Warm sunny days, empty slopes and great quality of snow - is this even real? Spring skiing is definitely something to experience once in your life. In Europe, the Spring season starts end of March until the end of May. But this doesn’t mean the ski season is over, you can still enjoy sliding down the mountains in May and most of April. Some of our resorts even close in early May depending on the season. With more space to have fun, great conditions, and more time to enjoy the activities - this is your opportunity to enjoy a different kind of snow experience.

Take in the best of the spring light

Spring is the ideal period to enjoy the mountains with longer days, sometimes up to 12 hours of daylight. From sunrise around 6:30am to sunset around 7:00pm, you'll have plenty of time to enjoy world-class slopes.

Longer days also mean more time to enjoy the all-inclusive offer at Club Med ski resorts: ski and snowboard all day long, try non-ski activities from snowshoe walking and sledding, to après-ski treats including hot tubs, saunas or outdoor heated swimming pools.

Milder and less icy temperatures

The warmer weather allows you to practice activities with temperatures above 0 at this time of the year. The average temperature at Les Arcs, just as an example is approximately around 5 degrees.

Why not use this as an opportunity to enjoy unique outdoor activities? There's nothing quite like snowshoe walking or sledding on the French slopes, horseback riding through the snow-sprinkled trees or ice fishing in Japan, paragliding or dog-sledding in Italy.

Less crowded mountains

Travel after the major European school holidays, and the mountain is all yours. Discover the domain and its charming surroundings with privileged conditions.

It’s ideal for beginners wanting to learn without the crowds as well as for intermediate and advanced skiers and snowboarders - so much fun and almost no waiting time at the chair lift.

Plus, less people around also mean you might even be able to get a more intimate size or reduced group lessons - everyone is winning!

Greater value packages

Another great advantage on going spring skiing is that you can also get better deal. Stay duration might be more flexible and special spring prices from flights to accommodation might make it easier to finally book that snow holiday you've been dreaming about.

Those in-the-know have figured out that less people also mean even more time to indulge in the all-inclusive package offers. Because we know the best part of a ski holiday is not just about the skiing...
