Spring Sunshine in La Plagne

 

With fresh snowfall of over 50cm across many French ski resorts, conditions are great for this time of year.  More snow is also on the menu this Easter weekend so you should have no problem skiing your way through spring. 

 

March Snow Fall In Les Gets

 

One of the top reasons to ski this April is to take advantage of those blue bird days, waking up to fresh snow and blue skies. The increased sunshine hours, warmer temperatures and longer days provide idyllic conditions for skiing.

 

Fresh Snow Blue Skies

 

Stay in a lesser-known, traditional resort with access to higher, well-known ski areas such as; Samoëns for Flaine, Les Gets for Avoriaz or Tignes les Boisses for Tignes/Val d’Isere. This way you could avoid big name resort pricing but still take advantage of the high-altitude snow.

Spring skiing has other perks too! For those after a little something more, many French ski resorts offer a wide variety of closing parties and events to end the season. La Folie Douce are putting on some great shows this year including a colour party on the 4th April in St Gervais and the 3 Valleys are holding the 13th edition of their ski Enduro.
