Intermediate skiers need a perfectly balanced ski area which offers challenges and, at the same time, some easier slopes for those times when confidence might be lacking! Even though intermediate skiers may have abandoned the practice area a long time ago, a nice wide blue or a gentle red run never did anyone any harm! At the sight of a black run, an intermediate skier’s heart starts beating faster but it no longer seems impossible! The intermediate skier therefore needs a relatively large and varied ski area with many possibilities to explore.
In the Alps, there are many ski resorts where intermediate skiers will feel right at home. A wide range of blue runs for gentle cruising, some long red runs and the occasional black run for the challenge make the perfect recipe for the perfect holiday. We have chosen a few ski holiday destinations where advanced skiers will gain confidence and make great progress.
