February has been a snowy month in France and Switzerland in particular and, as you will see in our latest snow report, more of the white stuff is on the way. This makes the prospect of a late ski holiday an attractive one – although it’s always sensible to stick to the high resorts for the best Easter skiing.
Check for ski holiday deals on the websites of the major operators such as Crystal Ski, Inghams, Mark Warner, Neilson, and Ski World. It’s always worth having a look at what the ski specialist travel agencies – such as Sno, Snowfinders, Alpine Answers, Momentum Ski and Snow-Wise – have on offer at the moment.
And don’t forget to book your parking at least 24 hours before you go. I Love Meet and Greet has some great deals at Gatwick, Heathrow, Stansted, Manchester, Liverpool and Birmingham airports.
