Planning a ski holiday can be a lot of fun - and if you want to ensure the getaway goes without a hitch, there's a lot to do before you take off for the mountains. For example, you need to find cheap ski hire, stock up on winter clothing, get your lift passes and find accommodation. One of the toughest decisions you'll have to make is which resort to go to. The Alps offer so may options, it can be hard to choose the best destination. But, if you're having trouble making a selection, you might want to consider one of the award-winning resorts.

In some cases, a new lift means a whole new set of runs opening up - and all-new challenges for you to try.
