Charlie Boscoe's 50 Favourite Ski Adventures in Europe

After 14 winters based in the Alps, here are the best 50 trips I've had on my skis. Needless the say, the "to do" list is still much longer than this "done" list!

Skiing every great line in Europe would require an endless budget and 10 lifetimes, so this list simply represents the best trips I've had in 14 years wandering around the continent in search of snowy adventures.

There's a reasonable geographical spread in this list but compiling it serves as a reminder of how much there is still be done - Central Switzerland, the Pyrenees and much of Italy have not had justice done to them. I will try to rectify this soon...

This guidebook might provoke some debate about what could/should be in it but great days are often measured by intangible factors so take it with a pinch of salt and enjoy creating your own list of favourites as the ski seasons come and go!
