Skiing world wide

Does any sport really beat skiing or snowboarding? If you’re reading this page, then your opinion is probably the same as ours. Skiing for some is not only a hobby, but a wonderful way of life–the true joie de vivre, as the French say. Each season, no matter where we are situated we wait for that first snowflake of the ski season and have constant dreams about skiing through deep powder on pristine mountain slopes. 

Take the family skiing in the Rocky Mountains of Canada and the United States or head out with a group of friends and enjoy the great skiing and nightlife of Europe in countries like Austria and France. Before hitting the piste, it’s always wise to have ample ski insurance for peace of mind.

Most ski resorts rent out equipment, though you may choose to bring your own, especially if you’re an advanced skier or snowboarder. Ski schools around the world vary, with many speaking English but some don’t-be sure to know their language if you sign up! Always check the regulations and conditions of backcountry areas, and choose a guide to take you there so you can explore off-piste safely.
