Our top picks: 6 of the Best Ski Resorts Around the World

JAPAN – Niseko

Japanese ski resorts are renowned the world over for being home to some of the best powder, year after year. Niseko Powder Connection is the most legendary of these, home to some of the best snow powder in the entire world.

Accessibility is one of the biggest highlights, with four interconnected resorts all having access to ski lifts. This makes the resort a great choice for ski enthusiasts of various levels, as there really is something available to suit everyone’s taste and ability.

CANADA – Whistler Blackcomb

It’s no secret Whistler is America’s premier ski destination. For years Whistler has welcomed international visitors by the thousands and numbers only continue to grow. Whistler Blackcomb have a wide range of accommodation offerings from budget through to luxury chalets.

NEW ZEALAND – Cardrona (or) Craigieburn

Ski slopes vary drastically in New Zealand, so be sure to choose the resort which best suits your skiing abilitiy and preference. A resort like Cardrona is perfect for beginners, whilst Craigieburn would be a great choice for advanced skiers only.

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.

EUROPE – St Anton Arlberg

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.

    Good to see Cardrona on the list. I am a bit biased because it’s my favorite ski field here in New Zealand (because it caters to all levels). Ski season is coming! 🙂

    Great list! I only know Whistler and St Anton of this list. Whistler is indeed great to ski and good snow (well, at least when we were there). I heard good things about skiing in Japan. Still some destinations for our bucket list 🙂

    Can’t believe you didn’t mention Park City in this list! All of these lodges look so beautiful. Any one of them would be a great place to spend the holidays.

    You don’t mention any French ski resorts. I definitely recommend Chamonix (Mont Blanc…), les Trois Vallees (Meribel and Courcevel), Avoriaz and Val d’Isere, especially for good skiers. Bon ski!

    Great tips,but too far from the Czech Republic (except the Austria).I definitely have to recommend France -Tignes or Val Thorens.Both are awsome!
