Top 6 private jet skiing destinations in Europe

Winter is just around the corner but there are a few skiing locations that are already available for snow lovers.

One of the biggest advantages of operating private jets is the ability to travel to remote and difficult to reach areas that commercial aircraft can never fly to directly. Even if the flight lands nearby, the journey to the centre of the destination can be long and expensive.

Ski resorts are a good example of difficult access for remote commercial aircraft. The growing popularity of private jet use means that many skiers can make more frequent trips to some of Europe's most scenic ski resorts without feeling undue stress on a commercial aircraft.

Europe has some magnificent ski resorts, especially between the Alps and the Dolomites. The most spectacular resorts are in Switzerland, France, Austria, Germany and Italy.

1. St. Moritz, Switzerland

St. Moritz, Switzerland's first trademarked geographical destination, has been attracting visitors to its hot mineral springs for more than 3,000 years. A pioneer in many things, including the country's first ski school and first electric tramway, this luxurious 150-year-old resort has hosted two Winter Olympics (1928, 1948). As tradition has it, the winter holiday concept began with a trip to St. Moritz.

To reach St. Moritz, located high in the Engadine valley, the best option is to take a private charter directly in the area. The nearest airports are Milan and Innsbruck and are about three hours' drive away.

2. Courchevel, France

One of the most magnificent ski areas in the world: Les Trois Vallees in the French Alps. With four resorts nearby, the Courchevel area boasts one of the largest connected ski areas in the world, offering a mix of adventure, culture, comfort and even luxury.

Courchevel is considered the most luxurious of the four resorts that make up Les Trois Vallees, one of the largest connected ski areas in the world, with slopes to suit all levels and tastes. The resort has become synonymous with comfort where adventure is shared with world-leading entertainment, including championship racing and great dining options.

Travel options to the Courchevel area are limited, with private jets and helicopters being the preferred route. It is possible to get there by road, but the journey will be a long one.

3. Val D'Isere, France

Val D'Isere and Tignes, both in the French Alps, have come together to form one of the most beautiful ski areas in the world. Located in the Savoie area, skiers can enjoy the iconic Face de Bellevarde from November to early May. Many events are held here, such as the Winter Olympic races and the Criterium de la Tere Neige, in which world-class athletes compete.

Val D'Isere is in a remote area, far from commercial airports (110 miles from Geneva and 90 miles from Chambrey), so the best way to get there is by private jet.

4. Zermatt, Switzerland

Over 500 years old, the town of Zermatt is situated within sight of the Matterhorn. The slopes start from the 3,853-metre high starting point on the Klein Matterhorn. Mountain inns along the piste make it easy to rest on the descent, if necessary. The alpine resort town itself is car-free and steeped in tradition and beauty.

Private planes transport visitors from the ski resort to the Zermatt area. The nearest airport with a runway, Sion Airport, is more than 80 kilometres away.

5. Gstaad, Switzerland

"Get up, slow down". That's the motto of Gstaad. Julie Andrews once called it the only paradise left in a crazy world, and Gstaad, with its 220 km of ski slopes, glacier areas and surrounding slopes, is considered a paradise for skiers and tobogganers alike. The luxury and high culture of the alpine resort are world famous.

To reach Gstaad, a small village at an altitude of 1,050 m, you have to take a private plane to Saanen. 

6. Chamonix, France

Chamonix Mont-Blanc, with five interconnected ski resorts, offers the perfect winter getaway. Many consider the Chamonix valley to be the best freeride resort area in the world. The main 20km ski route circles the valley and offers some of the most breathtaking views of the surrounding alpine peaks.

Charter flights can also be arranged to accommodate groups of any size, so you can travel with friends or family. Plus, with plenty of luggage space, you can easily carry all your ski equipment, something that can be difficult when travelling on commercial flights.

And finally, private jets offer a level of luxury and comfort that is unmatched by commercial flights. You can be assured of a quieter, more relaxed journey when you fly by private jet, ensuring you arrive at your ski resort refreshed and ready to hit the slopes.
