Will it be a bumper end to the ski season?

clock 26th February 2015 | comment0 Comments
In the past few weeks snow conditions this season have completely turned around. It may have been a slow start to the ski season after the warm December temperatures, but since mid-January things have been looking up. There has been a series of huge snow dumps teamed with a string of sunny days occurring over the last few weeks, dramatically building up the snow bases of ski resorts across Europe. February Snow The February half term was a perfect week for a ski holiday with up to 60 cm of snowfall on the half term transfer weekend then beautiful blue skies for most of the week after. View current snow conditions in our latest snow reports. As the busiest ski week of the season came to a close, it was reported in the long range forecasts that we were in for one of the biggest snow storms of the season over the next 9 days, including up to 231 cm of snowfall in just a few days. The Alps may not have received the 2m foreseen but 120 cm in Soldeu, 98 cm in Cervinia, 82 cm in Grindelwald and 66 cm in Avoriaz was very welcomed by the post-half term skiers and snowboarders. Snow bases and snow conditions are currently superb for the start of March. Particularly Austrian resorts are looking significantly healthy for this time of year (compared to last year):  Resort February 2014 February 2015 St Anton 53cm / 128 cm 59 cm / 221 cm Solden 12 cm / 270 cm 15 cm / 317 cm Obergurgl 79 cm / 177 cm 61 cm / 205 cm Lech 100 cm / 115 cm 96 cm / 171 cm Lower pistes cm / top pistes cm March Skiing Skiing in March is one of the most best times of the year, as temperatures start to warm up you can enjoy the fantastic ski conditions in the morning, then by the afternoon you can embrace the après atmosphere on a sun terrace on a mountain top bar. With the current great snow depths in many resorts across Europe, a ski holiday in March will be excellent. With even more snow storms on the horizon over the next 9 days, there will be no shortage of snow for the rest of the season. The snow conditions we have at present are the best so far this season and with Easter week just 4 weeks away it’s looking like there will be plenty of snow to enjoy this year. After Easter falling so late in April last year, this wasn’t a great time for a ski holiday. With Easter Sunday falling on the 5th April this year, many families will be heading out to ski resorts for the first week of April to spend the Easter holidays in the snow. Top tips when booking an Easter ski holiday With temperatures rising towards the end of the ski season, your save bet is to aim for high resorts. It is always difficult to predict the snow conditions at the end of season so be sure to choose a ski resort with high altitude to secure the best snow conditions. You want enough snow to build a snow bunny don’t you?   Best resorts for end of season skiing With the Grande Motte Glacier in Espace Killy open through till May and the highest ski lift peaking at 3450m you can guarantee good snow in Tignes and Val d’Isere for Easter. Val Thorens is the highest ski resort in Europe, as well as in the largest ski area in the world with over 600 km of piste in the 3 Valleys Les Arc 2000 – the magic is in the name, as the village sits at 2000m, snow is still decent at this high altitude later on in the ski season and the ski area’s highest point is 3226m at the Aiguille Rouge. If you prefer the Austrian side of the Alps, the Kitzsteinhorn glacier in Kaprun provides skiing or snowboarding almost all year round. Even if it is warm in the valley there will still be snow at 3000m on the glacier.   View Last Minute Ski Offers and Easter Holiday Ski Deals

Skiers and snowboarders head for the hills as snow hits the UK

clock 31st December 2014 | comment1 Comments
What did you get up to after Christmas? Whilst some were polishing off the turkey leftovers and watching a festive flick on the telebox, others were shredding the gnar in the UK countryside. Parts of the north and midlands received up to 11cm of snow from Boxing Day 2014 which allowed keen skiers and snowboarders to head to the hills for some fresh powder turns. Check out these awesome photos of backcountry riding, UK style!

As companies aim to fill as much accommodation as possible, you will find cheap deals and offers for this time of year. Conditions are normally excellent at this time of year as January tends to be the coldest month of winter, plus one of the snowiest.
