First Ski Holiday In 2011
The ski season in Europe, the U.S. and Canada is well underway, and millions of skiers will be hitting the slopes – some for the first time – in the next few months.
For people who haven’t been before, the first thing to consider is destination – and there’s plenty of first class ski holiday destinations to choose from.
In Europe one of the best locations for new skiers is Andorra – there’s good ski schools and plenty of slopes that are good for beginner and intermediate skiers to enjoy themselves on.
The most obvious choice for Europeans is France – over half of all ski holidays taken by the British are in France – and the Pyrenees and Alps offer a wide choice of skiing, and price ranges.
For those on a budget the choice used to be Andorra, and Andorra built her reputation as a cheap ski holiday destination in the 1980’s and 90’s, but Andorra has moved upmarket in recent years, spending millions on good hotels and first class skiing facilities in a bid to attract those who might head elsewhere.
The 2011 budget destination is Bulgaria.
In the U.S. and Canada there are, like Europe, a multitude of choices, but the best known ones that have all the facilities a skier would possibly want are:
Lake Louise, Whistler, Banff and Jasper for Canada ski holidays.
And for the U.S. Aspen in Colorado, along with Breckenridge, Lake Tahoe and Vail offer new and established skiers alike a great choice of accommodation and infrastructure.
Along with which destination, another important factor is which company to travel with. Those with experience include Thomson, Thomas Cook, Crystal Ski and First Choice.
Whichever company you choose, and destination you decide upon, if this is your first time we hope you have a good ski holiday – it could become a regular thing!
