I have always loved the snow, even when it absolutely stops everything here in the UK when it happens. There’s something very ‘free’ about it and I love the light that it brings to everything, the contrast of the white and also I loved snowboarding in my teens. Unfortunately my knees did not take too kindly to snowboarding and now in my thirty-something years I have to accept that skiing is now the way for me.
You may have already thought about your ski holidays but I thought I’d have a look at my bucket list for the best destinations. Would love to know your favourite places in the comments below;
This is normally in everyone’s list and I feel like I am cheating a bit by having it here as it’s so obvious but I thought I’d get it out of the way. This was the first place I wanted to go to when I found my love of snowboarding but sadly it never happened. Once day I hope. This resort offers high quality, snow-sure slopes for everyone from complete beginner to veteran powderhound – perfect for snowboarding. Obviously I’d go here for a ski holiday but I might just have to board at least once here… right?
Another French location and one where I have heard so much from friends that I feel that I have been. It has been on many a bucket list as Chamonix does bring “le grand ski”. It has everything from beginner and intermediate but there is also something for advanced skiers too. I also realise that because I’ve not been on a ski holiday in a few years that I need to start looking for clothing.
There is something for everyone here and known to be great for families. It’s also a great choice for early and late season. There is also the Matterhorn.
This resort is so popular and definitely on trend for the No 1 ski location and I have absolutely followed along with that. It has a good mix of slopes and also is known for having a good party life too. Always seems like a good mix of ski holiday here.
Back to France again! This time we look at a place with Michelin stars and of course the largest linked ski area in the world. The snow in the whole of the Trois Vallées ski area suits every ability. There is so much to explore here but most stay within the Courchevel valley. It’s always been a place I have looked at with such envy.
Now, I really want to book a holiday or at least put plans in place to book one of these places real soon.
Drop a comment below with your favourite ski destination or maybe somewhere that’s really high on your holiday bucket list – I’ve so many lists!
