As you can see from our latest snow report, there’s been snow in the Alps this week, adding to the fabulous cover in most resorts. Off-piste conditions include powder – and therefore avalanche risk, so if you’re thinking of venturing off piste make sure you hire a guide to help you find the best snow, safely.
If you fancy some spring skiing, take a look at our latest ski deals below – and it’s also worth checking the websites of the major tour operators. Don’t forget to reserve your airport parking at least 24 hours before you go – this is especially important during peak periods such as the Easter holidays. If you’re flying from Gatwick, Cophall Parking has some offers just for Welove2ski viewers.
