When is Easter 2018?

Good Friday falls on 30th March.

Easter Sunday is 1st April.

School holidays for much of England are 30th March 2018 - 13th April 2018.

So, if you're avoiding these school holiday dates, booking a holiday departing on 24th March will mean quieter slopes.

And you only need to take four days off from work, the Friday being a bank holiday.

Looks like Easter to meLooks like Easter to me













As the sun comes out, some of us (fools!) tend to veer away from spring ski trips and think beach or city break.

But here's why we should squeeze in one more ski before the season is out...

Longer days mean more skiing.

Daylight hours are longer too, so you could have a relaxed lunch and ski for that little bit longer.

The slopes are often empty compared with peak winter dates such as February half-term

Lower prices

Easter is not a peak season so prices tend to be lower, especially when compared to the other school holiday periods of Christmas and half term.

Some resorts also drop their lift pass prices for the ski weeks around Easter.

Don't forget the end-of-season sales.

Thinking ahead to next winter; New winter, new ski outfit...

Sun & bluebird days

Sun makes us happy. Fact.

And when it's warmer and the snow and wind are kinder it makes it easier to learn: especially for children.

Al fresco lunches

The famous spring skiing long lunches.

Don your sunnies and T-shirt at lunchtime, splash on the the factor 50, and bask...

Mountain vistas from a sunny terrace; it's the second perfect way to take in the mountains.

And then there are picnic lunches; find a quiet spot to enjoy that baguette.

Some great peace and a way to save some money.

Ski Conditions

This year the snow has been phenomenal; it will quite possibly mean a fantastic Easter for conditions.

Skiing into Spring

And the specialist's advice on how to organise and book your group ski trip with as little stress and hassle as possible:

How To Do A Group Ski Trip

See the resorts that one of our partners, Skiworld, has selected for the best late-season conditions - resorts that'll really keep those mega dumps from this season.

SkiworldLet's look at those deals and this could be you!
















Val Thorens - Europe's highest resort town at 2,300m means it's snow-sure.

You'll also have the whole 600km of the Les3Vallees ski area on your doorstep.

Zermatt - Zermatt boasts Europe's highest lifts, stretching up to a dizzying 3,820m, and has glacier to ski on.

This means ski access to high-up snow is better than anywhere else in Europe

Tignes & Val d'Isere - "Where better to soak up some sun than on the terrace of one of the many bars and restaurants which are on your doorstep in the Espace Killy," Skiworld quotes.

Good skiing and a great Spring atmosphere = a good time.
