Hands up if you’ve recently had, or are about to have one of those birthdays? You know. The ones that end in a zero. Now I don’t have anything against zeros per se. But if you’re anything like me, they’re bound to get you thinking: What have I done with my life? Where did all the years go? What happened to that skinny young person I used to be? And on a positive its time to celebrate you… For me it is a birthday month! So, let’s talk about birthday trips.
I can’t help you answer any of those questions but I can help you to make your next milestone birthday (or any other important celebration), something that not only you, but your family and friends will remember for a long time.
Ski holidays with family and friends, celebrating a milestone of any kind, have gained in popularity recently. Whether the destination is within Australia or abroad, they have delivered lasting happy memories for everyone. Memories of a lifetime are formed on snow holidays… they are just magical.
Snowscene has organised trips for 40th and 50th birthdays right through to 70th and even 80th celebrations. On these trips, many families may travel together. Anyone who wants to can go skiing or snowboarding but everyone gets to celebrate the special birthday in a unique part of the world.
Currently we have a group who are travelling to Niseko for a 40th birthday. The grandparents are travelling with the family and they are looking forward to spending time with their grandchildren whilst the parents are on the slopes. In some cases, the grandparents are out skiing too.
The key to the success of these trips, as it is for so many things in life, is timing. Adequate time is essential to allow for booking and planning so that full advantage can be taken of the best Early Bird packages and any specials that Snowscene has to offer. If you’ve ever tried to organise any kind of family event, involving even small numbers of people, you will know how hard it is to find times and venues that suit everyone. Planning a ski trip of this kind requires attention to many details – lots of things can be overlooked. Snowscene also have access to group airfares with preferred partners like Qantas, Air New Zealand and Virgin – who gets to travel business… come on now grandparents you deserve it.
It does sound a bit daunting doesn’t it? Where do you find the time and how do you access the information you’re going to need to make all these decisions? That’s where Snowscene comes in. We are there to help you find accommodation to cater for groups of all sizes and budgets and to organise your flights and ski snowboard package. And we’ve partnered with companies who can help organise birthday, anniversary, welcome or cocktail parties and a huge range of activities in any holiday location. The best part is that all of these can be included in the package price. Everything taken care of – food, drinks, kids club, ski lessons and lift passes to name a few.
As an example, a destination such as Aspen Snowmass would be ideal for a 50th birthday party. With its high-end restaurants through to a more casual environment for après ski, what better way to enjoy yourself after a day on the slopes? With plenty of non-skiing activities like dog-sledding, cabin rides to private huts, ghost tours with Aspen historical society or snowmobiling, every member of the group is guaranteed a great time. And that’s just one such place. There are so many to choose from.
So, give some thought to the next milestone celebration coming up. You might want to surprise your partner with a ski snowboard trip, or perhaps you’d like to share your special celebration with skiing snowboarding friends or with friends who have never seen the snow. With Snowscene’s help, you can all experience the white magic of a snow holiday.
Ideally, the best time to start planning such a big trip is 12 months ahead but the good news is that it’s not too late for the 2021 season. We have early bird packages currently still on offer for the North American ski season for Whistler, Aspen, and Vale and also in Japan.
If you want to be super-organised, now is the perfect the time to start planning your 2021 ski season. By pre-registering your interest with Snowscene for Early Bird Deals and the exclusive wait list, you will get your preferred resort and travel with your preferred airline.
