The 3 best ski resorts in the French Alps for spring skiing in April
The ski resorts exude a different sort of energy in April in France.
Gone is the biting cold of earlier in the season, the days are longer, the snow pack is at its highest and the whole atmosphere of the resort has changed.
Spring has sprung! It is the time of music festivals, snow riding competitions, end of season festivities, parties and long lazy lunches on sunny decks.
You may also be lucky enough to catch a spring snowfall. And don’t forget, there are some great spring skiing deals to be had!
The Tignes area is a very dependable location for some late season skiing. The Grand Motte glacier at 3,456m, is the starting point for both long groomed runs and off-piste skiing.
With direct access from the funicular station in Val Claret you can be on the glacier in less than 10 minutes. Coupled with the reputation of the area for its night life, there will be plenty of après skiing as well.
Val Thorens village is located in a natural cirque at 2,300m. With skiing up to 3,220m it has one of the longest ski seasons in the French Alps with the resort open until May.
Aside from the many other activities available in Val Thorens, the 3 Vallees Enduro which is held in April is the largest amateur skier gathering in the world with competitions for snowboards, skis or telemark skis.
Après ski is vibrant whether you take on the Folie Douce dance floor or the relaxed après ski bar at the Altapura Ski Bar. There are water jumps, street art, culinary experiences…
In Les Arcs choose from the list of activities throughout April. Ski in the morning and enjoy the groomed runs, take a guide and explore the off-piste or engage in the many fun activities; snow golf, ski-bike relays, visit the ‘Mille 8’, a unique alpine playground area or simply indulge in some après ski!
