As you will have seen from our recent snow report, after a sunny half term the Alps has had fresh snow and temperatures have been cooler. The Pyrenees saw more snow last week as well. It all bodes well for some good spring skiing, so why not book yourself a much-needed March or April ski trip!

Always eagerly await your mailers to see what great articles or offeres there are, problem is that they’re always tailored just for British readers with prices only in pounds and flights to and from the UK… You may find you’ve got A LOT of non UK English readers out there who would appreciate packages in Euros… Anyway, just a thought. Keep up the great work!!!

You’re quite right Thomas, we do have a lot of readers from other place and not just the UK – mainly European countries but also USA, Canada, Australia, New Zealand and South Africa. All of our deals come from British-based tour operators, so their prices are in Sterling with flights to and from Britain. We’d love to get some deals from tour operators in other countries!
