I went to Verbier in 2010 for the Xmas week in Les Quatre Saisons catered chalet with flights £500, lift pass £250 and £200 drink & lunch money.

Me too but it does fail on your criteria of lift queues Tony - worst waits I've had were the mornings in Verbier
That said it was New Year so I'd be willing to give it another go

Just back from Switzerland after a sensational week, yet again. And it cost LITTLE MORE than a regular ski holiday week normally does to anywhere else I have managed to go to, and included top quality food and as much drink as you wanted (Club Med). Ok you have to put up with crappy European evening entertainment later on, but go to bed at a sensible time for the next days first lift and it doesn't intrude on your enjoyment.
Lunch on the mountain included every day as well.
Scheduled flights from Heathrow with Swiss so free ski carriage as well.
Anyway, for those of you who still think its too expensive, carry on going where you like going in order to keep the Swiss slopes virtually empty all day every day. Thats the way I like it.
Its all about choosing the right deal or package I guess, and then getting extra lucky with snow while you are there. Have to say this was only my 2nd Club Med holiday, but in terms of location and VFM I really think you'd struggle to beat it.
And thats precisely why we picked St Moritz as its renowned for being expensive, along with Switzerland generally, but you can manage a top resort at a sensible price if you work hard enough at searching out the deal.
I have to agree however, that everything in Switzerland IS very expensive though.
6 of us stopped for a drink in the mornings and it was normally around 40CHF so approx £5 a drink on average (2 x Gluhwein, 3 x Latte and 1 x Chocolate with rum). I've paid more in France......
