Who doesn’t love the snow? It might not taste that exciting – but it definitely makes a holiday destination a little bit more special. When it comes to booking a thrilling holiday retreat, we’ve found 5 of the snowiest – each is filled to bursting point with fun, adventure and activities! Here’s a look at 5 snowy holiday destinations that will almost literally blow your socks off – so definitely consider wearing more than one pair!
A skiing log cabin holiday in the Crystal Mountain Resort
As far as snowy holidays go – there are none that quite live up to the reputation of the Crystal Mountain resort in Michigan, USA. This ‘hotspot’ is much more than a winter-themed destination however; you’ll find no fewer than 45 exciting ski slopes, nightly bonfires and horse drawn carriage rides to name just a few activities!
A La Grand Bornand skiing cabin
As the name may suggest, La Grand Bornand is in France, and it’s actually considered one of the most family-friendly resorts on the planet. As far as snow goes – La Grand Bornand is full of it – and some spots boast depths of up to 15 metres! We’d advise dodging these areas though, because if we’re honest, there’s probably nothing worse than being thawed out with a hair drier while your family enjoy the slopes.
Besides being a really fun word to say, Geilo also happens to be an incredibly snow-filled resort in Norway. The site is very old – almost a century in fact, and if you’re a fan of big fluffy dogs it’s definitely worth considering a visit. There’s plenty to do and see in Geilo, and whether you prefer to sit in your cabin with a fire going, or traverse the rocky mountain slopes on a pair of skis – Geilo has so much to offer that you will definitely find yourself wanting to come back for more!
The Beauty of Argentiere
If the thought of enjoying the snow at any time of year excites you, then a cabin holiday in Argentiere may be the way to go. Thanks to the positioning of the slopes, this snowy haven boasts white ground as far as the eye can see. It’s ideal for skiers, holiday makers and families alike, but watch out for the temperatures – the higher you go the colder you’ll feel, so you may end up needing more than just one pair of socks!
Coming Over all Holy with Saint Anton
If you’ve never been to Austria before, then the resort of Saint Anton may be right up your street. It’s one of the most popular cabin retreats, featuring spas and weekly events, and as it is a snowy destination – there are ski slopes, too! The resort is open all year round, making booking a holiday as easy as pulling on your snow shoes – and believe us, you’ll definitely need them if you’re hoping to move more than a few yards at any given time.
