Cheap Skiing Holidays
by Peter Sylvester
CHEAP SKIING HOLIDAYS
Cheap skiing holidays are now commonplace.
There was a time when cheap skiing holidays - a life on the glorious piste - were simply unobtainable.
Now, all has changed.
AN EXAMPLE OF REALLY CHEAP SKIING HOLIDAYS
Leisure Direction now launches its 2005 ski and snowboard brochure with an offer of four sharing a French self-catering studio including a Dover-Calais channel crossing with car!
And the cost of it all………£49 per week!
Now that is a classic example of cheap skiing holidays, isn’t it?
ANOTHER CHEAP SKIING HOLIDAY
How would you fancy a £220 per person per week at a two star hotel in Courchevel?
This is still pretty cheap. Skiing holidays are now something you can afford.
And all inclusive ski holidays include a price guarantee, various offers for certain holidays, and for one parent travelling with one or two children between 4 and 11 there is no supplement.
Cheap skiing holidays are a fact - not a fantasy.
WHERE TO FIND CHEAP SKIING HOLIDAYS
There are obviously cheap skiing holidays in many countries but my choice would always be France. Easy to get to France now has huge ski circuits with piste for all abilities.
And increasingly they now offer dedicated snow parks, half-pipes, schools and board hire for the growing numbers of enthusiastic snowboarders.
And of course cheap skiing holidays always include the mandatory apres-ski.
Add that to hang gliding par ascending and skating - and you can’t go wrong.
Courchevel 1550 is a value for money resort with tree-lined and affordable restaurants - but it is not far from Courchevel 1850 which is cosmopolitan and chic and boasts some superb restaurants.
Just the place - even on a cheap skiing holiday - to embrace just once the luxury some rich people don’t even notice!
Other places to contemplate are Chatel - nearest to Calais - Alpe d’Huez and Arc Pierre Blanche - a resort for whole families.
Be happy choosing your cheap skiing holidays.
