The Best Skiing Destinations Around the WorldSkiing is one of those outdoor sports that allows you to experience many locations. However, you might only be traveling to resorts that are closer to home… those you can drive to for a day trip or even a vacation over a holiday weekend. Are you yearning for something a bit more? Do you want to see what the world has to offer? Experience some dramatic views and perhaps even other cultures? Traveling to ski around the world is not uncommon and these four destinations are some of the most popular.
This isn’t just a great place to “hit the slopes” and warm up in the lodge. You can definitely have a great time on the mountains and you won’t be disappointed in the experience. However, the culture here is something you must experience if you come to ski. Do some research and travel here when there will be a festival or other event and you can truly experience the rich heritage of Salzburg. Even if you’ve never enjoyed the thrill of skiing before, this would be a great trip to get started skiing with.
Banff will give you the experience of skiing the Swiss Alps. However, you will have to keep checking to remind yourself that you are actually in the Canadian Rockies. While you can enjoy outdoor sports in Banff year-round, such as hiking, the sport they are most known for is their skiing, which they are consistently ranked high for. Located just south of Banff National Park , which is the first national park set by Canada, you definitely get a feel for the natural surroundings. The resort is warm, inviting, stunning, and definitely a place you want to add to your bucket list if you are a skier.
If you want the experience of traveling to France but don’t have the funds to actually do it – yet – then Quebec City is the perfect skiing destination for you. Nostalgic cobblestone streets, stunning cathedrals with the sound of bells ringing out, the smells of freshly baked bread… You can’t go wrong with a ski trip to Quebec City. There are several resorts to stay at here so you may want to make several trips. You can try a new one each time to figure out your favorite. It’s guaranteed you will want to return.
Park City, a former host of the Olympic games in 2002, is a premier skiing destination. This area is home to several resorts and you will also be able to travel very easily between Deer Valley and Park City Mountain. This means there is a lot of terrain for you to experience here. The best way to get here is to fly into Salt Lake City which is just 35 miles away. Park City isn’t just for seasoned skiers. Bring the family along and enjoy some snow tubing or experience the historic Main Street with the kids.
What Are You Waiting For?
Skiing shouldn’t just be about memorizing the same trails, close to home and comfortable. Push yourself to experience new and exciting things, experience new locations all over the world with different terrain and different cultures. You may just be surprised at the fun of exploration and the thrill of new trails you will see.
