|I’m heading off to Chamonix for the long Easter weekend for my final ski of the season. Easter is always a really lovely time to go — it’s warm, it can be beautifully sunny and spring-like, and the days are longer so you can get more skiing in, as well as lengthy lunches on the sun terrace!|
Here are some last-minute offers to tempt you out to the mountains one final time before you hang up your ski boots.
Super-popular Ferme du Lac Vert in Morzine is now offering April 9th-16th at just £595 per person sharing, down from £1065. A couple with 1 children under 13 goes free if in the same room, or alternatively if 2 children, 2 for the price of 1 if they want their own room.
Zermatt is a fabulous place to go for spring skiing. It has a glacier so has guaranteed snow, and there are lots of deals on chalets for April. Sister chalets Heidi and Zermatt Lodge are now all 100CHF per person per day based on full occupancy, with flexible arrival dates until end of season with a minimum 3 nights stay. Other chalets also available.
Divine Chalet Des Drus, also in Chamonix, is now being offered for just €17,950 on a catered basis for the week from 9th April. This is a superb, knock-out chalet with state of the art interior design and top-level facilities. Get in touch if you would like to know more.
Designer Baita 1697 lodge in Italy (sleeps 12 + 6) is available from 9th April onwards for either a week, 10 days or two weeks. The usual price per week is €9800 for self-catered and €16,600 for catered. Now it is being offered at 30% off, so €7,840 self-catered and €11,620 for catered. They’ve just had another fresh dump of snow too!
Gorgeous sister chalets La Marquise and The North Face in Sainte Foy are both now reduced for w/c 8th April. La Marquise (sleeps 14), which comes with steam room, sauna, treatment room and balcony hot tub, is now just £790pp on a catered basis for that week, while The North Face (which sleeps 10, has a hot tub and is only 100m to the lifts) is just £650pp catered. Either can be booked by the room or on a whole chalet basis. If you book either, you also get a free 6-day lift pass for a child aged 7-12 when you buy a 6-day adult lift pass!
