Spring is here, and that means it’s a great time to plan your next ski trip. Although most people think of skiing as a “winter sport,” there  are several advantages to skiing in the spring. For example, ski resorts tend to be less crowded, so you’ll spend less time waiting in the line for the ski lifts and more time on the slopes. Prices go down, too, so you’ll get a better deal. Plus, the days are longer, sunnier and generally more pleasant than they are in the dead of winter.

However, if you’re planning a late-season ski trip,  there are a few considerations you should keep in mind. First,  high elevations stay snowier longer, so look for a resort at least a mile and a half high. Popular late season resorts include Val Thorens in France, Riksgransen and Are in Sweden, Livigno in Italy, Zermatt and Saas Fee in Switzerland and Whistler-Blackcomb in Canada.

Also, remember that ski season ends at most resorts in April, so if you’re going to go, you need to leave soon.  Many of the best late-season resorts are in other countries, so order expedited passports if you don’t already have them.

Getting expedited passports is easiest if you use a private passport expediting company.  An expediting service will deliver your passport application to the Passport Agency by hand, so it goes to the top of the stack and is processed more quickly. With an expediting service, you can have your expedited passports processed in as little as 24 hours!
