When it comes to winter holidays in Europe, the main thing is to guess the weather. The rating, compiled by Forbes, will help make a choice among a variety of resorts.
St. Christoph (Austria)
St. Christophe is located in the Arlberg area, where, according to one version, skiing was born. It was here that Hans Schneider improved the “Alberg method” of skiing in the 1930s and later made it popular in North America.
Located near the town of St. Christopher, Lech is very popular among the rich and famous. The usual look of a tourist here is a fur coat and a pair of Strolz ski boots that are made right there.
Located outside the city walls, medieval Kitzbühel is one of the most charming towns in the world. Among skiers, he is best known for his Hahnenkamm downhill course, where the World Cup stage takes place every year.
Megeve is not only ski slopes, but also boutiques, jazz bars and restaurants. The resort is located in the Haute Savoie, just an hour from Geneva. Actually the sport here is not the main thing. And most importantly - walking, tasting beautiful dishes and other entertainment.
This is actually a wonderful ski resort, where competitions in many types of winter sports are held, has become the most popular holiday destination of rich Russians. Courchevel is 372 miles of ski runs and 184 lifts, also great shopping and clubs.
Meribel - the middle part of the vast territory of the Three Valleys. There is a great selection of trails and fast lifts. The resort is built on the model of the Austrian ski villages with wooden chalets. Especially this place was chosen by the British.
Cortina D'Ampezzo is the Italian answer to American Aspen and Swiss St. Moritz. The slopes are quite complex. Signs of local color - no one goes to skate before 11, lunch lasts like a siesta, and in the evenings everyone walks along Corso Italia.
Klosters is still the favorite resort of the British royal family, and its style is characterized by the definition of “calm chic”. You can also ski in nearby Davos or take a 7-mile walk to the village of Kublis.
