Much of the accommodation and holidays have already been snapped up. Christmas is sold out for some operators while the February half-term co-incides with many of the other European nations including France. Space is limited.

Christmas has gone very well this year.

The family specialist, Esprit Ski, has already sold out and this comes with increased capacity from last year.

"With the good early season snowfalls of the past few winters then people's confidence has returned about skiing over Xmas," said Moira Clarke the head of marketing for Esprit Ski. 

Elsewhere there is still some availability but even the low-level resorts like Les Gets in France have limited availability in December.

If you want to have a family holiday at Christmas in one of the main resorts then you will need to be quick.

Half-term is also doing well.

The main week for the winter half-term in the UK is February 15th - 22nd.

It is the same for large parts of France (including Paris), Germany, the Netherlands and Denmark.

The slopes will be busy and accommodation could be hard to come by as much has been booked already.

Esprit Ski says it has pocketes of availability with some space in Les Arcs, Alpe d'Huez and St Anton.

Alternatively you may want to consider going pre-Christmas or Easter when prices will be lower and the slopes less crowded. However Christmas is looking busier than in past seasons.

See here for the full range of offers from Esprit Ski.

It is the same with all the other main operators and specialist family companies we have spoken to here at PlanetSKI;  "Book early to avoid disappointment."

It is full of practical advice written by a mother of three children who have all been skiing since they were 4-years old.

If you are a single parent it offers special prices on selected holidays.
