Ski till May 4th?

Hello!

Need advice. Are lifts open till May 4th? No/ some/ few? Anything suitable for not experienced skiers? Would you recommend spending 5 days in VT from 29th of Apr?

Thanks a lot!

usually no, but the season can be extended in "snow years" like this year. so if you are being sold a week then i would say the lifts are staying open longer (i work in a number of other resorts (as a child carer) and its been said for a while that many will stay open into May, so seems plausible).

val tho more than the others, as its one of the highest resorts and therefore will have the most snow for longest.

expect sunshine, however, which can turn the istes slushy by the afternoon.

its a great resort and if you really want to squeeze a last ski trip in, its the most likely to have good snow

On their website they indicate they will be staying open until May 12 this year.

If you don't mind being surrounded by Dutch people cause that week is Dutch week. Not the entire 3v is open, only Valtho itself and Orelles

Hi! We don't mind Dutch for sure :), but we've finally chosen Val D'Isere instead

Simone,

after Val Thorens, what other resorts would you rate as generally giving you a good chance of good skiing in mid-April?

many thanks
