Best Ski Resort for the Weekend: Verbier, Switzerland
For those who can’t commit to a whole week of skiing then Verbier is the perfect solution. With easy airport transfers, a weekend break in Verbier offers a speedy and economical option for skiers looking to hit the pistes within a few hours of leaving their desks. Look out for ski-in/ski-out accommodation around the main Medran lift which leads to the Four Valleys ski circuit meaning not a second of precious ski time is wasted.
Best Ski Resort for Luxury Lovers: Val d’Isere, France
For superb skiing, lively après-ski spots and chic shopping, Val d’Isere is fast becoming the destination for luxury ski breaks. Perfect for those who want to spend a week in the lap of luxury, look out for chalets set back from the main road yet just a short walk to the bustling high street with its mix of restaurants, nightlife and shopping. Expect a combination of cosy tradition with modern design – think balconies overlooking the resort, a wellness centre complete with Jacuzzi and Sauna and a roaring fireplace, all to be enjoyed with champagne and canapés after a hard days skiing, or after a strenuous days shopping at Val d’Isere’s chic boutiques.
Best Ski Resort for Party Pals: St Anton, Austria
For those keen to experience the après-ski more than the actual skiing, you can’t beat Austria and St Anton who leads the way in the party department. Find a chalet just a stone’s throw away from the legendary Krazy Kanguruh and Mooserwirt bars. Party-goers can then dance to the sound of Euro beats from mid afternoon until the late hours of the night. Still up for more? Post Keller offers live music from 9pm every day or try the exclusive Kandahar for all-night dancing and DJs.
