It's snowing!
Squeeze in a week’s pre-Christmas family skiing here at the start of the season in November, when US and Canadian resorts officially open, and take advantage of fresh snow and great prices. Contact Crystal, tel: 0870 166 4971; www.crystalholidays.co.uk

Get your skates on
The courtyard of the Hotel Plaza Athénée in Paris will be transformed into an ice rink in December. Check out www.plaza-athenee-paris.com

Search for Santa
Take a seasonal day trip to Finnish Lapland in December to drive a reindeer sleigh and skim across the frozen tundra by snowmobile in search of Santa. Departures from regional airports with Canterbury Travel, tel: 01923 823470; www.laplandexperience.com

Flying High
Balloon week takes place at the sleepy Swiss mountain village of Château d’Oex during January, when hundreds of hot-air balloons gather in a riot of shapes and colours, dazzling against the blue sky and white snow. Besides this, Château d’Oex is a great place for children to learn to ski. Visit www.chateau-doex.ch/english

Carnival capers
In 2009, celebrate carnival in snowy Quebec City from January 30 to February 15, with lavish parades, fabulous costumes, music, dancing, special carnival food and a real ice palace. Visit www.carnaval.qc.ca

Spend the night in a giant igloo!
The Ice Hotel in Sweden is built every December, 200 kilometres inside the Arctic Circle and begins to melt by April! With special family rooms; Arctic clothing provided. See www.icehotels.co.uk

Cool day out
Check out the Xbox Big Day Out snowboard and music festival in Val d’Isère from February to March. You might be a little long in the tooth for the evening festivities, but it’s family fun and great boarding action on the slopes during the day. Visit www.xboxbigdayout.com
