After more than two weeks of almost continuous snowfall in the Alps, there’s been some fabulous skiing recently. So why not join them this February – or later on in spring. We have a dozen deals here, but if you can’t find what you want on this page then it’s also worth having a look at what the ski specialist travel agencies have on offer, such as SNO, Snowfinders and Ski in Luxury. Most of the major tour operators have ski holiday deals available throughout the winter, too.

Don’t forget to reserve your airport parking at least 24 hours before you go – this is especially important during peak holiday periods like February half term. If you’re flying from Gatwick, Cophall Parking has some offers just for Welove2ski readers.
