Finding the Best Ski Resort For Your Holiday


If you are in love with winter sports and cannot do without a nice vacation somewhere you can practice them, you need to invest some time in research for the best resort. This doesn’t have to be a daunting task, as long as you know what to expect. After all, your destination should be different, based on your priorities. Here are a few of the most popular destinations that will meet your every need:

  • France – this is a trendy destination for British skiers and snowboarders. One needn’t wonder why that is so: the reason lies with the magnificent variety that the French Alps offer. There is literary a little something for everyone. From high-altitude resorts that are purpose-built, like Val Thorens, to less popular, but equally fitting for a pleasant ski experience places like Les Carroz, France is definitely a worthy destination. However, you must keep in mind that all of this comes at a certain price. If you think that your budget cannot take it, you best head somewhere else.
  • Switzerland – this country is very hard to beat in terms of colossal mountains and splendid scenery, such as the Matterhorn peak, Zermatt. It boasts impressive ski runs and captivating villages, which can turn your holiday from an ordinary one to a real winter fairytale. Again, as with France, visitors here should expect to pay top money for their visit. However, it is a common consensus that if you can afford it, you should not think twice about getting this five-star winter experience.
  • Austria – if you value picturesque resorts and a warm welcome, then Austria is right for you. A lot of the Austrian resorts have grown from farming villages and now provide warm hospitality and foot-stomping après ski. Even though there are no giant ski runs like in France or Switzerland, it does have convenient lifts and linked ski areas, which pack sufficient mileage. Popular resorts are Lech and St Anton with pistes that will fully satisfy your winter sports cravings.
  • North America – it is true that if you live in the UK, you will probably not be interested in making a huge trip to USA or Canada. However, if you do that, you will have a pleasant experience of groomed pistes, immaculate ski lifts and very few queues.
  • Italy – manageable prices, great food and lovely ambience are all the significant characteristics of Italy. It is a laid-back destination, which puts the focus on holiday relaxation, rather than sport. This means it is an excellent place for families.
  • Eastern Europe – the most budget-friendly ski vacation experience you can get lies with the resorts of countries like Bulgaria. In there, Bansko tops all popularity surveys and stands out as an affordable option for families and beginner skiers who would much rather ease themselves into the winter sport without breaking the bank. Cheap bills come as standard here, so that is definitely a thing to keep in mind.

Now that you know more about the most common destination for skiing, you can plan better for an epic winter adventure!
