The best spas in Val Thorens

While skiing holidays provide a fantastic opportunity to get some exercise and experience a few thrills and spills, they are also fantastic for those who want to get a little rest and relaxation. In fact, you could say they offer the perfect balance between action and serenity, and many of Europe's top resorts are well equipped to make sure that all visitors get both of these things in equal measure.

Indeed, many ski resorts in the Alps are as famous for their spas as they are for their slopes, so if you're looking for a great way to wind down and recharge your batteries after a day of downhill fun then a visit to one of these is just what you need. In fact, by spending a little time relaxing in a hot tub or being worked over by a masseuse, you'll be able to help your body recover from any fatigue it may be feeling following an intense skiing session, and are therefore likely to get much more enjoyment from your trip.

Rent a pair of parabolic skis and give carving a go this winter

If you've got the art of parallel turning down to a tee and are looking to step things up a notch on your next ski trip then you ought to consider carving. You will probably have seen expert skiers employing this technique on the slopes before, and may have thought that it looks a little too advanced for you. However, the truth is that it is much easier than it looks, and once you've got the hang of it you'll find that you're able to go much faster whilst remaining perfectly in control.

Europe's best resorts for off-piste skiing

Skiing is a sport that you really can never get bored of, as it provides such a variety of thrills that it's virtually impossible to experience them all. Of course, downhill skiing is the most common form of the sport, but experienced alpine enthusiasts will tell you that that is just the tip of the iceberg, and there are a range of other exciting challenges to master. Glacier skiing, for example, is just one of the alternatives, while cross-country skiing poses yet another entirely different test. However, one activity that is considered by many to be among the most thrilling of all is off-piste skiing.

Kid friendly activities away from the slopes in St Anton

St Anton is one of the world's top ski resorts, offering something for every type of visitor. Indeed, sitting in the heart of the Tyrol region in the Austrian Alps, it provides access to some of the best skiable terrain on the planet. It's also known for its legendary après ski season, which is why some people consider it to be the type of place that only attracts young party animals.

The advantages of hiring a ski chalet over staying in a hotel

If you're planning a ski trip to the Alps this winter then it's important to remember that you won't be spending every minute of your trip on the slopes themselves, which is why it's a good idea to think carefully about how to maximise your enjoyment when you're not skiing. Much of this time will be spent in your accommodation, so it pays to make the right decision when it comes to booking a place to stay.

Tips for organising a ski trip with kids

Winter sports holidays provide a fantastic way for families to spend some quality time together, and can really help parents and kids bond as they share new experiences and generally enjoy their time in each other's company. However, there are also lots of things you'll need to think about in order to ensure that your trip is child-friendly.

The first thing to consider is which resort you are going to visit and how you are going to get there.

What to expect on a skiing holiday in Tignes

Sitting in the heart of the Espace Killy ski area, Tignes is one of the top winter sports resorts in Europe, offering access to a huge range of slopes covering an enormous area, while also being well connected to neighbouring towns such as Val d'Isere. Because of this, TIgnes boasts an incredible range of attractions, making it suitable for visitors of all ages, interests and ability levels.

France's best resorts for snowboarders

If you're looking for a new challenge on your next trip to the French Alps then you may want to consider swapping your skis for a snowboard, as this will provide an entirely different thrill to anything you may have experienced before. Getting used to a board is not easy, although once you've got to grips with the basics you'll find that it can be just as much fun as skiing, and also lends itself better to performing tricks, jumps and flips. With that in mind, it can be a good idea to think carefully about which resorts to visit, as some are known to be particularly good for snowboarding.

Where to go for early season skiing

The summer holidays may not seem like the best time to start thinking about skiing, although for those of us who simply can't wait for the return of winter it really is the perfect opportunity to start planning a trip to the Alps.

After all, in many resorts, the ski season begins in the autumn, which means we're now just a couple of short months away from the return of the downhill fun.

How to take care of your body on a ski trip

Ski trips can be as exhilarating or as relaxing as you want them to be, with some people choosing to go hard and spend as much time as possible on the slopes, while others prefer to take it easy and pamper themselves in a mountain spa. However you decide to spend your holiday, it's important to remember that the conditions in the Alps can put your body under more strain than it is normally used to, which is why you'll need to make sure you take care of yourself.
