Hello, everyone!

Europe is an amazing skiing destination. There is at least one venue to enjoy the ski almost in every European country. Although I am not an avid ski lover, I do enjoy a weekend getaway in a snowy mountain with good company. Switzerland, France or Austria are some of the countries that offer you the best skiing destinations. 


Vienna, the capital of Austria, is being regarded as the City of Music and is also the largest city of Austria. That for, Vienna might be the first to come in mind when speaking about Austria. But when it comes to winter holidays and locations for beginners or expert skiers, you can find in Austria some of the best skiing destinations and resorts.

Saalbach Hinterglemm is one of the largest ski areas in Austria with its numerous pistes and the snow-covered slopes.


St. Anton is another charming ski resort and a part of Austria’s biggest lift-linked area. But life in St. Anton doesn’t stop in the pistes, as the pedestrian zone calls for nightlife or for shopping. is all you need, your one-way destination to unforgettable winter holidays in St. Anton.


Switzerland and its skiing locations are famous around the world. Gstaad is one of the most luxurious ski resorts in Europe and one of the largest ski areas in the Alps. Although it’s a small village with a population of about 9,200 people, it is known for the mountain air, its luxury hotels, the picturesque promenade full of designer shops, restaurants, art galleries as well as its walking and hiking winter trails.


Zermatt is famed as a mountaineering and ski resort of the Swiss Alps. Also known as the “diamond” of the Alps, it is a favorite destination of the international jet set. Zermatt is famous for its excellent skiing facilities and its high gastronomy, as it has the highest density of gourmet restaurants in the world.


One of the world’s most famous winter destinations located in France is Chamonix Mont Blanc. From the mountain, the view is just overwhelming and the cosmopolitan atmosphere accompanies the ultimate beauty of the natural landscape. Old time classic luxury, five-star hotels with swimming pools and spas, gourmet restaurants, everything guarantee magical days and nights. At Chamonix, you can find the best ski and snowboard schools, excellent infrastructure on the slopes, slaloms on 160-km slopes, boardercross slopes and amazing fun parks.


Last, but not least, on our list is Courchevel. Built on 4 different levels, at 1,850 altitudes, the name of Courchevel has become synonymous with the good skiing and a cosmopolitan, luxury life. With ski tracks for every level, hiking activities in the snow, and hotels with direct access to the slopes, your skiing experience will never be the same.

As always, thank you for visiting and have a great day!

    I’m not a big skier.. Honestly, I don’t like the cold (and I live in Wisconsin… haha). But the views are stunning!

    Reading this makes me want to hop on a plane! I’m not much of a skier, but sitting in a ski lodge in Europe sounds amazing. My husband is European, so we go at least once per year. All of our trips so far have been during warmer months. Maybe we should plan a winter trip!

    I’d love to go skiing in Switzerland or Austria. I’m actually hoping to go to Europe after Christmas so I’ll have to keep these places in mind!

    Oh wow how lovely are these ski places. For me I would have to say Switzerland really is the stand out one xx

    I knew that Austria had some pretty amazing spots when it came to skiing. I have always intended on going out and getting lessons, but I think I would take on something a little easier before going there. Does look incredible there though.

    I am not one for skiing but the scenery is just gorgeous. Wonder if the lodge has hot cocoa? If so I’d be posted up in my cutest ski-worthy outfit, sipping like I am really there to do something. lol
