Breckenridge Local Guide

Breckenridge, Colorado is an old mining town high in the Rockies that has now transitioned to a family friendly town that offers world class skiing, excellent nightlife, arts and culture, and tons of other things to do off the hill.  Set high up at almost 10,000 feet above sea level, the winter months stay cold enough to have consistently great skiing conditions throughout the entire season. That high altitude also means that summer days in Breckenridge are very rarely above 80 degrees, making it a great place to escape the heat.  With the largest number of skier visits in the country every year, there are a ton of reasons to come see what all the hype is about!

La Rosiere Local Guide

What was already an excellent ski area – comprising 152km of linked slopes with neighbouring La Thuile in Italy – just got better for 2018/19. Two new fast six-pack chairlifts were built up Mont Valaisan to open up a fantastic area of off piste, as well as five new red runs. This has added more advanced terrain to the ski area, making it more varied than ever before.


La Plagne Local Guide

With a top lift on a snow-sure glacier at 3,250m and pistes that go all the way down to 1,250m, La Plagne is part of the giant Paradiski area, along with Les Arcs and Peisey-Vallandry. The three resorts together have 425km of runs best suited to lower intermediates and families, served by 130 lifts.


Chamonix Local Guide

Chamonix is a unique resort which has been a leader in  Alpine adventure since 1760, when a Genevois scientist offered a prize for the first ascent of its famous local mountain – Mont Blanc, 4,807m, the highest in Europe. The resort hosted the first Winter Olympics in 1924 and has re-emerged on the freeride wave as the capital of all-mountain skiing.
