catered chalet holidays in Europe
Europe has the most diverse range of resorts in the entire skiing world. From the high altitude purpose built resorts with slope-side accommodation like Tignes and La Plagne, to the more intimate traditional villages like St Anton and Val d'Isere where the catered chalets maintain their traditional character, the choice provides the widest selection of atmosphere and skiing. Far from the often slightly sanitised experience of skiing in North America, European ski holidays are very much a product of a much older winter sport legacy and tradition. Lift passes usually cheaper in Europe too.
Not only can you find amazing (even famous) skiing terrain and snow sure resorts, chalet holidays in Europe are also an opportunity to soak up the fabulously diverse cultures, whether via the traditional local foods, traditional mountain villages or legendary après ski, all with some of the most dramatic and spectacular scenery as your backdrop. European resorts do tend to be more relaxed, with the food and the après ski having as high a priority as the actual skiing. If you are more focussed on the skiing you will appreciate the short lift queues first thing in the morning and the pleasantly quieter slopes during lunchtime.

skiing in Europe
Most of the skiing in Europe is in the Alps, spanning Switzerland, France, Italy, Austria and Slovenia. The skiing areas offer endless runs with impressive vertical and surrounded by stunning panoramic views. In many places you can ski from village to village and even from country to country.
France has the most extensive range of resorts and ski terrain, and is the most popular destination for UK residents. It is easy to see why this is, with the high altitude, sno sure convenient resorts, perfect traditional villages and skiing challenges to suit everyone.
Austria is the close on the heels of France in popularity and this is because it isn't quite as expensive and more importantly has the most rocking après ski. Austria is also the birthplace of Alpine skiing.
Swiss skiing is an organised and cosmopolitan experience, with buckets of traditional charm in high altitude resorts. The après ski and shopping aren't bad either.
Skiing in Italy is a super relaxed and friendly affair, where the long lunches and wine drinking are as important as the skiing.
More affordable skiing options are available in the other ski areas of Andorra, Bulgaria and Slovenia.
And Lapland in Finland is also a brilliant destination around Christmas.
