Plenty of chocolate and heaps of snow. What could be better than an Easter ski holiday?
If you missed out on February half term but still want to take the family skiing, there’s simply no better time of the year to go than Easter. From snow sure paradises to thriving resorts with an eclectic calendar of Easter events – the vibrant atmosphere in our ski resorts at the end of season is intoxicating. You really can't beat taking in the view from an outdoor terrace on a perfect bluebird day.
We've all really missed Easter skiing over the past few seasons, so next season we're ready to go bigger than ever. Take a look at the link below to access our best winter 2021/22 season Easter ski deals or read on if you're looking for a bit more Easter skiing destination inspiration.
Val Thorens, France
The highest ski resort in Europe, Val Thorens is a safe bet when it comes to snow. The gentle slopes at the foot of the resort are very snow sure, making it an excellent end of season destination for beginners. It’s generally expected that this resort will remain open right up until the beginning of May.
A typically lively resort, Val Thorens has an excellent party atmosphere towards the end of season. The usual après scene is complimented by an eclectic calendar of events throughout the end of March and into April.
Obergurgl’s height gives it an edge when it comes to Easter skiing. Its altitude makes it one of the most snow sure resorts in Europe. Its exceptional track record in piste grooming and snow making has resulted in some of our most enjoyable ski memories.
The excellent Top Mountain Star, with its glorious views of the Alps, now has competition as our favourite mountain restaurant in Obergurgl. The recently opened Top Mountain Crosspoint not only serves delicious Austrian cuisine but is also home to Europe’s highest motorbike museum.
Saas Fee, Switzerland
The glacier in this charming village (possibly the prettiest ski resort in the Alps) is open to skiers and snowboarders throughout the year. Saas Fee is a fantastic, family friendly resort. The large nursery slope in the centre of the village is perfect for beginners.
The colourful Saas Fee Easter Festival is great fun for all the family with a wealth of activities to participate in. The highlight of the festival is the Nostalgic Races in which competitors dress in traditional and retro costumes and ski on 'nostalgic' equipment.
Tignes and Val d'Isere, France
With an eclectic calendar of end of season events in both resorts, there is also plenty to keep the family entertained. A unique spectacle, Val d’Isere hosts the Winter Golf Cup at the end of March while Tignes welcomes in April with the lively Live in Tignes music festival. This makes the area an excellent choice for groups.
St Christoph, Austria
One of the highest ski resorts in Austria, St Christoph is a delightful little village for an Easter ski holiday. This picturesque village feels remote but is actually part of the largest interconnected ski area in Austria.
Nearby St Anton needs no introduction. Easily reached from St Christoph, St Anton is popularly considered one of the most challenging ski areas in the Alps. What's more, its reputation for lively après ski is unrivalled, making it the ideal place for an Easter party on the slopes.
With glacier skiing and lifts stretching well above 3,000m, Zermatt is an excellent choice for an end of season ski holiday. Situated in the shadow of the iconic Matterhorn this is also one of the most breathtaking and beautifully scenic ski resorts in the Alps.
At Easter time, there is often a chance for families to join Wolli, the local mascot, on an Easter egg hunt in the heart of the village. There are also usually opportunities in resort for children to make their own chocolate Easter bunnies. Zermatt is an ideal resort for families.
