Skiers are looking for ways to make their winter holidays more affordable, particularly with the current record weakness of Sterling against the Euro and the Dollar. Italian specialists are making a special offer to ease the pain with 50 Euros spending money when you arrive in resort. There's also free ski/snowboard hire, free boot hire, free ski jacket, trouser and helmet hire, and even free lift passes and insurance. The company also is offering a free hour of ski or board tuition with an expert instructor included.

Interski is an independent tour operator specialising in the Aosta Valley in North West Italy with 27 years of experience. They operate in the resorts of Courmayeur, La Thuile, and Pila, carrying 14,000 skiers and snowboarders every year.

"We want to make it as easy and cost effective as possible for people to enjoy the Alps this winter, especially as the snow is so fantastic. Lift passes and insurance come as standard in all our packages, and if you take one of our half-board packages then breakfast, dinner and even a hot snack lunch at a mountain restaurant every day are included too. That way, you can enjoy the snow without worrying about your wallet," says Colin McIntosh, Interski's Managing Director.

The cash back offer is for any six- or seven-night package departing between 21 February and 28 March.
