Log in to snowHeads to make it MUCH better! Registration's totally free, of course, and makes snowHeads easier to use and to understand, gives better searching, filtering etc. as well as access to 'members only' forums, discounts and deals that U don't even know exist as a 'guest' user. (btw. 50,000+ snowHeads already know all this, making snowHeads the biggest, most active community of snow-heads in the UK, so you'll be in good company)..... When you register, you get our free weekly(-ish) snow report by email. It's rather good and not made up by tourist offices (or people that love the tourist office and want to marry it either)... We don't share your email address with anyone and we never send out any of those cheesy 'message from our partners' emails either. Anyway, snowHeads really is MUCH better when you're logged in - not least because you get to post your own messages complaining about things that annoy you like perhaps this banner which, incidentally, disappears when you log in :-)

You can ask the question, but attendance officer sounds like a term time position (contract) my contract is one of the few that are not term time only (or term time only + x weeks).

We’ve already drafted a notice letter to be submitted the August after my youngest leaves school Laughing

For those interested in School Holidays in 2021-2022, I found this graphical representation from the website www.wintersport.nl. Some of it is in Dutch, but it's fairly self-explanatory ("OO" is AT and "TSJ" is CZ). It looks like Fasching will be brutal in the first week March, 2022.

@monkbeer, nice find.

The full “busyness” analysis is here: https://www.wintersport.nl/weblog/11/02/2021/drukke-vakantieweken-in-het-wintersportseizoen-2021-2022 as mentioned it is all in Dutch.

For Brits looking at the PDS (me!) 1-8 Jan looks good though the orange hordes will be out in force (including Mrs DJL)

Could you also post in the EU school holidays 2021-22 thread ?

Xmas is weird in 2021 as Xmas day is a Saturday which is usually a changeover day ? ... we are (hopefully) in Selva with Crystal but its Mon 20th to Mon 27th...

So not really sure if it will be busy or not...

We'd intended to carry over a March week booked for 2021 to 2022. We were booked for 20th, but we opted to delay by an extra week to 26th March.

The agent has asked for a considerable increase in price for the booking. Basically ~50% However, looking at the chart above the week of 26th March doesn't look to be a busy one. Is this:

a) A peak week that we've stumbled into?
b) Some sort of corona-bonus?
c) The agent taking the p***?

I thought we'd be laughing as the kids are finally out of school!

@LittleRob,
My children are past school age but that week is the start of the Easter holidays in 2022 for the schools they used to to attend.
It’s also the start of uni holidays but I do think the agent is probably taking the p$$s slightly at an increase of 50%

My country(Canada) is coming off covid lockdown and I'm looking to get back to normal this fall. We usually take a family ski trip every fall and missed last year, now we're not sure which countries we can travel to. I don't want to make an online booking for somewhere that might still be restricted etc.... confusing times.

Is there somewhere to find info on which countries would let a Canadian family come enjoy the lodges and slopes?

@Gillesski, thanks for the tip. This thread is about 20/21, but I assume you're talking about Feb 2022. Thread for 21/22 season is https://snowheads.com/ski-forum/viewtopic.php?p=4739608 (edit: thanks @altis)

Not for VT. It's only zone C ("only") and no UK holidays either.

Looking at the calendar the "golden week" seems to be 08-15 January. As a newbie to this thing it seems logical to go then? Am I right?

Schools in / most people back to work / cheapest rentals?

Is it too early in the season to consider the first week on January normally in Europe?

In France, the first week of Feb is normally my favourite. All the lads groups think that February = half term, so stay away, but actually the French half terms didn’t start until the second, and the U.K. ones are normally second or third.

Some French ski resorts offer discounted ski passes this week as it can be so empty.

Keep this to yourself though! wink

Having got myself booked to Zauchensee in Feb22 (first time skiing for the kids), I have started to try and have a look at February half term 2023.

At first glance, I have a horrible feeling our school half term will clash with Fasching, Carnival and Paris holidays….

Will wait for the official verdict to come out. Hope I’m wrong….

You can check the week of Fasching / Carnival / Shrove Tuesday way into the future here:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shrove_Tuesday#Dates

P'raps we should call it Powder Day:

But maybe that would be confusing.
