Christmas has come and gone and those January blues are setting in… Our favourite way to fight them? Look to the holidays ahead and schedule some bluebird skiing in the form of an Easter ski trip. Easter 2020 falls in the first half of April, which gives you a good scope of snow sure resorts to ski. MadDogSki.com has some wonderful holidays to consider, however you like to do spring skiing.
HOPPING ACROSS THE POND
Spend a week in Whistler Blackcomb, which has an average annual snowfall of 11.8m. Stay at the Coast Blackcomb Suites, where the outdoor pool and hot tubs will be a hoot in the springtime. A package for 7 nights with B&B Heathrow flights and airport transfers (departing on the 11 April 2020) costs £1,556pp. If you’re here as a family, don’t miss the annual Whistler Community Easter Egg Hunt!
SPRINGTIME IN STYLE
Though the Experimental Chalet Verbier only recently opened, it’s fast become one of the world’s trendiest, most instagrammable ski hotels. Stay for gourmet dining and some of the biggest parties in the mountains, courtesy of the legendary Farm Club. Then recover with the help of the hotel’s on-site spa… Seven-night trips start at £1,203pp, inclusive of half board and Gatwick flights and setting off on 13 April 2020.
Often you have to sacrifice alpine charm for a purpose-built resort with snow sure slopes as the warmer weather sets in. Not when it comes to Obergurgl which is Austria’s highest parish. Stay in the typically Tyrolean Hotel Wiesental, a 4-star in the village centre with a regional restaurant for Easter feasting and a south facing terrace that captures the best spring sunshine. For £1,209pp, you get a seven-night stay on a half board basis, Heathrow flights, airport transfers and 2 for 1 ski/board and boot hire – departing on 11 April 2020.
