Due to all the stormy weather we’ve had in the last couple of months, most resorts are enjoying spring with plenty of snow on their slopes. But with warmer weather in place, it’s now time to consider the high-altitude resorts and have a look at our guide to the best resorts for spring skiing for tips on where to go.
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 – especially in the high-season Easter holidays. I Love Meet and Greet has some great deals at Gatwick, Heathrow, Stansted, Manchester, Liverpool and Birmingham airports
