It’s sunny. It’s sunny AND it’s snowy. The word bluebird came from Spring skiing. You can enjoy warm temperatures, longer days and extended lift opening hours. Pack your bikini and your ski boots. You are going to need it all.
Quieter Pistes & More Skiing
They are quieter. Fact. The school holiday madness of Christmas and February is over. The kids are back learning algebra and their parents are back at work. That leaves quiet pistes and mountains for the rest of us. So, no lifts queues, much longer ski days, AND quieter pistes – this already equals a lot more skiing.
Get the best seats in the best restaurants
Whether you prefer a secluded mountain picnic on a summit with panoramic views or a Michelin-starred lunch, in springtime, you’ll get your first choice of mountain dining experience AND your first choice of seats. The mountain is yours and alfresco dining is in.
Lower priced luxury
The fact is, peak weeks command peak prices. If you travel off-peak and ski Springtime your luxury ski holiday will cost you less. Lift passes are discounted towards the end of the season, ski instructors are more available, everything is more accessible, making for some incredible savings. This leaves you more to spend on luxury extras, so spoil yourself with some treats.
A great time to learn something new – for you and young kids
With nobody on the slopes it's a great time to book some lessons and learn something new. No one wants to be outside their comfort zone on a busy February piste. But in March and April, bring on the snowboard lessons or cross country skiing, try telemarking, or snow-shoeing; or make Spring the time you introduce your preschoolers to skiing when warm weather, quieter pistes and available ski instructors means they are much more likely to fall in love with the mountains.
