The no-frills airline, Ryanair, has launched three new routes for skiers this winter from London Stansted to Grenoble, Lourdes, and Cueno.

The new twice-weekly flights start from £10 one way including taxes and operate from Jan. 7 to March 25.

The new route to Grenoble will be particularly welcomed by UK skiers heading to the French Alps. Grenoble offers easy access to the surrounding resorts of Serre Chevalier, Alpe d'Huez, La Grave, Les Deux Alpes, Vaujany, Chamrousse, Brides-les-Bains, Autrans, Courchevel, La Clusaz, Meribel, and Les Menuires.

The Italian Alps is also well served by Ryanair's new London Stansted to Cueno route. Cueno offers easy access to the Italian resorts of Artesina, Frabosa Soprana, Garessio 2000, Limone Piedmonte, Lurisia, Prato Nevoso, and San Giacomo di Roburent.

The new route to Lourdes will be convenient for the French Pyrenean ski resorts of Cauterets, Peyragudes, and Luiz Ardiden.

Ryanair also operates flights to other popular ski airports including Milan, Klagenfurt, Madrid, Perpignan, Graz, Granada, Bratislava, Salzburg, Turin, Verona, Stockholm, Trieste, Venice-Treviso, Almeria, and Zaragoza.

The no-frills airline recently announced it smashed its past Christmas passenger records as more than 2.5 million passengers travelled on their flights between Dec. 23 and Jan. 4.
