While we love all the modern conveniences of ski holidaying in 2017, such as underfloor heating in the chalets and speedy chair lifts, we still get nostalgic pangs for days when skiing was a relatively new and exciting activity for tourists.

Nowadays, Wi-Fi is generally seen more as a necessity than a luxury, and while airports have traditionally been quite poor at providing passengers with an internet connection, it seems that things might be improving. Research from 2014 found that just two of the UK’s biggest airports provided unlimited free Wi-Fi, but looking at things in 2017, we found that 9 out of the 20 biggest airports offered this, including London Heathrow and Birmingham International.
