Ski holidays for the British are now cheaper than ever, with the pound looking strong against the euro and the dollar, and even facing up to the Swiss Franc. If you are among the 40% of our visitors who live outside the United Kingdom, sorry, but we couldn’t resist saying that!
For more offers, check out the websites of operators such as Crystal Ski, Inghams, Mark Warner, Neilson, and Ski World. Consult specialist travel agencies, too – such as Sno, Snowfinders, Momentum Ski and Snow-Wise.
Due to reader demand, we have now added the ski holiday prices in euros (with the exchange rate correct at the time of writing), although you should contact tour operators direct for a quote that doesn’t include travel from the UK.
