JETSET’s Top 10 Global Ski Destinations

  1. FRANCE>VAL-D’ISÈRE 

Known For: Massive, come-hither mountains. Plus the resort connects with Tignes. The result? A ton of varied terrain.

Stay: Be one of the first to stay above 8000 feet at the gorgeous Refuge de Solaise, which opens in December and features 16 rooms, four apartments, a spa with a swimming pool, a seminar room, a children’s area, a bar, and two restaurants. Oui!

Play: Don’t miss the traditional torchlight descent down the base of the mountain, and if you’re wanting something more adventurous, go dog-sledding with huskies.

Dine: La Baraque is hip and happening, with live music, artisan cocktails, and a sleek alpine ambiance.

Family Fun: Traveling with several families or groups with varying ski levels? This is your jam, and a reputable ski school will have your little ones perfecting turns in no time.

All About Aprés: La Folie Douce is an on-mountain hot spot, where lunch tables turn into dance perches once the sun starts to tease au revoir.
