Start Planning Your Ski Vacation
July 16, 2019 by Rachelle
Don’t wait until the cooler months to book your ski vacation. We find that our most coveted properties with the best locations and amenities start to book up to a year in advance. Booking no later than the end of August ensures you have your pick of the best properties before they’re gone. Here’s why you should start planning your ski vacation now, including a list of some of our most highly sought after properties in Park City, Whistler, and Tahoe.
Why Book Early?
Once again, you have your pick of the best properties! As a rental company, early reservations are invaluable to us. Our aim is a fully booked calendar before we even begin the season. As inventory is booked up and we inch closer to the peak season, prices tend to rise as the demand increases, not only on rentals, but on lift tickets, ski rentals, ski lessons, and flights. Contact us early for customized pricing for your group and save!
According to Liftopia, booking your lift ticket in the summer months can result in huge savings; up to 50% off! Lift prices increase steadily as the season gets closer. The best deals to be had for your winter vacation are in the SUMMER! Once you book your lodging, your complimentary concierge can help you lock down all your lift tickets and ski rentals early to ensure you get the best pricing and the best gear.
Ski-in/Ski-out, Downtown, and Heli-ski Properties are the First to Go:
With over eight ski seasons under our belt, we can tell you that some of the first properties to book are those with ski-in/ski-out access, incredible downtown locations, unique amenities, and high bed counts. Booking in the heat of summer means that you can get everything on your ski vacation bucket list: Ski prep room, modern furnishings, direct ski or gondola access, and enough rooms (and ensuite baths) to accommodate your entire group.
Don’t Forget about Ski Lessons and Restaurant Reservations:
We asked the Opulent Vacations Guest Services team what they think the advantages to booking early for ski getaways are. The consensus was ski lessons and restaurant reservations. Ski lessons from the best instructors book out way in advance. If you have kids or first-time skiers/snowboarders in your party, you will want lessons. Proper instruction means that everyone in the group can safely enjoy their time out on the slopes. Our team can help you select and book the best instructors in the area.
The best restaurants book out early. Don’t quite know where you want to dine yet? Ask our team. They know the best up-and-coming restaurants and are happy to place reservations on your behalf.
