Les Deux Alpes, glacier resort. If the snow is as good as last year it will be amazing.

Skied there last year but preferred Alp D'Huez each to their own. Depends on the late season snow we went to Passo Tonale once when easter was early and the kids were young it mostly melted the week before a bit of glacier at the top (a couple of T-bars on it) with loads of people on it and slush on the way down our snowbarder son stopped in the middle of a slush/water lake yeuch!

Val Thorens, Les Menuires is good that time of the year due to the Height in the 3 valleys. we are off early March to Livigno/Austria and Germany...

Ischgl or Obertauren in Austria both been good late March
Different types of resorts/skiing depends what you are after
The amounts of snow that Austria has had the last couple of weeks it should stick around for a while this winter

Yes, where I will be mostly until then
Well if you then watch the weather report at 10pm on La 1 they usually give the snow reports for every ski location in spain. Not sure if it is every night though ?

Agree

High, High, High.

Trois Vallees, but I woud stay in Meribel not Val Thorens or down in the valley below Val Thorens and take the lift up.

Another alternative is Verbier and stay on the CP by the (?) lift.

Or Val d'Isere, but don't know about MH parking.

We would like to try Alp D’Huez but we stay in the motorhome on the campsite in Venosc and I can’t be bothered to pack up and drive up there. I really should one day :D

Les Deux Alpe has an aire (12 euros 2 years ago) and according to locals better snow retention than Alpe D'huez which also has a large aire.

Les Arcs, campsite at Pesey Nancroix called Les Lanchettes very good and bus links.

Les Menuire has an Aire as does La Plage one at about 1200 metres and one at about 2000 metres with leccy.

FWIW the Tarentaise is usually good late season.

Espace Killy for a huge area suitable for a mixed group, Tignes and Val d'Isere, maybe bigger than you want. High, plenty of glaciers, @ variety of skiing and snows late-season.

Deciding now on where you might as well take walking shoes and skis.....

Plenty of slopes closed around here due to avalanche risk and with 20º this week the snow canons have been on duty. Piste quality is quite poor now due to daytime melt and night time freezing.

Personally i'd decide the week before based on actual piste conditions
