Non-ski activities

Ski holidays are not just about the skiing (don't let the name fool you). There are plenty of things that make skiing so amazing from the mountain food to the music and lively bars but it's the non-ski activities that can really elevate your next ski holiday to new levels.

Whether you take a day off from skiing to chase some winter pursuits or go tobogganing instead of hitting the bars after your ski day, putting some time aside for a little extra fun can be super rewarding.

Here are a couple of experiences that you will absolutely love:

  • Ziplinging (Grindelwald and Whistler spring to mind with some incredible zip line courses)
  • Ice karting or driving (try Val Thorens or La Clusaz)
  • Tobogganning (most resorts have great tracks)
  • Husky sledging (Banff has got to where the crown for this)
  • Paragliding
  • Bob sleigh
  • Rock climbing
  • Cross country skiing
  • Snow rafting
  • Ice fishing
  • Ice diving
  • The list could go on and on...
  • We've put together a collection of our favourite places to stay in resorts with non-ski activities coming out of their ears. We challenge you to try something new on your next ski holiday:
