Ski Resorts in Europe

Experience the culture of traditional ski villages.

The birthplace of alpine skiing, a trip to Europe is essential for anyone with skiing in their blood. It is an opportunity to not only experience some incredible skiing, but to immerse yourself in the rich mountain culture of the Alps, from France to Austria to Switzerland.

European ski resorts are an entirely different experience to what you’ll encounter in North America. Most ski areas are made up of an interconnected network of ski villages, offering access to thousands of acres of skiable terrain — far exceeding what you’ll find in Canada. Each village has a long history with the sport, sometimes going back for over a century.

The views are unforgettable, the local cuisine is a delight, and the charm is undeniable. Ski on iconic mountains like Chamonix and Zermatt, or take a trip across the border for lunch in Italy or Switzerland, before returning to your traditional European ski chalet in the evening. One thing is certain: a trip to Europe is one that you’ll be sure to remember. Start your free quote today.
