Top 5 Places to Ski in the World
Whether you like it or not, winter’s annual arrival is inevitable. Even if winter isn’t your favorite season, you can still make the most of it by participating in activities you might not be able to engage in during other times of the year. Snowboarding, ice skating, sledding — those are all favorite pastimes for many, and they can still be fun-filled activities for you now, weather permitting.
Out of all the things you can do during the winter, skiing is the activity of choice for many travelers. For this reason, we thought it would be a good idea to compile a list of the top five places to ski in the world:
- Megève, France
- Gstaad, Switzerland
- Aspen, Colorado
- Vail, Colorado
- Park City, Utah
1. Megève, France
If you want to visit an unforgettable skiing destination, Megève, France should be at the top of your must-visit list. Megève has some fantastic restaurants and a nice variety of boutique shops where you can find souvenirs to remind you of all the fun you had in this winter wonderland.
The town’s slopes offer plenty of thrills — and potential spills if you’re not a very experienced skier — and their views are simply unbeatable. When you want to relax after a day on the slopes, visit the igloo spa in Hotel Mont-Blanc.
2. Gstaad, Switzerland
Gstaad is a resort village located in the Swiss Alps. While you’ll want to spend as much time as you can on the slopes, there are plenty of other things to do if you need a break. You can go for a ride on a dogsled, for example, or you can experience the Swiss Alps above the ground by taking a balloon ride while you enjoy some tasty champagne.
When you’re ready to grab a bite to eat, make your way over to HUUS. This popular eatery offers pristine views of the Alps that perfectly complement the food and beverages the restaurant serves.
3. Aspen, Colorado
If you want to ski by day and have some adult-oriented fun at night, Aspen should be your skiing destination this winter. When you’re in Aspen, make sure you visit Ullr Nights at Elk Camp on Snowmass to have some real winter fun. Don’t forget to try your hand at snow tubing and to go for a ride on the Breathtaker Alpine Coaster before you head home.
4. Vail, Colorado
If you can’t get enough of the Rockies, why not plan a return trip to Colorado so you can go skiing in Vail? Vail has more than 5,000 acres dedicated to skiing during the winter, which is just one of the many reasons why the town has been such a winter hotspot for more than five decades. Of course, the town’s fun events, restaurants, shops and the seven well-known Back Bowls only add to Vail’s long-standing popularity.
5. Park City, Utah
If you’ve been to Park City during the winter, then you already know why it’s on our list of the top five places to ski in the world. You can ski down the slopes all day and enjoy welcoming bars where everyone will soon know your name later on. You can also enjoy your favorite wine in one of the local wine bars or dance the night away in one of the city’s clubs.
