Spring skiing and cosy chalets make a cracking combo: enjoy the sun on the slopes, then return to your chalet for hearty food and comfy surrounds once the evening chill sets in. Here are some of Maddogski’s picks from SNO for March and April.

Stay in Chalet La Varappe and come home to classic English furnishings, bursting bookcases, a flickering fire, hot tub, steam room and tv & games room. Positioned in the centre of Meribel, this luxurious catered chalet sleeps 10 to 12 and a 7-night stay costs £1,290 per person starting on 22 March.


In Morzine’s Les Nants area, Chalet de Mes Reves sleeps 8 to 10 guests and has a hot tub, log fire, slippers for guests and boot warmers for maximum cosiness. With chalet catering included, £813 per person covers a 7 night stay from 12 April.


In a quiet nook of Verbier, the freestanding Chalet Katarina sleeps 10 to 12 people. Enjoy a south facing balcony looking over the village, comfortable contemporary furnishings and a gourmet dining and a driver service included with your stay. Pay £766 per person for 7 nights departing 11 April.
