Best Ski Destinations for Everyone of All Ages

Not everyone is a skier, but that doesn’t mean you can’t join a skier on a holiday at a ski resort to enjoy the stunning scenery, chow down on the regional cuisine or have some fun in the snow. Here is our list of best ski destinations that will keep both skiers and non-skiers happy, young and old.

1. Whistler, British Columbia, Canada

Best for: Skiers and non-skiers alike.
 
Many consider Whistler to be one of the top ski destinations in the world. But it’s not just all skiing and snowboarding in this British Columbian town located two hours from Vancouver. When the skiers hit the slopes, the non-skiers can enjoy the pedestrian-only stone walkways lined with charming shops, eateries and galleries in Whistler Village or spend the day at Whistler Olympic Park snowshoeing, tobogganing, or riding fat-tire bikes in the powdery snow. 
 
2. Breckenridge, Colorado, USA
 
 
Best for: Vast ski area and all the facilities of a medium-sized town.
 
If you’re not a skier or spending the days conquering the 2,000 skiable acres of Beckenbridge, there are plenty of fun local activities like dog-sled rides, hot-air balloon rides, and gold mine visits for non-skiers or skiers who want to take a day-off from the slopes. 
 
3. Whitefish, Montana

Best for: Families and groups with different skiing abilities.
 
Whitefish, a former logging and railroad town still retains a certain old-Western charm and is free of the glitz and glamour of most well-renowned ski resorts. It’s an incredibly family-friendly ski area with terrain suitable for all ages and skiing or non-skiing abilities.
 
4. Niseko, Japan
 
 
 
Best for: Regular snowfalls, long ski season and onsens. 
 
Niseko has long been a popular destination for skiing due to its deep snowfall, pristine powdery snow and long skis season. For non-skiers, it’s the ultimate destination for a relaxing and stress-relieving getaway evolving around fine dining and onsen-ing.
 
5. Alpensia, South Korea
 
 
 
Best for: Night skiing, sheep-feeing and cheese-making.
 
When you think of skiing, South Korea doesn’t automatically spring to mind as a ski destination. However, it has many well-developed ski resorts and plenty of snowfall. Many ski resorts in South Korea offer night skiing with lit slopes, and all resorts offer equipment rental as well as clothing hire which mean less packing if you’re travelling from afar. At Alpensia non-skiers can try their hand at sheep-feeding or cheese-making, or spending the day at Ocean 700, a water theme park nearby.
 
6. Cortina D’Ampezzo, Italy
 
 
 
Best for: Breath-taking scenery and a laid back ambience.
 
If you’re looking for a more laid back ambience and stunning mountain scenery, the Italian Dolomites is the region to head to for skiers and non-skiers alike. Cortina D’Ampezza is an elegant ski town in the heart of the Dolomites region and full of non-ski activities that will keep the whole family happy and entertained for days, like horse-riding in the snow, tobogganing, ice skating, riding a bobsleigh and even ice disco dancing!
 
7. Avoriaz, France
 
 
 
Best for: Being car-free, convenient and kid-friendly.
 
The Alpine paradise of Avoriaz has the most snow-sure slopes in the Portes du Soleil ski area and literally car-free. Everyone in Avoriaz gets around on horse-drawn sleigh. Accommodations are ski-in, ski-out making it super convenient for skiers. In the heart of the resort is the Village des Enfants which has special ski slopes and Disney characters to educate your three year old in the art of skiing and keep the entertained.
 
8. Pradollano, Spain
 
 
 
Best for: Mild weather, frequent sunny days with blue skies.
 
Pradollano ski resort in the Sierra Nevada Mountains is just a 45 minute drive from Granada and Europe’s most southerly winter sports region. If you want some fun in the sun with snow thrown in, or you’d prefer a more temperate climate to ski in, Pradollano is the ski destination to head to. Its proximity to the Costa del Sol also means you can hit the slopes and the beach too.  
 
Whether you’re a skier or not, a beginner or an amateur winter sport enthusiast, keep everyone happy and let Summit Holidays plan your next ski holiday with a whole lot of fun-filled activities on the side.
