Famous worldwide for its abundance of powder snow, Niseko is Japan’s premier ski resort. You’ll find high quality service, meticulously groomed pistes, Michelin star restaurants, a fantastic après ski scene and a choice of luxury accommodation. The excellent facilities make it suitable for all skill levels, but experienced skiers will particularly love the fresh powder on the off-piste trails.

The Alyeska Resort Alaska

Alaska has many noteworthy resorts but Alyeska Resort in Girdwood tops our list. Offering 62km of slopes, 76 named trails and over 55 foot of snow annually, Alyeska has a reputation for being ‘steep and deep’. We recommend taking advantage of the incredible night skiing opportunities before enjoying one of the fine dining restaurants or relaxing in the luxury château-style resort.

Europe

San Cassiano Italy

Lying at the heart of the Alta Badia and part of the Dolomiti Superski area, San Cassiano is Italian ski chic at its finest. Think leisurely cruises under clear blue skies followed by long glamorous lunches at one of the many Michelin guide restaurants that adorn the mountain and town, including the famous three Michelin star St. Hubertus. Uncrowded, laidback and offering a relaxed après-ski scene and a range of plush hotels, it is one of Europe’s best kept secrets.

Antarctica

Antarctic Region

Considered one of the wildest and most spectacular places on earth, Antarctica is the ultimate bucket list destination for experienced backcountry skiers and mountaineers. You’ll find an endless choice of untracked mountains, unforgettable views and incredible wildlife, including the chance to ski past colonies of penguins and spot whales. There are no resorts or ski lifts, so we’d recommend undertaking guided day trips from an expedition yacht.
