Winter sports and partying always go together for young people like me and you. Even there are many ski resorts all over Europe, only in a few you can find this partying atmosphere.
St. Anton, Austria
They take partying seriously here – from late evening beers to all night owls ending up with having breakfast on the top of the mountain. St. Anton is one of the deepest snow bases in the Alps and fits both beginners and more experienced skiers. The ski resorts are full of bars and clubs to choose from, and some bars claim to sell 5000 litres of beer per day. Most bars are open until 3:00 in the morning.
Val Thorens, France
When thinking of Val Thorens people associate winer sports with parties. These ski resorts have a ski slope of more than 600 km. Snow can be found there from November until April. Some parties start from 2:00 p.m. already.
Zermatt ski resorts are home to one of the most famous Alpine mountains: the Matterhorn. It is home to some of the best skiing and nightlife available at any resort. The parties are known to get so high-spirited, that many skiers take a day off from the slopes after that.
Livigno has around 150 bars, which exceeds most of the ski resorts in the world. This resort has belonged to numerous countries and empires over the centuries and now has a distinctly Austrian flavour to it. It has so many bars to offer, that you need to be an experienced drinker visit all of them.
Val d’Isere, France
If you’ve seen pictures of crazy people dancing around in ski boots on top of tables, chances are they were taken in Val d’Isere ski resorts. There’s a bit of something for everyone, all kind of music and pool houses.
Mayrhofen in Austria is also a really popular destination for young people. The ski resorts are huge over there. You’ll never be bored in this town as there are over 78 restaurants, 36 bars and 4 clubs! Definitely one to put on your ski resorts bucket list if you’re a true ski-fan.
