As the weather starts to warm up, the sunshine can be a welcome sight - but unfortunately, it also means that the amount of snow at many of our favourite resorts will start to disappear.
While the melting snow and the approaching end of the ski season can be disappointing, the good news is that there are several spots across the Alps where you can find late-season snow. In fact, if you head high enough into the mountains, you can find skiing pretty much year-round. You just need to know where to look.
Where to enjoy some 'me-time' in Morzine and Les Gets
Snow sports holidays are often about adventure and adrenaline - but they can also be a great chance for you to unwind. So, if you're looking for a bit of relaxation and pampering during your next getaway, be sure to look for a winter holiday destination that includes plenty places where you can feel pampered in luxurious surroundings.
There's more than skiing and snowboarding in La Plagne
La Plagne, in the French Alps, is the world's most popular ski resort, seeing some 2.5 million visitors every year. If you're visiting in the winter, you'll definitely want to find cheap ski or snowboard hire so you can enjoy some time swishing down the mountain.
Enjoy the view from Top Mountain Star
There's little doubt that the Alps offer some pretty impressive views. With towering peaks covered in snow and juxtaposed against a bright blue sky, it's hard to imagine a more breathtaking sight. You can take in the view while swishing down a mountain, or riding a chairlift or gondola, and there are also plenty of look-out spots at restaurants, station terraces and even hotel rooms.
