Whether you are hitting the slopes for the first time or are a seasoned skier exploring new resorts, choosing the right accommodation can make all the difference to your holiday.  Here we offer you a selection of top tips straight from the experts so you can find the perfect base for your upcoming trip.

Types of ski accommodation

There are many accommodation types to choose from and each carries its own advantages and disadvantages. Opting for a self-catering break is perhaps the most affordable option, particularly if you are travelling in a larger group or as a family. Self-catering accommodation however can be a little basic so for those looking for a home away from home a chalet may provide a better fit.

Many chalets are usually catered providing an all-inclusive deal for those looking to return to a cooked meal after a long day’s skiing. Hotels can also provide a great base for long and short breaks.

Working to your budget

Ski holidays aren’t known for being the most affordable breaks around, however, there is a way enjoy the most amazing ski hotspots without breaking the bank. By choosing a hotel or chalet located a walk away from the ski lifts your accommodation costs will decrease dramatically. For those looking to stay in accommodation based a short journey from the slopes, many resorts offer a free ski bus to ensure you don’t have to make hard work of getting to your favourite spots with all your gear.

Opting for ski-friendly amenities

As you can imagine much of the accommodation throughout popular and lesser known resorts is built with skiers in mind. Whilst you may pay more for these ski-friendly features, the option to ‘ski in and ski out’ ensures you can take in all that the slopes have to offer.
