Crystal Ski Holidays has developed a brilliant new tool to help you find your perfect ski holiday destination by choosing criteria most important to them.

The new interactive tool allows skiers to hone down their choice of resorts by selecting the factors that are most important to them on a ski holiday. The tool lets you compare 50 different ski resorts around the world by selecting different filters that are important to you — for example the cost of a beer, the number of bars, the number of spas or off-snow activities. 

Crystal hopes the tool will ease the research process for skiers and snowboarders, whether they are planning a ski holiday as a family, a couple, a group of students or looking for a budget holiday. Once you’ve honed down your choice, click on the suggested resorts — you get first, second and third choices highlighted as good options — and the tool will tell you more about the resort of your choice, for example the exact choice of a beer or burger, or the number of spas.

Crystal’s fun new interactive tool was compiled using 50 of the most popular ski resorts from 13 different skiing countries around the world, researching 18 unique metrics for each, to help users rank their ultimate ski resort. To try it for yourself, visit

High-scorers of the research include:

Best for student Savers - Bulgaria offers the cheapest beers and burgers, and plenty of bars in ski resorts like Bansko, Borovets and Pamporovo.

Best for family skiing – children up to the age of 15 get free lift passes in Andorra, where adult lift-passes are as cheap as £178 (in Arinsal).

Thrill Seekers – Vail in Colorado comes top as the resort for adrenaline junkies, with 53 difficult runs and eight other snow-sports on offer. Whistler in Canada comes a close second.

Couples skiing – Heavenly in California and Sauze D’Oulx in Italy have been tagged as the romantic getaway options for couples with excellent fine dining options, good value wine and relaxing spas.
