With a season as good as this one, you can safely book an Easter trip knowing that there will be snow when you go. Stay high if you can, as this is always where you will find the best spring skiing conditions. Temperatures are due to drop everywhere this week, so there’s still time to slip in a quick top-up weekend or go for a longer stay.
