There is still some availability for the half term and Easter high season dates, as well as plenty for the rest of this month. So if you fancy a holiday in the current excellent skiing conditions, why not book now? Make sure you stay safe, though: take local advice and have all the necessary equipment with you before even considering leaving the marked piste.

Don’t forget to reserve your airport parking at least 24 hours before you go – 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.
