Slalom Through These Skiing Getaways

Monday, June 26, 2017

Skiing has always been seen as the getaway of the upper class. It's always been that way - why? Because skiing destinations were at the forefront of the holiday. Before skiing, people didn't tend to go abroad - and skiing was a unique venture that brought Victorian citizens to the Alps and beyond.


Now? It still carries that high-class feel, but it's accessible to everyone with a budget and a desire to hit the slopes. Skiing is a unique venture and something that everyone can enjoy. Skiing can take place all over the world. From the indoor areas of the United Kingdom, to Australia. Believe it or not, but Skiing is also a summer sport - believe it or not. Just because there is snow doesn't mean it's winter! Not at all. The mountains of Europe bring a natural cold that works for the snow. Whether you're a veteran of the slopes, or a newcomer to the snow - here are some destinations for you to pick from!


For all-year-round ski adventures, head to the Hintertux in Austria. With 14 miles of runs made accessible by lifts like the Glacier Bus - that can help carry thousands of skiers up the mountain an hour, the Hintertux is for everyone. A day ski pass from May to October will set you back 40 euros, which is pretty decent. What's more, the Hintertux is open all year round; you can find plenty of ski house rentals if you want to stop over and offers challenging ski runs to complement its beginner slopes. If you need a rest, you can catch a ride to nearby Innsbruck to enjoy a slice of Austrian life, or head over the Italian border and bounce around the Italian Alpine villages.


North America can compete with the evergreen (or everwhite!) Hintertux. Timberline Lodge is open almost all year! Open between May and September, a ticket to Timberline will set you back almost sixty dollars a day, but you'll have to arrive early in the morning as the runs close in the afternoon. It's got easy access to Oregon's main cities - including Portland, meaning you won't have to stop on the slope. Timberline Lodge is one of America's older resorts and has held steady on the slopes of Mount Hood since 1937. Timberline is primarily used by competitive and professional racing skiers, but you will be able to use the public slopes and runs.

For the best skiing experiences, you might need to wait until the winter. It's worth it though, as a visit to Alpe d’Huez will prove. It's a winter paradise for snow lovers and is situated a village that has benefited from the popularity of the Alpe d’Huez. With links to a whole bunch of resorts like Vaujany and La Garde, the Alpe d'Huez is not a destination without options - it also allows for stunning ski views over a whole stretch of France - with Pic Blanc reaching into the sky at 3330 metres. If you're a bit bored of the slopes, there re plenty of other things to do in Alpe D'Huez, like biking and hiking!

Stay Gorgeous
