It’s official… spring is here!
Spring is here. On Monday, the Vernal Equinox heralded the start of those few special weeks between the chill of winter and the close of the ski season, when you can enjoy superb skiing combined with warm sunny al fresco lunches.
It is also the perfect time to introduce your family to a skiing or boarding vacation as little ones don’t get as chilled as they might skiing in the depths of winter. Also, better still, the closer it gets to the end of the season, the lower the prices become as the resorts wind down and the snow starts to melt (though with this year’s phenomenal snowbase it’s going to take some time…)
2012 is set to be a superb year for spring skiing, so be sure to grab a spring skiing bargain before the season’s over. There are some amazing last-minute holiday offers for Easter around at the moment. Here are some of the best:
