Compiled using information provided by leading ski & travel experts, as well as TripAdvisor site data, the TripAdvisor ski destinations report has long been admired as a comprehensive guide to help holidaymakers get the best value ski holiday they can. TripAdvisor spokesperson Emma Shaw said “The TripAdvisor TripIndex Ski helps British travellers to identify which European ski resorts deliver the best value for money this season. Skiing is often thought of as an expensive holiday, but TripIndex Ski shows that there are destinations where British travellers don’t have to break the bank. The biggest driver of expense is clearly the price of hotels, but with all outlays there are remarkable differences between resorts across Europe.”
