The Ultimate Ski Trip in Western Europe

Western Europe is the cradle of winter sports. But skiing in Western Europe isn’t just a sport; it’s a way of life. In the continent where skiing originated and the alpine lifestyle took root, you’ll find more ski and snowboard trip options than anywhere in the world. Freeride, freestyle and ski-touring originated in the highest mountain range in Europe, the Alps. Stretching from Austria through Italy and Switzerland to France, the Alps receive regular snowfalls, providing some of the best skiing and snowboarding terrain available. If you’re looking for the ultimate ski trip, Western Europe is where you’ll find it.

Be Aware

With so many mountain resorts neighbouring each other in Western Europe, visitors might want to mix it up. But buying separate passes for these resorts can quickly become a high-cost exercise. Save your pennies by knowing where to find multi-resort passes. For example, Les 3 Vallees in France is home to the world’s largest ski region, where one pass can get you access to over 7 different resorts. Let us help you plan your journey right, and get in touch with LUEX today.

Tim
(Arctic Heliskiing)

"We always wanted to go to Norway. Combining it with freeriding sounded like a greeat idea, so we decided to do it. We absolutely don't regret that. We had the best time. skiing and touring was amazing."

Angelo and Michi
(Yellow Travel Touring and Freeride Camp Lofoten)

"It was an experience of a lifetime. Heliskiing is the best that can happen to you, especially in such an awesome environment - HIGH mountains and DEEP powder. I enjoyed every second of the trip. Would be definitely worth doing it again"

Juan
(Heli Skiing Valgrisenche)

"With short half an hour hikes we were able to access great freeriding areas with knee deep untracked snow. Getting a guide was definitely a good choice. We wouldn’t have explored half of what we skied only by ourselves."

(Freeriding Week Passo Tonale)

Why Western Europe is more than enough for a perfect snow trip

01

Different snow conditions in each european country

Though much of the landscape of Western Europe is dominated by the Alps stretching from the Mediterranean coast of France through Switzerland, Italy, and Austria, you’ll still find distinctive terrain features throughout the many countries and resorts. In France, you’ll witness dramatic landscape, extreme heights and of course some of the world’s best wine. In Switzerland, you can ski or snowboard at some of the world’s state-of-the-art resorts. For a chance to ride where skiing was born, head to Austria where the traditional skiing experience reigns strong. Your experience might be different in each Western European ski destination, but your level of stoke on the mountain will be consistent.

02

A snow trip to Western Europe is about more than just riding

Europe is where skiing was born, but a ski trip in Western Europe isn’t just about the slopes. In many parts, the quality of après festivities and nightlife are almost as important as the skiing. A day on the mountain will have you descend towering peaks and gawk at the landscape from a cable car, before aperitifs and sundowners with a famous European apres ski session ties a ribbon around your day. In Western Europe, there’s no rest until you hit the pillow. Here, you’ll be playing both on and off the mountain.
