There is a multitude of incredible ski resorts in Europe. Whether it’s the outstanding views, the quality of the slope, or the certainty of snow, there are a lot of options to choose from. Most resorts will have slopes for different skill levels, so don’t be put off if you are an absolute beginner.

Zermatt, Switzerland

You can ski on Zermatt all year long, as the altitude is so high. This makes for one of the longest slopes in Europe, which ends up in the local village. What makes Zermatt really special is the backdrop of the Matterhorn.

Cortina d’Ampezzo, Italy

If you are looking for a chic vacation filled with influencers and celebrities, try this resort in Italy. Located high up in the Italian Dolomites, you will be able to ski, shop and enjoy stylish places to dine. 

Courchevel, France

Courchevel is known for its size, with its interlinked ski resorts making it the largest in Europe. It is an ideal vacation for the whole family. The resort focuses on family dining and a range of evening activities.

St. Anton am Arlberg, Austria

For die-hard skiers, the Alberg region has more than a dozen super-expert runs. You can catch a ski lift right from the village that will take you to some of the highest and challenging slopes. Even the most advanced skiers still take a guide with them to the slopes. 

Zugspitze, Germany

Nestled in the Bavarian town Garmisch-Partenkirchen, this is a charming place for a skiing vacation. Catered to all levels, the beginner through to the thrill-seeker will find the perfect slope to enjoy. If you want to have a few lessons in ice dancing, try the Ice Stadium. Again, all levels welcome.
