2018 Time Out Group Ltd and Time Out Digital Ltd. Skiing is never going to be a cheap holiday, but it needn’t cost a fortune. Sure, there’ll always be the loaded Martini-advert lookalikes who hang out in the famous resorts, but the economic downturn and rising fuel surcharges mean ski operators are already trying to offload fantastic deals. A bit of time spent on the internet researching options will throw up pistes to fit most pockets this season. Europe, has a bad rep. Horror stories of rickety secondhand chairlifts moved from northern European resorts, few shops from which to hire equipment and shocking organisation have generally kept all but students and hard-pressed families at bay.
Look for resorts that regularly host international competitions, because the facilities and infrastructure are more likely to be up to scratch. Albania where, despite plenty of powder, there isn’t a single ski lift or mountain rescue team. Poland’s most popular resort is Zakopane, south of Krakow. Though it’s not as well organised as Switzerland, the archaic lift infrastructure is currently being modernised and it’s every bit as chocolate-boxy to look at. Krkonose is the most popular Czech resort, although if you want to save even more cash, try the back-country destination of Spindleruv Mlyn. Krkonose and other Czech ski resorts.
Borovets, which has been completely modernised and boasts pistes up to a very respectable 2,600m. If you hope to bag a real bargain avoid well-known resorts when schools are on holiday. Prefer to ski somewhere flash? St Moritz and Val d’Isère can make the sturdiest bank accounts shudder and it’s easy to blow thousands before you even step on to the slopes, but look hard and you’ll find good deals. It’s also worth considering a satellite village, which will be cheaper than the main resort and you can still ski the entire area. When booking late, check the snow reports daily and book right up to the wire: prices start dropping a month before depature date, but you’ll save up to 50 per cent if you book just a couple of days before you go.
Clearly, the choice pickings don’t last long. It’s obvious, but beware the hidden charges and don’t believe a holiday price until you’ve got to the ‘pay now’ stage. Many travel operators offer healthy discounts for booking online but some hit you with unexpected extras. If money’s really tight, consider paying more for a fully catered holiday. It’s easy to spot the types who dress to impress and can’t really ski: they’re the ones in expensive kit. If it’s your first or second time, borrow your outfit piecemeal.
Ask friends to lend you clothing and accessories, even ski socks. Though upon your return check washing instructions, and if you scratch expensive goggles don’t quibble about replacing like-for-like. Put a bottle opener, small sharp knife, butter knife, and some plastic cultery in your check-in luggage. You’ll be one of the canny ones who takes packed lunches to eat on the piste to enjoy in remote, mountain-top locations. It’s a rare resort that doesn’t have at least one bar offering free food during après-ski. Find out which and drink there: your dinner’s free. With so much early snow, expect slushy resorts. Don’t take your expensive Ugg boots, use your festival wellies and thermal socks. The club has reps on the ground in many ski regions across Europe who deliver first-hand piste accounts, rather than generic weather reports, and have detailed information about most destinations across Europe. The club also offers excellent and reliable advice in everything from guides through to social events. Austria’s Snowbombing festival was ten years old in 2009. Innsbruck, Salzburg or Munich, and then arrange a transfer through Snowbombing. If you plan to hire ski gear, book in advance and collect as soon as you arrive because in the past there’s been a shortage of snowboarding boots in the village.
