My Top Five Skiing Holiday Resorts

Jan 23, 2008
One of my favourite type of holiday is skiing. As a woman I am conscious about my legs, hips thighs and most important of all, my gluteus maximus! Therefore, for me the best vacation are skiing holidays with lots of my mates, that way I can relax, drink and eat as much as I want, but at the same time I can burn off the food by doing lots of skiing toning my thighs and bum. However, opting for a holiday in the sun and lounging on the beach is another favourite of mine!

Skiing fans will undoubtedly have some idea of the best places to visit and enjoy the fantastic buzz of skiing with your mates. In addition, you may have picked your favourite skiing holidays destinations, as some expert skiers may prefer different places for the slope surfaces. Personally I go for the most friendliest resorts rather than be fussy over how slippery the slope needs to be. Therefore, here are my personal top five choices for the best skiing vacation.

Starting from the bottom at number 5 for skiing holidays would have to be Turin, Italy. Although, I am a big fan of Italian food (and if I may add the wine), it had once played host to the 2006 Winter Olympics. With fantastic views and good transportation (approximately one hour away from the main train stations), this was a good a holiday for those who are into skiing regularly - not so friendly for beginners though.

Number 4 would have to the famous Aspen, best known as the celebrity hot spot - however unfortunately I did not get to meet anyone of particular interest. Aspen is relatively hassling free mixing a bit of glamour with sporty fun. Guides are comprehensive, which include which airlines include skiing boards on board and transportation is easy to get hold of in order to travel to you lodgings making it easier to carry everything over.

Number 3 is of course Austria. The first time I ever went skiing was in Austria, as part of a trip with my school - since then I was hooked. It would therefore be safe to say that this place actually has some sentimental value to me, most of the time when I visit Austria I have a strong feeling of nostalgia. My coaches were very friendly and the lodgings were great - if you were a student. I would highly recommend this as your first skiing resort.

Number 2 is Croatia. Again, this is more of a nostalgia trip for me, but Croatia has fast become a popular holiday destination in itself. Though their skiing facilities do not match that of its borders, such as Italy and Austria, it does however make a great family fun holiday and is a great place during the skiing season. Always worth visiting the Croatian Olympic Centre whilst you are up there in Mount Sljeme.

Now we come to my final Number 1 spot for skiing, which is French Alps. This has been one of the top destinations for many years. My favourite spot in particular is The Three Valleys - it has more than 410 miles of skiing slopes and only has the slopes and the ski lifts connected to it. Add to that the120 km for cross-country skiing this marks as a skier's haven!

You may or may not agree with me, or you may even be interested in going on your first skiing holiday, however, this is just my top five lists for skiing destination. This is not based on popular public voting or demands, it is however intended for people to think about their top five destinations and possible trips ideas.
