Great skiing and sunbathing

The best thing about this time of year is that you get a mix of snow and milder temperatures. In this season, you can really make the most of the restaurant terraces and spend the afternoon in a deckchair 😎

You can wander around to your heart’s content, enjoying the smell of crêpes that fills the air. To take a break you’ll be spoilt for choice between the mountain restaurants and the terraces in the resort. See the winter restaurants

Spring snow, ideal for beginners

As the professionals in the sector will tell you, spring is a particularly good time for beginners to go skiing. The snow is more compact and damp, which makes it seem easier to ski on.

With mild temperatures, sunshine galore and just the right snow, this is also a good time for children to try their first skiing experience 😊🎿

Perfect timing

Just after the winter half-term holidays is the ideal time to come! There are fewer people in the resort and therefore shorter queues at the ski lifts. The sun sets later and you can make the most of the longer days. You can even find some great deals on accommodation at very attractive prices.

As an added bonus, lift passes are cheaper during the very last week of the season. View lift passes

Yogiski, an encounter with Mother Nature

Besides skiing, a host of other activities await you. From 11th to 15th April, for instance, the Yogiski festival invites you all week long to give yoga and relaxation a try. A number of workshops are on offer for both novices and improvers, all in a magical setting.

March and April are also good months for exploring the mountains on foot at your own pace. There are several routes, of a few kilometres or longer distances, to take you up into the mountains for some beautiful photos.

Suggestion: in the company of a guide you can go on beautiful routes in search of the local flora and fauna.

And if that’s not enough, don’t hesitate to check out our full list of activities other than skiing, to find your own route to happiness 🏀🐕🏓
