The glamorous, sun-kissed resort of Verbier is one of the best places to ski in March if you are looking to hit the slopes in style. Stay at one of the resort’s luxurious, boutique chalets or hotels that feature the likes of Sir Richard Branson’s own ski chalet, The Lodge. Verbier’s exclusive experiences can be enjoyed both on and off of the mountain, with the high-altitude peaks boasting some of the best back country terrain in the world, and a wide choice of marked off-piste itinerary runs.
Stay at: Hotel Montpelier for an impressive choice of suites and rooms, and superb spa facilities.
Mayrhofen is one of the best places to ski in March, thanks to the relatively low altitude of the town at 630m, and high-altitude slopes that reach up to 3,250m. This means you can benefit from epic late-season powder days on the 204km of pistes, with top-ups from the extensive snow canons promising 100% snow cover. When the day draws to a close, head back down to the town to enjoy a well-earned beer or two in the sunshine.
Stay at: Hotel Strass, a centrally located property with a sports lounge and spa facilities.
If you are wondering ‘where does it snow in March in Europe?’ then Alpe d’Huez may well be the answer. This high-altitude resort has peaks that reach up to 3,330m, complete with glacial terrain that guarantees powder days late on into the season. The resort offers stunning wide open views across the Southern Alps, which will typically be blessed with glorious sunshine that makes for the perfect setting in which to enjoy an evening apéritif.
Stay at: Club Med Alpe d’Huez for a family-friendly all-inclusive holiday package.
Ischgl is one of the best places to ski in March as it offers more terrain above 2,000m than any other resort in Austria. Despite there being no glacier, skiers are all but guaranteed snow cover until as late on in the season as May, thanks to the fantastic natural snow record. A holiday in March is therefore guaranteed to see you enjoying the slopes at their very prime, and with 240km of runs to choose between there is enough to keep skiers busy all week long.
Stay at: Hotel Jagerhof for a convenient central location and family-friendly atmosphere.
