4 cheap ski holidays that won't break the bank

Think you can’t afford to go skiing because you’re a student? Think again!

Forget Colorado’s Aspen or France’s Chamonix, there are tons of more affordable ski resorts that won’t leave your pockets empty.

So pull on your snow boots and grab your ski goggles; it’s time to hit the slopes, powder hound!

Arinsal, Andorra

They say good things come in small packages, and Andorra is no exception. Take to the Pyrenean Mountains here and discover the delights of Arinsal. Once known as nothing more than a down-market party town, the slopes have massively improved – and the party is still going!

Kranjska Gora, Slovenia

Just 4 miles from the borders of Italy and Austria, the resort of Kranjska Gora boasts all of the same ingredients – without the hefty price tag. Every winter, the slopes here host two World Cup events: the men's slalom and giant slalom, meaning that this is a place with plenty of aplomb.

Borovets, Bulgaria

If you’re on a budget this year, there’s nowhere better to head than to the Eastern reaches of Europe. Sitting just outside of capital Sofia, Borovets is what cheap ski trip dreams are made of and is ideal for beginners and advanced skiers alike. Sitting amidst the majestic Rila Mountains, it’s also known for its legendary – and super cheap – nightlife.
