Zermatt, Swiss Alps, Laax, St. Moritz, Saas-Fee, Jungfrau, and more… Switzerland is a paradise in terms of skiing and snowboarding, accompanied by ski slopes and accommodation facilities where luxury and comfort are at their peak. Verbier Region, which is one of the most popular places for skiing and snowboarding, is one of the ideal spots for skiing or especially snowboarding enthusiasts, with its snow-covered slope peaks. Although the southern parts of the region, which has approximately 150 kilometers of tracks, receive sunlight, it is said that this situation is suitable for snowboarding thanks to the fresh snow.
Ski amadé, Austria

Serre Chevalier, France
With its many facilities, Serre Chevalier is one of the important ski resorts with 250 kilometers of tracks. The region offers magnificent terrain with tight trees, narrow valleys, small valleys, sharp snow-covered hills, and a natural snow park, especially for snowboarders. Although Serre Chevalier is one of the largest ski resorts in France, it is so quiet and calm that you forget the lift rows compared to the ski resorts in the north due to its location in the southern part of the Alps. Keep in mind that there are nice restaurants in the area where you can taste the timeless flavors of pizza or gourmet French cuisine.
Uludağ Ski Center, which has been serving its enthusiasts for many years, is one of the first locations that come to mind for many people when they say snow sports.

Italy's Cervinia Region is called the country's snowboarding paradise. Located on the border of Italy and Switzerland, the region offers a wide alternative for the beginner or any athlete. Cervinia not only offers breathtaking views of Switzerland's Matterhorn Mountain but also allows you to ski softly for miles. Its peak of over 3,600 meters, located beyond the Swiss border, is an altitude peak that guarantees very good quality and fresh snow. Cervinia is a much more budget-friendly ski area, despite being close to Zermatt in Switzerland.
