Ski tour operators are offering a variety of special White Week ski holiday deals this week, joining in the spate of Black Friday deals.
Some of the tour operators are a little tongue-in-cheek with their initiatives, playing on the white-of-snow in many cases rather than anything ‘black’ with ‘Whiteout Weeks’ and the like. We also have ‘Wipeout Weekend’ and ‘White Wednesday’
Mountain Heaven, who take credit for inventing ‘White Friday’ have now have re-invented it to be a White Wednesday!
“The reason being is that there are too many people doing Black/White Friday now and too many people keeping White/Black Friday going on and on for days,” said director Nick Williams.
Ski Famille are also going with ‘White Wednesday’ although in their case they’re stretching Wednesday right through to Saturday,
“This year, instead of spending your day trawling websites or being pushed and shoved on the high street, why not put your feet up, grab a cuppa or glass of wine and give us a call? We will create a family experience in the mountains that will be remembered long after a 50% saving on a massive telly!” commented Ski Famille MD Chris Thompson.
The deals themselves vary too from extra discounts on low-season or late booking dates so discounts across the range.
Here are the ones we’ve had submitted to InTheSnow in A-Z Order:
