Don’t just take our word for it, Snow Magazine think these are the World’s best …
We still love Reve! A few years ago we put Revelstoke in our World Top Ten, and its inclusion ahead of Whistler caused the message boards to question our judgment. Well sorry, but we’ve not changed our view – we still love Reve, as it has the lot: steeps, trees, perfectly maintained pistes – all covered in tons of the legendary Powder Highway snow.
Top Tip: Fly via Calgary, and break up the journey by visiting the fantastic resort of Kicking Horse for a day or two on your way there.
Swiss charm with serious kick ass terrain! Zinal and Grimentz nestle between, and are often overlooked for, the busy ski areas of Zermatt and Verbier. But they don’t mind being off radar, as they quietly get along with keeping those in the know grinning from ear to ear.
Book it: For just out of resort peace, try Chalet Edelweiss.
Whistler – synonymous with world top ten compilations – is, after much debate, included in ours too. Yes, we know that in our last list we told you why Revelstoke was placed above Whistler, but what we didn’t say is that Whistler is hot rockin’ good too!
Top Tip: Post ski, head straight to the GLC (Garibaldi Lift Company bar) for jugs of margarita, then Caramba for the best wood-oven pizzas in resort.
