#5 - Maximum slope-time, minimum wait-time
For any passionate skier and snowboarder – great conditions and maximising time on the slopes is super important. With fast-speed gondolas designed to deal with crowds and all weather conditions, queuing time is reduced and you can get to the top in no time. Qualified instructors will also give any beginner, intermediate or advanced snow sport lover an amazing experience - they’re your key to the mountain!
#6 - Experience the thrills of spring skiing
Have you ever heard of spring skiing? From the end of March till the end of April – you can still ski in many of our resorts and experience beautiful weather with great snow conditions, minus the crowds!
Bonus: We recently launched flexible stays in our European snow resorts for 2020 departures. This means you can just pop in our resorts for just a few days of snow experience even if part of a bigger European trip! No excuses to not book that dream European ski holiday.
