The sun is out and over 400 snow cannons are ready to pump out the powder in the St. Martin/Les Menuires valley at Easter.
We’ve got hotels with excellent facilities – take a look at the Hotel Alp, which is a friendly little place situated right next to the gondolas for doorstep skiing, plus it’s just a minute away from the ski school. The village has all the shops you’ll need to cater for yourself in an apartment - we’re Sno in love with Les Chalets Du Gypse apartments for their comfy wooden clad rooms in a central spot near the shops.
Skiers will be soaking up the rays on the sunny slopes, so sun cream is essential unless you’re after some fetching goggle-marks. To catch the best snow conditions hitch a gondola up the mountain as soon as it opens and enjoy the freshly groomed runs. Stop for lunch at one of the mountain restaurants – our favourite is Le Corbeleys at the top of the St. Martin gondola. In the afternoons the north facing runs will probably be best for the shade they receive. Head towards the Pointe de la Masse and swoop down the ‘Lac Noir’ black or ‘Les Enverses’ blue runs.
Ski schools are available to look after children, teens and adults in the mornings and afternoons. The ESF’s ‘Piou Piou’ club will take kids from 3 years up, teaching them to find their feet on skis whilst having fun with games and activities. ESF take up groups of teenagers and adults too and private lessons are an alternative choice for all ages looking to improve more speedily.
