Once the clocks go back it’s a sign that winter is on its way, the evenings get darker earlier and the temperature drops significantly.
Whilst some people will already be counting down the days until summer, lovers of winter sports will be excited for the start of the ski season, which gets underway this month and runs until the middle of April.
As the season starts to get into full swing we’ve put together our recommendations of the best countries for you to head to this ski season.
If you are looking for incredible views whilst you hit the slopes there is arguably no better place than Switzerland. Zermatt is home to the highest vertical drop in all of Switzerland and allows you to enjoy a view from the Matterhorn of the Alps in unmistakable detail.
The southern face of the Matterhorn skis down into Italy, which means that you can experience two countries in one day.
Home to the largest peak in Europe at more than 4,000 metres high, Chamonix is hard to ignore when considering the best location for your winter sports holiday whatever your level of ability.
Surrounded by glaciers, skiers can always count on proper weather to ensure there is cold, frozen snow on the slopes. The resort was also home to the first-ever Winter Olympics back in 1924.
Cortina d’Ampezzo, Italy
High in the Italian Dolomites, the town of Cortina D’Ampezzo provides a beautiful setting, as well as superb ski terrain.
Since the Winter Olympics were held there in 1956, Cortina became the preferred winter resort for many. As well as fantastic slopes it has the chic shops and entertainment venues you’d expect of a smart European ski resort.
