Top Reasons to go Spring Skiing

Less layers, goggle tans, quiet slopes and fantastic deals… this can only mean one thing – spring skiing! The days lengthen and the temperatures are warmer, leaving more time to really enjoy the snow and the sun. All of the reasons above, and more, make spring one of the best times to go skiing. Here are some other top reasons to go on a spring ski holiday…

 

Warmer Weather

April Ski Holiday

Forget thermal layers, forget about wearing a snood and you can certainly forget about those hand warmers! When you go skiing in the spring, it’s usually warm enough for just a t-shirt under your ski gear and a lot of the time, you’ll even want to ski with your jacket open. No more frozen fingers and numb toes, with spring skiing you’ll be basking in the beautiful sunshine on the chairlifts and will need a lot less hot chocolate stops to warm up!

 

Spring Snow

Snow is one of the reasons to go spring skiing

With many resorts open well into April, you’ve still got time to make the most of the rest of the ski season and the fantastic snow conditions. That being said, you’re best to go to a high-altitude resort to guarantee good snow in case there isn’t a late season dumping like last year. Val Thorens is the highest resort in Europe and the lifts rise to 3,200m so still have a great snow coverage even in the spring. Zermatt has the highest ski resort lift access point in Europe and guarantees some fantastic late season skiing! Tignes has high-altitude skiing on its Grande Motte glacier allowing it to remain open nine months of the year!

 

Mountain Festivals

Springtime in the mountains brings live music and lots of partying. There’s nothing quite like a music festival on the slopes! Some of the best mountain festivals this year include Chamonix Unlimited Festival in Chamonix during April and Zermatt Unplugged in Zermatt also during April. Both of these festivals have an incredible lineup and will not disappoint!

 

Quieter Slopes

Reasons to go spring skiing

No queues for the lifts and the whole piste to yourself – absolute bliss. In the busier months of the ski season, like January and February, this is usually rare. However, when you go spring skiing you can expect this nearly every day of your holiday! Spring is also a great time for beginners and families as they will have the whole slope to play around on without having to worry too much about other people flying past.

 

Sunbathing in the Snow

Warmer weather is a reason to go spring skiing

Just because you’re surrounded by snow, doesn’t mean you can’t sunbathe as well. Gone are the days of desperately trying to find a table inside of a mountain restaurant so you can warm up. In the spring you will be desperate to claim that deckchair on the terrace and try to even out that goggle tan… just don’t forget to pack your sunscreen!

 

Longer Days

Longer days mean longer après – who can argue with that? Sip on a refreshing glass of bubbly whilst soaking up the beautiful sunshine and the fabulous atmosphere! It’s not just après ski that you can enjoy for longer in the spring, the longer days will also give you a chance to discover more activities in the afternoon and into the early evening. Why not try the thrilling experience of parapenting? Or explore the mountains with a dog sled ride? With so much to do in resort and with longer days to enjoy it, you’ll fall in love with spring skiing even more!

 

Great Ski Deals
