Ryanair, claims to be ‘Europe's favorite Ski airline, leading the way to the slopes this winter, with its lowest ski fares’, so check out their website for their latest deals (http://www.ryanair.com/en/ski-site). The low cost company flies from Stansted and Dublin to Grenoble, Salzburg and Turin, and from Stansted to Klagenfurt. A return flight from Stanstead to Salzburg, departing on Friday the 11th of February and returning on Wednesday the 16th costs just under £40 if you book before midnight on Thursday of this week.
Snow Jet (snowjet.co.uk) operates low-cost weekend flights into Chambery and is now doing the same from Stansted to Sion in Switzerland, informs the Daily Mail. Nendaz, Veysonnaz, thyon and Crans Montana are all within a 30-minute drive, while Verbier and Villars are only 45 minutes away.
Finally, who said sea and snow don’t go?
