5 top ski destinations recommended by Travel Family Blog

Wohooo, here we are, with some tips from our family to yours, and it is all about ski resorts. 

When it comes to skiing in Spain it is cheaper than the other more popular resorts throughout Europe. During the holidays, prices will be higher and the resorts will be more crowded. Going during the offseason or after the holidays will allow fewer crowds, more slopes, and savings of a few euros. 2 of the ski resort won’t be Spanish, but even though we highly recommend these. Before we go further, have you checked if you are ready for the slopes? Here you can find some ski gear online, take a look, and let me know in the comments.

5 TOP SKI DESTINATIONS RECOMMENDED BY US

Winter in Europe is marvelous with the white snow, gorgeous mountains and exciting winter sports options. The biggest and best ski resorts offer a variety of slopes for both beginners and experienced skiers. We are beginners, and would love to be one day experienced skiers. 

When we visited these places we found out many people who are keen on keeping active during the winters and going on skiing holidays together with their families. Below is a guide to 5 top ski destinations.

Grandvalira, Andorra

Andorra is located between Spain and France in the Pyrenees mountains. Andorra is that kind of destination that you want to come back over and over again, and it doesn ́t matter if it is winter or summer time. We went several times, and it is surprised us every time. In winter time it looks like in a fairy tale, so if you are not a ski lover, then you can enjoy the beauty of this land, while others are skiing. A popular skiing destination there is  Grandvalira resort, as it is the largest ski area in the micro state. It offers around 66 lifts and many slopes for each skill level.

Bardonecchia, Italy

Bardonecchia is located in the Piedmont region, Metropolitan City of Turin. That is why it is really fast and easy to get there from Turin. And, believe me, it is just a perfect destination for 1 day trip with kids. Bardonecchia is a small village, but due to tourism increased a lot. And you can clearly see, that lots of houses are for rent and there are no people living in those. A great part of the area is Bardonecchia ski area, where you can enjoy it no matter your level of proficiency is.

Sierra Nevada

Sierra Nevada translates as “Snowy Range” for good reason so it’s highly unlikely you’ll find yourself here during ski season without snow. This is Europe’s southernmost ski resort as it offers great sight-seeing opportunities and après-ski as well.

The resort is heralded as Europe’s sunniest, enjoying over 80 per cent of the season in sunshine and on the rare occasions that the snowfall doesn’t oblige, there’s the modern artificial snow system comprising 353 cannons and covering a massive 35 kilometers of piste.

La Molina

La Molina is one of the oldest ski resorts in Spain. It is located in Cerdanya region. It offers a wide range of activities for those who are professional skiers and for those who are less. And here to mention, it is one of our favorites, as whenever we find time, we go there and enjoy the slopes.

Vall de Núria

Vall de Núria ski resort, with a unique wealth of nature and landscape, is located in the Eastern Pyrenees, within the municipal area of Queralbs. It sits above one of the highest points of the Ribes Valley and it’s surrounded by peaks of almost 3,000 meters from which flow a multitude of water sources and torrents. We have still to discover it, and we plan to go there very soon.

      ski time is always fun, and if you sled with your kid, it is even funnier

    This looks like it would be an absolute blast! It’s been years since I’ve gone snowboarding. I would love to take my family someday but we are a family of 8 and that’s going to take some saving up, lol!

    I used to ski as a kid, but I haven’t taken my kids skiing. These sound like they would be fun to visit as a family.
