But for really cheap skiing you have to head for Eastern Europe. And for the best combination of low prices, reasonable facilities and a degree of political stability, the best current bet is Bulgaria.
Borovets is the most popular destination, with a fair range of skiing for novices and intermediates.
PLUS POINTS: unbelievably low prices; beautiful scenery; friendly people; good ski school.
MINUS POINTS: grinding poverty in the country as a whole; primitive medical facilities; dreary food; not very much else to do besides ski.
