It may still be the summer but it’s scary how quickly Christmas can creep up on you and if you want this festive season to be an unforgettable one, you could consider one of the all inclusive ski holidays that are available to book online at the moment.

The mountains are a perfect choice for a family holiday during the Christmas season, adding some extra enchantment to an already magical time. The key is to choose a resort that suits your family to a T and making sure that even though you’re abroad, you spend Christmas wisely.

While you may not be able to take sacks full of presents with you, it’s a nice touch to take a couple for each family member so that come Christmas morning; everybody will have something to open. Leave the rest until you arrive back home, where you can have some belated festive celebrations once the suitcases are unpacked.

Ellmau can be found at one end of the Ski Welt circuit and with varied skiing to suit all capabilities; you can enjoy some serious fun on the slopes as well as celebrating Christmas in style.
