Spring is just around the corner and there's still time to get to the slopes this season or perhaps return for your second dose of mountain air! The warmer, brighter days; quieter slopes and fewer crowds make for a blissful week in the mountains. Feeling the warmth of the sun on your skin whilst sipping a drink or two after a day of skiing is sure to be a welcome comfort after the long winter months. If you still need further convincing, it's this time of year that our team, the ski experts themselves, book their own holidays to take advantage of what they consider the best conditions available.
1. Weather – Traveling towards the end of the season means your chances of a sunny holiday are increased. Although we cannot guarantee a string of glorious bluebird days, the warmer ‘t-shirt’ weather is certainly appealing for outdoor lunches and après ski, making the most of the incredible alpine surroundings
2. Avoid the Crowds – At this time of year there are less people in resorts and as a result the slopes are much quieter than peak weeks such as February half term or New Year.
3. Favourable prices – As the ski seasons begins to wind down, you may be able to take advantage of lower or discounted rates on luxury ski chalets and alpine hotels. You could also save further if resort lift passes move into off-peak prices during your trip.
4. Après Ski and Entertainment – As the days are longer, many après ski bars and restaurants stay open much later for you to soak up the atmosphere on a sun deck surrounded by snowy mountains. Resorts are also more likely to host bigger events such as DJ or band performances and ski or snowboard competitions due to the better weather conditions.
As always, we are on hand to make finding the perfect luxury chalet or alpine hotel for your ski holiday as simple as possible. Simply contact us today to start planning.
