You need height at Easter. Next year Easter is late and so it's even more important. For me learner slopes up high would also be important as it will be ice then slush otherwise.

I'm a bit fussy about Easter skiing, so would only go to:

Val Thorens
Tignes/ Val D'isere
Cervinia

Sweden - Are, is also on my radar
Norway, but not been.
Ruka Finland - great little resort.

Other places will have snow, but snow above the melt line is what matters to me. I also want to ski home.

Transfers are the victim here. The high mountains in Southern Europe are furthest from airports.

Transport and access across Northern Europe varies, Sweden seems easiest - or did when I last checked.

The other best bet, just find a glacier resort. However IME places like La Plagne, Les Deux alpes, the glacier can take quite a bit of getting to. Like I said though, I'm fussy!

It might not be 'worse snow', but no snow!

Cervinia is probably the best of those in terms of transfer.

Check out Obergurl too. I always discount it due to my fussy snow obsession to the layout, but I think the transfer is better

USA or Canada? Long flight but transfers can be 60-90 minutes. Not sure what classes as a long transfer though. With teens I think the cost of the family ski companies would benefits.

Where are you thinking After? We've done Whistler, Brekenridge, Beaver Creek and transfers are all >2hours. I'm always keen on a shorter transfer too!

I was thinking resorts from Calgary or Kelowna airports or maybe tremblant? I think they are all less than 90 mins?

Go by train?
Then les Arcs/ Val thorens/ Tignes are easily accessible.
Cross country is available but not a big feature in those resorts.. look into it first
