We take a look at why Easter ski holidays are on the rise with families.
With many ski holidays/resorts oversubscribed in the February half term and in the light of the clampdown on term-time getaways, increasing numbers of families are looking to take their ski holiday at Easter.
It’s not all about saving money and avoiding the crowds, either – although the latter is a consideration for those learning to ski, for whom uncrowded slopes are a bonus. The mountain restaurants will be less busy too, so you take the time to enjoy a long leisurely lunch.
Other reasons to favour Easter are the generally milder weather (better for those with very young kids – and you might even get a bit of a tan!), and longer, lighter evenings, meaning that ski lifts stay open later and there’s more time for family après ski and outdoor activities, and more scope for late-season music festivals and other events.
