Winter is on its way – which means it is about time you start waxing your skis or snowboards. And if you are wondering where to spend your winter holidays skiing and having fun under the sun, you landed on the right page.
Today, we are listing five of the best skiing places and ski resorts in Europe. We took some time to see the sites where snow is guaranteed – and where the fun never ends.
So, let’s begin.
Alpe d’Huez, France
Ski enthusiasts know it as the real paradise for people who love snow – and pros refer to it as the perfect winter skiing resort. The sunny climate and fantastic resort villages nearby (Huez, Ozen-Oisans, Vaujany, La Garde etc.) make this French ski resort picturesque and ideal for a winter break.
Resorts offer a variety of facilities harmonized with the natural resources and a full range of indoor and outdoor sports and cultural activities.
Saalbach Hinterglemm, Austria
This place is Austria’s largest ski resort – offering a stretch of 270-kilometer runs and even 70 modern lifts. There are some well-groomed slopes and masses of powder for everyone who prefers off-beaten tracks.
When you are not skiing in Saalbach Hinterglemm, you can enjoy tasting some of the dozens of local specialities.
Kitzbuhel earns the trophy of the most legendary sports destination in the Alps – and there are many reasons why. First, the town effortlessly combines vast tradition with sophistication – and second, it has a long sporting tradition with a variety of sports from golf in summer to skiing in winter.
All of this contributed to its worldwide reputation – and made Kitzbuhel a place of contrasts where pro skiers and fashion enthusiasts rub their shoulders in the designer boutiques all over the area.
St. Moritz, Switzerland
If you are planning on heading to Switzerland for your skiing holiday, a trip to Aspen can get you lots of skiing and adventures in the snow. There is everything from downhill to cross-country trails all making St. Moritz one of the best all-around ski mountains in the world and an excellent destination for shopping and nightlife.
On top of that, the ski and snowboard terrains are exceptionally groomed, and there is a wide skiable area with the longest run spreading across 6 kilometres.
Nested in the Dolomites, Cortina d’Ampezzo boasts 140 ski runs with over 50 miles of cross-country pistes as well. Many people praise it because of its après-ski scene which includes a lot of restaurants and bars with great music (and a lot of dancing).
This ski resort has been featured in many films, some of which including ‘Cliffhanger’ and ‘For Your Eyes Only’.
