@albob, Well stanton's prediction in July 2016 for the coming 2016/17 ski season exchange rates seems as accurate as the rest of his posts.... Laughing

@Frank Spencer, Probably, but it would be the end of the EU as well. If the renowned tactical voting by the French goes badly, she might be in with a chance. Now if Nigel Farage was to be seen going in to her office, hang on to your hats!

If the slopes look blue, probably icy. You's be better of sticking to the white slopes.

I think it will be Macron, by 70 to 30 ish. Pound shot up overnight but eased back this morning when calm returned to the markets.

Macron is a Europhile but highly educated, there will be a few threats, but he will be pragmatic. Had Melenchon and Le Pen been the frontrunners, the Euro's inevitable demise would have been brought forward a number of years. Meanwhile they will continue to kick the Greek Issue into the long grass and millions of young southern Europeans will remain destitute and in despair. Given around 40% of French voters chose anti EU candidates the calls for a French referendum my get louder. They will, of course, be ignored by the Parisian Media-political elite who refuse to give the people the choice as they would rather be sat on the colossal gravy train to an unreformed Brussels.

And there was a lovely feature on Radio 4 early Sunday morning on a couple who've been together for 30 years but got together when he was 17 and she was 20 years older.

@Jonpim, "42 year old teacher seduces 17 year old pupil". In my book that's weird, reverse the genders and you've got a full on national hate campaign on your hands.

His best friend from school's mother? Is their a source for this or just fun speculation? I wouldn't have said that it was ideal (positions of power and responsibilty etc) but the fact that they have been together since then and are still happily married makes a nice change from the string of affairs and scandals that normally emanate from the French president's office......

@galpinos, as said on Radio 5 this morning, sounded like it's well documented. His parents sent him away to another school to discourage the relationship, without apparent success. Each to their own, they didn't break any laws, it's just a bit, you know, weird.

So, to return to the thread title, this is how the £1 has looked over the last 12 months:

Euros CHF

1.15 1.24 Today
1.28 1.42 A year ago
1.10 1.20 Worst in last 12 months
1.32 1.46 Best in last 12 months

I actually don't think that anyone can really be sure whether next season will be more expensive. Plus, there seem to be two different but related strands here: 1. Will Pre-booked holidays be fixed at a worse rate ? and 2. What will rates be next winter?

If you're dependent on rate assumptions being made now or soon, then I would hazard that yes, they will be more expensive. So TOs and agencies negotiating with hotels and chalets now probably have to factor in an assumption that the above numbers don't look encouraging and assume something like a 10%-15% increase. After that, it's the usual balancing act of bigger margins vs putting people of altogether. And as for[2] as I said, no one can really predict, or if they can, they'll be out there currency trading and not reading skiing forums .....

The euro/pound exchange rate to me is becoming less relevant, if the EU decided to 'punish' the UK then I'll not be spending my money there. More relevant to me maybe the dollar, time will tell.

So to include the US$

Euros - CHF - US$

1.15 - 1.24 - 1.28 Today
1.28 - 1.42 - 1.45 A year ago
1.10 - 1.20 - 1.20 Worst in last 12 months
1.32 - 1.46 - 1.47 Best in last 12 months

So a similar trend to the euro and Swiss Franc: Not currently the worst rate since before the Brexit vote, but no indication that the rates will get back to the same levels as of a year ago. If you had to decide now, then you'd probably take a guess that a 15% price hike would be reasonable.

I consciously only added today's dollar rates and kept the other numbers the same just for consistency. I'm not a rate feed service. Are you going to update these figures yourself every day? Thought not.
