Seven Best Ski Resorts in Europe in 2020 – Part 2

News In the first part of the article, we described the first three best ski resorts in Europe in 2020. These are Courchevel, Verbier, and Kitzbühel. Here are the remaining four. The next resort on our list is located in France, not far from the border with Italy. This is Val d’Isère, one of the oldest ski resorts in the Alps. The old village, which is a part of the Espace Killy ski area, features ski trails of outstanding quality. For many, Val d’Isère has become a synonym of high-quality skiing.

This French resort has a high attitude that ranges from 1850 to 3456 meters. Both beginners and veteran skiers choose it because there are suitable trails for everyone. Many champions, including Jean Claude Killy, learned skiing at this place. Nowadays, Val d’Isère is an upscale resort with posh bars and Michelin restaurants, so it is better to book a hotel in Val d’Isère in advance.

Travelers in search of luxury skiing may find that St. Moritz in Switzerland is exactly what they need. The quality of skiing raises no questions – St. Moritz hosted the Winter Olympic Games twice. The gorgeous resort in Engadin valley is also famous for the Cresta Run, a legendary bobsled run with natural ice. St. Moritz offers an infrastructure for many winter sports: skiing and snowboarding (Diavolezza, Corviglia, and Corvatsch), cross-country skiing, winter polo, ice skating, cricket, horse riding on ice, and more.

All fans of skiing and Italian cuisine can find both if they decide to book a hotel in Val Gardena. Located in the Dolomites, northern Italy, Val Gardena is a popular destination for different kinds of mountain sports. The valley has three charming villages with both exclusive hotels and more affordable choices, some landmarks like museums and a national park, and cozy cafes where visitors can eat, drink, and recharge their batteries. By the way, the Dolomites are a UNESCO World Heritage Site, so this area is worth visiting at least once.

Zermatt in Switzerland finishes our list of the top ski resorts in Europe. The highest ski resort in the country is suitable not only for skiing and snowboarding but also for climbing and hiking. At an altitude of 3883 meters, visitors will find more than 360 kilometers of ski runs for both beginners and experts. Modern cable cars and the brand new Matterhorn glacier run take comfort to another level. The resort has a rich event program, so Zermatt is not only about skiing. The main street of the resort, Bahnhofstrasse, is home to boutiques, gourmet restaurants, and an après-ski scene.
