From Kazakhstan to Canada via the Cairngorms, our readers have been on the pistes, enjoying the après ski, falling off chair lifts, and marvelling at the scenery – and, sometimes, great prices

Winning tip: Vancouver, Canada

Cypress Mountain is only a 30-minute car trip from downtown Vancouver and offers an amazing variety of groomed runs, moguls and backcountry options. It’s as good a place to learn as it is to push your limits. One of the best things about the mountain is its proximity to the city. Head up in the evening for some jaw-dropping night skiing with the city lights below. There’s plenty of great après-ski in the lovely lodge bars and you have the benefit of being able to stay in Vancouver itself, not in an expensive resort. It’s also a fantastic day out for families, offering tubing, sledging and other snowy activities. Cypress also has a Nordic Area dedicated to cross-country skiing and snowshoeing, again offering incredible views of the vast mountain ranges north of Vancouver. This a perfect option for those seeking the comforts of a cosmopolitan city broken up by some alpine adventure.

翻越凯恩戈姆山,从哈萨克斯坦到加拿大,大家已经仿佛站在滑雪道上,享受着滑完雪以后的闲暇时光,在升降机上赞叹着眼前的风景——当然,有时候还惊叹一下高不可攀的价格。

晚上的滑雪道……滑雪者在赛普里斯山上俯瞰温哥华。图片由Alamy提供。

首位:加拿大温哥华

赛普里斯山距离温哥华只有大概30分钟车程,里面具备各式各样的滑雪坡,还有花样滑雪或野外滑雪选择。在这里你既可以学到很多东西,同时你也在不断挑战自我。这山最好的一点就是离城市很近。晚上,人们一边在这里滑雪一边惊叹山下那片璀璨的城市。这里有很多可爱有趣的旅馆酒吧供人们滑完雪后休闲娱乐,这样你就可以既不花昂贵的景点门票,又可以呆在温哥华里。这里有滑雪胎、滑雪橇还有其他各种雪上活动,一家大小来这里都可以美美地过上一天。赛普里斯山还设了一个北欧地区,专门给人们进行越野滑雪和穿雪鞋行走,同样,这里温哥华北部巨大山脉的风景美得让人口瞪目呆。如果你想在既有高山探险活动又具备国际化特色的城市里寻求舒适,那这里就是你的最佳选择。

Almaty, Kazakhstan

Medeo (Medeu) in Almaty, Kazakhstan

From the country’s largest city, Almaty, the

Shymbulak

ski slopes are on your doorstep and everything is easy and reasonably priced. The resort is small, but there were no queues at any point. From the gondola at Medeu to the toilets and lockers at the slopes, the services are all fine. It’s not a resort for novices though: the main long slopes are red and there are only a few short blues. At 4pm the slopes are in the shade and get icy. It’s well worth going over to the other side of the mountain, for glacier views, and three short blue slopes. Of course, flying to Kazakhstan is expensive but the skiing can be made very cheap by renting gear from

哈萨克斯坦,阿拉木图

Medeo (Medeu) in Almaty, Kazakhstan

Shymbulak滑雪场就在这个国家最大的城市——阿拉木图里,一切都方便快捷而且价格合理。风景区很小,但是里面所有点都不用排队。从Medeu的贡多拉到厕所到滑雪场的储物柜,一切的服务都非常好。但这里并不专门为新手服务:主要的长滑道是红道,蓝道就只有短短的几条。下午四点的时候滑道就已经遮蔽在山阴下,温度达到冰点。当然,飞去哈萨克斯坦很贵,但是在那里滑雪可以很便宜。

Aviemore, Scotland

View from carriage of funicular railway of track rising to the Ptarmigan building, high on Cairngorm Mountain, Aviemore

We are going to Aviemore at February half-term to teach our youngest child to ski, following in the footsteps of her siblings. It’s a good place to start as conditions in Scotland can be variable and the beginners’ section is up the mountain not at the bottom, so if you can cope with the wind and ice you often find there, skiing elsewhere later is relatively easy. The cafe at the top of the funicular is also adjacent to the beginners’ area, so a hot chocolate is often appreciated.

推荐从Extremal店租双板鞋,店在阿拉木图Dostyk和Ferabi街道的交叉拐角处,这里的出租价格才是滑雪场店铺的一半。可以从Extremal店搭12路公交车到Medeu贡多拉处。(19个站)

我们打算在二月中旬到阿维莫尔教我们最小的孩子滑雪,她的兄弟姐妹也在这里学过了。这里很适合新手学习,因为苏格兰的地理形势多样,同时新手区域是在山上而不是在山脚,所以如果你新手时就可以适应那里的风和冰,那之后在其他地方滑雪就变得相对简单了。索道顶端的咖啡厅也在新手区域旁边,所以滑完雪了还可以在那里品尝一杯热热的巧克力。

Bialka Tatrzanska, ski resort, Poland.

If you haven’t got a clue about skiing or snowboarding but want to learn,

Bialka Tatrzanska

 a small Tatra mountain resort two hours’ drive from Krakow and 22km from

Zakopane

is a serious contender for a snow sports crash course. Affordable one-to-one tuition for kids and adults, nursery slope with travelator, beginners’ slope with drag-lift and multiple runs with modern chair lifts are available. If you’re experienced, you may find the resort small, but as a beginner there are more than enough runs and options to give you steady progress and keep you busy for the week. Well-priced, good quality (and excellent customer service) rental facilities are on site. Overall, the scale of the resort is small enough to make snow newbies comfortable but there’s plenty of accommodation in self-catering apartments and hotels.

