Here at Original Travel we are rather ski-obsessed; you could even go so far as to say we’re powder addicts. With this in mind, it’s hardly surprising that we have an ever increasing list of the best, and most outlandish, places to enjoy this ultimate winter sport.

Whether you're a first timer looking for the best resorts to learn your snowploughs and schusses, or want the best heli-skiing in North America, we know the spot. From skiing on virgin powder through Nowegian fjords to heli-skiing under the midnight sun in Sweden, we work with the best hotels and resorts.

Whatever skiing holiday you're after we can surely find it for you, from a week long family break in the Austrian Alps; to ski-mountaineering in France; or perhaps a luxurious ski hard, party harder soujourn in a Verbier chalet. Our pick of the ski spots offering not only the best conditions and scenery, but also the best places to stay and party.

City Breaks

City Breaks

Think of a holiday destination and it's likely that a palm-fringed beach springs to mind, but don't rule out the good old fashioned city break. By definition we're talking short transfers and a perfect distillation of the country in question's cultural highlights in one conveniently accessible destination. Then there are more than likely some seriously slick hotels (both big and boutique), excellent restaurants and top shopping to boot.

Papua New Guinea Tribe

Culture Fix

At the risk of getting all deep, seeing how other cultures make sense of the stresses and strains of every day existence and celebrate the good things in life can be a thoroughly life affirming experience.
