With Ski season fast approaching (and already in full swing on certain parts of the planet), now is a great time to dig out your equipment from your London self storage unit and start to browse the internet to find the best resort for your winter break. Whether you already have a family favourite or want to explore new slopes with friends, we thought we would help whittle them down and highlight some of our favourites.
Aspen, Colorado, USA.
Just the name, Aspen, puts a glamorous image into most skier’s heads. The glitz and glamour, the jet-set celebrities and the price. As one of the most expensive ski resorts in the world, and the most expensive lift pass in North America, Aspen has stamped its name firmly on the map as the place to ski for those wanting luxurious hotels, fine dining and quality of skiing. With over 5,500 acres of skiable terrain, it is a resort for everyone but it does come with a high price tag.
As Italy’s most fashionable resort, Cortina is certainly a sight to behold. Historically a racing town, and host to the 1956 Winter Olympics, it’s certainly home to some serious slopes. If it’s an empty European piste you’re after, Cortina is the place to be as 70% of Italian visitors don’t actually step foot onto the slopes so all the more for you. That is if you can drag yourself away from the views.
Chamonix – Mont-Blanc, France
Hosts of the first ever winter Olympics in 1924, Chamonix has remained one of the world’s most famous ski resorts ever since. Sitting at the foot of Mont-Blanc, Chamonix plays host to the famous 20km Vallée Blanche glacier run and tends to cater to dedicated skiers and snowboarders. With an exceptional range of varied terrain, Chamonix provides everything an intermediate to advanced skier could want on the piste.
And finally, the beautiful and peaceful getaway of Zermatt holds Switzerland’s charm firmly in its grasp. The gorgeous car free village sits at high altitude, making great snowfall guaranteed each season. A real winter wonderland for Christmas breaks as well as fun family days out.
Wherever you may be heading this winter, now’s the time to start preparing so head to the shops or better still to your own personal self storage space where all your items have been carefully stored ready for the first sign of snow.
When it’s all done, here at ABC Selfstore we have storage space for hundreds of pairs of skis, thousands of thermals and millions of mittens. Just visit one of our self storage sites in London, located in Camden, Southwark and Wandsworth, where one of our team can help you work out what flexible and affordable self storage space you may need for all your ski equipment. As when you’re all done for the season, we’d even be happy to help you pack it all away until next year.
