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...

This is the 4th year we have stayed at Mont Blanc, we have opted for the en suite accommodation in PMB. If you are looking for 5 star luxury look else where as you will be disappointed, if however, you are looking for a fun friendly atmosphere where you can wear slippers or ski boots for a week then...

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......
