Easter in the Alps
Easter is a great time to visit the Alps, with children off school and the opportunity for some late-season skiing fun. If you’re thinking of a 2023 Easter break in the Alps, it’s time to get your skates (or should that be skis?) on.
If you’re travelling at Easter there’s a good chance you’re travelling as a family - and what better time of year to enjoy the Alps? With most resorts offering excellent facilities for children of all ages, you’ll find that the whole family can enjoy a trip to remember. New skiers will find excellent ski schools in most resorts, while high quality childcare is easy to access for those too small to hit the slopes.
In the French Alps you may find some familiar Easter traditions including Easter eggs as well as some more unique traditions. In many regions of France, children believe that Easter eggs are brought by the Easter bells instead of the Easter bunny. If you’re travelling with children, an Easter egg hunt in the snow could offer the perfect chance to make special family memories together.
Of course there’s some variation in skiing seasons across the Alps, but in much of the region there’s still plenty of skiing to be done throughout March and April, with Val D’Isere and Tignes amongst the best options. Experts suggest looking for resorts with plenty of north facing terrain and terrain above 2,500km. Val D’Isere and Tignes are almost 60% above 2,500m, so they’re a pretty good bet for snow later in the season.
And there are some unique benefits to skiing later in the season too. Skiing at Easter means that you can enjoy the longer days of the spring months, and get more time on the slopes than you might earlier in the year.
