Snow time! A guide to European Ski resorts / Tiso / Blues the Ski Shop

Winter has truly arrived. You’re getting your skis serviced for the slopes, searching for that Helly jacket that’s hidden at the back of your wardrobe, and getting wanderlust about which resort to hit. But which one should you choose?

Travel website GoEuro has put together a handy guide to Europe’s best ski resorts. Based on a range of factors – precisely thirty criteria from price and accessibility, to available activities – they’ve sieved out the top 100. Here are the highlights.

Nevis Range, Glenshee and Glencoe only just made it on to the list at 97, 98 and 100 respectively. Do you agree? This rating might not seem like much to shout about, but the accessibility and affordability of each resort was praised in the report. With the snow finally arriving in Scotland, we’re looking forward to a few snowy day trips this season.

Want to have a world of choice when it comes to skiing this season? Look no further than Italy’s gigantic resort Sestriere, which boasts over 400km of slopes. Whether you’re just starting out or you’re a semi-pro, the variety of terrain at this resort is well worth exploring.

The Alps play host to the most family friendly ski resorts, with a host of amenities to keep you and the wee (or big!) ones entertained during down time. Adelboden in Switzerland takes the gold medal for the best family-focused resort thanks to its sledge slopes, ice-skating rinks and cinemas.

When your ski break is the most important holiday of the year, why not make it one to remember? If you’ve got some pennies to spend, Ischgl in Austria might be up your street. With a selection of exclusive hotels, spa facilities and Michelin-starred restaurants all at the resort (not to mention the alpine bars) Ischgl takes first place for après-ski luxury.

Fancy going somewhere that’s off the beaten track and won’t cost the earth? The Eastern European snow scene could be for you. A day pass to the Bjelasnica resort in Bosnia and Herzogovina costs just £12.70… It’s a no brainer!
