You can go skiing in may but you will need to go to a resort with a glacier, or maybe somewhere south of the equater like new zealand or chile. Saas Fee in Switzerland has a glacier but obviosuly the skiing will be limited as the runs down to the village will be closed. you are really better of going between december and april if you can.

Thanks monkeychops.

This was the feeling I was beginning to get. I have looked in the Crystal brochure and they have a list of summer ski resorts but doesn't actually state when the "summer season" is! :? Looks like it might be another sun holiday this year and maybe ski end of the year or early next. :(

No problem surferchick, i think you would be better going end of this year/early next year, or you could check out the snow reports for may and just book last minute. the ski season seem to be getting longer for some reason so you may be lucky, but i certainly wouldnt book!

definitely recommend saas fee though, its the most beatiful ski resort, check it out!

Once again thank you. We were going to get a last minute deal anyway as we have found it is much cheaper and more for your money in past years. We were looking at booking on the internet purely for prices so we can set our budget not actually looking to book till 1-2 weeks before. In your experience have you had no problems with last minute ski deals? We have had our choices narrowed down to switzerland, france and austria for our holiday purely down to the fact these are "apparently" the best resorts for this time off.
Thanks for your help

I have never booked a last minute ski deal but i would have thought you would be fine. I always like to book in advance so that i can look forward too it (sad i know) and i also like to read up on the resort etc before i go. we are hoping to book a last minute one for next year though, so fingers crossed!

I have booked last minute and did not have any problem. Picked tickets up at the airport and booked all the ski equipment at the welcome meeting.
Just a thought, dont forget to check out kaprun in Austria for a fantastic, glacier skiing experience - always a good resort for summer skiing...... also, Obertaurn where we have stayed at height of ski season is very high altitude and their season is longer than most of the other resorts in Austria..

Good luck and enjoy.
