Sestriere, Italy. Sestriere’s high, northwest-facing slopes make it more snow-secure than its neighbours. And the terrain is more challenging than any of the other Milky Way resorts.
Saas-Fee, Switzerland. A beautiful resort in a picturesque setting, with a vibrant nightlife and fantastic family facilities. And it’s situated beneath a spectacular glacier.
Verbier, Switzerland. Verbier is the main resort in Switzerland’s largest ski area, the Four Valleys. With exciting terrain, a scenic location and vibrant night life, many sporty clientele can be found.
Zermatt, Switzerland. Ski whilst in awe of the staggering Matterhorn, which overlooks the village – you really will feel like you’re on top of the world.
Åre, Sweden. Based at 400m, Åre is the lowest resort on this list. But it’s not to be overlooked. Set in Sweden, it has consistent snowfall throughout the season, plus you can snowmobile on the frozen lake in the evening.
Whistler, Canada. Canada’s premier, year round destination (because of the glacier), Whistler features two majestic mountains with a vibrant base village.
Val Thorens, France. The highest resort in the Three Valleys and indeed Europe, Val Thorens (2300m), has a variety of runs suited to all levels of skier. Relax on the sun-strewn balconies one afternoon after trying out the glacier.
