Bulgaria is best for Britons looking for affordable ski trips, according to a TripAdvisor survey.
But Austria is to be avoided for those on a budget, with the resort of St Anton proving the priciest of 42 European ski centres surveyed.
TripAdvisor looked at resort costs for a family of four having a week-long trip, including hotel, ski passes, ski hire, ski lessons, evening meals and drinks.
Bansko in Bulgaria was the best-value resort, with the whole package costing £1,631. This compared with St Anton, where the cost was as high as £5,026.
After Bansko, the next best-value spot was the Sierra Nevada in Spain (where costs totalled £1,930), followed by Sochi in Russia (£2,205), Berchtesgarden in Germany (£2,476) and Ordino Arcalis in Andorra (£2,504).

"This year, Eastern European destinations and Andorra are where families will find the best value for money."
