5 good reasons to ski in spring

How about a skiing holiday in spring? Guaranteed sun, warmer temperatures, more sunlight and empty slopes. It’s the perfect getaway for celebrating the end of winter and enjoying the last snow before next winter.

What’s not to like? Here are five good reasons to ski in spring:

1. Night falls later so you get more sunlight and temperatures are warmer

No need to set the alarm for dawn to fit enough skiing in! The sun sets later. The lifts are open longer. That means more time to ski before night falls.

The icing on the cake? You don’t need as many layers in February. Fly down the slopes in a T-shirt at the end of the day to your favourite après-ski destination on the slopes or in the village.

2. It’s the perfect time for beginners

Learning to ski isn’t easy for adults. That said, spring is the perfect season to try it and experience your first downhill thrills. There is still good snow cover and it’s soft and supple for a gentle learning curve. What’s more, the weather’s warmer and the sun’s with you. Another bonus: the slopes are less crowded, making for more relaxed skiing and less waiting for lifts!
