Log in to snowHeads to make it MUCH better! Registration's totally free, of course, and makes snowHeads easier to use and to understand, gives better searching, filtering etc. as well as access to 'members only' forums, discounts and deals that U don't even know exist as a 'guest' user. (btw. 50,000+ snowHeads already know all this, making snowHeads the biggest, most active community of snow-heads in the UK, so you'll be in good company)..... When you register, you get our free weekly(-ish) snow report by email. It's rather good and not made up by tourist offices (or people that love the tourist office and want to marry it either)... We don't share your email address with anyone and we never send out any of those cheesy 'message from our partners' emails either. Anyway, snowHeads really is MUCH better when you're logged in - not least because you get to post your own messages complaining about things that annoy you like perhaps this banner which, incidentally, disappears when you log in :-)

Which way it goes is entirely on what comes on Deal or No Deal ..

Agreed, but the only losers are the Forex traders. In reality the UK skiers will benefit from spending less in the resorts.
Savvy UK ski families will drive out to French resorts, go SC, buy up there Duty Free en-route, and ultimately spend less in the resorts.
Skiing is not about a sliding exchange rate! More about what do you really want to buy when on a ski holiday.

For me its a toss up between Pepis Skihotel in STA, or Hotel Albona Nova in Zurs fror the Xmas ski jolly.

I don't think you've quite grasped how this currency stuff works.
I you think making things more expensive for the proud English people will make them spend less, then you could just donate 10% of all your spend to charity and achieve that saving today. Or donate all of it, ans spend nothing on ski holidays. And don't expect to pay for those "jollies" using SEPA.

You miss my point.

It does not matter what the Sterling exchange rate is, the overall costs of my skiing will remain similar.

How I choose to spend my Sterling equivalent will ultimately mean that I have less "disposable" to play with after I pay for the necessaries like flights, transfers, hotel, food, lift-pass, and vodka.

As I've previously said, Mrs Skimastaaah may not buy a new ski suit from Strolz's sale at Easter. I'll keep my ski-quiver for another season without buying new. I'll resist the rather expensive wines at my favourite eateries, and buy something less expensive.

It is the cumulative costs of what I choose to spend that will adjust downwards, and not just because of Sterling/Euro exchange, but because after paying for the necessary items that are crucial to a ski holiday it is what I have left in my (substantial) budget that will change so as to not over spend. Therefore the total cost of ski holidays really do not change. Maybe 10 beers and a couple of bottles of champagne less per week, that's all it means. Toofy Grin

@stanton, Having just paid £31 per person ( yes, you read correctly ….. THIRTY ONE POUNDS PER PERSON) for return flights Heathrow to Innsbruck in April 2020, next season's skiing is going to be considerably LESS expensive.

I've just booked to go out to Les Arcs at the end of October/Early November and it turns out to be incredibly cheaap. Return flights are less than £50 ach and a weeks car hire less than £100.

The main safing is the return flight on the 5th of November is under £10. No one wants to come the UK after the current Brexit date.

Its ok, he'll still always have annual travel insurance. And as for visas, I can't see that suddenly happening overnight and from memory it's already been stated that we won't need one. If we do it'll probably be a fiver at the post office. NehNeh

Found an interesting site yesterday, where you can compare various pricings in different countries. Compared to our nearest neighbours, the UK is one of the cheapest places to live. The savings we would make over a year of living in the UK far outweighs anything we could loose in currency exchange for a weeks holiday
