Ski Europe



The countries of Europe provide arguably the best skiing in the world when it comes to tradition and pure variety of snow types. From Austria and Switzerland, the birth place of champions, to the cradle of skiing in Norway, along with relative newcomers to ski and snowboard tourism of Bulgaria and Slovenia.


European Ski Resorts can cater for such a wide range of skiing and snowboarding. Families are well catered for with resorts providing creches and schools for youngsters and there are likely to be more affordable countries to visit closer to home.


Experienced traditional winter sports enthusiasts can visit the downhill runs and slalom slopes that their sporting heroes compete on while young skiiers and snowboarders can get their thrills on a growing number of ski parks. Off piste and cross country fans also have a vast number of resorts and countries to explore.
