How to Choose a Ski Destination

Choosing a destination for your ski holiday can be extremely difficult; there is just so much choice nowadays, with quality resorts all over the world. Here are our top tips for helping you decide where to ski this winter;

·       Decide on a Budget – How much money do you have to spend on this trip? Do some research and shop around for deals and discounts, remember that you might need money for ski lessons and hiring equipment as well as food and travel.

·        Weather– If you’re desperate for snow you could book high altitude resorts, or you could compromise and head for a resort with man-made snow.

·        Skill level – If you are a beginner you will need to look at resorts with instructors, and beginner slopes. On the other hand, if you’re a seasoned skier you may want to head to resorts that offer a new challenge, or slopes with amazing views.

·        Who are you travelling with? – are you travelling as a couple? If so head somewhere romantic with great views. Are you are travelling with children? If so look for resorts which cater to their needs, for example ski school lessons and group activities for children to get involved in. Are you going on a group holiday? Head somewhere with great night life.

·        How adventurous are you feeling? –You need to decide whether you want a short break in Europe, or perhaps to head World Wide. It all depends on how adventurous you’re feeling and what your budget will allow.

Just remember, whether you are a beginner or a seasoned skier, travelling solo or with the family, it is absolutely vital that you invest in quality travel insurance before you depart.
