Easter Ski Holidays

Easter skiing means long, sunny days, warmer weather, bluebird skies and of course excellent goggle tans! You get to avoid the cold temperatures of January and February and the slopes are normally a bit quieter than other school holiday weeks so you can enjoy faster queues and more time skiing!
 
For families restricted to school holidays, Easter generally does offer cheaper prices than half term and you will usually be able to get a good deal on your flights and accommodation. Having said that, Easter does still remain a popular date so it is advisable to book early, especially if you are a larger group. It is not only the accommodation that gets snapped up early, childcare and ski school places are limited so make sure that you book early to avoid disappointment.
 
The Easter week in the Alps falls pretty close to the end of the ski season, around mid-April, and so skiers and snowboarders choosing this Easter for their spring escape to the Alps need to consider altitude. Higher resorts offer better snow conditions, with a deeper snow base and higher averare snowfall. 

If you’re considering Easter for your friends’ or family getaway this winter ski season, here’s a few resorts we recommend - where the snow stays fresher for longer, the slopes offer something for all levels, and the sun-soaked après ski makes Easter skiing a joy!
 
Val d’Isere

Val d’Isere is a high resort making it a good choice for late season skiing. The lively resort centre offers a great range of shops and restaurants as well as plenty of activities off slopes for all the family to enjoy. Val d’Isere links with Tignes forming the Espace Killy, with both resorts included on the same lift pass. The Espace Killy is one of the largest ski areas in the Alps and has an excellent range of slopes suitable for all standards.
 
La Plagne
 
La Plagne is Europe’s most visited resort, particularly with families. La Plagne has excellent wide and gentle slopes which are perfect for beginner skiers and those just finding their feet.  The resort links with Les Arcs forming the Paradiski offering a fantastic range of slopes to suit every skier.
 
La Plagne is a purpose built resort and was originally built so that French people had an affordable place to ski therefore it has a good range of accommodation options that cater well for those on a lower budget.
 
Les Arcs
 
Similarly to La Plagne, Les Arcs has an excellent range of slopes for all skiing abilities. The resort is high altitude and family friendly. Les Arcs has plenty of affordable accommodation so makes a good choice for families wanting a big ski area but hoping to keep a hold of the budget.
 
Val Thorens
 
Val Thorens sits at 2300m and  is the highest resort in the Alps so makes a perfect choice for late season skiing. The resort is part of the Three Valleys and links with the neighbouring Meribel and Courchevel so has good skiing for to suit all abilities. Val Thorens is purpose built so it isn’t the most attractive resort but its design does mean that all the accommodation is close to the slopes so you won’t have to walk too far in your skis!
