Quiet slopes, long days, t-shirt skiing conditions, not to mention a whole season’s worth of snow cover built up on the pistes over the course of the winter! Yup, spring skiing is great – however, not every accommodation is perfect for late season skiing.

Heading somewhere high altitude and snow sure is crucial – after all, who wants to have to take the lift back into resort because the snow cover is insufficient. However, don't fret - we’ve had fantastic snow this winter so this is unlikely, but make sure you check out the snow depths in each resort before you settle on a property.

Finally, picking a property with some great last minute savings will complete the perfect holiday choice. Luckily, we’ve done the leg work for you – here’s our top 10 properties for spring skiing.

 

Val Thorens

Val Thoren is un-questionably one of our favourite late season spots in the alps. With the resort built at a staggering and snow sure height of 2300m, with the highest skiing being at 3230m you won’t fail to find some great snow here, no matter how late in the season!

Courchevel

Courchevel 1850 is one of the most prestigious resorts in the world and makes a great place to visit at any time in the season, however its height and the access of the whole 3 Valleys area, makes it an ideal place to go and find some late season snow.

We have a staggering 50% off rooms at the Hotel New Solarium, arriving 5th of April for 7 nights, making it an outstanding opportunity to bag a great value stay in the fabulous Courchevel 1850.

 

Avoriaz

This fantastic, convenient, purpose built resort is the highest in the Portes du Soleil, guaranteeing snow well into May. The skiing ranges from 1800m at resort level, right up to 2466m, giving you plenty of high altitude terrain to make use of.

We have great value apartments available at Residence Saskia Falaise with stunning views down the valley to Morzine and we've even thrown in a 20% discount for the week of the 29th of March to sweeten the deal.

 

Val d'Isere 

Val d’Isere is a classic alpine resort, with an exceptionally long season stretching from late November all the way until early March. Linked with Tignes to form the Espace Killy ski area, one of the best in the world, we simply can’t leave Val d’Isere off our list of great resorts for late season skiing.

We have an amazing 24% off apartments at Residence La Daille for the 29th of March, perfectly situated for a quick ski down from La Folie Douce!!

 

Flaine

Flaine is a brilliant resort which links into the Grand Massif ski area, with an abundance of skiing to keep you entertained! Flaine had a great start to the season with loads of snow to make an excellent base and at just over 1hr transfer time from Geneva, Flaine makes a perfect location for a short break!

Save 30% off your stay at Les Terrasses de Veret on 5th of April, lovely ski in/ski out apartments, close to the centre of Flaine.

 

Les Menuires

Tucked just below Val Thorens, arguably with better access to Meribel and the rest of the 3 Valleys is Les Menuires, is a great spot to find affordable accommodation in the world’s largest ski area.

We have an amazing 30% saving for the week beginning 5th of April at Le Hameau de la Sapiniere, a great residence – right on the piste and with a blissfull Jacuzzi to relax in the evenings.
