Saving money on the slopes

A holiday on the slopes doesn't have to be expensive

Posted: 1 August 2011

The ski season is upon us and there are plenty of easy ways to control costs without losing the luxury:

- Ski in up-and-coming destinations outside the popular eurozone, like Bulgaria, or duty-free places like Andorra. A smaller resort like Nendaz in Switzerland has great prices for eating out and après-ski.

- Buy ski suits in neutral colours for your children so you can hand them down to siblings. Dare 2 Be has 
great offers on children’s skiwear.

- Book an apartment instead of a chalet and take turns to cook; a week in January at the Résidence Cybèle in the Méribel Valley costs from £269 per person from Gatwick, based on eight sharing an apartment. Tel: 0800 358 0448 or visit

- Persuade a grandparent to come along – one granny’s flight and accommodation is less expensive 
than the children’s club every night.

- Pack a picnic for lunch and avoid the mountain restaurants – preparing a few baguettes with ham and cheese 
for the backpack is no hassle.

Hello friends. I have a question about the protection of crypto currency and saving my money.. I read that now there is a mixer for bitcoins, which helps make your coins clean and anonymous. Have you ever made transactions with coins after cleansing with a mixer for bitcoins?
