Fabulous snow continues everywhere in the Alps, as you can see from our snow report and YSE Ski‘s photo (below) of one of their chalets, taken in Val d’Isere on Friday. Half term will be upon us soon and, unbelievably, in what is the best season for 40 years, there’s still some availability for that week.
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.
