Niseko, Japan

This is the top skiing destination that you can find in Japan. Situated in Hokkaido, Niseki Ski Resort attracts not only locals, but also even international skiers. It has been a recipient of multiple awards in the past, validating its position as the best in the country. The resort is composed of four interconnected areas. You will also enjoy an extensive selection for accommodation, regardless of how much your budget is. It offers a wide array of on and off snow activities, both for kids and adults, skiers or not.

Courchevel, France

Whether you are a beginner or an expert, traveling on a budget or happy to splurge, Courchevel in France is a promising option when it comes to skiing destinations. If you are just starting to learn how to ski, two of the best places will be Courchevel 1850 and Moriond 1650. There are also many ski schools that are perfect for learning the fundamentals of skiing, with some of the best being New Generation, Supreme, and Bass. When it comes to accommodation, you might end up being overwhelmed with the abundance of the options that are available. Courchevel 1850 is the area with the highest concentration of hotels, especially the high-end ones.

Zermatt, Switzerland

When you talk about skiing in Switzerland, there is perhaps no other place that can rival the popularity of Zermatt. It is the highest ski resort in the country, making it more popular. It has a piste that extends to a length of 360 kilometres. As evidence that the resort is huge, parts of it cover Italy. Regardless of your ski level, there is surely a piste that will be suited for you. The most iconic attraction is not the ski park itself, but perhaps the scenic view of Matterhorn. More than skiing, people come here for its ambiance. It has an old-world charm that you cannot find in any other ski park

Whistler, Canada

Just around two hours from Vancouver, this is another paradise for skiers. Regardless of the time of your visit, you will surely end up in awe. The area consists of two beautiful mountains, which are not only dotted with ski attractions, but also golf courses, shopping establishments, restaurants and bars. It has a total terrain of 8,171 acres and a village elevation of 2,214 feet. The best time to visit is from November to May, although you can expect it to be a spectacular ski destination all throughout the year.
