Ski Holiday Advice

People are always asking me where they should go on their next ski holiday.

There are so many ski resorts in the world offering all sorts of different options depending on what your requirements are. It’s such a tough question to answer until you find out exactly what requirements the person or people have:

Are they beginners, intermediates or expert skiers?
What kind of budget do they have?
Do they want something to do in the evening or like apres ski?
Catered or self-catering accommodation?
Traditional Alpine village with atmosphere or a ‘ski in ski out’ purpose built resort offering convenience?

All of these options are available to skiers and before advising on the best ski resort for someone you need to know this information.

If you start with the basics and have nothing else to go on then my answer would always be ‘somewhere with snow, ski lifts, a warm bed and at least one bar’! You can always have a lot of fun anywhere with those combinations. But of course we all want to know much more than that, and rightly so when we pay money and time to go skiing each year.

I wanted to compile as much information about ski resorts as I could, showing the differences between them and highlighting what resorts suited certain requirements.
I have based the ‘Ski Holiday Advice’ category on various criteria like best ski holiday locations, price, apres ski & nightlife, skiing ability, non-skiing activities, personal opinions and weekend ski possibilities.
