When it comes to picking your holiday, it can be a little tough to decide where to go. Do you want to go to some of the world’s most challenging slopes of France, to the family friendly slopes of Austria, or the scenic slopes of Andorra ? My family, myself, my wife and our 2 10 year old twins, have been skiing for the past 5 years, and we’ve tried a whole host of different types of locations. At this stage we are fairly competent in booking things ourselves, one tip I would give you is book things as early as possible, i.e. NOW !
Note: If you are reading this as first time skier, I would generally let a company organise everything for you, just to take the stress away from your winter holiday seeing as everything will be pretty new to you. You want to make sure you enjoy your holiday, and if it costs 10-20% extra for this comfort at the start, I would suggest paying for it !
My general strategy for picking where to go on holiday starts like this, we pick airport, then resort, then hotel. Going through these steps will help you to pick places where to go
Once you’ve done those 4 steps you can relax for a few weeks, and then start to think a little bit more about skiing insurance, clothes & equipment hire and all the other fun aspects that go with planning !
Here is a run down of 8 resorts you may have passed over, and are great for skiers at all levels :
All of these resorts are high enough to have pretty good snow through out the season, and are relatively easy to get to. They all have enough slopes to keep you busy, or have sister slopes very close.
I’d love to hear of your favourite places to ski, if you have any please do let me know in the comments.
