There’s still time to book yourself a week of April skiing, when you can benefit from the long sunny days and warm enough temperatures to enjoy alfresco lunches. Make sure you pack plenty of sunscreen, sunglasses, and a hat to wear if you’re sitting on a terrace.
As well as taking a look at the deals below, it’s also worth finding out what the ski specialist travel agencies have on offer, such as SNO, Snowfinders and Ski in Luxury. Most of the major tour operators have ski holiday deals available throughout the winter, too.
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.
