For the brave, for the spirited, ski holidays are a rush of excitement for those willing to hurtle themselves down the powdery slopes of white gold, whether you’re a beginner learning the ropes, a seasoned veteran or just looking to have fun in the snowy sun, you’re sure to have a great time manoeuvring the hilly dunes of snow – and when it’s all done, an ice cold beer will be waiting for you at the bar. It isn’t all snow and ice however, with so many ski destinations from the USA all the way to Australia, each country offering differing cultures; you may find yourselves spending more time on the party sauce than on the snow!
Party on the Pyrenees
Europe is home to a number of skiing holidays, and with resorts in Spain and around the Alps in France, you can be sure that there’s some partying to be done in the snow-capped mountains of the Alps and Pyrenees – for those who prefer a different kind of piste! You’ll feel as though you’re in another world huddled up in one of the many bars that litter the ski resorts, everyone’s chirpy and it’s a different atmosphere to your traditional clubbing capitals, but a night on the slopes will have you lift-licking by morning, that’s certain, wherever you decide to head. If you are looking to party then skiing holidays in France offer a diverse range of options for anyone looking for a sloshing good time.
There’s Snow-where Better
For the veterans who find they keep coming back for more, there really is nowhere better than being on the snowy peaks of the most picturesque mountains around. Breathing in the fresh air as you stand in the ever-growing golden tint that creeps up over the horizon is a breath taking experience you’ll never get tired of, and locations from Austria to Canada will ensure you really get a varied taste to add to the palate of ski holidays as you make your way around the world’s best mountains. Take a look at some Canada ski holidays, famed for quiet mountains and incredibly high quality resorts; here you won’t have to worry about the service ruining the perfectly formed mountains you’ll undoubtedly be traversing down.
Boarding for the Brave
Whether you’re a group of young fun seekers, a family looking to get away or the enigmatic expert who skis the black slopes of Andorra, chances are there will be at least one or two who want to try out snowboarding. Many consider snowboarding more of a challenge but you’ll find these variations at any of the top ski slopes, such as Switzerland. The great thing about any skiing holidays are that they will provide a photo book of memories in an untypical setting, making for a unique and diverse time away from the hustle and bustle of cities and towns found elsewhere in the countries – the perfect escape from normality for any Switzerland or Andorra ski holidays.
Beyond the Slopes
You’ll find a range of things to do away from the slopes, and there’s no better place to search than in Norway and Italy. These two countries are ideally located for fantastic sights; skiing on the Dolomites will give you panoramic views of northern Italy, whereas sledging with huskies in Norway can take you north to see the northern lights, a climactic occasion that will never fall short of amazing even the well-travelled traveller. During all of your ski holidays you will come across paragliding to take in the slopes from a bird’s eye view, while Austria ski holidays, among others, introduce you to some of the top spa facilities among sun-splashed mountains to relieve the tensions of anyone struggling to come to grips with the ski-blades.
