Crystal has launched a new concept in ski holidays this winter - Crystal Ski+ includes vitually all aspects of your ski holiday cost in one up-front cost, meaning overall savings as well as less hassle getting organised in the resort.

The '+' means that each package includes everything you need to get on the slopes: flights, transfers, accommodation, lift pass, and ski hire. Packages are available to some of the company's most popular hotels, in locations close to the slopes.

Crystal is the largest ski operator in the UK and part of the TUI group which owns many other companies across Europe, including Thomson and First Choice in the UK, giving it huge buying power which it has also brought in the play to help drive prices down.

In the snow sure resort of Kaprun, CrystalSki+ with half-board accommodation is available at Hotel Antonius with prices from £639 (saving up to £231 per person) or at Hotel Toni with prices from £659 (saving up to £315) per person.

In nearby Zell am See there are half-board packages at the Hotel Romantik with prices from £699 (saving up to £236) per person or at the Seehotel Freiberg with prices from £679 (saving up to £175) per person.
