6 Reasons to book an Easter ski holiday with the family

From longer days to quieter slopes, there are plenty of reasons to book a family Easter ski holiday. Read on to find out why skiing at Easter can be one of the best times of year to hit the slopes and do it in style with Mark Warner.

Snow is guaranteed at high-altitude resorts Summer 2024

At 2,100 metres, Mark Warner’s high-altitude Tignes Resort is ideal for family skiing at Easter — and not just as a way to burn off all that Easter chocolate! Even as the season warms up, you’re guaranteed snow at that height as snow continues to fall at that higher altitude than further down the mountain.

With several months of snowfall in the bank, the pistes will be firm underneath and soft on top, creating ideal conditions for skiing. Our family-friendly Chalet Hotel L'Ecrin Resort is situated on the outskirts of the beautiful village Tignes Val Claret, and only a short walk to the 5 main lifts —  letting you take to the slopes in no time.

Skiing in the sunshine

A great advantage of taking the March and April ski holidays is the sunshine! At this time of year, you’ll miss the freezing weather of the winter season, replaced by skiing in the new sun of spring.

There’s also less risk of blizzards so you can save space in your suitcase and pack fewer layers! Take your time and enjoy the beautiful mountainous surroundings no matter what time of day you want to hit the slopes without the worry of being too cold.

Longer days

Skiing in March and April has the other great advantage of longer days! That means you get to spend more time on the slopes skiing, admiring the scenery or taking part in après-ski activities.

Avoid the crowds

Skiing at Easter usually means the slopes are less crowded than the rest of the season. In other words,  shorter lift queues equals more time on the slopes. If you are travelling with a beginner skier or children, having fewer people around will give them the space to learn how to ski without being overwhelmed.

When you want to take a break from your snowy adventures, you’ll also find that mountain restaurants are quieter. Enjoy a more leisurely lunch and take in the beautiful snow-capped mountains and blue skies outside on the restaurant terraces.

Save money on Easter ski holidays

Easter skiing tends to be less expensive than other school holidays — especially if you go in the second week of the Easter holidays. Even though skiing at Christmas, New Year or February half-term is usually the norm, it’s often busier, and more expensive. Plus, you don’t get to take advantage of longer, sunnier days.

Instead, make the most of last-minute Easter ski deals to save hundreds of pounds on your flights and accommodation. You may even save on lift passes and equipment rental if you time your booking right.

Family memories to last a lifetime

The most important reason to book a family Easter ski holiday is to make memories with your children and loved ones that will last a lifetime. From completing their first slope to enjoying a warm hot chocolate by the fire, spending quality time with family and friends is one of the greatest gifts in the world.

Keep your kids active over the Easter holidays with various family après ski and outdoor activities including Easter festivities and end-of-season celebrations with music and entertainment for all ages. Join us and let Mark Warner take care of everything you need for a perfect Easter ski holiday.
