We've plenty of options for where to ski in Easter, depending on what you want from your holiday. For an Easter ski holiday in Europe, take your pick from Austria, France or Switzerland.
Here are just a few of our best recommendations in Europe for you to consider:
Easter skiing holidays are always a firm favourite with families, and to find out more about our family specific Easter Skiing offers, including free places for children, please see our family skiing page.
The Paradiski area comprising the ski holiday resorts of Les Arcs and La Plagne has always been a firm favourite with families and with their north-facing slopes and high resorts they make the perfect destination for an Easter ski holiday. The Easter Bunny also makes a special stop in Arc 1950 to hide Easter eggs around the village for children and adults alike to find.
But Easter doesn’t have to be all about the kids this year! The whole family can make the most of the celebrations and enjoy a ski break during the annual celebration. To make the most of the fabulous spring conditions, head to Val Thorens or Tignes where the extra altitude makes for two of the longest seasons in Europe, so you can ski to your heart’s content..
It’s important to keep the mystery of Easter alive while you’re away from home, so we’ve got something extra special planned which is sure to be a hit with all the family.
Children aged 2-11 can enjoy their very own Easter egg hunt on all chalet holidays during selected dates at Easter! When the little ones are off at ski school, the Easter bunny is going to take time off from the slopes to visit your chalet and leave chocolatey treats for the little ones (and maybe some of the big ones) to find.
