Book your ski holiday at Easter this season to experience sunny snow conditions and less crowded slopes! We have the top 6 reasons to choose to book your holiday at Easter!
1. It’s the time for socialising
During the Easter holidays, it is always fun on the slopes. But not only on the slopes, but the après-ski also comes to life during the Easter holidays. So you don’t have to worry about sitting at the bar alone. Plenty of families and friends head to soak but the spring sun and enjoy the stunning scenery.
2. Enjoy the sun!
An advantage of a skiing holiday in the spring is, of course, the amount of sunshine that you will get on the slopes, this means it is a lot less cold. Apply a lot of sun cream and drink plenty of water. Make sure you have ski goggles or sunglasses that have UV protection.
All the shops want to get rid of their stock at the end of the season so now is the time you will see big discounts on ski gear. Are you looking for a new pair of skis or do you want a new ski jacket? Then make your move now, an take advantage of the savings!
With the weather beautiful, and the end of the ski season fast approaching, there are often numerous events in the Alps during the Easter holidays. For example, you have the Tomorrowland Winter, where DJs play to crowds in Alpe d’Huez or Snowboxx in Avoriaz. Say, there is no better way to celebrate Easter than with a smashing party in the snow?
5. Local Easter celebrations
One of the advantages of going on a skiing holiday at Easter is that you can enjoy the Easter celebrations in the snow. For example, a large Easter fire is lit in many places in Austria! Everyone comes together to drink mulled wine and toasting marshmallows. Did you think finding eggs was difficult enough in your own garden? Then try to find all the delicious chocolate eggs under the snow with your children!
6. Easter brunches
In Austria, you have delicious Easter brunches with carrot cakes and Pumpernickel or Easter bunnies with quark and tasty boiled eggs. In France, they like to make eggs benedict and to eat a lot of chocolate. So that cup of hot chocolate after skiing is not only delicious but also traditionally justified. Easter eggs are a national tradition in Italy. However, these are not the regular eggs that you might be used too. They are giant eggs of chocolate or braided of bread, and inside is a gift for the person to whom you give the egg.

Whether you want to enjoy all the local Easter traditions, or just enjoy skiing with a sun, an Easter skiing holiday is an excellent idea! Looking to go away with the family?
