Skiing Destinations Of The World
St. Anton, Arlberg, Austria
Probably one of the most favorite skiing destinations among the fans of skiing because it carries a unique yet perfect combination of typical Australian ski action along with the raditional backdrop of the St. Anton town. The local people here are really friendly and a huge ski area has been chunked out. The best part of St. Anton is that there is a consistent snowfall. For the Skiing enthusiasts they must wake up early in the morning and start their skiing as there are hundreds of such enthusiasts always ready to go. For the experts ‘over the back tour’ of the Valluga is a must. The Valluga Bridge Couloir is the best option and will not be allowed to roam around there without a guide. If you don’t like anyone to guide you then the back of the Rendl just opposite to the valley is another good option for you. But mind you the Hinter Rendl and North Face are only for experts.
Verbier is known as the home of extreme skiing as it holds many international and national skiing competitions across the world on those big snowy mountains of Switzerland. There are cable cars to help you to reach the top of those mountains and then you can look down to the Heaven or the Rock Garden. The back side of the Mont Fort will probably get your adrenaline pumping and it is probably the best place for skiing in Verbier. Verbier is not only heaven for skiers, but also for photographers also. It has many good guide companies and also some of the best ski schools. The experts coming out from these schools are probably the best skiers of Europe.
Whistler, British Columbia, Canada
Whistler is also known as Whistler Blackcomb may be because it is one of the slickest run skiing resorts of the world. It has the opportunities of pisting, tree runs and glading. It has probably the best lift system in any of the Skiing resorts across the globe. The help of guide will work fantastically well for you as he will take you to all the hidden entrances which lead you to bowls and couloirs. The best bowl here is the West bowl which is on the Whistler peak. Garnet, Diamond and Sapphire Bowls are also good places to be.
If you need a guide the most when you want to ski this is the place you need him the most. Because this place is highly prone to Avalanches, crevasses and cliffs, it has claimed more lives then the any other skiing destinations of the world. The look of the Mont Blanc, Les Grand-Montets are gorgeous but deadly as well. The best part to come down is on the Aiguille du Midi’s Italian side. The initial climb down is spine chilling but later it becomes relatively easy and can give you great fun. The guide will attach himself with you so that he can rescue you in case of any trouble.
Jackson Hole, Wyoming, USA
The place is strictly for the expert skiers and that is why it attracts the best of the lot. The slop is steep and it has been less groomed. The expert skiers recommends at least 3 days camp here to enjoy the place in full. You will be surprised to know that even instructors (guides) fight it out hard to get selected. The selection process for such instructors is very tough. On the powder day the expert skiers are looking for some of the best 20+ foot drop and then a walk away!!
