As the first flowers begin to bloom and the days grow longer, many think that the ski season is coming to an end 😱 However, mountain enthusiasts know well: spring is an exceptional time to enjoy winter sports ⛷️. Whether for beginner skiers or the most experienced, spring offers a multitude of advantages !


Good weather !

Indeed, snow melting begins in March. But that's no reason to neglect ski resorts in spring! Snow is still present until the end of April, and many resorts still have their doors open. Why ski in spring ? Well, first of all, the days are longer and sunnier ☀️ allowing for longer skiing sessions (and for those who don't feel like skiing too much, sunbathing on the terrace is an option 😎). These are ideal conditions for skiing in the mountains, or for engaging in other après-ski activities🛷

❄️Moreover, the snow is softer and easier to ski on: this is particularly appreciated by beginners and children, offering them ideal conditions to learn or progress safely. Contrary to what one might think, spring snow can offer excellent skiing conditions.

The beautiful days of March/April are waiting for you on the slopes!





Fewer people: more space


Another significant advantage: ski resorts are less crowded, which means shorter wait times at ski lifts and more space to fully enjoy skiing ⛷️This also means fewer risks of collisions, allowing for safer skiing on the slopes 😌 With lower crowds, it's not just the weather that's mild: prices are generally more advantageous, whether it's for lift passes, accommodations, or equipment rentals.


Where to go ?

Many resorts keep their doors open until the end of April. This is the case for Avoriaz, La Plagne Montchavin-les-Coches, Les Arcs, La Clusaz, and Peisey Vallandry. This gives you a vast playground to have fun and perfect your turns 🏂 And if you want to ski even later and enjoy the slopes until the last moment, you can still head to Tignes, Val d'Isère, Chamonix and Val Thorens until the beginning of May 🏔️

🚠 So, are you tempted by spring skiing ?
