With winter on its way, skiing enthusiasts are itching to hit some foreign slopes. There’s nothing quite like the rush of carving out the snow in a far-off destination – and many of them offer dramatic views that you’d never get at domestic mountains.
Now is definitely the time to book your skiing excursion – the only question is, where should you go?
U.S. News recently ranked some of the top spots for ski bunnies, and Innsbruck came in at Number 1. Not only has the Austrian town hosted the Winter Olympics twice, but it’s home to nine slopes for skiers of all levels. Zurich is another good option. The Swiss city, which is basically a gateway to the Alps, boasts a ton of cross-country trails and is conveniently close to Europe’s best downhill skiing. Don’t forget about Milan, either. U.S. News pointed out that this chic Italian city harbors several resort towns close by, including Como, Lecco and Brusson.
If you’re on a strict budget, tune in next week to find out some of the most affordable destinations during the winter season.
