Book your flights as well as your hotel, chalet, apartment, guesthouse or B&B at the best price and come to ski in the best ski resorts in Europe or a Canada ski packages. Choose a resort that offers appropriate level slopes for your party: there is little more intimidating for a novice skier than to be faced with red and black slopes slanting away alarmingly down the mountain! The other side of the coin is safer, but no less frustrating: for expert or advanced skiers to not be able to challenge themselves on the tougher steeper slopes. For a first time or family holiday with young or inexperienced skiers choose a resort that has easy access nursery slopes to build basic skills and confidence before trying the longer runs. Consider investing in a short course of ski lessons as learning the correct moves properly will lay down skills that will last a lifetime.
Check the amount of snowfall in the area before booking a holiday, especially if you are travelling very early or very late in the season. Some resorts suffer from periods of poor snowfall and may try to tempt the unwary by lowering prices. If a bargain looks too good to be true do a little research to find out why they might have discounted the prices quite so dramatically. Also check the safety record of any resort or ski slope that you may be considering although, in general, European ski resorts are bound by and abide by very strict safety regulations.
Many European countries offer skiing holidays and you may find it surprising to discover how much choice there is when it comes to choosing a skiing holiday destination – Bulgaria and Romania have recently invested heavily in their ski resorts, hoping to carve a larger slice of the tourism pie away from the traditional giants of the skiing holiday industry. Research will be your friend here, helping to find the perfect destination in an ideal and idyllic setting.
When choosing a ski resort do some research and come up with a short list of five to seven possible resorts. Read reviews on those resorts on your shortlist and make a list of pros and cons. A review by an expert skier decrying the lack of harder and more challenging runs can safely be ignored by novice skiers – or even count as a positive from their point of view!
Once you have a comprehensive and detailed shortlist it should be a relatively simple matter to choose one of the few as the perfect ski destination for you and your party.
