Winter’s settling in, so what better way to feel festive than grabbing a box of choccies and watching a Christmas film? We’ve rounded up our favourite ski-themed ones to keep us going until we can hit the slopes.
Let It Snow (2013)
A classic TV movie, Let It Snow is packed with cheesy lines and happy endings.

But with her Christmas Eve deadline fast approaching, will love get in the way of her decision?
After a blizzard hits a ski resort in Utah, four strangers are thrown together at the mysterious Rosemont, a lodge that’s been closed for almost 20 years. With life-changing consequences, their stay reveals a blossoming romance, hidden pasts and family struggles. Gripping you from the start, Rosemont is definitely one for your Christmas movie night.
Welcome to Christmas (2018)
Tasked with finding a location for a new ski resort, developer Madison winds up stranded in the small town of Christmas, Colorado. Little does she know, the people there are also on a mission – to make Madison fall in love with Christmas’ community spirit and festive traditions, and convince her it’s the best place for the new resort.
This one isn’t strictly a Christmas film, but the presence of snow, skiing and Will Ferrell (sadly not in his Elf costume) is enough for us. Ferrell stars as dad Pete, who takes his family skiing in Ischgl. But the trip turns sour when a their slopeside lunch is interrupted by an avalanche – and instead of protecting his wife and sons, Pete grabs his phone and runs. Can he redeem himself and save his marriage, or are their days of family ski holidays at an end?
Christmas with a View (2018)

Sun Valley Serenade (1941)

For Your Eyes Only (1981)
While not bursting with Santa and sleigh bells, you can’t beat a classic bit of Bond at Christmas. In this 007 outing, Roger Moore is on a mission to find a missing British spy ship and stop it falling into enemy hands. Packed with chases, suspense and one-liners – not to mention shots of the snowy Italian Alps – it’s got everything you need for a fun night in.
