Few holidays can conjure the winter magic of a skiing break in the stunning mountain scenery. Whizzing down the slopes of perfect powder snow with the sun beating down through clear blue skies and the distant view of postcard-pretty villages far below is one of the most exciting family holidays and a perennial favourite of so many of us.

However it’s important to get the right resort, for example if you are:

  • A family taking young children skiing for the first time then you may want to look at the family-friendly resorts of Alpach or Flaine.
  • A regular looking for the toughest black runs to test you to the max then St Anton or Jackson Hole could be ideal options
  • A keen boarder in search of the finest powder snow then why not try the beautifully maintained slopes of Whistler in Canada
  • Looking for a resort where the skiing is good but the apres-ski is even better in which case Verbier may be the place for you.

Throughout the resorts there is a huge variety of luxurious hotels, stunning private chalets and stylish apartments to suit every taste, skiing ability or budget. If it’s a whistlestop weekend then you may just want to be pampered in a luxury St Moritz hotel or if you’re travelling with a group of friends or family then the privacy of a Klosters chalet may suit your better.

As for saunas and spas, restaurants or bars – however you like to spend your downtime when not pounding the slopes, then let us know and World Odyssey can help you find the perfect location for your next skiing adventure.
