Featured Ski Destinations

These are a few of the most popular places to hit the slopes or see all ski destinations

Whether you ski purely for fun or as a bit of healthy competition, if you tackle the bunny slopes or cross-country tracks, nothing beats the feeling of crisp alpine air as you carve through powdery tundra. There is something magical about snowfall that makes the child in all of us want to make adult-sized snow angels and put our physical endurance to the limit by tackling greater gradients on every ski adventure. Ski holidays are perfect for memorable family getaways, romantic vacations or exciting adventures with friends.

The Northern Hemisphere boasts some of the best skiing opportunities in the world from Canada's snow-capped Rocky Mountains to Japan's Hakuba Valley and, of course, the renowned Swiss Alps. Book your ski holiday with Flight Centre from December to February to take advantage of the North's glittering white landscape. The USA puts its hand up as a prime ski holiday destination too, home to the winter playground of the rich and famous, Aspen, and a bunch of family-friendly resorts like Colorado's Breckenridge and Vail which offer lodgings suitable for all budgets.

You can also find ski holidays closer to home from June to August. Australia has its fair share of slopes, from the largest ski resort this side of the equator at Perisher, to the world-class ski fields at Thredbo. Neighbouring New Zealand has made its mark on the ski scene with a handful of snow-covered tracks around Queenstown and Australasia's longest vertical descent at volcanic Mount Ruapehu. If you haven't found your snow legs, there is always snowboarding, sledding, or curling up by the fireside and enjoying the apres-ski (after ski) social life in picturesque ice-adorned villages. If you're ready to strap on your skis and hit the slopes, start planning your dream ski holiday with Flight Centre today!
