Experience a place where skiing is deep-rooted in the culture and way of life. Skiing has existed in Europe's Alps for several hundred years. First as a means of transportation through the rugged mountains and more recently, as a fun way to recreate during the winter months.
Throughout France, Switzerland, Italy, Austria and Germany ski vacationers can experience dozens of perfectly preserved villages and hamlets boasting original chalets, hotels, inns, and restaurants. A Europe ski vacation is also great for the skier or snowboarder who enjoys their leisure time. On-mountain restaurants offer sunny patios, mind-boggling views, and world-class wine lists, sometimes making the Alpine dining scene and après-ski experience a more popular activity than the top-notch skiing.
If you don’t ski or snowboard or you like to include other things on your Europe ski vacation, Ski.com has the inside scoop on plenty of other activities, including snow tubing, zip-lining, fat biking, ice skating, shopping, paragliding, spa treatments, and of course, dining.
