mmmm tricky one - as the season has ended in most places in Europe.

I know that WHistler Mountain is open to the end of June ...

Look for places with Glaciers as that's your best bet now

Generally the closed season when they do repairs and lift servicing, even on glaciers !

Les Diablerets has a glacier I seem to remember. Or is it Gryon?

Try looking up Neustift on or just google the place - Neustift is a town on the huge Stubai glacier in Austria and has all year skiing.

Saas Fee has a glacier but I think summer season starts in June?
therefore, Milton Keynes!!

Anteater, good luck with finding ski hol in May/ June. If you are looking to buy any ski wear for yourself or family my dp runs a new outdoor clothing company which sells ski gear art very very low prices. Its made by Regatta and called Dare To Be. Let me know and can pass your name on to him.

There is still some snow out in Chamonix in France (up in the high mountains) - my friend has a lovely chalet out there - Chalet le Sache and caters for children too. Check out their website
