It was incredibly difficult to find a good image that summed up ‘Opt for Half Board’, so we settled with this. If you don’t get it, we can’t be Facebook friends.

Self-catering deals are always a draw due to the lower price tag. But I will tell you this now:

Contemplating cooking a meal after a day on the slopes with several après ski pints on board will fill you with dread and you’ll either end up eating cereal and toast all week or saying screw the budget and eating out every night.

If you are motivated to cook, you should beware that nipping down to the local shop is not like nipping out to Tesco. Yes it will offer similar food options but with price tags you would expect to see on jars of caviar in Harrods.

Tour operators offer really good half board options that include breakfast and dinner. The food at the lower end of market might not always be gourmet but generally you’ll be treated to hearty meals such as spag bog and goulash that hit just the spot after a day on the mountain.
