Why you should choose an Easter Ski Trip?
The benefits an Easter Ski Trip are a no brainer. The weather is usually warmer, the sun is brighter, and the days are longer – making for a perfect day on the slopes. The previous month’s snowfall is often complimented by snowmaking facilities, making for better snow conditions. Easter isn’t a peak period and prices on average are a lot more competitive. You may even find that some resorts’ lift pass prices are even reduced, so if your group is looking for a cost-effective option, Easter is the time for you.
Skiing in the sunshine
You don’t naturally associate skiing with warmer weather, sunshine, and blue skies but choosing to head out in Easter means you can cut out the blistering cold and have a pleasantly warm skiing experience! This is a major benefit to novice or beginner skiers who will be taking part in lessons often standing still for longer periods of time and listening to instruction, instead of freezing in their boots they will have a much more bearable experience.

More affordable prices
It’s not only warmer but it will most definitely be more affordable especially if you decide to jet off on the second week of the Easter holidays as there is less demand for accommodation and flights. Avoiding the busiest periods in the skiing calendar like the February half term can save you money on not only flights but accommodation too. You’ll also find most resorts have reduced prices and deals on lift passes.
Still plenty of snow
People often cite the lack of snow late in the season, but that’s not the case if you know where to go, luckily our Easter ski trips feature high altitude resorts which is the secret to getting the best snow. Aim high: the higher the resort, the snowier it is, which means the snow has a lower risk of melting. It also helps if you’re near a glacier or have north-facing hills.
Take it slow
Visiting the slopes when it’s not completely crammed with people is a wildly different experience. Skiing is all about taking your time and doing your own thing, whether it’s going off-piste at a fast pace or taking a leisurely cross-country ski to soak in the landscape. Unfortunately, you don’t always have this freedom when the slopes are busy since crowds dictate when and where you spend your time.
What we’ve learned
- Lifts are often quieter, so less time queuing, more time skiing.
- With fewer people on the slopes, they will be safer.
- It will most definitely be cheaper.
- You’ll enjoy sunnier, warmer, and longer blue sky days.
- Enjoy the slopes and scenery at your own pace.
