media for details. Hope you all have a good week!

Customer Reviews

My girlfriend and I stayed in Vallandry with Hucksters for 6 days and had a great time with a very friendly environment including not only the staff, but also the other customers. The room was also nice, warm and very functional with the slopes only few meters away from the chalet. Therefore and acc...

Just a quick note to thank you all for hosting the Bennett clan the other week, we had a great time and are hoping to return with Hucksters for the new year.

The staff were more like friends than employees and knew the area very well. Can't fault them. They sorted an issue with my wife's ski pass with as little stress as was possible. To start your day of skiing one had only to walk about 20m from the door, pop your skis on and off you go. You could eit...

I look each year to find a better value ski holiday and fail. I love the staff, the resort and the accomodation. And the coach, to me it makes flying very uncomfortable and un civilised, Dont change a thing Hucksters you are providing exactly what I want. Roll on next season......

By dispensing with things such as towels and complimentary toiletries (bring your own) and guaranteed en suite bathrooms, Hucksters has managed to create accommodation that is definitely communal and cheap but in that no-frills way that makes you feel pretty smug at the money you are saving. It has ...
