Six Reasons Why Easter Ski Holidays in Sainte Foy are the Best!
Skiing as a family is a great activity that everyone can enjoy together, no matter if your kids are 4 or 24 years old! Unlike the February half term week, you have a few Easter weeks to choose from depending on your school holiday dates.
With the calmer temperatures, sunnier days, lazy lunches with a glass of rosé, plenty of in-resort activities and last minute holiday deals – there are so many reasons why we love Easter Skiing in Sainte Foy…
Here are just a few reasons why you simply can’t pass up the opportunity to come and stay with us this Easter!
1. Fantastic Easter Deals
There are some fantastic deals to be snapped up in March and April. Along with amazing offers on catered and self-catered accommodation, Premiere Neige guests can benefit from BOGOF family lift passes and a free childcare place in our popular Snow Cub Creche – There really is something to suit every budget and our friendly sales team are on hand to help find the best fit for you!
2. Lots to Do
As the sun comes out, so do the activities! From Easter egg hunts for the children to skiing, paret & sledging contests for the more competitive; Sainte Foy really does have it all! Did we mention that you can enjoy live music & start off your après in the sunshine too!?
3. Plenty of Snow
I know what you’re thinking, Easter is quite late in the season and maybe there won’t be any snow. Think again, with the recent investments in snow making its unlikely that you’ll find ‘no snow’. Sainte Foy is perfectly positioned with a north facing aspect meaning the snow on the on the slopes stays colder for longer.
Easter is always a fantastic time to ski however, this year is like no other! With record breaking snowfalls and more snow on the way, we have no doubt that the snow conditions will be amazing on and off the piste!
4. Glorious sunshine and warmer temperatures
The relaxed atmosphere on the slopes is amazing in the warmer months. Fewer layers are required to handle the sub zero temperatures there’s also the chance to really work on those goggle tans!
Families with young children can also feel more relaxed about being up in the mountains for longer without the cold setting in. There’s no need to hurry them back to the cozy chalet as soon as ski school has finished. Instead, you can enjoy hours of fun sledging into the evening….
5. Quieter Slopes
The biggest selling point for Sainte Foy is that we always have quiet slopes even in the peak weeks!
The wide and tree lined runs only become even more silent in the weeks approaching the end of the season. You can admire breathtaking views along the way and you’ll never have to queue for a chair lift!
There’s also far more choice in terms of property availability and popular services such as ski lessons, transfers & childcare.
6. Hassle-free Travel
If you are planning to drive all the way to resort or hire a car from the airport, you can feel more relaxed about the conditions that will meet you along the way. Although it is still important to be prepared, the chance of becoming stuck half way up the mountain are less likely!
Alternatively if you’d prefer to take the stress out of driving completely, you can book one of our Premiere Neige private or shared transfers. Your driver will collect you from any of the surrounding airports or train station and drop you right outside your chalet door!
