Ski into Spring: 8 of the Best Alpine Properties Available in March

 

Say hello to holidaying on the sun-drenched snowy slopes and enjoy a memorable mountain escape this spring. With the sunny spring days fast approaching, let us remind you why spring skiing is so fantastic, and discover the 8 best Alpine properties available in March.

Late-season skiing guarantees high visibility on the runs and some of the best snow conditions of the winter months. In fact, fluffy, powder snowfalls tend to come through March and April. Last year we saw an average of 33 cm of fresh snowfall throughout March here in Verbier. With the arrival of the spring equinox, you can make the most of enjoying fabulous snow conditions on the slopes. Make the most of the longer hours of daylight as you delight in lingering lunches and refreshing drinks on warm, sun-drenched terraces. Not to mention, thanks to generally lower demand at this time of the season, you can be far more flexible with how you spend your holiday. Read on to discover our properties available in March to suit whatever your needs, for an ultra memorable and luxurious spring ski trip!

Chalet Grand Cœur, Verbier

Sleeping up to eight, Chalet Grand Cœur in Verbier is the perfect retreat for a family ski holiday, offering a chic, comforting ambience and luxurious private facilities including a heated outdoor pool. Less than a 1-minute drive from the Savoleyres lift station, explore the vast 410 km of pistes making up the 4 Vallées ski area and stop to soak up the rays with a delicious Swiss lunch at one of the wonderful on-mountain restaurants, such as Le Dahu. For the early birds, allow us to arrange an early-morning ski tour for you with an experienced guide, and admire the pinkish hues of the sky as you make your way down the mountain at sunrise. Don’t miss the grand finale of the Freeride World Tour (March 25th-April 2nd); we recommend finding a perch at Les Gentianes (also accessible for non-skiers!), for the best spot marvelling at seemingly impossible freeriding on the Bec des Rosses.

Chalet Shalimar, Zermatt

Some of Zermatt’s largest and most extreme skiing areas including Stockhorn and Triftji only open from February, as an abundance of snow is required to blanket their advanced slopes. This makes March an ideal time to visit one of the highest ski resorts in Switzerland and Europe, to get your adrenaline fix. For a much-needed sugar hit to refuel, why not spend the afternoon sampling heavenly Cremeschnitte custard pastries at the likes of Zum See? Indulge in wood-fired calzone pizza or seafood tagliolini at Grampi’s, a family-friendly Italian restaurant. In the afternoon, sit on the spacious balcony or terrace of Chalet Shalimar — which is able to entertain a total of 20 guests — and embrace the spectacular views of the Matterhorn as you top up your tan and sip on an Aperol spritz. Make use of the fantastic private spa facilities with everything you could need to unwind, including an indoor swimming pool, sauna, hammam and massage room.

Chalech 4, Lech

Admire magnificent deep blue skies as you enjoy breakfast al-fresco on the balcony of Chalech 4, Lech, which sleeps up to 12+2 people. Rejuvenate mind and body in the chalet’s sauna and hammam, or opt to make the most of the shared indoor swimming pool, tepidarium and gym. In Oberlech, head to the legendary Burg Bar for sun-drenched après ski, and then grab a bobsled and make your way down the spectacular tobogganing route to Lech. Those of all ages can also enjoy skating and curling at the 300 m2 air-conditioned ice rink based in the Hotel Jagdhaus Monzabon.

Kikombe Lodge, St. Anton

In the heart of St. Anton, embrace the timeless chalet feel of the luxurious ski apartment Kikombe Lodge. Sleeping up to 10 guests in 5 bedrooms, lounge on one of the sumptuous sofas in the spacious yet cosy-feeling living room with a book in hand. The high beamed ceilings and huge windows frame the spectacular views from the lounge across the pistes and beautiful, sun-soaked mountains. To make the most of the usually wonderful weather in March, bask in sunlight at Rendl Beach Bar, which offers a huge terrace area overlooking the Austrian Alps and the exhilarating St Anton snow park. After a day skiing the expansive Arlberg area, unwind in the typical Swedish-style sauna. With the calming massage room tucked away on the ground floor, why not let us arrange a rejuvenating post-ski massage for you?

Chalet Yeti, Val d’Isère

In Val d’Isère, cherish family moments as you share stories and snuggle up inside by the roaring fireplace together at the cosy Chalet Yeti, accommodating 10 people. With slopes rising to 3,456m, the ample high-altitude, north-facing terrain makes it a shoo-in for late-season snow conditions. You will spend less time following the crowds and more time skiing the best slopes this glamorous resort has to offer. Dressed in a dry suit, try ice floating in the frozen Lac d’Oiullette, a relaxation technique originating from the Finnish Lapland – or for those who enjoy balmier temperatures, just opt for a dip in your own indoor swimming pool followed by a steam in the hammam!

Chalet Carat, Courchevel

Situated in the exclusive Bellecôte neighbourhood and within easy reach of the nearest slope, Chalet Carat in Courchevel is an elegant alpine retreat, which sleeps 8+2 guests and boasts an indoor pool, sauna and cinema room. Wake up and sip your coffee on the terrace, which gets all the warm morning sunlight. Head upstairs to share a hearty breakfast with friends or family around the 8-seater dining table as you enjoy views across the peaks. On a spring day, drift through snow-cloaked scenery as you go dog-sledging. Feeling peckish after an active day of sunlit skiing? Boasting no less than eight Michelin-starred restaurants, sample Courchevel’s mouth-watering Alpine gastronomy. Go-to eateries on the slopes include Le Chalet de Pierres which serves authentic Savoyard specialities, and Le Cap Horn, where you and your loved ones will dine on delicious, fresh steamed lobster and sushi.

Chalet Petite Ourse, Megève

In Megève, cross-country skiers can find 45km of designated Nordic trails to explore. Glide between sparkling pine forests, sunny plateaus, and pristine snow-covered fields and enjoy exercise and scenery combined. Enveloped by whimsical woodland, Chalet Petite Ourse sleeps 12+3 and enjoys an incredible spa space and an ultra-modern cinema room. Treat yourself to a post-ski pamper session as you ease your weary muscles in the in-chalet hammam. Applaud the snow-clad beauty of the Alps as you soak in the sunken hot tub and gaze at the settling snow through floor-to-ceiling windows.

Accommodating 12 people, Mont Tremblant has a peaceful outdoor pool and hot tub with breathtaking vistas, as well as its own bar and games room; the perfect home for entertaining. The fun doesn’t end for kids either! One of the baby slopes in Méribel has been transformed into a children’s wonderland ‘Yeti park’, with tunnels, igloos, secret caves and even a zip line to enjoy, making learning to ski in the sun even more fun. Come evening, for epicureans who love to sip on tempting house cocktails in stylish bars, go to Barometer.
