The Best Ski Resorts to Visit in Spring

The Best Ski Resorts to Visit in Spring

The gradual transition from winter to spring shouldn’t signal that it's time to hang up your skis for the season. There’s still plenty of opportunity to head out to the mountains, whether you’re embarking on your first trip of the season or trying to squeeze in one more week of skiing before the resorts. Spring is a great time to take to the slopes, with more sun and longer daylight hours serving to create ideal skiing conditions. 

When planning a spring skiing trip, some resorts may be a better choice of location than others in terms of snow quality, quantity, and reliability. We’ve compiled a helpful list of the best ski resorts across the Alps for spring skiing.

Ischgl, Austria

Some say that spring is the best time to go skiing in Ischgl. Located in the Silvretta Ski Arena, over 90 per cent of Ischgl’s slopes are situated at 2,000m above sea level, making Ischgl an excellent choice for those looking for reliable snow coverage in the spring months. 

Ischgl fully embraces the sun in spring, dubbing the month of April “Spring Blanc”. The resort holds riveting open-air concerts and dining events, allowing guests the chance to sample the best that Austria’s cuisine has to offer.

Verbier, Switzerland

With a reputation for great late-season snow, Verbier is a strong choice of location for spring skiing. Situated in the heart of the Swiss Alps, Verbier is celebrated for its vast ski terrain, stunning scenery, and vibrant nightlife. The resort's high-altitude slopes ensure optimal snow conditions well into the spring months, letting you make the most of the ski season right until the very end.

Val Thorens, France

Standing as Europe’s highest ski resort at an altitude of 2,300 metres, it's unsurprising that Val Thorens makes a great choice for spring skiing. Its high altitude gives way to excellent snow conditions well into the spring months, making it a reliable choice for those looking for some late-season on-slope action. As part of the Three Valleys ski area, Val Thorens is a gateway to over 600 kilometres of interconnected pistes, giving skiers and snowboarders plenty of runs to enjoy.

With the town renowned for its superb apres ski scene, the atmosphere in St. Anton in the springtime is next to none. Soak up the sun on the terrace of your favourite bar – we recommend the Hospiz Alm.
