Now that half term is underway, those who haven’t opted to ski at this time of year might like to consider a week of spring skiing. A couple of the deals here include some valuable extras, such as free airport parking and free lift passes.
As well as taking a look at the deals below, it’s also worth checking the websites of the major tour operators. Make sure you stay safe: take local advice and have all the necessary equipment with you before even considering leaving the marked piste.
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.
