Ski areas for beginners - wide and easy pistes!

All beginning is hard - but it doesn't have to be that way. If you are heading towards the piste for the first time you will find it all a whole lot easier if you choose the right ski area with the right conditions. Beginner ski areas are characterised by various factors. For instance the choice of pistes. Blue slopes are not so steep and tend to be nice and wide as to provide lots of space for the first few swings. A large selection of blue piste close to the valley is therefore ideal for beginners. Special beginner areas, often separated from the rest of the pistes, is great for children as the areas provide better security measures. Magic carpets and rope tow lifts take you up the slopes here. There is nothing to hold you back, so get going under the attentive surveillance of professional ski and snowboard tutors.

Here we present you with a selection of ski areas which are ideal for beginners due to their large choice of blue pistes, special beginner areas and good ski schools - ideal conditions! The main advantage of booking your holiday with us: in most resorts you can add equipment hire directly to your booking and so you are well-prepared and can get started immediately with lots of fun in the snow.
