Va­ca­tion­ing in win­ter has inched up on the pop­u­lar­ity scale steadily among In­dia’s rich and fa­mous. While the more tra­di­tional head for our very own snow cov­ered hill sta­tions, the more ad­ven­tur­ous pro­ceed to the Alps which boasts some of the best ski re­sorts in the world. We bring you a few not-to-be-missed des­ti­na­tions that prom­ise both ex­clu­siv­ity as well as un­matched adren­a­line-fu­elled ski ex­pe­ri­ences.

Ski­ing has long been in­trin­sic to Euro­pean cul­ture, and one of the big­gest rea­sons for the pop­u­lar­ity of the sport is the vast ex­panses of snow-sure moun­tain slopes in Europe. Mont Blanc, Mat­ter­horn, the Eiger—these leg­endary Alpine peaks have wit­nessed un­abashed ski­ing frenzy year af­ter year, and for decades! In turn, they have made France, Switzer­land, Aus­tria and Italy the most sought-af­ter win­ter des­ti­na­tions, at­tract­ing roy­alty, jet-set­ters and the glit­terati from the world over, in­clud­ing, of late, a grow­ing num­ber of In­di­ans as well. If the on-slope ac­tion is high oc­tane stuff, the après ski (ski par­ties) that fol­low can be no less fren­zied and rau­cous.
