Ski areas are measured in hectares rather than just the number or total length of ski trails and the defined ski area is made safe from avalanche, not just the trails.

Where to ski and how to get there?
Where to ski and how to get there depends on where you live and on your appetite for adventure.

Browsing our ski resort reports will help you narrow your search for the best ski destinations for you, including advice on how to get there, where to stay and help you make the most of your skiing or snowboarding holiday.
