Now that the World Cup, BBQs and beach holidays that the summer brought us is over, it’s time to look ahead to see what the winter offers. One popular activity is skiing, and we have looked at some of the best resorts to visit.

Vogel, Slovenia

If you are on a budget and are not looking to travel too far, Vogel in Slovenia is a great place to visit. The resort is great for couples or families and with it based in the Triglav National Park, there are plenty of amazing views to take in. A 6-day pass is €145, and you can get beer for as little as €2.

The nearest airport is in the capital Ljubljana and there are flights available from all London airports.

St Anton, Austria

St Anton is regularly rated as one of the best resorts and is based in Austria’s Arlberg region which is one of Europe’s snowiest places. The resort is popular with advanced and expert skiers and has hosted the World Alpine Skiing World Championships on several occasions. St Anton is also popular with those who enjoy après-ski with its two famous après bars, The Mooserwirt and Krazy Kanguruh. Ski passes at St Anton are not as cheap as Vogel, with 6-day passes costing €289.

Innsbruck Airport is approximately 100km away and Zurich Airport is approximately 200km from St Anton. A taxi or train transfer is then needed to get to the resort. You could also get the Eurostar from London St Pancras to Paris and travel across Europe on the train to St Anton.
