Chamonix
Its setting on snow-capped Mont Blanc, Europe’s tallest peak at 4,807
meters, would make Chamonix a skiing icon, even without
the quintessential French Alpine village that lies at its base. The
altitude of the mountain and the glaciers around Chamonix have a
cooling effect that preserves the snow, assuring it some of the best
and longest lasting snow conditions in the Alps.

St. Anton
Serious skiers head to Austria’s Arlberg region for no-nonsense highchallenge skiing, which they find on the more than a dozen superexpert runs at St. Anton. The longest of these is the demanding 10-
kilometer Valluga-St. Anton, with an elevation differential of 1,347
meters. But even the red-marked pistes here are well above the
difficulty of other alpine resorts. St. Anton is especially known for its
roughly 200 off-piste options for advanced skiers — many are places
to go with a guide — and its mega-moguls, especially on Schindler
Kar.

Kitzbühel
Ski towns don’t get any prettier or more romantic than the walled
village of, Kitzbuhel in the Austrian Alps, not far from Innsbruck and
Salzburg. Although its colourful, frescoed buildings house deluxe
hotels and pricey shops like those of Cortina or St. Moritz, Kitzbühel
also welcomes families and budget travellers with small family-run
inns. There’s also something for all skiers in Kitzbühel’s 170 kilometers
of skiable pistes, and in the adjoining SkiWelt, where 280 more
kilometres are served by 90 lifts
