Courchevel, France

Courchevel is part of Les Trois Vallées, which also consists of Meribel and Val Thorens. With 600km of pistes and 162 lifts in total, the terrain suits skiers of all ages and abilities, from complete beginner to professional.

Courchevel is not one resort village, but a collection of separate ones. The four most renowned are Courchevel 1850, Courchevel 1650, Courchevel 1550 and Courchevel 1300. They’re all conveniently linked by lifts, pistes and a main road.

Be sure to take the cable car up from Courchevel 1850 to the summit of Saulire and savour the views. Advanced skiers can then take the red and black runs all the way back down.

With nine five star hotels in total and numerous luxury chalets, it’s no wonder that Courchevel is a hit with those seeking a luxurious ski resort. After a long day on the slopes, skiers can dine in one of three Michelin-starred restaurants or shop in over 100 high-end boutiques.

St. Moritz, Switzerland

Glitz and glamour are not the only things you can expect from a visit to St. Moritz - the resort has long been incredibly popular with ski fanatics looking for a winter playground.

St. Moritz’s local mountain, Corviglia, is surrounded by 218 miles of ski runs and 58 lifts. A funicular railway can whisk skiers from the hub of the town into the heart of the slopes. Up here lies the renowned infamous men’s downhill racecourse, with a fear-inducing vertical drop!

Other activities include tobogganing on the famous Cresta Run, curling and bobsleigh rides. The region also offers a cross-country ski rin for nighttime skiing, and a network of hiking trails to be explored in the warmer months.

Apres-ski, there are plenty of bars and restaurants in the area where you can recharge your batteries. Whether you are looking to try local delicacies or wanting to sample first-class gourmet cuisine, there is something for all appetites.

We’d recommend Ecco St. Moritz, a two-starred Michelin masterpiece in the Giardina Mountain hotel on the outskirts of town, for a truly delightful and delicious experience.

Beaver Creek, Vail, Colorado

With world-class skiing and breathtaking views like no other, Beaver Creek is an exclusive and unparalleled resort.

Tucked deep into the mountains, Beaver Creek consists of 1,800 skiable acres and 150 different trails, accessible via 25 lifts. A the heart of the resort lies the main village, with five-star dining, luxurious hotels and excellent shopping all centred around an outdoor ice rink.

Although its terrain is suitable for all levels, it’s mostly suited to intermediate skiers due to its unpredictability. Those looking for a challenge may want to tackle Stone Creek Chutes or the Birds of Prey Run from the World Cup race. It’s a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity that should not be taken for granted!

If you don’t feel like skiing or snowboarding, Beaver Creek frequently holds carnivals for all the family and there are plenty of luxurious and revitalising spas where skiers can relax their muscles.
