The winter period can be somewhat daunting if you’re stuck in a place that has little to offer in terms of outdoor activities. What’s the fun in having time off work when you’re stuck inside the house due to a lack of things to do in your local area?

Axar.az reports citing CNN.

If skiing is your thing, then you may want to consider one of the most beautiful ski resorts in the world as your next holiday destination.

1.The famed Valais village of Zermatt sits below the iconic Matterhorn peak. This car-free resort offers upscale boutiques, world-class skiing and a thriving apres-ski scene.

2.The classy village of Wengen, which can only be reached by cog railway or cable car, gazes out across the deep Lauterbrunnen valley and up towards the famous 4,000-meter peaks of the Eiger, the Monch and the Jungfrau.

3.The Tyrolean town of Kitzbuehel hosts the historic Hahnenkamm race every January, when the world's best ski racers fling themselves down a steep ribbon of ice -- 40.4 degrees at one point -- known as the Streif.

4.Named "Austria's most beautiful village" in a 1983 television contest, Alpbach continues to maintain its cutesy homespun looks and traditional architecture. All upper floors of new buildings must be clad in wood to preserve the bygone feel.

5.The quaint old town of Courmayeur sits on the Italian side of the Mont Blanc tunnel. The skiing begins from a sunny plateau above the town with stupendous views of more than a dozen of Europe's highest peaks.
