Ski operators have breathed a sigh of relief after heavy snowfall in the Alps, just in time for Easter.

The cold spell came after a largely warm and sunny March and will help extend the season to the end of the Easter school holidays. 

Temperatures dipped down below freezing in most areas late last week and over the weekend, with the cold weather expected to continue into this week.

“Everything is pointing in the right direction for a snowy white Easter in the Alps,” said Laura Hazell, Sales & Marketing Director for Skibeat, the Brighton-based catered chalet holiday specialist.

“Colder temperatures at the start of April and new snowfall have created excellent conditions for late season skiing.”

Hazell said the relaxing of entry conditions into France at the end of March will also boost Easter bookings. The changes mean even unvaccinated skiers can now travel to the Alps with just an LFT or PCR Covid test.

“For many, Easter 2022 is a return to near normality for winter sports lovers,” she added.

Skibeat still has chalet holidays available. On 9 April, there are flights available from Heathrow, Manchester and Gatwick with accommodation available in the French resorts of La Rosière, Plan Peisey (Les Arcs) and La Plagne.

On 16 April, holidays are available in La Plagne, La Rosiere, Val d’Isere and Val Thorens.

Meanwhile, Alpine Elements also has chalet holidays available in Tignes, La Plagne and Meribel.
