By booking early, you can choose the vacation period that suits you best (even the Christmas and holiday season) and ensure you get a room in your favorite hotel. Also, you will have more options for cheap flights and ski transfers.
More time to prepare
The advantage of early booking is that you have enough time to carefully plan your ski holiday – to read reviews on resorts and hotels and pick the right one, book a convenient transfer, decide what to pack, what equipment you might need.
