Log in to snowHeads to make it MUCH better! Registration's totally free, of course, and makes snowHeads easier to use and to understand, gives better searching, filtering etc. as well as access to 'members only' forums, discounts and deals that U don't even know exist as a 'guest' user. (btw. 50,000+ snowHeads already know all this, making snowHeads the biggest, most active community of snow-heads in the UK, so you'll be in good company)..... When you register, you get our free weekly(-ish) snow report by email. It's rather good and not made up by tourist offices (or people that love the tourist office and want to marry it either)... We don't share your email address with anyone and we never send out any of those cheesy 'message from our partners' emails either. Anyway, snowHeads really is MUCH better when you're logged in - not least because you get to post your own messages complaining about things that annoy you like perhaps this banner which, incidentally, disappears when you log in :-)

I have never been that late in the season and wonder if it is a good idea. Any thoughts?

Its a great time to ski. Aim high and you will have a fantastic time. We usually ski Val Thorens in the first week of May and it's my favourite time to ski.

We have also skied in Espace Killy then and loved that as well Very Happy Very Happy

Cervinia - year round skiing, guaranteed snow, huge ski area, great food & wine, and fabulous looking women.

@tonyfo, We go to Sass Fee every spring. Glorious, and always good conditions on the glacier. We often get quite big dumps around that time, have had some of the best off-piste mid to late April.

This place looks terrific but I can not get to Turn in April - Ryanair stops flying there at the end of March. On my list for the next season.

I found flights to Geneva on the other hand

Where in the UK are you? BA fly to Turin pretty much year round, and you can take your Skis with you for no extra cost! We’re flying in March for £100pp including taking skis, the fees for taking skis with Ryanair are more than that! Wherever possible, I avoid Ryanair/easyJet, I just hate their business model.

I am in Bristol and GVA is easily accessible for me from here - but my understanding is that the shuttle service to Val D'Isere is very patch this late in the season.

Is Chamonix a safer bet in that sense?

I am in Cardiff and usually fly out of Bristol - but can go to Heathrow too. How is the commute from Turin to Cervinia in April?

I'm off to Saas Fee (again) on April 18. Usually go there or Engelberg for a late season blast.

Don't need to worry about transfers as both resorts served by frequent and regular rail or rail/bus links.

Only the Balme sector of La Clusaz will be open for the last 2 weeks of April.

Fine for an afternoon or day, but not any longer.

Journey from Turin to Cervinia is fine, I would say Turin is my least favourite city to drive through, but luckily to get from the airport to the slopes you use the ring road, with the exception of the locals driving like lunatics, the drive is perfectly fine, April will likely be quiet but still good snow! Milan is also another option, both on my opinion are easy drives, Turin takes 90 minutes, Milan malpensa is about 2 hours, I would personally avoid Geneva as the my blanc tunnel is extortionate, unless there’s a load of you in one car and you are splitting the cost.

They run later from than over New Year, but not much later. Most skiers pack up earlier due to the snow softening. It may be better if the lifts opened earlier - say 8:30

BA may fly to Turin year round but they only operate from London - not much use to most of us. However, other airlines such as KLM and Lufthansa fly from most of the UK to Turin

What's the snow normally like at that time of year in Val Thorens? Not been able to get away this year yet due to lockdowns and work, so considering a May trip this year.
