Bargain Courchevel

Courchevel is the door to the world’s biggest linked ski area, with Les 3 Vallees’ 600km of pistes. And Hotel Courchevel Olympic offers Champagne quality for a distinctly lemonade price tag. It’s just 100m from the nearest ski lift and had a swanky facelift last season. A week’s stay from 10 January costs £517 pp including breakfast. Flights are from £58 pp with easyJet.

The best skiing holidays that won't break the bank

What with the combination of snowy landscapes, a healthy dose of adrenaline, plenty of cheese and a good few mulled wines, it’s not hard to see the appeal of a skiing holiday.

But it’s all too easy to be put off by the hefty price tags that often come attached to ski trips.

And it’s true that you wouldn’t struggle to drop thousands on a luxury chalet in one of Europe’s swankier resorts – but there are plenty of options if you aren’t splashing the cash.

We’ve rounded up our favourite trips for the European 2017/18 season that’ll give you all the fun of the slopes, and leave you some spare change for a hot chocolate.

If you’re more into gentle pottering than extreme thrills, go for the quiet slopes of Vemdalen in Sweden. It’s perfect for more nervous skiers, but there are decent black runs and off piste for gaining confidence. There’s a ski bus linking three ski areas from the village, which also offers dog sledding and snowmobiling. A week at the 3* Hovde Hotel costs from £645 pp based on two sharing departing 14 December, and includes flights, accommodation and transfers or car hire.
