Eighteen months ago, Mathew Prior made a prediction. Launching the annual report on the ski business published by Crystal, one of the companies he runs as the boss of Tui UK's ski division, he announced that Andorra would increase its share of the market in the 2009/10 season. This was a bold statement, given that Andorra's market share had declined sharply in each of the four previous seasons. But he was correct: Andorra did have a better season.

There was a time when budget ski destinations were easy to identify, even without looking at the prices. Location in a country in the former Eastern bloc was a key indicator; an outdated lift system consisting of a network of drag-lifts and a few slow-moving, two-seater chairlifts was another giveaway.

A main street lined with thickset men trying to lure passers-by into the bars told the same story.
