the world's best skiing resorts for...
... value   ... variety   ... off-piste   ... off the beaten track   ... traditional
Pas de la Casa, ANDORRA- Tax-free sums this resort up! This resort is however Benidorm on snow- beer and loud music. You have been warned! Courchevel, FRANCE SEE REVIEW- with 600km of runs- the world's largest ski area- there is plenty of terrain to keep everyone happy. The best skiing comes at a price though- expect to pay some of the world's highest prices! La Grave, FRANCE- La Grave, coincidence or not, is responsible for the highest mortality rate in the alps. There is no ski school, no marked pistes, no ski patrols. Skiing without a guide is suicidal. Nightlife is non-existent. Chacaltaya, BOLIVIA- At 5,420m, this is the highest resort in the world. There are a few nursery slopes, served by a rope tow. The oxygen here is THIN, so you need to be fit. Only open at weekends- during the week you maybe able to persuade the warden to open. Only come here if you want peace and isolation (and nothing else). Zermatt, SWITZERLAND SEE REVIEW- during the summer, this place is swarming with tourists. Thankfully the slopes are crowd free during the winter. Best suited for intermediates with an expensive taste and a taste for luxury.
... groups ... couples ... families ... on a budget ... money no object
Borovets or Pamporovo,  Bulgaria- its popular for young people, probably due to the cheap beer and skiing.

Saalbach Hinterglemnm, Austria- great bars, good nursery and intermediate slopes and a good ski school.

Saas Fee, Switzerland SEE REVIEW- this picture card setting makes it one of the most romantic villages in the Alps. It has designer shops and candle-lit restaurants. Plus its car-free.

Flaine, France SEE REVIEW- great beginner slopes and all pistes finishing in the same area makes meeting up easier.

Les Gets, France- has easy slope access and a good ski school.

La Plagne, France SEE REVIEW- miles of easy runs and easy access. The high altitude virtually guarantees snow early season- when its cheap to go.

Poiana Brasov, Romania- lots of cheap bars, cheap skiing, lots of runs for intermediates and a great snow record.

Valdez, ALASKA- the host to the annual World Extreme Skiing Championships. Nowhere comes close to Valdez for steep, deep and extreme. There are no lifts- the terrain is too inaccessible! Only way to the top is by helicopter, which will set you back about £3000 for a 6 day heli-pass.
... après ski   ... self drive   ... beginners   ... going with the experienced   ... freeriders
Soldeu, Andorra SEE REVIEW- cheap drinks, lively bars with live bands. However, it tends to have a reputation for being 'downmarket'.

St. Anton, Austria SEE REVIEW- lively bars straight after skiing and clubs to dance the night away.

Chamonix, France SEE REVIEW-Its location is one of the easiest resorts in the Alps to reach. Calais is just 8 hours (and £32 in motorway tolls) away. If you're flying, you can reach Chamonix from Geneva in just an hour. Breckenridge, USA SEE REVIEW- Extensive nursery areas. The ski school has an excellent reputation.

Courchevel, France SEE REVIEWThe Three Valleys has something for everyone, especially beginners. There are plenty of easy runs which funnel down to the base area.

Courchevel, France SEE REVIEW- great choice of ski schools and lots of terrain to choose from.

Val D'Isere, France- SEE REVIEW has something to offer for everyone.

Chamonix, France SEE REVIEW- Fantastic- anyone can and does go here for the offering.

Zermatt, Switzerland SEE REVIEW- This is the place in Europe to freeride- provided you have the money to spend! There are great heli-boarding opportunities.
