Have you thought of Northern Slovakia? I recently went to the Tatras mountains, only 5 miles from the Polish border which is ideal for skiing / snowboarding.

There are lots of slopes and it's dirt cheap but again, big resorts don't really exist in that part of the world. Most skiiers are locals/Polish - hand signals and a bit of German will get you a long way! But there are decent restaurants/bars and you won't find nicer people.

I skiied there in February - never skiied before so was a new experience for me and I loved it. My brother is an experienced snowboarder and my dad an experienced skiier and they also love it so it's good for everyone, and great snow. I found cheap ski lessons in English too.

You can fly by budget airline from London Luton and ski passes, kit etc. is very cheap (I paid 30 euros for a weeks hire of skiis, boots & 'sticks').

It's also an interesting part of the world, and has local mineral spas for those days off.

My dad rents a house there so if you need any more info on the region or you're interested in staying in a traditional slovakian house - PM me.
