Where to go late April/early May?

 Poster: A snowHead

Hi,
I'm thinking of doing one more quick trip for 2-3 days around the end of April or 1st week of May and looking for suggestions. Maybe even a guide and do a tour for a 1/2 day just to get away from the lifts if possible.
It looks like Tignes and VT are good bets up to their closing dates on 6/5. Zermatt looks ok too but it seems like they close parts of their area so not as good an option.
How about Engelberg? It looks like they stay open late but I'm not sure how much of their terrain will stay open or is it just typically a surface lift and a few pistes up high? But the short transfer from Zurich is a plus.
Or maybe Grands Montets but it closes 1/5....
Any ideas appreciated.
Thanks a lot,
Marc

More than enough terrain in Engelberg to keep you happy.

Especially if you have a guide.

I had a couple of days there in mid-May a while back.

Mid-thigh powder, bluebird, deserted.

Believe the hype.

We've skied powder at altitude on about half of our 9 or 10 late April or early May trips to Tignes Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy

Regardless, always at least 50% of Espace Killy open at that time.

Next trip is from a week's time....

Engelberg would be good if the weather and conditions line up well for you. I skied great powder there in late April/May the last couple of years. There won't be much lift accessed terrain open (probably enough though), and there's lots more options if you're willing to hike - eg the Jochpass/Jochstock area will be closed but you could easily skin up there for some great lines. It's one of my favourite resorts in the Alps.

would be interested to hear how it goes. go there religiously every april (1st week). Every season i can remember that we skied that week its been good snow about 2500 m (plan maison basically) then progressively softer till its syrup at resort. This year though it was much better. I think the run to Valtournenche is already closed.

We have friends going to La Plagne/Paradiski next week. They go every year at this time and said they've never been skunked for snow.

Just noticed Obertauern in Austria is open to 1 May and currently has 180cm. Not bad!
