Snowboarding isn’t cheap. When you’re dropping £150+ for a week’s lift pass alone and beer is €7 a pint, it can start to be a bit too expensive to justify. And we’re not even talking hot-footing it over to the USA to relax in a hot tub in Aspen.
So you have two options. You could move to the mountains and then prices will start to seem normal…ish. However, if uprooting your life in search of shred is (understandably) not a viable option, you need to find a cheap ‘n’ cheerful alternative.
Often these resorts don’t have the swish accommodation, monster parks or vast piste area of other resorts, but they’re incredibly affordable and offer decent untracked pow.
We’ve found a whole host of resorts where you could easily spend a week for under £500 quid. So when your bank balance drops into dangerously low figures, you won’t have to put that shred trip on the back burner ’til next year.
