Spring skiing is one of our favourite times to ski and it can be an enjoyable experience for the whole family as the weather is usually milder and the days are longer than during the winter months. However, conditions can vary depending on the location and altitude of the ski resort that you choose.

Here are just a few reasons why we love spring skiing:

  1. Warmer weather: As spring arrives, the temperatures in Europe start to rise, making for a more comfortable skiing experience. You can enjoy the sunshine and take off a layer or two, which is a welcome relief after skiing during the colder winter months.
  2. Longer days: During spring, the days start getting longer, which means more time to enjoy the slopes. You can take advantage of the extra daylight and explore more of the mountain.
  3. Fewer crowds: Spring skiing in Europe typically sees fewer crowds than peak winter months, which means shorter lift queues and more space on the slopes. Plus, with fewer people around, you can enjoy a more relaxed and laid-back atmosphere.
  4. Great snow conditions: Despite the warmer weather, many European ski resorts still offer great snow conditions in the spring, particularly at higher altitudes. Resorts like Val Thorens, Tignes or Val d’Isere in France or Zermatt in Switzerland offer excellent skiing conditions up until the end of April.

Aside from skiing, there are usually plenty of other activities to enjoy in ski resorts during Easter, such as hiking, mountain biking, and visiting local festivals and events.

Skiing with children can be both fun and rewarding, but it does require some extra planning and preparation.

Here are some useful tips to help make your family ski holiday this Easter a success:

  1. Choose the right resort: Look for a ski resort that offers a dedicated kids’ ski area or ski school. These areas will have gentle slopes, kid-friendly features like magic carpets or conveyor belts, and instructors who specialise in teaching children to ski.
  2. Get the right gear: Make sure your kids have appropriate ski gear, including warm clothing, helmets, and properly fitted boots and skis.
  3. Take lessons: Even if you’re an experienced skier, it’s a good idea to sign your kids up for ski lessons. Ski instructors can teach your kids the proper technique, safety procedures, and how to enjoy skiing. Be sure to book these in advance as there will be a limited number of places, especially during peak booking periods.
  4. Plan for breaks: Skiing can be tiring for kids, so make sure to plan for regular breaks throughout the day. Pack snacks and water, and take regular breaks on the mountain throughout the day.
  5. Keep it fun: Remember that skiing with kids is about having fun and creating memories. Take the pressure off and focus on enjoying the experience together. Play games on the slopes, build a snowman, or take a break to have a hot chocolate.

Overall, skiing with kids can be a great way to spend time together as a family and introduce your kids to a fun and active winter sport. Just remember to plan ahead and keep the focus on having fun.
