Some Great Budget Ski Resorts

Some Great Budget Ski Resorts

If you’re looking for a snow covered slope, perfect for gliding down without breaking the bank, here is your guide to some of the best budget ski resorts across the globe.

1) Bansko, Bulgaria
The savvy skier is quick to realise that there is no need to throw buckets of cash to slide down a slight selection of slopes in the Three Valleys resort or Espace Killy. This is where smaller and cheaper resorts like Bankso come in. Food wise it is a good resort to eat offering good meals at a cheap price, with a selection of cuisines. It is also an ideal location for families as childcare is very cheap.

2) Courchevel, France
Courchevel may not be the first place to come to mind when thinking of budget skiing in Europe, certainly it has its expensive side but those in the know can get some really great deals here in France. You can get to the area for a good price and there are some good budget eateries around 1850, there is also a good happy hour at the Bubble Bar in 1650.

3) Cerviina, Italy
Over the mountain from Zerhmatt you will find Cervinia, a less known smaller and cheaper base to experience Matterhorn ski area. Though skiing on to the Swiss side can prove quite pricey and if you’re not careful about where you eat you will find your whole weeks spending money swallowed up.

4) Lake Tahoe, USA
You can really take advantage of the weak dollar and spend a few day on the slopes in California. Lake Tahoe has a diverse range of slopes catering to all tastes, it attracts skiers and snowboarders alike. With nearly five hundred runs you can cover a great deal of distance for your dollar. Here you can take advantage of the Lake Tahoe vacation rentals and save money on hotel expenses and also cut costs by self catering. Furthermore there are some stunning views from the mountain, with the lake stretching out in front like a beautiful crash mat.

5) Schladming, Austria
Tucked away in the Enns Valley, Schladming is one of Austria’s best kept secrets. Being only an hour away from Salzburg there are a range of cheap flights from all the budget airline companies. There are many good holiday rentals to take advantage of around here and some good places for hearty local cuisine, sold at a very reasonable price.

6) Flaine, France
Not the most beautiful resort in the world, but a price that reflects it. The resort has become popular with families for its great prices and relative easiness. For an intermediate skier this is a great destination offering childcare at a very good price.

7) Soldeu, Andorra
Andorra is one of the world’s prime locations for budget skiing, perhaps the original cheap slope based destination. Soldeu is a great location for beginners with some great mild slopes to cut your teeth on. There are also a great number of cheap eateries around the area too, for food look no further than Fat Albert’s, which also has a great bar upstairs.
