Top ski resorts in Europe

There are a lot of ski resorts to choose in Europe and the Alps especially and while some of them are slightly better than others, it really comes down to what you are after!

St. Moritz

St. Moritz has hosted the winter Olympics twice already, so you know it's not a bad place for skiing. There are over 200 miles of groomed slopes and over 300 sunny days a year, so there is plenty of good skiing to be done.

Chamonix

Great place for a late ski holiday even in April. There will still be some snow in the higher slopes and you can basically almost ski in a t-shirt. Mind you, you better use some sunscreen or you'll burn up nicely in the spring sun! Also I would recommend an early start as the slopes get quite slushy in the...

St Anton am Arlberg

If you're after some epic Après-ski, then look no further. You will drink shots, you will dance on tables with your ski boots and there will be debauchery! Enough said!

Courchevel

Courchevel is the most luxurious of the three main ski resorts in Three Valleys ski area (worlds biggest ski area); and as such it is also a bit more expensive. But hey, there are horse drawn carriages to get you around, so you can't really complain. It is definitely quite a nice place to spend a week, or...

Val Thorens

Val Thorens gives you access to the Three Valleys ski area, which has over 370 miles of groomed slopes, making it worlds biggest connected ski area. So you can ski for days without visiting the same slope twice. Val Thorens has plenty of reasonably priced accommodation options and great après-ski...

Courchevel 1850

Alright, so actually it is only at 1,747 metres not at 1850, but lets not split hairs here. There are two six star hotels (called palaces) at Courchevel 1850, and there are only eight in whole of France! So that should give you an idea of what the place is about...

Levi

Levi is the biggest ski resort in Finland, with nice slopes for beginners and intermediate skiers, more advanced skiers should head to Alps. The reason for this is that there are no proper mountains in Finland, the top of Levi reaches only 531 m above sea level. But there is dog sledding and good chance...

Meribel

Meribel ski resort sits between Val Thorens and Courchevel in the Three Valleys ski area (which by the way is worlds biggest). Some of the accommodation offers very easy access to the slopes. And even if you aren't actually staying here, but in one of the neighboring villages, it's a nice place to stop...
