If you’re flying to the Alps, luggage restrictions can seriously affect the price tag of your ski holiday. It’s something we sometimes don’t think about when booking a flight, but in some cases the checked luggage fees can be higher than the plane fare itself! That’s not to mention that many airlines just don’t accept ski equipment, or call it ‘special luggage’, make you book in advance and charge you an arm and a leg. Some airlines know where it’s at, however, and they’ve organised things to... Read more ›

There’s no denying it: skiing and snowboarding are expensive sports. A week of skiing can set you back a pretty penny, especially if you’re planning to ski with the whole family. Between accommodation, ski passes, ski lessons and rental equipment, the amounts can start to add up.

Fortunately, there is a solution: many lesser-known ski resorts in Europe of... Read more ›

Inspired by the indoor ski slope in Dubai, the “Ski Line” at Tignes would measure 420m and be located next to the Tichot lift on the Val Claret slalom slope. The proposal has met with backlash from local residents, who argue that an indoor ski slope would compromise the natural beauty of t... Read more ›
