Easter Ski Holidays in the French Alps are a time of rejuvenation, both for nature and for those who visit. As the season transitions, the Alps offer a unique blend of spring skiing with longer, sunnier days and still plenty of snow. Here’s your guide to making the most of an Easter ski holiday in this stunning region.
Events and Activities for Easter
Easter in the French Alps is not just about skiing; it’s a celebration. Resorts typically host various events, like Easter egg hunts and snake gliss egg races for the children.
Where to Ski
During Easter, the snow conditions in the French Alps are still excellent, especially at higher altitudes. The days are warmer, but the nights remain cold, preserving the snow quality.
- Val d’Isère: Known for its extensive and varied terrain, it’s ideal for all skiing levels and a favourite for families and groups.
- Courchevel: Part of the Three Valleys (voted the best ski destination in the world), the world’s largest ski area, Courchevel offers well-groomed runs, perfect for those long, leisurely Easter ski days.
- Méribel: Nestled in the heart of the Three Valleys, Méribel provides a mix of challenging and gentle slopes, suitable for both beginners and expert skiers.
Après-Ski and Dining
The après-ski scene during Easter is vibrant, with sunny terraces becoming the perfect spot to unwind. Enjoy a hot chocolate or a glass of wine while soaking up the sun and the lively atmosphere. Each resort boasts a range of dining options, from traditional Savoyard cuisine to fine dining experiences.
