Dates to avoid skiing in Europe April 2023

The Easter school holidays take up a solid 2 weeks of the late ski season. This year falling across the first 2 weeks of April.

Of course, some of us can't avoid these dates through necessity.

Solo skiers self building their holiday can travel off peak (aka. not Saturday or Sunday) for some smoother sailing, of all the times, it will be quicker if you can find a train connection to resort.

As with all peak weeks, accommodation is going to be slim pickings due to families booking seasons in advance, especially the closer to the time you're going to look.

Accommodation options that often don't attract kids is a good bet. Especially for solos this includes Hostels.

Don't be put off by backpackers hostels of old, there's plenty of amazing options in mountain towns that have been upgraded to fit the nomad generation.

Late season also means many fewer areas that will have optimal snow conditions as well as be open. You want to aim high, a sure bet are resorts with Glaciers.

Zermatt The swiss maintain a tip-top range of Hostels, one of which is in the 365 day a year ski resort that is Zermatt.

If there's one thing you can expect from the Swiss it's efficiency, cleanliness and good service.
