Easter ski holidays in the French Alps are a well-kept secret. Take advantage of this late ski opportunity to introduce your little ones to the snow — or to simply enjoy some spring skiing without the crowds.
Easter for beginners
We can't guarantee the weather, but Easter is usually an excellent time to come skiing, with a good chance of sun and snow. Longer, sunny days and soft, forgiving snow provide the perfect conditions for young children and beginners to learn to ski. In Les Gets, you'll find dedicated areas for beginners to learn to ski, with a choice of ski school options.
With the sun still shining after the lifts have closed, there's plenty of time to head to town where you'll find a large outdoor ice rink, shops selling traditional Savoyard goods and plenty of restaurants and bars to enjoy before heading back to the chalet to hide easter eggs in the snow or garden!
Easter for families
If your kids already know how to ski, the ski resort of Les Gets offers tree-lined ski runs, delicious mountain restaurants for your lunchtime stop, and challenging pistes for experienced skiers too. From the top of some peaks, you can even spot Mont Blanc!
After a day on the slopes, head back to your chalet for a soothing rest in your hot tub or ski home to your chalet by the Mont Chèry lift (take a look at our full range of luxury options to find the perfect self-catered accommodation to suit your requirements).
Easter for everyone
Les Gets ski resort is connected to the massive Portes du Soleil ski area, offering something for everyone. There are snow parks, including the famed 'The Stash' with its natural obstacles and challenges that teenagers and adults will love, as well as plenty of off-piste areas for powder lovers.
The most daring of skiers might like to try the Swiss Wall, which sits on the Swiss border, but be aware that this is for advanced skiers only. Alternatively, take the easier pistes to Châtel, which is also in Swizterland, but leave enough time to take the lifts back to Avoriaz and beyond so you're not stuck in Switzerland at the end of the day.
For a less physical day, start your après ski early at one of the on-piste bars, such as La Folie Douce in Avoriaz. Just make sure you can get back to Les Gets without falling over too much!
