Ski holidays have a reputation for being quite expensive. After all, skiing and snowboarding are expensive pursuits… Right? Actually, no.
We think that a good ski holiday can be found for a pretty low price actually. You just need to know where to look.
We’ve put together the best sites for finding cheap ski package deals from across the internet. These sites often offer some of the craziest prices when it comes to ski deals, which can include anything from premium accommodation in a top resort, to lift passes and all inclusive or half board catering options.
Dutch holiday provider Sunweb doesn’t sound like a cheap ski package provider, but actually, they’re one of the best value companies on the market. Sunweb specialise mostly on Alpine destinations, and you’ll often spot some crazy deals on relatively high end resorts and some more obscure ones too.
They mainly offer very low prices on French resorts, but you’ll also find tempting deals to Austria, Italy, Andorra and even Switzerland.
Another great thing about Sunweb is that they also include lift passes as standard on their budget ski packages. This means you can get an absurdly low price for a ski trip.
It’s 50/50 whether Snowtrex of Sunweb offers the best value. Between these two budget ski package providers, German company Snowtrex can often turn up even more competitive deals than the above. Snowtrex actually offer a slightly wider range of destinations, including resorts in Germany, Czech Republic and the USA.
Snowtrex also include lift passes as standard with their ski packages, so you can often find a very good deal here.
Spanish holiday package provider Estiber is one of the best options for trips to the Pyrenees, and also offer great deals to the Alps. Whether you’re looking for Spanish or French Pyrenees, or looking for a cheap ski deal to Sierra Nevada (Europe’s most southerly ski resort), Estiber can often turn up trumps.
Like some of the other sites on this list, they also include lift passes with their ski packages.
If you’re shopping around for a cheap deal in either the Pyrenees or the Alps, definitely take a look at Estiber.
Another Spanish based travel company, Esquiades are very similar to Estiber. Between the two of them, you’ll find some of the best deals to the Pyrenees and Spanish resorts, as well as good deals to the Alps.
Esquiades also include lift passes with their budget ski deals, so they’re worth checking out.
This Polish site can be a bit of a gem when it comes to finding a deal in a more obscure resort. It’s a bit of a hassle to use, as they often turn up no deals on certain date ranges. This can make it frustrating if you’re looking for a specific date or destination. But if you use their suggested deals sections, you can sometimes find a really nice offer.
While they don’t offer lift passes as standard, there are sometimes packages with lift pass under the ‘free ski’ heading. Worth checking out for sure.
While British ski package provider SkiWorld aren’t the cheapest, the value in their offers is in the fully included packages. Yes, the list price might look more expensive than most of the sites on here, but they actually include flights, hold luggage and accomoodation; and even transfers, equipment and lift passes with their ski all in deals.
SkiWorld mostly serve the popular French Alps resorts, but you’ll also find some tempting deals to Austria and Switzerland too, as well as the USA and Canada.
Worth checking out if you want the full ski package experience.
