Samoëns: surge in demand for accommodation in French ski villages

The ski season might have only just finished, but skiers and snowboarders are already booking up for next year — with leading tour operators offering competitive early booking deals.

French Alps specialist Peak Retreats yesterday reported an “early surge” in demand for availability and urged skiers to book early to secure their preferred accommodation.

Xavier Schouller, managing director of Peak Retreats, says: “Our well-informed clients have already booked for February half-term 2015 or are doing so now! The main reason for this is that next year the week 14-21 February (the busiest week of the season in France) will be even more sought after than was the case over the past couple of years. Not only will it be the only UK half-term week, but it will also be a week when two-thirds of France, including the Paris area, are on holiday too – along with the Belgians, Danish and Dutch.”

Marion Telsnig, spokesman for Crystal Ski Holidays agreed: “Yes we’re also advising to book early and as skiers are savy, we’ve already seen an increase in bookings during peak dates.”

Ski Total and Esprit Skiare both reporting a surge in demand, too.

Spokesman Moira Clark said: “Demand is good for next season, particularly for Ski Total with groups who want to secure their preferred chalet for their group at the best possible early bird prices regardless of date.

“Esprit always has high demand for the peak season weeks in the early booking season. We also have some great savers deals for early bookers.”
