The ski conditions across Europe are currently excellent and will not disappoint anyone heading on ski weeks during the half-term holidays, it has been claimed.

According to the advice site Planet Ski, temperatures are currently low enough to maintain a crisp snow base, though the skies are still clear, creating the perfect combination for travellers.

The source noted that it could be one of the best half-term breaks for years for people heading to a French resort from the UK, as the holidays are a different week to those of French children, ensuring it will be less busy.

In addition, the very low temperatures are not melting any of the snow, ensuring a thick covering that people simply cannot wait to tackle, once their skis are strapped on.

Skiing expert James Box told the website that things could hardly be better: "I've just returned from the Alps where I spent three days and the conditions are absolutely perfect. Next week in The Alps will be awesome."

He added that the half-term is looking like being a bumper one, with sales spurred on by all the good snow that has fallen since December."

Clare Burnett, a spokeswoman from the Chamonix tourist office, said that it is very cold in Chamonix but this makes it all the better for ski holidays.

"Still freezing cold in Chamonix, but the sun is shining and the snow is excellent and it's actually no colder on the slopes than in town," she added.

Julian Griffiths, director of the ski school European Snowsport, said the popularity of ski weeks this half-term is evident by the sheer number of people looking to take lessons.

"We are fully booked out with all our instructors working and it should be one of the busiest half-term weeks in years, we expect the slopes to be busy," he added.
