If you are planning on squeezing in a last-minute April trip, make sure you stay high – or at least choose a resort where the ski area goes up to a high altitude.
A few offers for summer in the Alps are beginning to come in and we will be continuing our Deals page throughout the summer – with offers for summer hiking, biking and watersports in the Alps. Whenever new offers come in for next season we will publish them on this page as well.
Don’t forget to reserve your airport parking at least 24 hours before you leave. If you’re flying from Gatwick, Cophall Parking has some offers just for Welove2ski viewers.
Due to readers’ requests, we now also have our ski holiday prices in euros (with the exchange rate correct at the time of writing), although you should contact tour operators direct for a quote that doesn’t include travel from the UK.
