Some of our top Ski Resorts

Made a last minute decision to take that skiing holiday but undecided which slopes to hit?  At Garda Holiday and Travel Club, we’ve put together a list of some of our top resorts help your decision.

Zermatt, Switzerland
Considered by many to be one of the best ski resorts in the world, Zermatt plays home to one of Switzerland’s most famous landmarks – the Matterhorn Mountain.  Situated in Valais, the town combines a romantic old-world charm with breathtaking scenery, an authentic Swiss culture and cutting edge amenities designed to suit to all skiing levels.  And uniquely, this is a car-free resort, with travel only by horse-drawn sleigh or electric cart.

Best for: A romantic ski adventure – old-school cottage charm at its best.

Chamonix, France
Nestling in the shadow of Europe’s highest mountain, Chamonix hosted the first winter Olympics in 1924.  Expect to find all range of jaw-dropping cliffs, tremendous slopes and highly technical courses alongside a range of beginner options.

Best for : A Challenge! Hip adventure skiing, long runs and reliable snow.

Innsbruck, Austria
So much more than just a quaint ski village, Innsbruck is an entire cultural experience, complete with all range of attractions and events.  Expect everything from snowboard parks to theatres, winter hiking, museums, ice skating rinks, horse-drawn sleigh rides and imperial palaces.

Best for: Beginner and intermediate skiers.

Bled, Slovenia
While not your typical Alpine ski resort, the stunningly picturesque Bled is a favourite for those seeking a relaxing winter break.  It’s the perfect opportunity to combine quality skiing with a valley townside adventure, boutique shops and amenities.  While the main ski areas of Kobla and Vogel are just a half hour bus ride away, the well-maintained ski slope at Straza is just a few minutes walk from the city centre.

Best for: Family Holidays and ideal for first-timers!

Arinsal Andorra
A fab place for the young and lively to get their boards or skis tracking downhill for a few hours before setting off on the serious business of having some après ski fun.  Arinsal is an all-time favourite, now linked to nearby Pal giving it an extended area of skiing.  The snow is some of the best in Andorra with most of the slopes above 1900m and supplemented by snow cannons.
