We all know how expensive a ski or snowboard holiday can be; and drinks in resort can add untold extras on top of your bill.
Where to Ski and Snowboard editors Dave Watts and Chris Gill introduced the Resort Price Index three years ago in response to the declining power of the pound, to help readers understand which resorts are more expensive than others.
But this season, two tour operators are helping out a bit further. Ski Total and Inghams are offering each couples €150 (about £121 at today’s exchange rate of €1.2 to £1) bar credit during a week’s holiday.
