Why Go Skiing in the Spring?

Or why choose ski holidays in April-May?

1) For the best ski holiday deals…
Ski passes are cheaper at the end of the season. Just think about all the slopes you can try for less money than in February! Also, did you known that in Italy, kids can ski for free in Superski Dolomite area?  But ski passes are not the only prices being cut. Plenty of ski rental companies have special offers at this time of year, some of them offering up to 70% off. And if you are still not convinced then think of all the ski equipment shops in the resort that give away last season gear for massively marked-down prices.

2) For the special events taking place..
Ski resorts are about to close but before they do, they want to celebrate one last time! Across the Alps, there are unforgettable special events taking place. The beginning of April, this year, saw the first Go Wild Outdoor Music Festival across Les Portes du Soleil skiing area (France-Switzerland), where musicians performed on the slopes. A whole week of free concerts in the snow! If you missed this event, don’t worry, there is still more to see. Make sure you go where your perfect event is held.

3) For good ski conditions
First: the weather. The sun is almost as important as snow.  In April-May, you can often have the best weather. It will be quieter on the slopes and you will be able to make the most of your ski holidays.

Not every resort is open at the end of April, but Austria is generally a good option to go skiing in April-May. Dozens of Austrian ski resorts remain open until the end of May, even June! Kaprun is a good example. If you want to go to France, then head to Tignes which is the highest resort in Europe. Zermatt in Switzerland is also an excellent choice.

As you can see, skiing in April-May is ideal for every ski and snowboard fan! So there’s no need to be worried with the temperatures rising, you will get snow, if you know where to go!
