Top 10 Most Popular

If you're skiing in a year with poor snow or very early or late in the ski season you need a snowsure European ski resort - fortunately for us, Europe has the highest number of purpose built ski resorts which tend to be much higher altitude ski resorts than the prettier old chocolate box mountain villages - here is a list of Europe's top snow sure ski resorts.

These top Snow sure European resorts are the definitive list of top 10 best snow sure ski resorts in Europe.

European ski resorts with the most reliable snowfall

This is Europe's highest resort, with incredible views of the French, Swiss and Italian Alps and fantastic connections to the rest of the enormous Three Valleys. Holidays here are perfect for varied and snow-sure terrain in a laid back, friendly atmosphere. If you're early or late in the season, or in a year with poor snowfall, this place will give you some of the best conditions in the Alps!

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.

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.

Austria's snowsport capital, St Anton in the extensive Arlberg circus of the Tyrolean Alps has every level of ability covered (including the most exhilarating white-knuckle terrain). Stunning alpine scenery and world famous après ski make St Anton an international "top ten" destination for its' immense skiing, incredible views and intense partying.

Gobsmacking views of Mont Blanc aren’t the only bonus of the glacier - this ‘upside down’ ski resort is one of the most snow sure in the Alps, so much so that you can ski here in the summertime. Much loved for its après ski, the town's main strip is bursting with some of the best bars in the mountains.

A fabulous all-rounder: ski the Paradiski’s wonderful mix of tree-lined trails, knee-deep off piste and wide open cruisers, before returning to whichever purpose built village or age-old hamlet you’re staying in. La Plagne’s easily one of Europe’s best ski resorts and one we visit again and again.

A quiet French resort giving snow lovers access to not one but two countries! Hop between French La Rosière and Italian La Thuile domains with the standard San Bernardino lift pass for a mountain culture overload. Go as easy or hard as you like from cruisey beginners slopes to fast paced kite skiing on the other end of the speed scale.

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.

Saas Fee, the ‘Pearl of the Alps’, was recently voted best Swiss ski resort and second best resort in the Alps! Its high-altitude makes for stunning scenery and excellent, snow-sure skiing for most of the season. The picturesque village is car-free, has great facilities and a fun après scene meaning it’s a hit with everyone from party animals to families.

Lots for families, easy access from Geneva and a chocolate box village to rival the rest of the Alps are just three reasons we like this resort – and we haven’t even mentioned the three ski areas, one of which is a snow sure glacier. Despite it being oddly named after the Devil (le Diable), it’s hard to find a bad word to say about Les Diablerets.
