Zermatt

Zermatt

“ My wife and I decided to celebrate a 10-year anniversary in Zermatt this year.  We're from the Northeastern US and figured if we're going to take a ski holiday why not go big and go to Europe.  Trip was in early March and we went without kids.  Settled on Zermatt for the range of terrain and the sense that -- as posted by another here -- if you only do Europe...” --AgWagon

Kitzbühel

Kitzbühel

“One of the largest ski resorts in the world, rich with Austrian history and a traditional approach to skiing. From a gastronomical perspective, the food and beverages are of a traditional Austrian nature. The Apreś Ski scene is phenominal. There are dozens of bars and clubs in and around the Kitzbühel village. Transport to and from Kitzbühel can be presented with challenges as the directions...” --RichardW1995

Chamonix

Chamonix

“ Every serious skier should get here at least once.  What makes Chamonix special is the serious off piste, often glacial terrain--not only the Aiguille du Midi/Vallee Blanche but the Grand Montets, Brevent, and Courmayeur in Italy (through the Mont Blanc Tunnel).  The only safe way to experience this terrain, if you are the kind of skier who is reading this review, is with a...” --oldgoat

Val Thorens

Val Thorens

“ Val Thorens has some of the best European piste skiing, period. Piste bashers will love the varied and interesting selection of intermediate/ advanced groomed runs. Near VT itself the skiing isn't amazing but it's well connected to the nearby areas on your 3 Valleys pass. The only real downside is the lack of tree skiing, and if the weather is bad on a mid-winter trip the exposed slopes...” --arturocarlos

Lech-Zurs

Lech-Zurs

“This used to be my 'home' mountain when I lived still in Europe: went to ski there once or twice a year for 1-2 weeks for 25 years. Went back last year (living in Canada now since 4 years): it is still a magical place. Contrary to northamerican resorts and some French resorts, this place has a history: plenty of atmosphere. As the terrain is really big and varied, you can pass a day of skiing...” --Pieter

Courmayeur

Courmayeur

“I haven't visited as a tourist yet (so to speak), however, have spent a few weeks doing temporary instructor jobs and have had a couple of good free-skis to check out the slopes and a wander around the town. The skiing at Courmayeur is nothing special. This is a small-to-mid sized resort (by European standards), and there is little variation. There are plenty of wide open, steep red runs which...” --skisimon

Les Arcs Paradiski

“ Les Arcs 2011 / 2012 starts HERE!!!! Hope everyone had a good summer. Time to start planning for next winter. The summer season is over. All the lifts are closed. It is raining right now and there is even a little fresh snow falling on the mountain tops today so I thought it must be time to kick off the coming seasons new thread. How many days is it till the season starts, not...” --snowcrazy

Saas Fee

Saas Fee

“ I've been coming to Saas-Fee for the past seven years every Christmas and New year for two weeks.   Though I don't actually stay in the Fee, rather the village of Unter den Bodmen halfway between Saas-Almagell and Saas-Grund, I spend the majority of my time skiing there.   You read reviews constantly complaining about how Saas-Fee is north facing and always in the shadow,...” --William Donovan
