Its now well documented that 2018 has been the best winter for 30 years for winter sports enthusiasts. So why are so many skiers putting their skis and boards back in the garage?
Its now officially spring but somebody forgot to tell the mountains their conditions are anything but spring like. Don’t get me wrong, I love spring skiing in a normal year, but this isn’t a normal year. Most ski resorts across the Alps have been getting snow every week all season with most reporting a snow base over 4m.

My friends Tony, Matt and Brian returned from 4 days in Sauze d’Oulx last week. Tony said “It was like skiing in spring sunshine, but on perfect snow all day long, the conditions were as good when we end the day, as they were when we set out in the morning”. “No ice, although it stayed below freezing all day but because of the sun and probably the wonderful skiing conditions, we never felt cold”
There are still great last minute ski deals for this winter with discounts up top 50% off catered ski chalets on the 7th April.
My next ski will be on our end of season ski trip where I’ll be joined by 350 clients to Club Med’s Sensations in Val Thorens. Sadly for you, this trip sold out in September!
