Spring is definitely visible on the slopes and naturally it’s the higher resorts offering the best conditions in the Alps at the moment, including Tignes (100-160cm), Val d’Isere (99-160cm)and Val Thorens (115-200cm), Avoriaz (130-280cm) in France; Obergurgl-Hochgrugl (25-159cm) in Austria; and Zermatt (0-240cm) and Saas-Fee (66-305cm) in Switzerland. And thanks to the recent heavy snowfalls of nearly a metre, the Italian/French Milky Way (140-180cm) ski resorts of Sestriere, Sauze d’Oulx, Claviere and Montgenevre are currently offering fantastic conditions.
