Not sure yet... either Les 2 Alpes, Flaine, Val d'Isere or Chamonix but could do a detour if needed. Trying to sort out a cheap 1/2 term break but prices are ridiculous

I've struggled to find a cheap half term break (I'm a teacher) to Val - just waiting to see if any of the TO prices drop to be sensible - but £1000+ that's crazy when you add on lift pass etc! If I hear of anything I'll post it here.

Yeah it's insane money. I'm doing a PGCE (mainly for the holidays) but I didn't realise how much more it costs to go skiing during these periods. If you find anywhere reasonable in Val let me know - I did a season there and would really like to return

School holidays are great overall, but you are forced to go away at the most expensive times. I don't normally go away at half term but I was in Australia at Christmas so I haven't had my "ski fix" yet! In general, I try and go away before Xmas/Xmas depending on how the holidays fall and Easter as these are more affordable.

I'm going to do a trawl of TO's again over the next couple of days so I'll let you know if I find anything.
