Luxury Easter Skiing Holidays in France

Easter is a hugely popular time of the year to hit the slopes. We all know spring skiing = blue skies, warmer weather, long lunches and happy people! The UK celebrates Easter on the Sunday after the first full moon that occurs after the first day of spring. Easter dates can therefore vary massively from year to year, Easter can fall as early 22 March to as late into spring as 25 April.

Easter bank holidays include Good Friday and Easter Monday so invariably you only need to take 4 days holiday from work to enjoy a week in the mountains.

We will of course endeavour to serve traditional Easter fare so you can enjoy a hot cross bun or two, Easter biscuits and chocolate eggs. Our nannies will undoubtedly organise an Easter egg hunt in the snow for our younger guests.

One of our favourite things about Easter skiing has to be al fresco dining at lunch time. There really is no greater pleasure after a morning skiing than stopping for lunch, stripping down to your t-shirt, slapping on the sun cream and admiring the breath-taking mountain views.

Where to ski at Easter

Some people may worry about the snow conditions when considering an Easter ski holiday, but in recent years the April snowfall has been surprisingly plentiful. Indeed, many French resorts have closed in May with an abundance of snow on the pistes. We shouldn’t forget either, that all of our French resorts have made significant investments in snow making over the years, and they are experts at preserving snow fallen over the season to ensure skiing can be enjoyed over Easter. Of course, it’s still a good idea to look for a high altitude resort, and one with above-average snowfall, such as Arc 1950 or Val d’Isere.

Family Ski Holidays at Easter

Easter holidays are a fantastic time to spend long, sunny days on the slopes with your family. The weather at this time of the year is usually much milder which many parents and children prefer over Christmas ski holidays or February half term skiing. The days are also longer, with the lifts staying open later so you really can make the most of each day.

The sunnier weather makes for a much more relaxing experience, especially for young children, and lessons seem so much more fun when children are warm.
