Book your next ski holiday with confidence

I was about 15 when I began skiing.Our school went on a trip to France, it was like nothing I had ever experienced before. Huge snow capped peaks surrounding towns with quaint pubs and cosy chalets. Light powdery snow rather than the wet slushy stuff we usually get here and a view that quite literally took my breath away. Since then I have been hooked. Nothing compares to the rush of standing on top of a sea of mountains covered in fresh white snow, well... maybe sliding down them.

So where can you get the best alpine experiences?

If you are a skier, or would like to try, but booking a snowsports trip online seems a bit daunting and you're not really sure what to look for, then this is the place for you!

How can I make the most of my trip?

We have resort guides that are simple to use. Our reviews look at what each place has to offer and then we help you match that to your needs. Some towns are better for night life, some are quieter and more relaxing, some mountain retreats suit families, and some are better than others depending on your ability level.

Family Ski Holidays

Still want to know more? Good, the more you know the better the vacation you will have. We have webcam links, up-to-date snow reports and photos too. Finally, when you come back have your say by leaving your own review. To make the most of your trip find somewhere that has everything you want before you book your winter break.

And how can I do it without re-mortgaging the house???

Snowsports are not the cheapest hobbies, but if you are careful and find the right deals it doesn't have to break the bank. (Even as a skint student I managed to find a vacation that suited my budget) Here we have gathered together all the best deals we can find on holidays, equipment, clothing and much more so that it is easier to source bargains without having to sacrifice quality.

Skiing is a totally unique experience that myself and thousands of other people worldwide are addicted to. If you have never tried it before, it is never too late. You don't even need to go abroad to see if it is for you. Find you're nearest dry ski slope or indoor snowdome here, both excellent places to learn the basics. Alternatively you can visit any of the 5 centres in the Scottish mountains that are capable, on a good day, of sending the same shiver down your spine as you get when you are in the Alps.
