Your Best Options for Late Season Ski Deals in Europe

If you want to grab your last chance to hit the slopes this season, now is the time to book your late season skiing holiday. So get your sunglasses and poles ready as we help you pick the best late season ski resorts!

Zermatt, Switzerland

The famous Swiss ski resort hosts Europe's highest lifts from the Klein Matterhorn, taking you up to 3899m where snow retains its high quality until late in the season. It is also one of the few truly year-round ski destinations in the world, as 70 per cent of the pistes are either situated on the glacier or have snow-making facilities. What is more, the iconic Matterhorn is probably an even more awe inspiring sight during spring than in winter.

Riksgransen, Sweden

If you are not heading high in search for snow, you definitely have to head north! Situated 250km inside the Arctic Circle, Riksgransen is one of the world's most northern ski resorts. It offers the best skiing conditions late in the season and the lifts don't stop running until the end of June. In fact, it is too dark to open until February but, from late May, the 24-hour daylight allows you to ski under the midnight sun into the small hours!
