European summer time starts this Sunday

European summer time starts here in the Alps this weekend when the clocks go forward early on Sunday morning. 

The clocks change from 02.00 on Sunday 26th March to 03.00, which unfortunately means we lose an hour of sleep on Saturday night.

The “spring” forward of the clocks will, however, be great for après ski activities, as sunset on Sunday will be at around 19:54.

Remember to put your clocks forward on Saturday night and don’t be late for ski school if you've got lessons on Sunday morning!

It's not too late to be thinking about booking a Spring Ski trip to Chamonix, search for accommodation, travel and ski hire
