Hi, skiing can be a very expensive hobby,particularly if you get hooked. There are ways and means to do it more cheaply though. Go outside of school holidays if you can (mid-March is a good time, as the weather is better, the snow good, and it is less cold. Bear in mind you will be tired at the end of the day, and will not feel like preparing your own meals. I would recommend a beginner went for a chalet holiday in a smaller resort. Don't waste money on the bigger ones like Val D'isere and Three Valleys. If you want anymore help, post or PM me the questions.
Domobianca for skiing is a great place to start. Its in North Italy, and suits all levels and ages. It is not yet an overpopulated resort, and has no on site hotels, but hotels are around within 15-20 mins, and most cater for them with a shuttle or transfer service anyway in the morning and afternoon.

ski instructors excellent, snow fabulous and guaranteed, and lovely setting.
I would stick to a resort with accommodation close to the slopes, it's a chore having to drive there every day. La Rosiere in France would be a good place to start or Claviere in Italy. If you fancy somewhere a bit bigger. try Serre Chevalier. Cheaper prices than the bigger resorts too.
If you want it cheaper, go self-catering and cook your own meals.
