I have already air tickets to February 2016, and I am planning on spending 7 days in Madonna di Campiglio and 7 days in Lech. This is my first ever ski trip to Europe.
I started looking for hotels in Madonna di Campiglio, because it's a larger city and I want to ensure I get a hotel close to the lifts. I have found all hotels fall in one of the following categories:
1- Hotel shows as "sold out" for my dates.
2- Hotel has vacancy for my days except the February 13th.
3- Hotel has vacancy but it's very expensive ($450 per day or so).
Is this happening because there is an event there on the 13th? (I could not find any) -- or maybe because it's too early to book hotels? -- or, worse, because it's too late?
Any suggestions on whether I should wait a few months and try again or I should just book the most reasonable hotel I find right now?
