Top 10 Most Popular

All of these ski and snowboard mountains have at some stage held titles like "biggest ski resort" or "biggest ski resort in Europe", or been included in the lists of biggest US ski resorts such as "biggest Colorado ski resorts", "biggest ski resorts in USA". These are not the cheapest... the best biggest ski resorts worldwide.

Biggest ski areas

Meribel has a special place in many British hearts – not simply because it’s slap bang in the middle of the biggest ski area on Earth. A resort for long ski days, ski-boot-stomping après and cosy chalets, there’s a great deal to do and ski here, which is why many of us have been coming back for decades.

Stay in the world capital of alpinism and ski beneath the Matterhorn - the greatest alpine town in Switzerland and quite possibly the world, Zermatt has the perfect mix of snow sure conditions on the Matterhorn glacier, a vibrant mountain town (with après from super chic to super lively) and some of the most jaw-dropping scenery on the planet.

Ski never-ending pistes and powder, ogle at colossal peaks and cosy Savoie architecture, then end the day with some of the most wild and wonderful après ski. Val d'Isere is considered by many to be the best ski resort on earth, and we’re inclined to agree.

Surrounded by the beautiful Kitzbühel Alps, Kitzbuhel in the Tyrol is a romantic medieval town with heaps of Austrian character and a great snow sports experience. Internationally famed for its après ski and the presence of the legendary Streif, it’s a holiday destination for the fashionable and fearless, and features on many a skier’s bucket list.

With world class skiing, beautiful vistas and a relaxed Italian atmosphere, Sestriere offers amazing, high altitude skiing conditions for all abilities in the heart of the Milky Way. For a stylish ski and apres week and short transfer, look no further.

A charmingly quirky resort that’s a top ski destination for families and particularly popular for snowboarders, Avoriaz boasts a prime position in the centre of the enormous Portes du Soleil. With some of the best snow in the area and some of the best freestyle terrain in Europe, it’s well worth putting at the top of your must-ski list.

One of Austria's top ski resorts, Mayrhofen has a magnificent medley of varied terrain, Austrian charm and lively après ski. From families to party-lovers and non-skiers to hardcore athletes, this laid-back destination warmly welcomes everyone and rarely disappoints – a fantastic place to ski that Brits return to year after year.

Consistently voted near, if not at the top of almost every skier’s dream destination as well as most official rankings, Whistler has planted its roots very deeply and is there to stay. This monolithic resort has hosted events like the 2010 Olympics and continues to draw in athletes, holiday makers and anyone else who visits with an intense, immeasurable and undiminishing pull.

Attractive, traditional and oozing style, Courchevel ticks all the boxes for a first class ski holiday. With masses of amenities and a quality area that’s well linked within the rest of the Three Valleys - not to mention an infectiously glam atmosphere - it’s no wonder Courchevel’s one of the most popular ski resorts in the world.

Tignes is somewhere you can ski longer, higher and further than most other resorts in the Alps. Owing its snow-reliability to the Grande Motte glacier, the local ski area is joined with Val d’Isere’s to form the mammoth Espace Killy - intermediates will have a whale of a time here. Choose between 5 different villages, whether your priority is convenience, cosiness or cheap accommodation. Tignes also has one of the most famous New Year parties in the Alps.
