The love for skiing and snowboarding is widely shared among all winter-lovers around the world. As far as skiing in Europe goes, the ideal destination are without doubt the Alps. They stretch across several European countries, from France, through Switzerland, Northern Italy, Austria and into Slovenia. Not only is this mountain range ideal for family trips, adventurers with passion for extremes and dangerous situations will find plenty of opportunities to practice their favorite thrill.

 

Among the best locations for extreme skiing definitely belongs La Grave in France. However, it is important to note here, that this destination is for real experts only. Even the most experience hard-core skiers are advised to hire a guide initially to assist them when uncovering potential life-threats of the terrain. Furthermore, Chamonix in France is another dreamlike skiing spot, as it is home to Europe’s highest peak, the Mont Blanc. This resort counts for one of the most challenging in the context of European skiing.

 

Confident intermediate and advanced skiers are invited to enjoy the pleasures of St. Anton in Austria. This resort has approximately 160 miles of groomed runs and another 114 miles of of-piste.

 

Snowboard lovers may appreciate the courtesy of Davos, Switzerland. Here, the less experienced snowboarders are offered professional lessons in three snowboarding schools. As a bonus come a few fun parks, a coupe of boarder cross circuits, two monster pipes and even some night riding.

 

Cross-county enthusiasts are encouraged to visit St. Moritz in Switzerland. Here, anyone can enjoy the 117 miles of trails leading through the breathtaking setting of Engadine valley along the glittery shores of St Moritz Lake. Illuminated night trails, heated dressing rooms and a local famous ski school are one of the many advantages that will win the visitors to such an extent, they will refuse to leave this destination.
