World Ski Information

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.

There are ski resorts to suit all levels of ability and preference, from the wide open pistes of Scandinavia to the backcountry of the Alps, Rockies and Andes. Experience all kinds of different foliage in the gladed areas, and meet up in a cultural cafe or restaurant afterwards to learn more about the locals you've spent the day sharing the slopes with.

Visit our individual ski resorts on Ski eGuide to learn more about each location and its offerings. Some feature luxury resorts with all the amenities of a modern town with separate recreation centres, night clubs and attractions while on the other end of the scale you'll find a few smaller resorts around the world that aren't much more than a ski hut and perhaps a cafe or two, but that offer quiet slopes where you can have all that excellent powder snow to yourself!

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.
