The Lodge in Verbier - Swiss Alps Chalet

 

 

The winter season is more than a couple of months away, but ski chalet and resort lovers all over the world are already raring to go into another promising year of winter fun. Switzerland and France have always been the names to look out for in terms of the best European alpine vacations out there. In particular, Switzerland’s Zermatt is a beautiful snowy paradise that is as secluded as a private island (because of the lack of cars and vehicles polluting the air) and is home to the last Alpine mountain to be climbed, the world-famous Matterhorn. Zermatt is definitely a must-visit place for all winter vacation enthusiasts.

Meanwhile, Verbier is a Southwestern Swiss ski resort located in the canton of Valais. It’s a special skiing venue to take a vacation in because it’s arguably the biggest holiday ski resort in the Swiss Alps thanks to its numerous spacious ski areas. It’s also considered a premier backcountry skiing location as well as Europe’s finest and most famous skiing spot ever. Basically, Verbier is renowned for taking its guests in an adrenalin rush of an adventure because of its wealth of “off-piste” or unmarked slopes.

As for the French skiing resort of Courchevel, its main claims to fame mostly root from its fully interlinked ski area thanks to its many ski lifts and the fact that it’s one of the most snow-sure and highest ski resorts in the Alps. What that means is that you can always be guaranteed of ski-worthy snowfall and excitement because of how high up this place is. Courchevel also has a rich skiing history that dates all the way back to the middle of the forties till the present time. Besides which, its hotels provide high-caliber accommodations that rival those of Verbier, Zermatt, and Meribel. An alpine escapade always awaits you at Courchevel!

Finally, the ski resort of Meribel Les Allues that’s located in the French Alps’ Tarentaise Valley offers the biggest concentration of world-class ski resorts and skiers in the globe. If you’re the kind of experienced skier who wants to go through challenging slopes, dependable snowfall, and an interlinked ski area that can even rival Courchevel‘s own ski lift transit, then Meribel is the place to be. Developed adjacent to the Morel village, this Scotsman-owned ski resort was actually founded by Colonel Peter Lindsay in order to get a better Winter Sports site than Austrian and German ski resorts because the Nazi regime was steadily growing in power around that time.
