The Ski and Snowboard Short Break Specialist


Easter Ski Holidays & Short Breaks – April 2020

Easter this season works well for short break ski holidays, with Easter Sunday falling on the 12th April.

With our 4-day Easter Ski Weekend running from Thursday 9th – Monday 13th April, you can use the Easter bank holidays to take a 4-day short ski break without having to take any time off work!

This Easter Ski Weekend is the final break of our winter 2019 / 2020 season.

Our resorts generally keep their snow well this far into the season due to their predominance of north and west facing aspects, and large amount of skiing above 1600m.

The 2020 Easter Ski Experience

The Easter Holidays are a great time to go skiing as the weather is warmer and the evenings lighter (so ski lifts are open later), yet there can still be lots of good snow conditions and its perfectly possibly to enjoy fresh powder in April.

Despite the warmer weather, blue skies and beautiful spring sunshine, the snow can remain in good shape, (particularly in the morning) due to a good base being laid down earlier in the season. As such, we would expect the majority of the resort to be open to the end of our season.

Our guests can enjoy fabulous spring skiing around Easter, whilst topping up their tans at the same time!

**FREE Group Ski Lessons for the Last 2 Breaks of the Season in Le Grand Bornand**!

We are offering **FREE Group Ski Lessons** in Le Grand Bornand for guests staying at the Aravis Lodge, Hotel les Glaieuls and Hotel la Pointe Percée on the following breaks in 2020:

Thursday 9th – Monday 13th April – 4-day weekend, with a 2-hour lesson on the Friday, Saturday, Sunday and Monday = 8 hours total

Who the free group ski lessons are for

They are for beginners and improvers only, with absolute beginners being given the priority, and they are subject to a minimum number of people signing up for them in order for these group lessons to go ahead.

Both adults and children aged 5 upwards are welcome, though you might not be in the same group together, depending on demand.

Beginners – For first time skiers or those who’ve just had a taster session at an indoor slope. Lessons will cover absolute basics, primarily on the nursery slopes to begin with, then progressing to green runs when you are ready.

Improvers – For skiers on their 2nd or 3rd holiday looking to ski more of the mountain. Lessons can cover a refresher on green runs, then moving onto blue runs, with the aim of improving your confidence with the snow plough, using drag lifts etc.


When the free group ski lessons will be

Lessons times will be between 09:00 – 11:00 and 11:00 – 13:00.

We cannot guarantee a particular timeslot ahead of time, and the exact times / instructor names will be confirmed when you arrive at your accommodation.

Availaibility is limited and these lessons will be offered on a first come, first served basis, so please double check availability with us before booking your holiday if these free group lessons are a big factor in your booking decision.

These breaks over Easter are the only time that group lessons are being offered this winter, but private lessons will be available to book through us for guests staying at the Aravis Lodge and other accommodations in Le Grand Bornand throughout the season.
