Downhill Skiing & Snowboarding
The allure of downhill skiing and snowboarding shows no signs of slowing up: gliding over soft powder, with the smell of the pine trees, the wind in your hair and the sun kissing your face as dramatic panoramas of the mountains open up before you is an unrivalled bliss and thrill.
The stunning scenery and world-class resorts of the Swiss Alps remain amongst the most popular ski and snowboard destinations, and are easy to get to by train from the UK; but there are also plenty of other fantastic destinations across Europe, offering wonderful skiing in beautiful scenery for all levels and at a range of prices.
