The UK's largest ski travel agent, Iglu, offers some advice on making your money go further. NEW



1. Ski at the start of the season

Snow-sure ski resorts kick off the season early and open at the start of December.

These weeks are often the quietest of the season so there are always plenty of bargains to snap up before the Christmas and New Year peak weeks.

Be the envy of all your ski friends and be the first on the slopes next winter with a December ski holiday.

2. Book early for half price lift passes

Once you've booked your ski holiday the ski extras on top can add up and increase the cost of the holiday dramatically.

One of the huge benefits of booking early is the brilliant early booking deals and Iglu is able to offer half price lift passes on a selection of chalet and hotel packages.

Secure your holiday early with a £150 pp deposit and add on lift passes at time of booking to save over £100 per person on the lift pass.

3. Choose a short ski break

Whether you don't have enough time for a full week away or you want to squeeze in a cheeky second getaway to the mountains, ski weekends are now very popular and more tour operators are offering shorter breaks during the season.

Unique to next season, Iglu is offering a large selection of 5 day breaks in the first week of January - the perfect start to the new year!

Due to the way in which New Year ski holidays fall, this special week is an excellent opportunity so sample some of the most popular chalets at the fraction of the cost of a full week.

Some accommodations can be flexible with dates so if you are looking for a date that isn't offered on the website, speak to one of Iglu's ski experts and they can look into options to suit your needs.

4. Enjoy spring skiing

In recent years, conditions at the end of the season have been brilliant.

At the end of March and during April you'll find the best snow in high ski resorts such as Tignes, Val d'Isère, Val Thorens and Les Arcs.

We love skiing at this time of year and we've even seen powder days in mid-April. If you love quieter slopes, lunches on a sun deck, long ski days and excellent deals then a spring ski trip is for you.

5. Self-drive and try accommodation only

As well as package ski holidays Iglu have a large selection of accommodation only deals for skiers and snowboarders who wish to make their own way to resort.

This option is ideal for large groups driving to resort or for longer stays in resort. From chalets to hotels to apartments, Iglu offers a huge range of accommodation only holidays with many that can be tailored to your required duration.
