Go skiing during the European summer

Credit: trendyoutdoors.com The winter might be over in Europe, but this doesn’t mean that ski enthusiasts have to wait until the next winter arrives. After all, skiing is not limited to the Northern Hemisphere and snowy European peaks. Did you know that you can enjoy ski retreats in the Southern Hemisphere too? Let’s take a look at some of the best ski resorts on the other side of the world.

Coronet Peak, Queenstown, New Zealand

Probably one of the best places in the world to go skiing during the European summer! There are ski resorts all over New Zealand, though the ones around Queenstown have the added bonus of having the great city life right at their doorstep. The fact that the scenery in and around the city is so beautiful makes Coronet Peak the perfect spot to enjoy the lovely views, the amazing slopes and the great accommodation in and around town.

Afriski, Lesotho

Who would have thought it was possible? But yes…it is! Skiing on the African continent is something very special. They might not have the longest slopes or the latest technology when it comes to ski lifts, but they do have the great African vibe and warmth, which makes up for it. Afriski puts Lesotho firmly on the skiing map and it plans to stay there for a very long time. On the mood for something chilly, or something frozen perhaps? If icy delights and great winning opportunities tickle your fancy, why not try our beautiful winter slot, Frozen Diamonds? This icy delight guarantees a winter of wins – all year round!

Tiffindell, South Africa

While we’re still on the African continent, why not talk about this South African ski resort? Tiffendell is (like Afriski) smaller than most ski resorts you would know, but that doesn’t mean there’s less to do, or less fun to have. Skiers from all over come here to enjoy the winter bonanza. Since 2014 Tiffendell has hosted the only international ski races ever held on the African continent, bringing top skiers to South Africa. For the kids there’s even the Ski Academy making this the perfect family resort. Credit: traveller24.news24.com

Bariloche, Argentina

Located in Argentina’s northern Patagonia region, this small city ensures that Argentina is an internationally renowned ski destination as it boasts some amazing mountains on which the avid winter lovers can have endless fun. The most well-known ski resort is Cerro Catedral (also know as Catedral Alta Patagonia) and it’s just 20 kilometers from downtown Bariloche. And to make it even more special, there’s a lot of Swiss influence with chalet-style buildings and several chocolate shops. I can’t find any reason why not to go for your next winter holiday.
