I had the pleasure of skiing in Argentina a few years back and I still remember it quite vividly.
Even though I was born and raised in Miami, I quite fancied the snow from a young age as my mother was always taking me on ski trips. Now that I’m back in cold weather I’ve been having visions of skiing again and here I’m going to list my top dream ski destinations, in no particular order.
The best part about Zermatt is it’s sheer beauty. I visited a few years back, sadly not in ski season. I did however ride the highest cable car in the world. It was still beautiful to be there and Zermatt enjoys an incredibly long ski season. It would be a dream to go back.
This is a good place for beginners and intermediates. It also happens to be one of the highest resorts in Austria and also has a long snow season. Over 100 km of runs insures you won’t be lacking any slopes for a while.
Mount Hermon, Syria & Lebanon
Skiing in the middle east? Why not? Mount Hermon is on the border between Lebanon and Syria. It enjoys snow almost all year long. The ski resort is actually in an area controlled by Israel. When the Syria area becomes a bit safer, I would love to ski there. Many bloggers have said Syria is their favorite place in the world.
Val d’Isère, France
A part of some of the most amazing ski resorts in the world, this commune in south eastern France lies right on the border with Italy. The powder is supposed to be super fluffy. Apparently the slopes are not the easiest, but definitely worth a try right? Check out this night shot of the resort.
Mount Hood, Oregon
Mount Hood is a stratavolcano located in northern Oregon, the state’s highest. Timberline Lodge is located on the south side of Mount Hood. One of it’s six ski areas, Timberline, is the only one to offer year round lift served skiing in North America! A good place to have a vacation at to escape the heat of Miami.
What do you think about my spots, unusual? Any on your list as well? Where do you dream of going skiing?
Tip: If you’re looking for ski holidays to any of these fantastic destinations, I recommend checking the prices in the off season to try to get the best rates. Either way, skiing at any of these spots would be a dream vacation.
