Looking for info on skiing the Alps in January
Posted December 1st, 2011 - 8:35 pm by from Bristow, United States (Permalink)
I'm backpacking around Europe for the next few months. I'll probably be around the Alps around January. Anyone have any budget tips for skiing? Where should I go? Where should I stay? How do I get there? Any tricks to get cheap rental gear?

Does anyone know if I can find any good package deals (transportation + pass + rentals) anywhere in Switzerland? From Zurich would be great. Is there any after ski activity - is it better to stay at the mountain after? How much might a day of skiing cost roughly? I'm assuming conditions should be good everywhere next week. Any deals out of Lyon, France?

Thanks for the help, Ed

Hello Ed, I notice you wrote this in 2012! But I'm wondering how you went - I am now in the same boat as you were.

I'm in Europe and have January off to go skiing for potentially the whole month! I can go anywhere in Europe. I'm certainly on a budget, but I also want diversity for the month if possible...

Ideally I want like what Queenstown is to New Zealand... Cheap hostels, buses regularly to different hills, can hire gear...

Any advice?

How was your time?

Cheers for the help!
