How I bagged an awesome budget ski holiday in the Alps
I’ve been skiing since I was about nine years old, and so I know by now that’s there no way around it completely: skiing just ain’t cheap. That said, if you’re wily, there are ways you can book an awesome ski holiday on a more limited budget. If you’re a family and you’re careful, you can self cater in an apartment with the kids of a sofa bed, for example — but this isn’t always feasible if you’re travelling in a non-family group.
In January, six of us decided we were really determined to book a skiing holiday this year. Cash was a problem, but as experienced snow bunnies, we also didn’t want to compromise and go to some bargain-basement Bulgarian resort. Similarly we didn’t want the hassle of self-catering and wanted to be in accommodation where it was still easy to socialise.
It took some work to find the right solution, but eventually we found it. We ended up in a catered chalet in Morzine, which included breakfast, afternoon tea, three-course dinners with canapés, cheese boards and unlimited wine, and transfers for Geneva. AND all that was well within our limited budget.
