April Ski Holidays
Ski Breaks In APRIL
Book a ski holiday in April with SkiWeekends. Many think the ski season is all over in April, but that is far from the truth. Most ski resorts shut around 21st April with plenty of snow on the slopes. Other high altitude resorts such as Val Thorens, Tignes and Chamonix keep going until mid May, opening for the locals at weekends.
We love April ski holidays for those long sunny days and the wonderful sense of well-being, eating a long lunch and having a drink in the sunshine. The combination of fresh mountain air in your lungs, stunning scenery and the healing warmth of the sun are hard to beat.
Of course in April the slopes are empty, and the freshly groomed corduroy pistes wait for you after each sunrise. For the rest of the morning you can expect fantastic ski conditions on all middle and upper slopes. Take a late lunch then when the snow is really soft, relax and enjoy it! In the afternoon, yes, the snow can get slushy, and it's hard on the legs...but there's a reason why slushy snow is called poor man's powder, it's great fun!
As many of you know, at SkiWeekends we're all about maximising your time on the slopes. The Easter Bank Holiday weekend means you can get a 4 day ski holiday on quiet slopes without using any annual leave.
Whether it's an extra ski trip to make up for the last few years or your first time back on the ski slopes, short ski break in April is a great way to keep the cost down!
The slopes and ski schools are quiet, no queues and the extra warmth just makes it more fun without wearing all those thermal layers. It's a brilliant time for adults and kids alike.
