Move over Black Friday, it's White Week or White Wednesday for some of the UK ski tour operators. UPDATED




There are some sensational ski deals this week.

Whatever you may think of the UK embracing the US sales initiative that is Black Friday, and extending it into much of this week, the result is some very good deals for some of next winter's dates.

Skiworld is first out of the blocks..

"With all this recent snowfall in the Alps, Skiworld is so excited that we've decided to throw our biggest sale of the year," said Rebecca Pascual from Skiworld.

Skiworld's White Week launches Wednesday 22nd November and runs until the 29th November.

Savings are pretty spectacular with 50% off all remaining European chalets for departures on the 6th January and 13th January.

Deals are available for resorts across Europe, with a lead in price of only £349pp (price includes flights, transfers and chalet board).

White Week will offer savings of up to £644pp.

"Availability is limited, so book quickly to avoid disappointment; once a deal is gone, it's gone," added Rebecca Pascual.

"White Week offers fantastic value in catered chalets, particularly in light of the weak pound, which has made self-catering and self-packaged holidays a more expensive option this year.  So go on... take advantage of White Week and book some time in the mountains, to give yourself a real reason to be excited for all this snowfall."
