Skiing holidays are 20 per cent cheaper today than they were two years ago, according to Where to Ski and Snowboard 2016, which is launched today.

A vital part of the “skiers bible” is its annually updated Resort Price Index (RPI) figures, which show at a glance how each resort compares with the average Eurozone resort for the cost of food and drink, lift pass, equipment and ski lessons.

The 2016 guide reports how, because of dramatic exchange rate changes, resorts in the eurozone (which includes France, Austria, Italy and Andorra) have become around 20% cheaper in terms of pounds than they were two years ago.

The same cannot be said of US and Swiss resorts where exchange rates have not moved as favourably. According to the guide’s RPI (Resort Price Index) figures, on-the-spot costs in Swiss ski resorts are likely to be around 50% more than in the eurozone, and in US resorts about double the eurozone costs.

This is the 21st birthday of the Where to Ski and Snowboard. More details on how to buy your copy at a special launch price very soon…
