The Easter holidays are a fantastic time for a family ski holiday. The days are longer (meaning later lift closing times) and the weather is warm. By this point in the season you can usually expect a good snow base. The only challenge can be pulling yourself away from a sun kissed terrace to put in some more slope time.
If you are looking for fantastic snow and glorious sunshine then spring skiing is for you.
Even the mountains warm up in the spring, so forget about wrapping up in multiple layers and dusk at 4pm and look forward to long sunny days on the slopes. Trade in your thermals for a t- shirt and enjoy the additional skiing time – just don’t forget the sun lotion!
Many resorts celebrate the return of the warmer weather by holding a variety of outdoor events and activities on the slopes. La Plagne hosts its annual Subli’Cimes festival throughout the first two weeks of April bringing the slopes alive with a diverse range of entertainment suitable for all age groups.
The peak weeks have been and gone, and spring sees some of the best value family skiing holidays of the year. Packages are cheaper, and resorts tend to offer some great deals as the end of the season draws near.
Spring skiing also means sales in the shops, providing the perfect opportunity to try out those skis you’ve had your eye on, or buy some new salopettes to replace the ones you wore out 2 years ago!
The long spring days also make self-driving to the Alps a great cost effective travel option, especially for those travelling to Les Gets. With plenty of interesting places to stop off at en-route, it is an interesting choice for families with slightly older children.
All Ski Famille holidays come with the option to include a Eurotunnel flexiplus pass meaning you can travel whenever you like. How about extending your ski holiday with a city break, or stop-off in Calais on your way home to stock up on some French wines!
Easter Holiday skiing also means great deals on lift passes for the whole family.
