Random housekeeping today. I found these calendars for the past and upcoming season.

Mardi Gras was Feb. 25 and Easter Apr. 12


Mardi Gras is Feb. 16 and Easter Apr. 4

I was looking to when my likely reschedule to Val Thorens might be. 2022 will be good year for early spring in the Alps with Easter being Apr. 17. Britain and Germany have schoiol holidays during the two weeks bracketing Easter. Our first day in Val d'Isere in 2018 was the last Friday of those two weeks and it was fairly obvious.

Only potential issue I see is non-North faces being in the awkward transition to spring snow--do you know how much of the best terrain faces north in Verbier?

The length of the summer holidays varies a lot across Europe

In Europe, the school year generally ends between the end of May and the second half of July. Mid-June is the time when the summer break begins in most countries.
