Half term is almost over, so prices will drop considerably after what is one of the highest-priced weeks of the season. If you haven’t opted to ski at this time of year you might want to consider a quieter week of spring skiing instead.
As well as taking a look at the deals below, it’s also worth checking the websites of the major tour operators. Make sure you stay safe: take local advice and have all the necessary equipment with you before even considering leaving the marked piste.
Don’t forget to reserve your airport parking at least 24 hours before you go – this is especially important during peak holiday periods such as February and Easter. If you’re flying from Gatwick, Cophall Parking has some offers just for Welove2ski viewers.
