At the end of the day, sometimes all you need is a place to sleep and scrub up when those slopes are calling…
Our cheap hotels will let you ski some of the finest slopes in the world on a shoestring. Why pay more if you don’t have to?
There isn't a template for cheap ski hotel catering. Yours may be Bed and Breakfast (usually a filling buffet in a dining hall), half-board (breakfast and dinner), completely self-catered (with a kitchenette of some description) or room-only (four walls; a bed or two, bath / shower).
While self-catered and room-only deals might at first seem the cheapest, the best deals are often the ones with meals included. Here's why - save though you may on your hotel room, you still have to eat and drink for a week. With breakfasts and suppers thrown in, a half-board hotel keeps you clear of steep restaurant prices on the mountains, while an all-inclusive place sometimes even covers lift passes and lessons (often throwing in a free bar too)...
Leaving it till the 11th hour can mean lucking into a few extras - you won't catch us saying no to a hotel with a pool. Sure, you may not be left with “something for everyone” - or your all-time favourite resort - but if you're a small party looking to ski off-peak, you may well be able to bag a brilliant last minute bargain.
Another way to do cheap luxury is to go for the smaller skiing nations: Bulgaria and Andorra have some smashing 4 and 5 star ski hotels, with palatial spas and fine food for a similar price you'd get an apartment for in the French or Swiss alps.
