Everyone loves skiing or snowboarding, but it can cost a fair bit of cash to get yourself to resort.

Now, the coach journey isn't always as much of a drag as you might expect, but once that initial buzz of the trip has worn off, you're going to find yourself with plenty of time to kill. Here are some suggestions on how to do just that...
