Hi, just wondering if anybody can give me some advice on where would be best to go skiing in Europe.
I will be in a group of 6 backpacking through Europe during December 2014 to mid January 2015. We'd like to go skiing for about 4 days somewhere not too expensive as budgets are a little tight.
We'll be passing through Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Italy, France and Spain, so somewhere along this route would be ideal. Are there any nice skiing areas that are easy to reach, with affordable accommodation (are there any hostels in skiing areas??) and ski gear hire?
Several of us have been skiing before, but most are beginners so places where the slopes aren't too extreme and where lessons are affordable would be great.
