There are many countries in Europe that have ski areas in them however they are small areas and are largely unknown for being ski destinations. To the southeast of the continent lies Bosnia and Herzegovia, where you can ski in the Diarnic alps boasting peaks of over 1,000 metres, well known for being great value for money.

Further north you will find the Czech Republic, which is home to 300 ski areas including an extensive network of cross-country skiing trails throughout its rolling mountains alongside the pretty woodland scenery. Towards the east of Europe, Georgia has lots of areas for brilliant backcountry adventures with very high altitude skiing available. Alongside this the infrastructure is ever improving, drawing more people to come and visit here. The same is happening in Liechtenstein where the lift systems have massively improved. Liechtenstein is the small principality between Austria and France, they have some brilliant skiing available at a great altitude to suit all abilities.

Romania has a very laid-back ski culture, perfect for beginners and intermediates to enjoy the picturesque landscapes with near perfect snow conditions. Serbia is similarly fortunate but in addition, also boasts exceptional hospitality along with high altitude which provides breath taking views. Slovakia, which is north of Serbia, is home to the Carpathian mountain range. Lying within the Tatra National Park, the Tatras ski resort has a variety of different areas including a vast amount of off-piste areas for more advanced skiers.

Further east you will find Ukraine’s most popular and large ski resort, Bukovel, which has great options for your ski holiday to suit all budgets. There are also plenty of off slope activities which include ice skating, snow-tubing and dog sledding. Lastly, to the south east of Europe, Greece is possibly one of the most unsuspecting countries to host skiing, here you will be able to mix fabulous local cuisine along with great terrain over high elevations to cater for all abilities.
