There simply isn’t a more traditional way to spend this holiday season than being surrounded by a beautiful blanket of snow. While beach holidays over the Christmas break are exotic, there’s nothing like curling up next to a roaring fire and watching the snow fall outside.

For those living in Asia, the Japanese resort of Niseko is just a quick flight away. With some of the freshest powder in the world, traditional onsens to soak your sore muscles, and incredible dining options, Niseko is fast becoming a top ski destination. Why not tag on a few days in Tokyo on your way there for some shopping, dining, and exploring this sprawling metropolis.

Europe of course is a skiier’s mecca with some of the most well-loved resorts in the world. Courchevel, Chamonix and Val d’Isère in France, as well as Verbier and Zermatt in Switzerland. The options for a luxury ski holiday are endless, and we have a range of stunning chalets in our handpicked portfolio.

And lastly, the Canadian ski haven of Whistler is truly breathtaking with superb options for experienced skiiers. If you’re in the area, why not head north for the ultimate ski experience – a heliski tour through Northern British Columbia.

All Lightfoot holidays are 100% tailor-made and suited to each individual customer. Call us now to speak to your personal Travel Designer, and book your bespoke Christmas beach holiday.
