Top Ski and Snowboard Destinations
Winter is the time for an adrenaline fueled adventure on the snow and what better way than hitting a top European destination?! This is one of the most serene ways to interact with nature and explore the virtually untouched outdoors. These are our hottest chilly winter destinations:
A French speaking ski town in western Switzerland that can compete with the best ski resorts in the world. Known more for it’s slopestyle and free style riding rather than the hardcore ski alpinism. With over 254 miles of slopes and off-piste zones you’ll find something new every time you visit. To push truly yourself to the limits head to the Bec des Rosses, this hairy 50-degree face is guaranteed to hit your adrenaline muscle.
Åre is one of Northern Europe’s largest and most well established alpine resorts, including skiing and snowboarding from jaw dropping black pistes and delicate off-piste slopes to a wide range of easy skiing for children and beginners. For those who wish to DEFY there are a wide variety of heli-skiing options available to allow you to carve fresh powder from the normally unreachable locations.
Widely known as the pedigree of the Alpine adventure scene since 1760, it firmly established itself as a world class ski resort while hosting the winter Olympics in 1924. Chamonix offers the perfect holiday for the true adventure seeker, nothing about this resort is effortless but when you make it to the top off an empty mountain, all will be worth it.
Gstaad offers much more than an awesome place to carve out incredible lines and show off your skill. It is more of an experience, often known as the last paradise in a crazy world. A family could easily tackle this resort as you will have slope for all levels.
