When choosing the best resort in which to learn, focus on the reason why you're going. Pick a beginner friendly ski resort.
So what makes a great beginners' ski area?
• specially designate nursery slopes, where everyone must ski carefully (in Meribel they're called "Zen Zones" and help to make your first snowplough a fun affair).
• highly recommended beginner ski schools where you can choose between the more cost effective group lessons and the more personal attention of private lessons.
• free lifts on the nursery slope, so you don't pay for a huge area lift pass that you won't use for the first few days in places like Val d'Isere, Alpe d'Huez, Tignes and the free beginners magic carpet in Chamonix.
If you're looking for a cheap place to learn to ski, then consider not only the price of the package holiday, but all of the extras too.
The very cheapest ski resorts for beginners are those in the eastern European countries, like Bulgaria and Slovenia, where the price of your cheap beginners' ski holiday is kept right down because the extras like equipment rental and lessons are also much cheaper than in the rest of the world.
For less budget approach, consider learning to ski in a resort with Club Med, who's all inclusive approach to ski holidays means that your food, drink, lift pass and even lessons are included in your holiday, leaving only your ski/boot rental to add to the price.
