We've been to Val Cenis the last three years, It's in on the French/Italian border. Snow is good that time of year and MGS ski (the folks we've been with) offers all in prices for accommodation, passes etc so you know what you paying for. They also offer group ski every weekday afternoon. Small groups defined by ability, lead by ECS ski instructors, at no extra cost. These guys really show you the mountain and the runs that are less used. The day finishes at bar and the lifts are never busy. Plenty of social life in the village, fantastic burgers at Howard Bar and Grenoble is 60 minutes, I know as ad to pick up the wife and daughter this time as my son was on a two week video shot for MGS.

As others have said snow could be an issue that late but we started our two weeks this year on 18th March and there was plenty of snow (and bluebird clear skys) and mostly intermediate level skiing. The Ski and Snowboard show is running over next weekend in Battersea. MGS and others with be there, it's a great place to strike a deal. Tell them Greg and Oli recommended you, we might see you out there.

I'm on holiday in Seefeld at the moment. It's been a very warm winter up to now, so I'd certainly recommend somewhere high up, like Cervinia. Same snow conditions, but cheaper than Zermatt. Seefeld is currently relying on snow cannons in the night to keep the runs open.
