Easter Ski Holidays
Many skiers say this is the best time to go on a ski holiday – recent seasons have seen excellent snow and some fantastic sunshine!
Tignes is great at Easter with average highs of 10°C and 5 hours of sunshine per day and late season powder isn't out of the question either with Arc 1950 in Les Arcs and Val Thorens all enjoying an average daily snowfall of at least 5cm during the first week of April.
Just make sure you choose a high altitude resort that guarantees snow – call us for our top tips on where to go, or take a look at our recommendations below for the best Easter ski holidays.
Our top 3 Easter ski holiday destinations
Best for: High altitude skiing
The highest ski resort in Europe at 2,300m, Val Thorens is ideal for snow-sure late-season skiing, with the slopes normally staying open until early May. The resort's excellent beginner slopes and multitude of off slope activities also make it a perfect destination for families.
Best for: Family fun
One of La Plagne's altitude villages, Belle Plagne is a great base from which to enjoy Subli'cimes, La Plagne's annual end of season series of themed parties on it's 6 mountain peaks. With everything from peaceful relaxation to adrenaline-fuelled activities, there's something for all the family and best of all, it's free of charge.
Best for: Avoiding the crowds
For the best chance of shorter lift queues, it's better to stay away from resorts that are more popular with the UK market. With a ski area roughly the size of the Espace Killy, but relatively unknown in the UK, the Sybelles ski area, comprising the resorts of La Toussuire, Le Corbier, St Jean d'Arves and St Sorlin d'Arves, is worth trying.
