Best Places to Ski in January

January is generally one of the quietest months in ski resorts, so there won't be as many other people on the slopes. This means you can do as many runs in a day as you wish and you won't have to wait long for a lift either. And if you're looking for advanced terrain, there should be fresh powder to carve some first tracks in.

Colin - Hotel Steiner - April 2022

Our Ingams holiday was fantastic at the Hotel Steiner in Obertauern. Hotel was amazing and Katherine our rep was more than helpful and nothing was too much trouble, even on her day off, when we needed help and information, after I ended up with a dislocated fracture. I would definitely recommend the hotel and will definitely be using Inghams again.

Paul - Chalet Arktic - March 2022

Helpful support, going beyond by looking for resort info and suggesting property to suit. Used Inghams many times and will continue to do so.

Claire D - Hotel Solaria - April 2022

Amazing holiday in Ischgl from start to finish. The hotel was beautiful and the food, hospitality and location perfect. All the staff at the hotel went above and beyond. All seamless from start to finish from transport to slopes. Would definitely repeat the whole holiday.
