Ski Resort Parking

Next week I'm heading over to Val D'Isere for a course. I thought I would save some money by staying with a friend in Tignes and making the short drive to Val each day. However it looks like any savings will be more than eaten by the cost of car parking. In Tignes the parking is 15 Euros per day or 75 Euros per week, whilst Val D'Isere is very slightly cheaper. This includes the outdoor parking which used to be free in Val.

In Les Deux Alpes, where I am now, and in Andorra where I was last winter, there is plenty of free parking for both holidaymakers and seasonnaires. My last couple of visits to other resorts were to La Grave and to Hintertux, both of which had free parking. It seems there is quite a difference between resorts on this front so I am curious as to what parking charges are like in other ski resorts.

Please share your experiences of resort car parking in the comments.
