Epic Easter On The Cards

Epic Easter On The Cards

As Easter weekend approaches the epic conditions across the Alps continue to improve. It's the last week in March and the already amazing snow is getting better — yes better!

I may be the snowman, but even I can't remember a winter where the slopes were in such great shape for an entire season and where epic conditions only seem to get better and better as spring approaches. With all this snow, the seasonal Easter egg hunt on Sunday may require a shovel, probe and transceiver.

France is, well, covered in snow. Not just a little bit of snow, but huge amounts of the stuff. With the Easter Bunny due to bring clouds filled with fluffy white powder, as opposed to baskets of chocolate eggs, the holiday skiing is going to be fantastic.

  • Alpe d'Huez 23cm
  • Avoriaz 10cm
  • La Plagne 21cm
  • Les Arcs 22cm
  • Les Deux Alpes 27cm
  • Meribel 17cm
  • Morzine 9cm
  • Tignes 25cm
  • Val d'Isere 27cm
  • Val Thorens 20cm

Switzerland is again boasting incredible conditions over the school holidays. Many resorts can still boast a base of 2m — good luck finding your Easter eggs in that — and with up to 30cm forecast by the weekend, it's only going to get better.

  • Crans Montana 15cm
  • Davos 14cm
  • Grimentz 24cm
  • Nendaz 18cm
  • Saas Fee 32cm
  • St. Moritz 22cm
  • Verbier 19cm
  • Wengen 16cm
  • Zermatt 32cm
  • Zinal 26cm

Italy will be having a Good Friday in more than one sense as around 15cm of snow is forecast in one day alone. With a dusting of snow all week, mixed with sunshine, Friday will be a good day to re-charge your batteries with a few hot-crossed buns, before partaking in an epic powder day on Saturday.

  • Arabba 19cm
  • Bardonecchia 21cm
  • Cervinia 29cm
  • La Thuile 21cm
  • Livigno 27cm
  • Macugnaga 36cm
  • Passo Tonale 33cm
  • Sauze d'Oulx 20cm
  • Selva 12cm
  • Sestriere 20cm

Austria is often seen as the lower of Europe's top skiing destinations and therefore people expect less snow at this time of year. Well, you'd be pretty mistaken to think that, especially this year. The next few days up to 24cm of snow is forecast and conditions for Easter weekend are looking eggceptional.

  • Fiss 24cm
  • Ischgl 16cm
  • Kuhtai 14cmcm
  • Lech 11cm
  • Mayrhofen 6cm
  • Obergurgl 16cm
  • Serfaus 22cm
  • Solden 18cm
  • St. Anton 15cm
  • Zell am See 7cm

The Alps are looking amazing, the pistes perfect, the backcounty brilliant and all in time for the holiday period. Now, where did I put my skies under all this snow?
