Rupert Longsdon, Founder and CEO at the Oxford Ski Company comments:

“Ski season is very nearly upon us, so it’s been quite fun to compile the biggest and best around when it comes to world-class ski resorts. Whilst some of these are “holiday of a lifetime” quality, we all like a little bit of escapism and dreaming! For our clients, Europe very traditionally hosts some of the most visited ski resorts, but when we look at the most luxurious across the world, it’s nice to see other locations like Japan, North America and Canada feature for a reminder that there really are some exemplary, beautiful skiing spots all around the world… and this only scratches the surface.”
