The Ten Best Pistes In The Alps

Snowboarding and skiing can be a great way to pass the winter months, and there is no better place to ski and snowboard than the magnificient European Alps. The Alps stretch across several countries, and there are many pistes from which one can choose to endure. Here are ten of the best and most popular pistes in the Alps:

1) Vallee Blanche: located in Chamonix, this is a world famous piste with which an incredibly fun day trip can be had. One must be wary of the huge glacier, and the beautiful scenery can always cause a dangerous distraction. Because of this, always be sure to take with you an experienced and knowledgeable mountain guide for assistance.

2) Combe Saulire: this piste is located in wonderful Courchevel, and always has immaculate snowing conditions. The path is very well groomed, and will make for an effortless cruise down the mountainside.
