Winter Sports Holiday Costs at an All Time Low

If you’re thinking about a last minute winter sports trip, there has never been a better time to book. According to recent research conducted by The Post Office and Crystal Ski, the cost of things like equipment hire, lift passes and ski schools are all cheaper than last year, thanks to the strength of the Pound against the Euro.

The survey found that 24 out of 27 resorts in Europe and North America were cheaper than last year, with things like drinks, meals, equipment hire, ski schools and lift passes down by as much as 15% compared to last year’s costs.
The research focussed on the cost of a six-day holiday for an individual, including ski and boot hire, ski school lessons, plus the costs of lunch and non-alcoholic drinks. The data was then organised to find the cheapest resorts for this season, the top 21 included;
