THIS DEAL HAS EXPIRED
Skiing and snowboarding holidays are notoriously expensive but I love the snow and I love a challenge, so I set out to find a cheap skiing holiday AND included ski hire and lift passes for less than £500 per person.
We hunted high and low with the various holiday companies offering ski holidays but one kept coming up time and time again. Ski France.
As the name suggests it was expected that they be specialists at ski holidays and they certainly were. Finding a ski holiday for under £50 was easy, but if you're anything like us, you'll probably need your ski hire and lift passes included in the cost which whacks up the price.
With Ski France we found what we wanted. Seven nights, self-catering at the three-star Residence Le Vermont in the Valmeinier ski resort, including skis, boots and lift passes for only £461 per person, based on two sharing. What's more, it included transfers to and from the resort from Grenoble Airport and flights with Monarch Airlines from London Gatwick.
The Residence Le Vermont apartments are clean and comfortable with all you would expect from a self-catering apartment. They are even just a few minutes walk from the ski slopes meaning no shuttle bus each day to and from the resort.
The ski resort itself offers restaurants, shops, a club and cinema, as well as numerous sports activities if you want to take a day off from the slopes.
Departing mid December, this trip was only £461pp so you too could be enjoying the Alps a lot sooner than you think.
