Åre, Sweden

A really nice mountain to ski on. When the lake is frozen, there are lake races, ice fishing and hockey. The town is really cute and Christmassy

Courchevel, France

Very high end and expensive, with wonderful hotels, amazing food and a beautiful mountain with really nice powder skiing.

St. Moritz, Switzerland

The town is beautiful, and there are plenty of après ski places. It would be so nice to have a couple of days off so my boyfriend and I could just free ski.

Zermatt, Switzerland

I’ve been there skiing with my parents. It’s a really cool, unique place with a glacier that you can ski on in the summer.

La Cortina d’Ampezzo, Italy and the Austrian side of the border

It has perfect skiing and the topography is beautiful, with the rock formations of the Dolomites. It’s a place we always love to go to.

I’d like to go back when it’s dark most of the day and feels like Christmas. It’s a really different and cool thing that I think a lot of people would enjoy. Last year in Levi I saw a small green shift in the sky and I’d like to go back outside the town to see all the different colors of the Northern lights.
