The best ski resorts for Early Season Skiing  

On Esquiades.com we believe that the most snow-sure ski resorts in Europe to ski at the beginning of December 2023 are located in the Alps. Yes, we're talking about the big 3: The French Alps, The Swiss Alps and the Austrian Alps. 

1. Grindelwald-Wengen

The Grindelwald-Wengen ski area is also usually open from the end of November so you can also expect great snow conditions if you’re looking to book a ski holiday in early December. Expect to see amazing mountain scenery and find plenty of easy runs for children and beginners. It’s the best ski resort in Switzerland for a family ski holiday. 

2. Tignes 

Tignes Ski Resort is usually open from the end of November (La Grande-Motte Glacier is open from October!). This ski area is one of the most snow-sure ski resorts to visit in December and is also known for having the longest ski season in Europe!  

If you’re looking for a short ski holiday in Tignes before peak season, we have some really cheap ski deals that include a self-catered apartment right on the slopes. 

3. Arosa - Lenzerheide 

This is another excellent ski resort in Switzerland if you’re travelling with keen beginners and intermediate skiers and snowboarders as the majority of slopes are blue. On Esquiades.com you’ll find plenty of hotels and apartments located really close to Arosa so you can maximise your time on the slopes. 

4. Les 2 Alpes 

Les Deux Alpes has the largest glacier in Europe and the highest runs in France so, you can book your ski holiday knowing that you’ll definitely be able to ski in early December. Our Les 2 Alpes ski deals for this time of the year all include a self-catered apartment located a short walk from the ski lifts and chairlifts in Les Deux Alpes. 

5. Innsbruck  

Skiing in Austria in early December is definitely the way forward as its ski resorts are very popular during peak dates of the ski season. On Esquiades.com you’ll find fantastic ski holidays to visit the ski resorts surrounding Innsbruck, known as Olympia Skiworld Innsbruck. On Esquiades.com your ski pass will give you access to all of these ski areas as well as loads of après-ski activities. 

6. Val Thorens 

Val Thorens ski resort is a great option any time of the year as it’s known for having an excellent record with snowfall from the beginning of the season right through to May (it’s the highest ski resort in Europe). This ski area is perfectly suitable for beginner and intermediate skiers and snowboarders. And great après-ski is a guarantee here! Book your Val Thorens ski holiday at the best price on Esquiades.com

7. Davos Klosters

It’s one of the largest ski resorts in Switzerland and suitable for different types of skiers and snowboarders: there are 6 different ski areas, each of them designed for a different level. On Esquiades.com you’ll find a selection of hotels scattered in the different areas so you can book the option that best suits you! 

8. Val d'Isère

It’s on the top ten list of the world’s best ski resorts! It also connects with the Tignes ski area so if you’re looking to maximise your time on the slopes, you can also buy a combined ski pass and ski in both resorts. Over 50% of the slopes are blue, so it’s an excellent ski destination in the French Alps if you’re travelling with beginner/intermediate skiers and snowboarders. 

What's the best way to get to the Alps for a skiing holiday? 

The Skiing Holidays in the Alps on Esquiades.com include everything you need from the moment you step foot on the resort, that is: hotel / apartment / chalet + ski pass + ski extras.

What you need to check for yourself is how to get to the Alps. If you have to catch a flight, find the closest airports to the ski resorts you are visiting in the Alps and from there, rent a car from the airport. Another excellent option if booking ski trains or making your own way by car and enjoying the beautiful scenery to your ski destination
