The 8 Best Ski Resorts in the World

With 145 miles of trails covered in thick snowfall, Kitzbühel is a standout among resorts in Europe thanks to its 58 lifts, over 60 mountain huts, photogenic views, and its iconic freestyle event. There are runs ideal for beginners and experts alike, and off the slopes, adventurers can trek out to the Aurach Wildlife Park, which features over 350 animals, from red deer to yaks, or go on guided hikes throughout the Alps. After taking in the beauty of the Tyrolean mountains, pause for a breather at the resort’s spa area, featuring panoramic pools, steamy baths, and a solarium.

Intense and intimidating, the chute is for the brave skiers willing to seemingly defy gravity.
