Our top 5 luxury snow-safe resorts in the Alps
France: Val d’Isère
With record-breaking snowfalls in the French Alps, you can bet that if anything is going to be nice, it will be at the Espace Killy ski region (of which Tignes – see below – is also a part). Because of their elevation and the ease of each having its own glacier, these two locations are frequently the last to close in the season, with summer skiing focusing on the Grande Motte glacier.
Tignes has a well-deserved reputation as a spring and late-season skiing destination, with lifts reaching 3456 m (the Grande Motte cable car) and extending down to 1550 m (Brévières hamlet). Terrain for all levels, from novices to professional skiers, is assured until early May, along with everything the Espace Killy region has to offer off the slopes.
France: Val Thorens
Val Thorens, the highest member of the 3 Vallées resorts (and fact the highest resort in Europe), situated at 2300m, guaranteeing that when the lesser resorts begin to suffer, Val Thorens remains robust. With places open until May, the odds of being disappointed here in the late season are slim.
With good infrastructure, terrific restaurants, and everything we’ve come to expect from the 3-Vallées resorts, this is arguably the most dependable and accessible alternative.
The beautiful Matterhorn is generally the quintessential emblem that we all recall when we think of a Swiss ski resort. Even without the promise of late season snow, the village of Zermatt, which is home to the Matterhorn, is perhaps one of the best ski resorts in the world, featuring elegance and entertainment like no other.
Step onto Europe’s tallest cable car and step out onto the Matterhorn’s Glacier Paradise, which stands on the Italian border – so much so that you can even slide your way down into Cervinia if you have your international lift pass… The glacier is also open through the year, as there is always snow. The ski teams train during the summer season, as snow conditions are really good. Ski passes are cheaper during the summer season and you can benefit from advantageous weather conditions, a must try !
Lech has a well-deserved reputation as one of Austria’s better developed ski resorts. With consistent late-season skiing year after year, Lech maintains its skiable regions both naturally and with the assistance of snow cannons that cover 60% of its space.
Lech has everything you’d expect from Austrian charm, including excellent lodging and après-ski, as well as a héli-ski operation if you really want to have portions of the slopes to yourself.
