SNO doubt about it, Easter skiing’s incredible. The days are longer and weather’s milder – get your fill of spring skiing conditions on crisp mornings followed by cruisy afternoons, après ski and sunbathing.
The efficacy of modern snowmaking and ubiquity of the snow canons themselves mean plenty of resorts can stay open this late in the season – which makes the range of Easter ski deals brilliantly broad. For the best conditions, look to a ski resort with pistes above 2000m – ideally north facing ones which’ll get the most shade. Better yet, make it somewhere with the aforementioned plus a glacier and you’ll be enjoying some of the greatest Easter snow around. Want to stay in one of the best spring ski resorts worldwide?

SNO-expert Tip: if flights sell out, for cheap Easter ski deals, go self-drive!
Overnight is fast, with empty roads, and sleeping family/friends. Thanks to the warmer weather at this time of year, the mountain roads are usually much more manageable. Arrive early & be one of the few skiing on changeover day, with the rest still on flights/transfers.
