Why go skiing in the spring?

Who dares say that skiing is only reserved for the winter period? True amateurs of winter sports know this – spring is one of the best seasons for going skiing. The good news is Village Montana establishments offer quality rentals at the foot of the slopes in Tignes, Val d’Isère and Val Thorens at this time of the year.

Spring time holiday rentals: the ideal conditions for skiing

During spring, all the conditions unite to help you make the most of your ski holiday. As if everything has been thought of to make skiing and time spent in the mountains truly pleasurable.

Enjoy long sunny days out on the slopes

Thanks to the mild climate, the days are longer, the weather warmer with more sunshine in the spring than in winter. You can get on the slopes at your own rhythm and no longer need to avoid the places with little or no sunlight after 15.30. It is the ideal time to enjoy the ski area with ease, without fear of catching cold or slipping on ice.

Ideal snow quality

Even if the bottom of the slopes sometimes become a little too soft by the end of the day, snow quality does stay optimal for most of the resort. This is certainly true for Tignes, Val Thorens and Val d’Isère resorts, which lie in exceptional locations, above 2000m altitude. The snow conditions in spring are also ideal for children and toddlers who are learning to ski.

Discovering new activities: freeride, ski trekking… 

At the start of spring, freeride fans can be sure of snow quality that is particularly ideal for their activity. The easier snow conditions are also ideal for discovering new snow sports such as ski trekking, Splitboard and snowshoeing. 

Slopes are less crowded and less expensive

Though spring time skiing is popular, resorts at higher altitudes are less crowed than during winter. This is an undeniable bonus for making the most of the domain, being able to ski as you please and use the ski lifts in the best conditions. What’s more, Village Montana chalets, residences and hotels are all located at the foot of the slopes.

Ski rentals and passes at more affordable prices

During spring, ski passes are also more attractive in terms of price. A resort such as Tignes offers free access to the slopes for children under age 13. For your spring holidays, Village Montana also offers more competitive prices. You will also find regular special offers. 

Entertainment for all the family in the mountains during spring

There may be fewer visitors to the resorts during spring but that doesn’t mean that they are deserted, quite the contrary, in fact! Be it in Tignes, Val d’Isère or Val Thorens, the spring season offers a warm, relaxed and often, festive ambience. 
After a day out on the slopes, you will be able to continue your holiday activities and spend unforgettable evenings with friends and family. For example, Val Thorens offers the famous Apotheose Days Pass, which gives you access to shows during the weekend and you can enjoy the Val’Tho festival organized each year. As for Tignes, the resort organizes the renowned Francofolies, welcoming the best DJs around, while Val d’Isère offers the “Spring ski” program.
With all these advantages, don’t hesitate to book your Village Montana accommodation for a weekend or a week in spring time! Our high-end establishments offer a range of chalet rentals, holiday residences, as well as hotel suites at the foot of the slopes in Tignes, Val d’Isère and Val Thorens.
