8 European Ski resorts NOT to be left off your list

When looking for your next Winter holiday, why not venture away from your typical resorts? World wide, Europe has the largest option of alpine resorts, so why do we keep going to the same ones? Here comes a list of  8 European Snow resorts NOT to be left off your list.

1. Zinal, Valais, Switzerland

Situated on the edge of the Val d’Anniviers, where it becomes the Zinal valley, it is situated amongst the highest peaks of the Alps.  Boasting one of the best areas for off-piste and backcountry terrain in the Alps, when the powder falls you will be skiing fresh tracks for days. Also home to an Avalanche training centre. It is around a 2.5-3 hour drive from Geneva.
