Thomson Ski is offering a limited number of free lift passes to skiers and snowboarders booking holidays in Austria this winter.

The company's '2 for 1' offer is available when you pre-book one lift pass for a stay between Jan. 2 and 30, 2010. This deal is valid in all Austrian resorts served by Thomson, including big-name resorts like St. Anton where you can save up to £172 on a lift pass.

The lift passes will be awarded on a first-come, first-served basis - early booking is recommended. This offer is for one free local lift pass for every two adults in the party. It is only valid on new bookings for Austrian ski holidays, not on flight only, accommodation only, self drive holidays or scheduled flights. If you book online you will receive an additional six-percent discount on your holiday.

Both first-timers and experts will find plenty to keep them occupied on Austria's ski slopes. Its wide ski areas provide relaxed skiing at its best, while adventurous skiers can head to one of Austria's many red and black runs. Round off the day enjoying the world-famous Austrian après-ski, from its quaint Alpine restaurants to parties that go on long into the night.
