At Skiworld, we take skiing and snowboarding seriously - its our way of life. So as experts on all things mountain-related, we know what makes a resort really great. And with over 30 years of providing high-quality, value for money ski holidays, we also have a good idea of the things that are important to our guests for their skiing holidays.

We only offer the top-snow sure resorts in Europe and North America and we have an array of ski chalets, ski apartments and hotels across ski resorts in France, Austria, Switzerland, USA and Canada to choose from (we are the only operator with catered chalets in North America!). But if you are looking for some to ski with a bit more distinction or have done all the usual resorts already, or even if you can't wait til winter and are looking for a summer ski fix, we have some amazing but less familiar resorts in Japan, Alaska and Italy where the powder is high and the adventure waiting to be had in our Off the Beaten Track program.

  • France
    France - 17 resorts

    With so much variety across its many well-established and globally renowned resorts, it is no wonder that France is the main ski destination for British skiers of all ski levels. France also boasts the largest lift network of any country in the world, along with some of the most iconic descents and ski resorts the world has to offer. You'll find Skiworld's most extensive range of ski chalet holidays among the French ski resorts, which makes it perfect for holidaymakers who want everything taken care of throughout their stay. 

  • Austria
    Austria - 3 resorts Skiing in Austria is a must if you are looking for the magical charm of traditional wooden clad villages nestled beneath beautiful tree lined slopes, and some of the liveliest après ski in Europe. With skiing to suit all experience levels, a catered ski chalet holiday in Austria is perfect for both beginners and intermediate skiers, as well a offering exhilarating terrain for off-piste lovers. 
  • Switzerland
    Switzerland - 6 resorts Whatever style of skiing you prefer, you can be sure to find it in Switzerland. It's no wonder it is still a popular destination with UK holidaymakers looking to soak up some rustic charm and experience a rich winter sports history in the home of modern downhill skiing.
  • USA
    USA - 16 resorts The skiing in America is on the whole a different experience to European skiing, but also differs greatly from region to region. One thing you can be sure of is an abundance of dry powder, empty slopes, non-existent lift queues and acres of ski terrain to explore; these are just some of the reasons why North America is the ultimate ski destination.
  • Canada
    Canada - 13 resorts North America is not just the reserve of experts and skiing in Canada offers something for every kind of skier, in fact, some of the best English speaking ski schools in the world are to be found here. You will also be spoilt for choice by the extensive terrain, choice of accommodation and little extras such as short transfer times, twin-centre stays and city stop-overs - all wrapped up with a genuine North American welcome.
  • Japan
    Japan - 3 resorts Looking for somewhere a bit different in as many ways as possible? For intermediate skiing with the "wow" factor, there is no better than Japan. Quiet slopes, floodlit pistes and knee-deep powder, all combined with a very different cultural ambience leave you in no doubt that Japan's resorts are something special. This is no 9 to 5 ski holiday.
  • Italy
    Italy - 2 resorts The South Tyrol pushes the boundaries of many of its european counterparts by offering an enhanced and heartening experience for less than you may think for such a high standard. With a melee of three languages spoken  in one small province, the Italian, Austrian and Mediterranean influences unite to form a distinguishable charm that is delivered in the exceptional food and hospitality. Throe in the world-famous scenery, vast 1220km of piste and array of wonderful hotels and you have a winning formula  for any discerning  skier looking for an unrivaled holiday experience.
