Tignes in France
Tignes, a ski resort in France, boasts a fantastic ski area with slopes to suit all ski or snowboard abilities. There is 3ookm of pistes in total as Tignes is linked with the Espace Killy ski area which connects the famous ski resort of Val D'isere. One of the main benefits of Tignes is its high altitude and glacier skiing which give the ski resort snow sure skiing even over New Years. For visitors wanting to enjoy the festivities of New Year, there is an open air nightclub in Le Lac Village for the annual Fire Mix Party on New Years Eve.
Meribel in France
Mieribel is a great choice for skiing in France over New Year. Although the resort itself is situated at a lower altitude than other French ski resorts, the nightlife is excellent and is especially exciting over New Years. For keen skiers or snowboarders, you can easily access the Three Valleys ski area including the high altitude Val Thorens for more snow sure skiing. Meribel has something to offer skiers or snowboarders of all abilities. There are plenty of red runs for intermediates as well as more gentle blue and green runs for beginners.
St Anton in Austria
St Anton in Austria is arguably one of the best ski resorts for après ski and nightlife. This makes it an ideal choice for a ski holiday over New Years.
On the slopes, Mooserwirt and Krazy Kangarugh are packed with table-dancing skiers every day but the celebrations will become even more magnifed over the festive season. Off the slopes, St Anton has many bars including Kandahar, Funcky Chicken and Pub Piccadilly which will have infamous New Year's Eve parties.
The Austrian ski resort is the perfect holiday destination for experienced skiers or snowboarders with plenty of challenging runs. Intermediates and beginners are also well catered for, and with the high altitude skiing available, St Anton has it all.

Verbier in Switzerland
The traditional Swiss ski resort of Verbier is set in a sunny, panoramic setting which is an ideal setting for a romantic New Years get away. There are a wide range of bars and clubs in verbier that will suit a mix of different visitors as well as a host of lovely restaurants. Many places put on specific New Years meals or host live music and dancing. We recommend Le Rouge, Nevaï and Fer à Cheval.
Skiing conditions in Verbier are ideal for more experienced skiers or snowboarders who love powder skiing. With New Year ski holidays demanding high-altitude, snow sure ski resorts, we would not recommend Verbier for beginners over this period. The most skiable slopes are those higher up which are on more challenging terrain.
