Hello,

I'm planning my first ever ski trip for next month and I was hoping for a bit of advice.

Which ski resorts are good for beginners, with easy slopes and English-speaking instructors?

Is it cheaper to go all-inclusive or self-catering?

Do you get better deals with ski specific companies or comparators? I saw some interesting deals on this site: http://www.travelizer.co.uk/ski/france/ but don't know if it's a good/reliable site for ski deals.

All advice welcome! Thanks!

i'd recommend a seasonal rental, as a beginner you don't want to invest in purchasing skis until you are better. also make sure you get a helmet.
