There's 'snow' skiing like Spring skiing

Spring is almost upon us and while it doesn’t ‘look’ like Spring just yet (we’ve had more snow this week), we’ve had wall to wall sunshine. Our team and guests have even been out sunbathing on deckchairs in the snow! While early and mid-season skiing is usually favoured, there’s definitely something to be said for Spring skiing. Warmer weather and sunshine doesn’t necessarily mean that the snow disappears (the snow cannons won’t let it!) and the mountains really do come into their own allowing you to experience extra activities as well as skiing. If you haven’t booked your budget snow holiday yet, there’s still time to get out and on the slopes. We’ve put together some fab reasons for why Spring skiing can be just as much fun.

Longer days...

...means more time on the slopes as well as longer après and other activities. Pack in a day’s skiing from morning to late afternoon and then experience a new activity before the sun sets. The French Alps have some extraordinary views which you can take advantage of by following the local hiking trails (or otherwise by snowshoe if the route is still heavily covered). Alternatively, hire some mountain bikes and follow the cycle paths. Check out some of the local routes in Les Arcs here . Many of the resorts put on extra events to make the most of the lighter evenings so keep an eye on the ‘what’s on’ listings or ask our team for recommendations.

Lower tariffs and great deals

Sounds good to us! You can usually snap up a bargain with Spring dates being considered low season (other than Easter). As well as well as there being greater availability, you can often find more inclusive packages, saving you time and money on booking the extras. We have some availability during the week of 30th March for a long weekend stay or week package. B&B, self-catered and Half Board options available.

Wildlife

It’s not just home where nature comes alive in Spring. Here in Vallandry and Serre Chevalier, the landscape awakens from its Winter slumber… The scenery changes and the wildlife start to duck their heads out into the local area. Up in the mountains you might spot the marmotes out exploring, and the birds tweet their loudest. If you love nature, Spring in the French Alps combines the best parts of Winter and Summer.

Quieter slopes...

... mean shorter queues at not just the lifts (which is we agree is the best benefit!), but at the in-resort cafes, bars and restaurants. You really can slow down life during a Spring holiday. Sit back, relax and soak up the sun.

if you are interested in a cheap snow holiday before the season ends in April, do get in touch and we will be happy to help you arrange an amazing skiing experience this Spring.

Customer Reviews

The staff were more like friends than employees and knew the area very well. Can't fault them. They sorted an issue with my wife's ski pass with as little stress as was possible. To start your day of skiing one had only to walk about 20m from the door, pop your skis on and off you go. You could eit...

S.K.

By dispensing with things such as towels and complimentary toiletries (bring your own) and guaranteed en suite bathrooms, Hucksters has managed to create accommodation that is definitely communal and cheap but in that no-frills way that makes you feel pretty smug at the money you are saving. It has ...

If you're looking for 5* accommodation where chalet girls wash your feet and sing you to sleep, just stop reading now. If you're not one of the privileged elite, but still want to see snow once or twice a year, head here. I cannot really fault any aspect of the holiday. If you want a low cost skiin...

We have travelled with Hucksters as both a school group and a family for an incredible 18 years. Never have I worked with a company who is so flexible and accommodating to individual needs.
