According to a study by TripAdvisor, Courchevel ski resort is the most expensive in Europe. On the flip side, Bansko in Bulgaria is the cheapest, where you can ski for “practically nothing.”
The travel review site TripAdvisor compared the prices at 41 ski resorts around Europe. The daily ski price includes lift tickets, equipment rentals as well as a meal, a night’s stay at a hotel and a beer.
It’s no surprise that Courchevel is at the top of the list as the most expensive, true to its reputation as a luxury ski destination. A day in Savoie will set you back an impressive £432! Méribel, Tignes and Val d’Isère in France also made the Top 10. Conversely, the cheapest ski resort in Europe is in Bulgaria. A day on the slopes of Bansko will cost only £104. The second cheapest is Sochi, the city gearing up to host the 2014 Winter Olympic Games.
If you’re looking for cheap ski trips closer to home, Andorra is a budget choice. Ordino Arcalis and Arinsal are great choices that won’t cost an arm and a leg.
