Value Ski Holidays - Recommendations
Our recipe for cheap skiing holidays and the best value ski holidays in France this winter!
Ski Collection specialises in 3 and 4-star self-catering ski apartments and hotels throughout France, offering you top quality ski accommodation but that doesn't mean you have to pay top prices. To help you save some pennies we have come up with recommendations for value ski holidays that could save you money this winter.
If you are looking for a cheap skiing holiday or you are tied to a particular budget this winter do check some of the examples below. We don't offer bottom of the range budget ski accommodation but we believe that we can offer you affordable quality at great value prices.
All our French ski resorts have high enough altitude and snow-sure ski slopes with mixed terrain for various abilities. All our accommodation has been selected and checked by our directors or members of the team so you won't have any unpleasant surprises.
We only use the leading ski schools and our ski equipment hire is with some of the most respected suppliers.
Value Ski Accommodation
Below you will find a selection of ski accommodation we have chosen as being great value for money. Remember all our self-catering accommodation is priced per apartment and not per person. Therefore if there is a large group then the price can be shared between you all.
Bourg Saint Maurice
Le Coeur d’Or is a great value 4-star MGM built residence that is realistically priced due to it’s location. Although Bourg Saint Maurice is not directly based on the slopes, the 'Arc-en-ciel' funicular reaches Arc 1600 and the massive Paradiski area in only 7 minutes.
Les Fermes de Sainte Foy is again a 4-star MGM built residence situated in this small village resort, which gives access to a smaller ski domain which doesn’t link to a major ski area but still affords plenty of skiing for a one week ski holiday. The skiing in Sainte-Foy is fantastic too for those who enjoy off-piste skiing.
Les Residences La Plagne 1800 are conveniently located near the centre of the resort of Plagne 1800, 250m from the slopes, ski school and nursery & 150m from the nearest shops. Facilities in Les Residences La Plagne 1800 include an outdoor heated pool, sauna, squash court, playroom for children and ski lockers.
Great Value Ski Lift Passes
Below you will find our selection of ski resorts that have cheap lift passes. Prices quoted are per adult and per child based on a 6 day ski pass.

Great Value Ski School with ESF
Ski school is an important ski extra for many skiers, whether it is for the beginner or for those who would like to improve their technique. Here are some of the cheapest ski lesson prices, based on 6 half day lessons. Lessons can be taken in the morning but the following prices are for ski lessons taken in the afternoon as these work out cheaper.
For more detailed information and pricing on ski and snowboard school and lessons, please see our Ski School Page and select a residence within your chosen ski resort.
Good In-Resort Prices
It is also worth considering what the in-resort prices are like for eating and drinking out. It is for this reason that the ski resort bible ‘Where to Ski & Snowboard 2014’ has listed the following resorts in their ‘50 Budget Resorts’, due to their good value for money within the bars and restaurants. You will see that La Rosiere is mentioned, which is one of our most popular resorts, particularly with families.
Great Skiing Deals
We price our holidays at the right level in the first place (we don't price up by 200% to later discount by 50%!) and we encourage our suppliers to give us great ski discounts whenever they have a few more apartments to sell. So why not take advantage of some great ski deals, including early booking offers, free night stays, late availability offers and general special offers:

Unlike other ski holiday operators, we don't charge fuel surcharges, under-occupancy supplements or ski & boot carriage fees. You may have to clean your self-catering apartment yourself or pay extra to have your ski accommodation cleaned, you may have to bring your own bed linen or towels or hire them locally but these should not have much impact on your overall ski budget.
