Arranging a winter holiday can be daunting at first but once you’re on the slopes it’s definitely worth it.
To help you decide where to go we have made a quick guide of the best resorts for beginners.
Winter holidays are an exhilarating adventure into alpine culture and snowsports can give you the opportunity to travel on spectacular winter terrain that no other mode of transport could. The mountain scenery alone will leave you breathless and wanting more.
When choosing a destination a few key factors come into play. Cost is a factor for any holiday but it’s good to know which resorts are pricier and where you can spend a little less. The number of beginner runs are a useful bit of information, not only nursery slopes but green and blue runs once you progress up the mountain, this gives you a good idea of how easy getting around the mountain as a beginner will be.
Ski School reputation and choice is also a reason to go to certain resorts. Knowing you’re in good hands on the mountains and will be taught in a professional manner can make a huge difference to the learning curve. The higher the altitude of a resort the more snow sure the area will be, which tends to mean conditions will be easier to learn on, however higher up is generally colder and if you aren’t used to altitude can affect your fitness.
