1.Zermatt – Picturesque Perfection

Zermatt is the best ski resort in the whole of Europe. The runs are beautiful and have fantastic panoramic views of the Matterhorn, and the town itself is beautiful with all the wooden ski chalets and little churches which you would expect from a European resort. Switzerland is very expensive, so it’s not the best for a tight budget, however it’s very family friendly and worth the expense. Explore more

2.Whistler – The Snow Chaser

Whistler is one of the most famous ski resorts in the world. The snow is fluffy and the runs are perfect. It’s also very easy to get to and organise because English is the native language. If you’re going to make the trip, then you might as well stay for longer than a week. It’s very expensive to fly all the way out there (from the UK), so it is a trip for those special occasions when you really want to treat your self. Explore more

3.Tignes – The Student Party Animal

Tignes is student central for skiing. It’s budget accommodation and guaranteed snow with a rioting night life. it’s definitely not a picturesque village, since most of it is high-rise apartments, but if you’re on the slopes all day then who cares? Explore more

4.Norway – The Powder Junkie

For complete powder junkies, Norway is the place for you. One of the unusual countries to go skiing, but the snow is always there, and skiing down fjords while being able to see the sea is an amazing experience. It does get very cold however, and the apres-ski is pretty dead, but if you’re just there for the skiing then I couldn’t think of a better place. Explore more

5.Atlas – The Adventurous Soul

Skiing in Africa??Is that a thing? Wouldn’t you know that the skiing in the Atlas mountains of Morocco is some of the best in the world. A quick flight away from London, the snow of Africa awaits, with maybe rather limited safety facilities (eek!), the ski scene is surreal. It’s amazing to get your skiing in and experience a totally new culture, and everyone will be saying to you: “You skied where?” Explore more
