Skiing is and always will be a luxury. Even more so with global warming. Which makes finding the right location more important than ever.

Firstly, don’t mistake skiing as a one-size-fits-all approach as each continent offers a different experience. More specifically, each ski resort within each continent caters to different needs, interests and experience levels.

To make things simpler (albeit with a huge generalisation), I’ve compiled a quick list of continental differences and recommendations below geared towards fellow Australians. This is a selection from the 25 ski resorts I’ve personally experienced, hopefully, it helps narrow down your search parameters.

Finally, skiing is very individualistic. I’ve worked in the industry in a sales and managerial role, and understand that no destination is perfect for everyone. As such, I strongly recommend contacting a ski-specific travel agent for your next holiday. My top recommendation is My Snow Holidays. I know them as I worked there for years and can personally guarantee that these guys have spent seasons in resorts and more years testing locations across the globe. And, the company is a family-owned wholesaler. So, drop them a line, explain what you want, and pack your bags; you’re going skiing.
