1. Mountain Picnics
Everyone loves a long lazy lunch up the mountain, but dining in restaurants, especially during the kids holidays, can be a headache with crowded restaurants, long wait times and some overly expensive sub-standard grub. Switch to Easter and you can enjoy mountaintop picnics in total seclusion. Pack a lunch, wander through alpine forests or take a short walk from the top of a chair lift and you can create the perfect private spot for an amazing sunny mountaintop picnic.
2. Ski Longer
As we roll into spring we are well passed the Winter Solstice, the shortest day of the year, with April offering longer days to ski. The pistes stay open up to an hour later than December giving you more time to ski and the lighter evenings offer plenty of poste-piste time for village strolls, mountain walks and open-air crêpe eating until at least 9pm!
3. Warmer Weather
It can be hard to bear the cold of a winter ski holiday. Even as adults cold toes and freezing fingers can push our resolve to have a good time to the limit. Add little ones to the mix and it is not a match made in heaven. Which is why Easter Skiing can be a better option for families. With warmer temperatures kids can enjoy the snow without feeling the cold. Sunny skies offer a kinder environment when learning a new snow sport and who doesn't love a bluebird powder day? Just remember to pack your sunscreen.
