Ski breaks offer many rewards—from the stunning views at the tips of the high, snowy peaks, the rush of adrenaline that comes while gliding down the slopes, or the postcard-worthy hot chocolate-by-fireplace in the chalet lounge.

Ski resorts in Switzerland

Known as one of the skiing capitals of the world, the breathtaking views are enough to calm a first-timer’s nerves. For your non-ski-loving companions, there’s still plenty to do—explore the Matterhorn, go white water rafting, or take a tour through the mountains via train. 

Our picks in Switzerland:

  1. Hotel Alpenrose Wengen
  2. The River House Boutique Hotel, Andermatt

Ski resorts in Poland

Bordering Slovakia, Czechia, and Germany, the Polish mountains are famous for their ski slopes. Nestle down into the comfy lobby sofa of your chalet with a warming mug of the region’s renowned take on mulled wine, known as grzaniec Galicyjski, and some tasty pierogi. Bidroom is a particular fan of the Polish mountains; we even celebrated last year’s Christmas party there. For the voyeurs, it’s not all about the slopes—plenty of hot thermal baths, quad tours, and unique hikes to enjoy. 

Our picks in Poland:

  1. Nosalowy Park Hotel & Spa
  2. Hotel Aquarion
  3. Zakopianski Dwór

Ski resorts in Italy

It’s not just all about the spaghetti. Italian ski slopes are among the best in the world, especially if you’re trying to please sun holiday lovers and adventurous skiers. Up high in the mountains of Italy, the sun is usually beaming. Sure, it may be chilly, but spa jacuzzis are for. 

Our picks in Italy:

  1. Bio Hotel Hermitage
  2. Camina Suite and Spa
  3. Faloria Mountain Spa Resort

Ski resorts in France

The Alps are the highest and most extensive mountain range system that lies entirely in Europe. If you’re a movie buff, you’ll recognise the location from the Bond movies. You’ll find some travelling treasures at the foot of some of the highest peaks, like the dainty commune called the Chamonix Valley or the spa town Aix-les-Bains. Practice saying “beginners’ slope” in French for your Alpine adventure (it’s ‘piste pour débutant’, by the way). 

Our picks in France:

  1. Hotel Les Grands Montets
  2. Adonis Valberg
  3. Hôtel l’Hélios, Member of Historic Hotels of Europe
