Brittany Ferries has introduced a new range of ski-drive holidays to the French Alps.

Ski-drive holidays are available for six snow-sure ski resorts: Alpe d'Huez, Avoriaz, La Plagne, Les Arcs, Val d'Isere, and Val Thorens.

Packages include resort accommodation and ferry crossings. A seven-night break in Alpe d'Huez starts from £152 per person for a family of four with a car, including en-suite cabin accommodation on board the ship. There are plenty of additional extras to choose from too, like half-board, ski rentals, and car rentals. 

Mike Bevens, group passenger commercial director for Brittany Ferries, told OnTheSnow.co.uk: "Ski-drive makes sense. You simply pack your car - as much as you can fit inside - and go. Not only do you avoid all the hassle and expense of the airport, as well as car and equipment hire, you'll also enjoy much more freedom to drive around when you get to the mountains."

Skiers can get eight or nine nights for the price of seven at selected ski apartments for Christmas week rentals. All packages offer a choice of ferry crossing routes and itineraries.

It is compulsory to carry certain equipment in your car, including high visibility reflective jackets, a warning triangle, and a headlamp converter. You're also supposed to carry snow chains in the Alps even if you don't need to put them on.
