The Benefits of March Ski Breaks

March can be one of the best times of year to head off on a short ski break. Whether it’s a weekend or midweek, here are 6 great reasons why:

More sun

Skiing in March

Come March we start to see the back of the bitterly cold conditions January and February can bring. The sun starts to come out more regularly, and that mid morning coffee stop often turns into a longer-than-planned sun bathing session.

Good snow

Typically March is one of the snowiest months in the French Alps. While many people ski in high resorts during March and April, those in the know will be enjoying the quieter slopes and beautiful powder conditions often seen in La Clusaz, Grand Bornand and Samoens. Keep an eye on our snow reports for the last minute snow conditions.

Longer days skiing in March

With the ski lifts open until later in the day, you will get more value from your lift pass (included in the price), and still have time for a few sunny après ski drinks in one of the many bars and cafes in the villages with outside seating.

Jess Skiing in MarchQuieter slopes

With the half term school holidays in February out the way, and Easter falling in early April, March is a delightfully quiet time in resort. You will often have whole runs for yourself, and we promise that is not an exaggeration. This photo of Jess skiing was taken in March for example.

Cheaper flights

Outside the school holidays flights are much more reasonable. At the time of writing March is the cheapest month of the year on Easyjet for flights from London to Geneva (from just £17.99). We will pick you up from there for the short transfer back to the resort.

More likely to see chamois and marmots!

That’s right, the elusive Chamois (wild mountain goats) and marmots (large squirrel like animals) start to come out from their winter hiding spots and make more of an appearance around the valleys in March. Should you be lucky enough to grab a photo, it will be one that most of your friends don’t have in their ski holiday album!
