Seven Best Ski Resorts in Europe in 2020 – Part 1

News The European continent is diverse and offers different types of vacations to its guests. If you crave for snow-covered mountains, cozy villages, and memories that will last a lifetime, then it is time to book a room in one of the European ski resorts. For tourists in Europe, the European Alps are always the #1 choice when it comes to skiing and snowboarding. However, the Alps are situated in the territories of eight countries, namely, France, Italy, Monaco, Switzerland, Germany, Austria, Slovenia, and Liechtenstein. This means that a ski holiday in Europe can differ in region, culture, food, and snow.

Here is the list of the seven most popular ski resorts in Europe in 2020 that may be helpful in choosing the right destination for your next ski vacation. Our list starts with Courchevel, the legendary resort in Les Trois Vallées, which is the largest linked ski area in the world. When booking a hotel in Courchevel, travelers need to keep in mind that there are actually several towns with this name. These are Courchevel 1300 (Le Praz), Courchevel 1550, Courchevel 1650 (Moriond), and Courchevel 1850. The digit after the word “Courchevel” is the altitude of the town in meters. The center of the resort has an altitude of 1,747 meters.

This is often the primary choice of tourists in search of a luxury ski resort. Indeed, there are 11 5-star hotels and 7 Michelin-starred restaurants in Courchevel. The resort regularly hosts skiing events. In 2023, the resort will host the FIS Alpine World Ski Championships together with one more popular resort, Meribel.

Verbier is one more top choice for skiing in Europe. This is a charming village in Valais Canton in Switzerland. Verbier enjoys a top location in the 4 Vallees ski area that features almost a hundred of ski lifts and 400 km of ski trails. The resort is open all-year-round and attracts visitors of all ages. Skiing, snowboarding, hiking, mountain biking, and many other activities are even more exciting together with the breathtaking views of Mont Blanc and Matterhorn. Rich cultural life, nightlife, shopping, and gastronomy make this resort truly unique.
