Snowboarding next easter


I've never snowboarded before and as a complete novice I am looking for a little guidance. I'm looking to go next year for a week sometime between 19th March and 19th April. I've been looking around France, Austria, Italy and Switzerland.

I have done some reading but to be honest i'm getting a bit bogged down in promotions from different sites and travel agents.

I'm just looking for a little advice on where to go / where and when to book / best types of accommodation / and any honest general advice.

I'm looking to do this on a budget, but realise that it is not a cheap hobbie.

So, and help or advice would be gratefully recieved.

Many thanks



Andorra's very good & cheap for beginners.


tip no.1

dont go during the two week school holidays - can be double the price

also, 19th March and 19th April is near the end of the season in some places so need somewhere with altitude

andorra is great for a beginner and been about 5 times

jan - very very cold

feb / mar - perfect

apr - too warm so very slushy
