The February snow conditions have provided some wonderful half term skiing and now, with more snow on the horizon, we’re hoping that the remainder of the season – including the Easter holidays – will be just as good.
Don’t forget to reserve your airport parking at least 24 hours before you go – this is especially important during peak holiday periods. 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.
