SOUTH AMERICA – Valle Nevado
On a recent visit to South America in the early winter, I was determined to find a ski resort to test the slopes in South America. I wound up at one of the leading resorts high in the Andes mountains; Valle Nevado. These slopes are great for beginners and avid skiers alike, whilst advanced skiers might be interested in opting for heli-skiing.
USA – Telluride
Located in the picturesque mountains of Colorado, Telluride is a world class skiing destination that is frequented by both Americans and international visitors alike. Telluride becomes specifically beautiful during the festive season, making it the perfect Christmas ski destination.

Central Europe has a few ski slopes to choose from, but its St Anton Arlberg in Austria that has taken our attention. St Anton is positioned with a picturesque background, great ski slopes, and international visitors from Europe and the rest of the world.
