Fine Dining Is Everywhere

There are so many fine dining opportunities when it comes to staying at European ski resort – delicious food is gauranteed. This doesn’t mean that it’s bad everywhere else; just that it’s exceptional here. There will often be reservations from people who aren’t even skiing at a resort – that’s how good the food is!  

High Standards Are Always Ensured

Although there are many resorts suited to skiers of different ability levels, the high standards of European slopes are maintained across the board. Let’s say you want a luxury European ski experience; you can experience real Meribel luxury without having to be a pro skier. Many resorts welcome all ability levels, and you will get world class service wherever you go. The only thing you might find annoying is the queue on the way to get in a ski lift, but that can hardly be helped.

There’s A Focus On The Overall Experience

Sure, many serious skiers will visit European slopes and want to do nothing but ski. However, a real focus is put on the overall experience of visitors here. You can come with your friends and family, whatever their ability level, and have a really good time. You definitely don’t need to ski all day to have a fantastic experience!

There Are Real Mountains For You To Ski

In Europe, you’ll be able to ski on some actual mountains, rather than hills. Europeans don’t use names to make them sound scarier either; you’ll often find a less than terrifying slope in the USA called something absolutely ridiculous to make skiers feel like they’re taking on something huge. European mountains and slopes have much more elegant names.

The Parties

Because you don’t want to spend the whole time skiing, right? The parties at European ski resorts can’t really be beaten. It isn’t frowned upon if you want a drink during the day, but please take altitude into account, and stay hydrated! At night time (or once you’ve finished in the afternoon), you can enjoy a beer out of a real beer glass and some great music with like minded people.

Now you know what sets European skiing apart, it’s time to book your ski holiday! Bear in mind, you should probably do a little more research before you go right out and book your stay at a resort. Perhaps small slopes with scary names in the USA are going to be more your thing? Unless you look at a variety of sources, you’ll never know.
