Where to Ski and Snowboard’s editors got the cover feature in the Telegraph newspaper this weekend. They picked ten of the best value ski resorts for a story published on Saturday 2 October, as part of the newspaper’s introduction to the new winter season.

‘More Piste for Your Pound’ was compiled from our book’s comprehensive and thorough survey into the costs to eat and drink in resorts worldwide; and also listing the costs of essential items, such as lift passes, tuition and typical package holiday weeks.

The article highlights resorts in five of the six major skiing countries, where you can enjoy a proper skiing holiday at a reasonable price. And with money-saving tips to help you manage your budget even further, without compromising on the quality.

Of particular interest to British skiers this winter will be the impact of recent high costs in France; but we have been able to identify those that still offer reasonable value, for example, and offer a different experience once you get there: Morzine, Les Deux-Alpes and Serre Chevalier.

The basis for much of this feature was our Resort Price Survey. Our price-gatherers throughout the 2009/10 season have helped us to calculate and evaluate Resort Price Indexes for all the major resorts in the book, and to produce a list of the cheapest 50 resorts; those with below average prices for a range of typical meals and drinks. From that we could build a good picture of resorts that offer affordable fun without the 8 euro beers of Courchevel last season.

If you missed the newspaper’s printed copy, but would like to read the feature, it is reproduced on the Telegraph website travel.
