Europe boasts a lavish array of excellent ski holiday resorts and for UK snow sports lovers there are dozens of great destinations that can be reached within the space of just a few hours flight time. Among those options of course are the famous French Alps and the well-skied slopes of Austria, where the pistes are among the very best you’ll find anywhere in the world.
There are other old-favourites that remain the most popular places for skiing holidays in Europe like northern Italy and Switzerland as well but there are also several countries with a growing reputation for the quality of their resorts. Among these are the likes of Bulgaria and Andorra, where families from across Europe are increasingly spending their winter vacations.
Wherever you decide to visit on your next Europe ski adventure you’re sure to find a friendly welcome and an exuberant atmosphere. The reason for this is simply that there is so much fun to be had in the more mountainous parts of the continent when the nights draw in and the snow start falling. In fact, there is perhaps nowhere else in the world where snow sports are taken so seriously or regarded with such love and passion than Europe.
The great news is that British families, as well as groups of friends and individuals, have all manner of top-notch resorts virtually on their doorstep and you can find even luxury ski packages at reasonable prices without much difficulty at all. It is simply a case of checking out your options online and picking out what you feel looks like the perfect deal for you and your party. There are significant discounts offered for booking almost at the last minute and the quality of holidays available means you’re very unlikely to be disappointed with your trip even if you know very little about your resort or the region you’re visiting.
