The winter finale, and therefore the sunniest time for skiing, has now begun. Spring days with mild temperatures and firmly packed snow provide for great skiing experiences in the major winter sports resorts in France, Austria and Italy. SnowTrex recommends five attractive hotspots for enjoyable spring skiing.
Ski village on the piste
Resort: Chamrousse Price: 1 week’s ski holiday incl. lift pass from £103 per person.
Chamrousse, located in the French Belledonne mountain range, is one of the top destinations for price-economic holidays, with direct piste access. The chalet-village Le Domaine de l’Arselle offers traditional wooden façades and perfect location right at the foot of the ski area. The cosy apartments are ideally suited for families or groups, who don’t mind self-catering, but also don’t want to save on commodities, e.g. final cleaning. The complex is located at 1,700 metres altitude and offers 90 kilometres of pistes, which include a slopes for all levels of ability.
Super-saver offers for families
Resort: SuperDévoluy Price: 1 week’s ski holiday incl. lift pass from £134 per person.
In the southern French Alps, the climate is slightly milder, the sun shines more often and yet the altitude provides for enough snow. The resort Dévoluy and the ski area SuperDévoluy benefit from all this! Many special offers are available for families, for which the resort has been accredited the “Famille Plus Montagne” quality seal. We recommend staying in the chalet residence Le Hameau du Puy, which is one of the more comfortable accommodations within its price-range. It is located directly at the foot of the ski area, offering over 100 kilometres of piste, as a lift union with its neighbour La Joue du Loup.
On the sunny balcony
Resort: Valmeinier Price: 1 week’s ski holiday incl. lift pass from £126 per person.
The residence Les Hauts de Valmeinier counts four quality stars and is located in the higher part of Valmeinier. At the same time, you are right in the heart of the happening: the accommodation is situated directly on the piste, which leads you easily down to the valley lift station and to the sunny balconies of the resort centre with its cafés and bars. Grab deckchair and relax after your day of skiing, whilst you can enjoy the others working themselves up and down the slopes. Be sure not to relax too long, otherwise you won’t get a chance to explore the full extent of the 150 kilometres of pistes of the Galibier Thabor area, between Valmeinier and Valloire.
Shopping & skiing
Resort: Livigno Price: 1 week’s ski holiday incl. lift pass & breakfast from £293 per person.
The first thing one thinks of when hearing about Livigno is the possibility of toll-free shopping. Sure, the shopping facilities are extensive, but the pretty resort and the surrounding ski area has so much more to offer: 115 kilometres of slopes on the local mountains Mottolino and Carosello, beginner areas and snowparks, illuminated night skiing runs and of course some entertaining night-life in the evenings. The hotel Garni Caravasc offers a great package deal for the first two weeks in April, where you get the accommodation, lift pass and daily breakfast included in the price.
Resort: Niederau Price: 1 week’s ski holiday incl. lift pass & HB from £460 per person.
The ski area Ski Juwel offers 109 pistes (145 kilometres of sporty descents including some challenging ski routes), and therefore is one of the top ski areas in Tyrol, stretching from the Alpbach valley right over to the Wildschönau. In a sunny valley, just behind the Schatzberg, lies the traditional mountain village of Niederau. We recommend the Harmony Hotel Hafenwirt, located right at the foot of the mountains Markbachjoch and Lanerköpfl. It offers 3-star quality, and an attractive spa area. Besides the included lift pass, the package deal also provides for half-board with breakfast and dinner. A charming and welcoming atmosphere, romantic mountain idyll and family-friendly skiing are guaranteed here!
