I suspect all package companies will supply you with a lift pass, but I dont think it will be discounted - pretty much the same as if you walked into the ticket office and bought it.

Given holiday companies are going bust, I would stick to packages if I were you - at the very least pay by credit card so you get their protection if you dont get a package.

For a first time ski holiday, I would also stick to a package. You want to sign up to ski school and perhaps some of the apres-ski activities they offer too. 10 years in, I'm only just working out my favourite places in order that I can book a chalet and flights serarately.

LOADS cheaper if you book privately and separately but can be mighty tricky and stressful trying to get the flights and chalet booked for the same week, not to mention transfers which can be very expensive unless you are traveling in a group and can hire a whole minibus.

Lift passes are rarely discounted but skideals.com sometimes do offers which include a "free" lift pass but the prices are often inflated. If you are going to The Alps you can budget on a pass being anywhere between £130 and £200 resort dependant for a 6 day pass

Cheapest way is to book an apartment privately with someone - try a website like holidaylets or ownersabroad - then drive to France or Switzerland. That should save enough for lift pass - which are cheapest in the smaller French resorts.
