Ski areas for experts

Nearly every ski area offers a kid's area, flat practise pistes and family-friendly runs. Yet, for those who are looking for a bit of a challenge, there are often only a handful of red or black pistes, where the more experienced riders can test their technical skills.

However, there are some ski areas which offer designated expert ski terrain which is ideal for pro riders to get some serious skiing done. Be it on the Arlberg, or on the Wilde Kaiser in Austria, in the Swiss Valais or in the 3 Vallées in France - in these special areas offering powdery snow fields or steep drops, experts and pros will find themselves amongst their kind. Technical riders can access mogul pistes, highly challenging descents and great freeride terrain to burn off steam. The here presented offers include only such ski areas which provide a challenge based on the difficulty of the terrain.
