Question:
Where is best for my late-season snow fix?
Answer:

As with skiing before Christmas, the choice of resort for Easter skiing is more important than in the middle of the winter. Heading high is once again the best bet, but be sure to look at more than just the top altitude of the resort. For example, Ischgl may only top out at 2,800m but almost every slope sits above 2,000m – ensuring great snow coverage often into May. Ischgl also hosts a legendary closing concert at Idalp, where 20,000 people descend on the mountain to watch acts such as Elton John and The Killers.

Another great option is Cervinia on the Italian side of the Matterhorn and linked to Zermatt. With slopes extending to 3,899m and a resort altitude of 2,050m good snow is guaranteed right through into May. Springtime also brings a much higher chance of clear and sunny weather – perfect for the wide-open and treeless slopes above Plan Maison and on the Theodulgletscher glacier.
