SHSean H.Amazing skiing. So many mountains to choose from. It's the Alps! What more could you ask for? And you can take the tram into Italy if you need a break from the slopes.

JJasonThis area of France is legendary for skiing. It is easy to get to from Western Switzerland as well. The tree line is considerably lower than in Colorado, so there is a lot of wide open white space.

GMGraham M.Chamonix is an absolute stunner - I went for the first time last winter and it was the highlight of my year! The snow was steep and deep, and everybody was having the time of their lives. The food, nightlife and the view from the peaks are all incredible.
