My question is simply does anyone know of any other Easter bargains? I have spent hours looking through the internet and these deals are not that easy to find. As we are always driving, we would probably only consider French resorts - the 9 hour drive back at the end nearly finished my off as it is! Thanks for any information.
We are lucky enough to go for 2 weeks each year I was just wondering about cheap alternatives. We also go to La Norma which we love and is a smaller/cheaper resort but obviously far more limited in the number of runs.

There are quite a few but, as you've noticed, not always widely advertised.
We've covered a few here; notably La Clusaz's "Learn to Ski for Free" late-season deal, but you also might keep an eye on Monterosa (Champoluc et al) as that's only a couple of hours extra drive via the Mont Blanc tunnel and for the past few years they've done "lift pass included" deals with accommodation for the last week or two of the season.
There's certainly been a push in French resorts to bring more people to the mountains at Easter and later, and - especially after this winters epic late-season skiing - we can expect that to continue.
La Norma also had a great deal where you could get the Eskimo pass for free for that week and visit the other 4 resorts. In the end the snow was so amazing we didn't take advantage of this.
We had 2 weeks of fresh snow every other day and two weeks of lift passes for the price of one at one of the big resorts. I suspect that this is unlikely to happen again, but who knows!?
