Book a last-minute ski holiday and bag yourself a small fortune in savings as the ski season comes to a close. Let's face it, we all love something to look forward to, especially as the days are damp and cold, so having a holiday planned is not only a great stress-buster but exciting to work towards. A week of skiing, drinking quality wine and eating dinners with phenomenal cheese content are the foundations of a great ski holiday so here are three resorts you may wish to consider that are exceptional alternatives to the normal resorts:
San Cassiano: A charming little resort located in the centre of Italy's Dolomites range. A good place to start your search for accommodation is at the immaculate Rosa Alpina and ski the extensive Dolomiti Superski.
Val Thorens: A guarantee of great powder conditions as this resort is the highest resort in Europe. Try the Altapura, a contemporary French hotel that serves a mean supper.
Are: A Swedish ski resort full of blonde beauties and activities from dog-sledding to oversized hot tubs. The Copper Hill Lodge is superb and has a classic North American vibe.
