Spring is in the air and there’s never been a better time to ski

After the Blizzard of Oz 1 and 2, it’s safe to say that 2017 has been one of the best seasons in living memory. And with over 100 cm of snow still on the ground in most resorts, it’s also fair to say that if you’ve ever contemplated a spring skiing holiday, now is the time to do it.
