The last week I was lucky enough to be skiing in Les Menuires and St Martin de Belleville in the 3 Valleys. But the huge amount of snow so far this winter isn’t just restricted to the French Alps – it’s also in places like St Anton in the Austrian Tirol and Zermatt in Switzerland. We still have plenty of February ski deals, including half term, so don’t miss out on some of the best conditions in decades.
Don’t forget to reserve your airport parking at least 24 hours before you go – this is especially important during peak holiday periods. If you’re flying from Gatwick, Cophall Parking has some offers just for Welove2ski viewers.
