Times are tough, but if you can’t bear to forgo your pilgrimage to the snowy mountains, do not fear – Skyscanner’s guide to getting to the slopes for less will help you ski on the cheap.

It may seem a little more daunting to put together a DIY ski trip rather than get a package deal, but independent ski holidays make up a massive proportion of the winter sports holiday market.
Why? Because booking independently can be cheaper, offers more flexibility, allows a more bespoke rather than mass tourism experience, and means you can tailor your trip to your personal ski holiday needs.
With snow falls seemingly becoming more erratic and snow cover less predictable these days, DIY trips also give the option of being able to book flights in advance, but hold back on picking a specific resort until nearer the time.
Saying that, by all means scan the package holiday pages, as good deals can be found.
The DIY Ski Trip Check list
Use Skyscanner’s simple checklist below to help you organise your DIY ski trip. For the average ski holiday, you will need to arrange:
3. Lift Pass
5. Extras: ski equipment hire, lessons, guiding etc
All of these components can be quickly and easily booked over the internet, often at a lower cost than as a package.