Skiers and snowboarders at Bansko ski resort in Bulgaria

There’s no such thing as a cheap ski holiday, but

Bansko

, three hours’ drive south of Sofia, comes pretty close. It’s great for beginners as lessons and equipment hire are cheap, and there is a reasonable range of pistes including a nursery slope, some excellent blues and reds, and a couple of decent blacks. There is some off piste, but advanced skiers may be bored. The real joy of Bansko is its social potential – drinks and meals are very cheap, even on the slopes. It’s simple to arrange accommodation (£10-40pppn depending on whether you want a shared apartment or full-board hotel); flights to Sofia are available from budget airlines and transfers can be arranged online. Once in the resort, a lift pass can be purchased from the gondola station and equipment hire and lessons arranged through a nearby shop (Bansko Sport are very friendly and helpful). If you’re a family or a group of people wanting to try or improve at skiing without spending the earth, Bansko is great fun.

想去滑雪场过一个便宜的节日几乎不可能,但是

班斯科

在索菲亚南部、距离三个小时车程的地方,却让不可能变得可能。这里很适合新手因为课程和租用设备都很便宜,同时这里有多种滑道,包括一条练习滑雪坡、一些很棒的蓝道和红道,还有一些得体的黑道。这里还有道外滑雪,但是那些经验丰富的滑雪者可能会觉得无聊。班斯科真正的亮点在于它的“社交功能”——餐饮都很便宜,即便是在滑雪坡上。安排住宿也很容易(价格从£10到40不等,主要看是住共享公寓还是酒店)。到索菲亚的机票可以在廉价航空公司里买到,可以网上预约转车。一到了滑雪场就可以到缆车站买票坐缆车,租用设备还有课程安排可以在旁边的商店解决(班斯科体育店的店员很友好, 同时很能干)。如果是一家人或是一组人想尝试或是提高滑雪但又不想花太多钱,那班斯科很适合。

At night, a street in the ski resort of Les Gets, France

Les Gets is family-friendly with gentle, tree-lined lower slopes for beginners and higher, steeper pistes. Its five mountain flanks face different directions, so the area is great for tracking perfect snow conditions at different times of day. The jewel in the crown is Praz de Lys, which mainly locals use (it’s not included in the main ski pass). This area has empty, beautiful runs for skiing and also many wonderful walking trails for non-skiers and dogs. There are great views across to Mont Blanc. Every Tuesday night Les Gets puts on a free evening of entertainment for visitors. At the base of the slopes a giant cauldron of steaming mulled wine is served by locals, or mugs of hot chocolate; the ski instructors put on a great display of skill, and the evening finishes with fireworks. The town itself is delightful, with many traditional restaurants and chalets.

At night, a street in the ski resort of Les Gets, France

Les Gets(莱热/莱斯会)适合一家大小去游玩,里面有为新手而设的坡度较缓、绿树成荫的低滑雪坡,也有高一些陡一些的滑雪道。里面有五座山峰,山的侧面朝向四面八方,所以一天不同时间里都可以找到最佳的雪地。其中最好的是Praz de Lys,但主要是当地人在用(它不包括在主滑雪道里)。这里有空旷、漂亮的滑雪跑道,同时也有很多给非滑雪者和小狗行走的人行道。在那里可以一览对面勃朗峰的美景。每周二晚,Les Gets都会为游客提供免费的娱乐服务。在滑雪坡底会看到当地人在架起大锅加热葡萄酒,或者是一杯杯热巧克力;滑雪教练会上演各种滑雪特技,最后会以烟花结束狂欢夜。整个镇本身就是个充满欢乐惊喜的地方,里面有很多传统的餐厅和小木屋。

Unlike overcrowded, overpriced French ski resorts such as Courchevel or Val d’Isère,

Orcières-Merlette

in the Hautes-Alpes offers a friendly and reasonably priced yet varied and astonishingly beautiful set of slopes and activities. We stayed in the tiny village of Prapic, 35km from Gap, in a heartwarming B&B which served delicious, simple local food. There is plenty on offer for the non-skiing folks. We really enjoyed hiking and snowshoe walks.

Camonica valley, Italy

Aprica, Italy. View of a ski resort at sunrise.

Last winter I went skiing in Aprica, in the Camonica valley, Lombardy, with a group of people with mixed skiing abilities. Aprica itself is a beautiful place with lovely hotels and apartments, and the scenery is stunning. There are 50km of ski runs here, many ideal for beginners like me. I was a first-timer at skiing but the instructor at Scuola Italia (from €100 for five days’ tuition) was very patient and informative. My tip would be to make sure you have hold of the ski lift properly! I didn’t and I fell off, losing the rest of my party for quite a while.

Open air bath, Niseko, Hokkaido, Japan

Japan has some amazing resorts up on its northern island of Hokkaido, especially Niseko village, 90km from Sapporo, the island’s capital. The amount of snow the area gets annually is unreal, especially its powder snow, which the village is renowned for. The resort, on the slopes of the inactive Niseko-Annupuri volcano, also has its own onsen​​​​​​​ or open air baths, so you can refresh after a busy day and soak up the local culture. To make the trip less expensive, visitors should look to stay at less commercial hotels in the nearby towns.
