The sun has been shining brightly across the Alps this week and, while some resorts have already closed, there’s still good skiing to be had at higher resorts and glaciers. The best skiing can be found in the morning when pistes are at their firmest. If you’re planning a last-minute spring ski trip, consider a glacial resort or Bulgaria which is experiencing some excellent late-season snow.
