Try Tignes until May

Tignes in France boasts one of the longest seasons in the Alps, keeping its lifts turning until the first week in May and then reopening for summer sports a few weeks later.

To take advantage of the last week of the main season and still good snow conditions, the resort is offering a special package that includes accommodation and a lift pass for 175 euros – less than the normal price of a six-day ticket alone. The deal also includes entry to the resort’s smart swimming complex, opened a couple of season’s ago. The Grand Motte slopes are reliably snow-sure too, as well as extensive for a glacier area, so there’s plenty to occupy a late weekend (or Bank Holiday) break.

The slopes have enjoyed another dusting of fresh snow at the weekend, with further showers expected during Tuesday and Wednesday. That’s good news for refreshing the upper slopes. It is cooler up there again too this week (minus 15 on the glacier in Monday’s cloudier skies)
