We’re certainly not short of snow this ski season. In fact, following the El Niño Effect there has been some massive snowfalls all over Europe, which have made for some great ski holidays already and, what’s more, there is still lots more ski and snowboard fun to be had!
The following five resorts have definitely been home to some big snowfalls this year. So, if you are thinking of booking a snowy ski holiday in the next couple of months, then look no further.
Check out the following five resorts and see which one takes your fancy!
1. Val d’Isere, France
Snowfinders posted some absolutely amazing photos of Val d’Isere following the El Niño Effect in January, and, just so you know, the resort is still covered in a carpet of snow.
Not only is Val d’Isere the perfect snow trap, the resort is suitable for all levels of skier and snowboarder. Whether you are a complete beginner or a seasoned off-piste adventurer, Val d’Isere is for you.
An interesting fact everyone should know about Val d’Isere is The Espace Killy is a huge area with 300kms of pisted runs over the resorts of Val d'Isere and Tignes, and it is named after Jean Claude Killy, a famous French Olympic skier, who was brought up in Val d’Isere.
Saas Fee, Switzerland
A beautiful, ‘chocolate-box’ Swiss village, Saas Fee simply becomes more picturesque with such fantastic snowfall, like we’ve had this year.
If you’re looking for a ski holiday in a true winter wonderland, then Saas Fee is for you. It is absolutely perfect for beginner and intermediate skiers, what’s more, it’s traffic free!
St Anton, Austria
Snowfinders have some impressive photos of St Anton following El Niño.
St Anton offers the perfect balance of skiing and après ski. If you like to party hard and are a competent skier, then you’ll be tempted by St Anton.
The Arlberg area is renowned for the heavy snow falls and so snow conditions are usually very good. This year then, they’re brilliant! We’ll still be skiing here well into April!
Alpe d’Huez, France
The 21 hair pin bends of Alpe d’Huez are well worth a visit- especially after this year’s heavy snowfalls!
The Alpe d’Huez has an absolutely huge beginner area and is also loved by experts, so everyone is a winner!
Les Arcs, France
Like the Alpe d’Huez, both beginners and experts are well catered for in Les Arcs.
What’s more, the resort is definitely no stranger to snow. In fact, the Les Arcs ski area is snow sure with a large proportion of the skiing at, or above, 2000 metres.
It comes as no surprise then that the ski season is long in Les Arcs (particularly this year!).
