Ski High

01 January 0001

High altitude skiing at it's finest!

When planning a trip to the mountains, it's important to get the right snow conditions! These days, we're seeing less of a set, defined season and much more snow variability. Some seasons we have great snow early in the year with awesome Christmas conditions, but yet some seasons the snow arrives later on and March and the months of March and April experience the best skiing conditions. To avoid eagerly booking your ski holiday, getting all excited and then being disappointed with the snow conditions when you arrive, we have one piece of high!

Ski Weekends travel to many resorts located at a high altitude including the classic Val Thorens, Tignes and Val d'lsere. The fantastic thing about high resorts is that you are almost guaranteed good snow, all year round whether it be the start or the end of the season. However, there are many less well-known resorts that are equally as noble of the ski high label. Less well known resorts such as Sierra Nevada (max height 3305m), Zermatt (max height 3899m) and Les Menuires (max height 3020m).

Skiing high doesn't mean you have to stay high. Getting a resort with great lift access to high altitudes is a great option for hitting the slopes or staying in one of the large ski areas (e.g. the Three Valleys) and travelling to the high altitudes is also a fun option. The perfect example of this is staying in Les Menuires - not a traditionally high ski resort but one with great access to the Val Thorens ski area with the Three Valleys, full area pass.
