The world's 50 best ski runs
To make sure the snow hounds among us get equal treatment to the beach bums, we asked some of the world's top skiers, snowboarders and winter sports journalists to name their favorite ski run. Our panel included Andrew Weibrecht, Olympic medalist and U. They helped us come up with this list of some of the world's most exhilarating ski runs. Difficulty evaluations for each run were provided by the respective resorts and reflect a mix of rating systems.
While the resorts of Europe and North America understandably dominated the list, the novelty factor of skiing in some of the world's lesser known ski destinations resulted in a few less predictable recommendations.

Alpine skiing has been an event at the Winter Olympic Games since As ofthere were estimated to be 55 million people worldwide who engaged in alpine skiing. The estimated number of skiers, who practised alpine, cross-country skiingand related snow sports, amounted to 30 million in Europe, 20 million in North America, and 14 million in Japan. As ofthere were reportedly 4, ski areas, operating 26, ski lifts and enjoying skier visits. The predominant region for downhill skiing was Europe, followed by Japan and the US.
The ancient origins of skiing can be traced back to prehistoric times in RussiaFinlandSweden and Norway where varying sizes and shapes of wooden planks were preserved in peat bogs. Skiing was an integral part of transportation in colder countries for thousands of years. In the s, skiing was recorded as being used in military training. The Norwegian army held skill competitions involving skiing down slopes, around trees and obstacles while shooting. A skier following the fall line will reach the maximum possible speed for that slope.
A skier with skis pointed perpendicular to the fall line, across the hill instead of down it, will accelerate more slowly. The speed of descent down any given hill can be controlled by changing the angle of motion in relation to the fall line, skiing across the hill rather than down it.
Downhill skiing technique focuses on the use of turns to smoothly turn the skis from one direction to another. Additionally, the skier can use the same techniques to turn the ski away from the direction of movement, generating skidding forces between the skis and snow which further slow the descent.
Good technique results in a fluid flowing motion from one descent angle to another one, adjusting the angle as needed to match changes in the steepness of the run.
This looks more like a single series of S's than turns followed by straight sections. The oldest and still common form of alpine ski turn is the stem, turning the front of the skis sideways from the body so they form an angle against the direction of travel. In doing so, the ski pushes snow forward and to the side, and the snow pushes the skier back and to the opposite side.
The force backwards directly counteracts gravity, and slows the skier. The force to the sides, if unbalanced, will cause the skier to turn. Carving is based on the shape of the ski itself; when the ski is rotated onto its edge, the pattern cut into its side causes it to bend into an arc.
The contact between the arc of the ski edges and the snow naturally causes the ski to tend to move along that arc, changing the skiers direction of motion. This is an advanced form of speed control by increasing the pressure on one inside edge for example the right skithen releasing the pressure and shifting immediately to increasing the other inside edge the left ski.
Then repeat if necessary. Each increased pressure slows the speed. Alternating right and left allows the skis to remain parallel and point ahead without turning. The increase and release sequence results in the up and down motions of the upper body. Some skiers go down the top of moguls and control the speed by checking at the tops. This is how they can practically go straight down the fall line without gaining speed. The snowplow turn is the simplest form of turning and is usually learned by beginners.
To perform the snowplow turn one must be in the snowplow position while going down the ski slope. While doing this they apply more pressure to the inside of the opposite foot of which the direction they would like to turn. This type of turn allows the skier to keep a controlled speed and introduces the idea of turning across the fall line.
Modern alpine skis are shaped to enable carve turning, and have evolved significantly since the s, with variants such as powder skis, freestyle skis, all-mountain skis, kid's skis and more.
Freestyle skis are used by skiers who ski terrain parks.Carve long and hard this winter and explore some seriously long ski runs in the Alps. Not only do longer descents allow you more time on the slopes and less time waiting for lifts, but they start high, offer awesome views, and take you on a journey through some of the most diverse terrain on the mountain. See Live Webcams Across the Alps. On a powder day, the run can take quite some time with waist-deep snow to wade through in the flatter section.
Alpe d'Huez Nov. The 'Eleven' piste is, as you may imagine, a 6-mile long ski run. The first part of Eleven is advanced, then the ski run is consistently intermediate.

From here, ski the Aguille Rouge run down to the hamlet of Villaroger at 3, feet. This ski run is notable for its length 5 miles and vertical descent over 6, feet.
It is classed as black at the top, then about a third of the way down changes into a blue, but is still very demanding. The Aiguille Rouge is best tackled at the beginning of the day as queues to get on the cable car form quickly and the slope can become crowded. Good quality snow can almost always be found on the Aiguille Rouge; the upper half being above 9, feet while the lower half is north-facing so it holds the snow well.
Top of the Aguille Rouge 3,m in Les Arcs. Access one of the world's longest ski runs from the Klein Matterhorn, also known as the Piccolo Cervino. Europe's highest cable car whisks you up onto the Klein Matterhorn over gigantic glacial crevasses.

Alternatively, from the Klein Matterhorn, you can ski the descent down into Zermatt, Switzerland. Whichever direction you choose, Cervinia or Zermatt, this is one amazing run which begins with enormous glacial fields and drops into steeper, bumpy terrain.
Due to its altitude, the ski runs from the Klein Matterhorn are consistently skiable from late November to mid-April. The Cascades run is renowned for being the longest blue run in Europe.
