We all need to get out once in a while and leave our daily lives behind us sometimes. To go on holiday is the best way to do so, as it can really be the most enjoyable form of escapism. If you are lucky enough to go on an overseas trip, then they can enable us to focus on a new surrounding allowing the opportunity for unique experiences. Some families might look into more activity-based holidays, some prefer to travel and see as much as they can while on vacation, whereas others just want to relax and recharge their batteries.
One of the best ways to enjoy a holiday with the whole family is to go on a vacation in a ski resort. There are many offers available online or at one’s local travel agency. Do make sure to book well in advance as such trips are becoming increasingly popular. The great thing is that they offer many options. Whether it’s skiing, snowboarding, sledging with the kids or just hiking in the mountains and enjoying the beautiful nature, skiing holidays offer it all. After an active day, relaxing in a cozy resort, drinking hot tea in front of a fireplace really rounds everything off perfectly.
Some popular destinations Since Britain isn’t the ideal place for a skiing trip, going abroad is the only choice. Various places in central Europe like Germany, Austria, Switzerland and France are of course known for The Alps and host the most famous and idyllic slopes. Amongst the most popular regions are:
Valfréjus, France: A skiing resort in the region of Savoie, south-east of France, located at an altitude of 1,550 meters on the mountain Pointe du Fréjus. It is a very popular skiing destination among French people and foreigners alike but thankfully and there are attractive ski packages available for Valfréjus.
St Anton, Austria: Located in the very West of the Austrian alps, St Anton offers nearly 200 miles of slopes on an altitude of approximately 1,300 meters. St Anton hosted the Alpine Ski World Championship in 2011.
Verbier, Switzerland: Verbier is part of the French-speaking district of Valais in the south-west of Switzerland. Some of the areas there are completely covered with snow all year long, so if you couldn’t make a skiing break during the school holidays, then there is still time to go for Easter!
