Tag Archives: credit crunch

The BBC have just published a piece on how the credit crunch is impacting the ski industry, with the focus on France.  Highlights of the report are as follows:

– bookings are down in traditionally busy times
– most people are bagging lastminute holiday deals
– exchange rates are having an impact on in-resort spending

Clearly the ski industry is in for a tough time for the next couple of seasons, but conversely it will mean that holiday makers who can still afford their annual snow fix will have a wider range of rental properties to choose from, and quieter slopes.  Lucky them.

In more positive news, the snow in Val d’Isere looks fantastic!
