4. IT’S MADE FOR KIDS
Easter in the mountains seems to be geared up for families. In resorts like Morzine and Les Gets the tourist office runs month-long kids festivals offering different activities each day, all completely free. Kids can enjoy magic shows, creative workshops, frozen treasure hunts, carpentry for kids, huge inflatable assault courses, crazy pong and model-making to name just a few. There is even a cheese rolling competition where you have to race around an assault course rolling a large Thom cheese. I promise, you’ll be jealous!
5. THE MUSIC
There are music festivals galore over the months of March and April, with free open-air concerts on-piste and amazing evening events in-resort. From Jazz, to Electro, to good old-fashioned Rock n Roll you are spoilt for choice for music in the mountains over Easter. Check out SnowBoxx and Rock the Pistes in March or look at the Easter events calendar for your resort of choice.
6. SNOW SURE
Ski resorts have been closing mid/end of April for the last few years but the local residents have enjoyed fresh powder and empty mountains for up to a month after, skiing well into late May. April has been sunny yet snow sure for years. It’s the perfect last outing on your skis before the seasons close.
