Get away to... the slopes

1st November 2002 at 00:00
If you haven't booked your skiing holiday yet, you're obviously a risk-taker. Esprit Ski has just the thing - a snow mystery trip from pound;299 per person per week. Book now - find out your resort and hotel when you get there.

Not quite that adventurous? Good news for Scots skiers wanting to get to the French Alps. Esprit has direct flights from Edinburgh to Chambery, and there's no supplement if you book by December 1. Prices are from pound;399 per person for December 22 departures to La Plagne, including return flights, seven nights' catered chalet accommodation and transfers.

And before southerners start grumbling, families able to fly from Gatwick can spend Christmas on the slopes of Puy St Vincent. The adult price of pound;459 per person (based on two sharing) includes seven nights' catered accommodation, return flights to Turin departing on December 22, and transfers, as well as skiing lessons and equipment for up to two children. The first child under 10 goes free and subsequent children go half-price when sharing their parents' room. This brings the total for a family of four up to pound;1,147.50.
