This is very much a matter of personal preference.
Christmas and New Year are very popular so the resort and pistes will be busy, and prices much higher. Christmas in the snow can be magical.
January is much underrated. The French tend not to take their holidays at this time of year, so the pistes are virtually empty with no lift queues. The weather can be very cold, but often the Alps enjoy blue skies and sunshine as well as low temperatures for much of the month. The snow can be excellent in January.The last week before half term can be fantastic, virtually the same conditions, without the people!
February is the month the French school holidays start,. The resort is always extremely
busy and children’s ski school places are often booked up months in advance. Avoid
this month if you don’t like being out-
March is when the sun starts to shine for longer and longer each day, and temperatures
are usually kinder to lunching out-
April is often, strangely the snowiest month of the season as April showers land as fresh snow in the mountains. In fine weather it is perfect for lazy long lunches in the sun, and the pistes are once again quiet. I have had my best off piste week in Tignes in April, and I have even had powder in the first week of May.
Perhaps time for a last minute break?
