Secrets for a stress-free ski holiday

Skiing packing

Let’s face it, ski holidays are not known for being the most relaxing holidays.

The journey is generally more stressful too – long, uncomfortable transfers to get up the mountains to your ski resort, unpredictable weather conditions and endless traffic jams are what are often in store. For some expert advice we teamed up with Snowplaza who kindly put together some helpful tips to make your ski holidays as stress-free as possible.
