The good news is that it’s been snowing in Austria, parts of France and Switzerland, and there is more due in the French and Italian Alps in the second half of this coming week.
Most of this week’s offers are for this month, but to have a reasonable choice for later in the season – including where to stay, when to go and how to get there, it makes sense to book as soon as you can. It’s also worth checking for offers on the websites of the major tour operators.
If you’re flying from Gatwick, don’t forget to reserve your airport parking at least 24 hours before you go. Cophall Parking has some offers especially for Welove2ski readers.
