We hear a lot about skiing and even more about ski accidents. The many cool ski resorts reserved only for professionals are certainly challenging the skills and limits of those bold enough to try them. Still, no matter how big the challenge, taking on abrupt slopes and amazing mountain scenery is a daring event many people love to live.
This is why there are special places on Earth where the professional ski challenges can be experienced to the maximum.
Here are the most famous places where you can make the most of living an experience filled with adrenalin.
Chamonix is perhaps the most famous European resort perfectly fit to offer you the most in professional skiing. Surrounded by mountains, in the heart of the beautiful Mont Blanc, this is a place where falling while skiing down the mountain may lead you to your death.
Called the Neverland of the most dangerous professional skiing, this is the place where you have to take on nature and where human life becomes a toy of the mighty frozen snow.
Les Grands Montets, Point de Vue and Pylônes are the three major slopes one faster than the other but not equally dangerous. If you want to enjoy the thrill offered by this ski resort make sure you hire a mountain guide to help you handle the abrupt mountain.
Whistler-Blackcomb Ski Resort is certainly magical when it comes to view, scenery and professional skiing thrill. The ski slope flows between Whistler and Blackcomb mountains and takes the skiers from Horstman Hut to the Seventh Heaven Express following the mountain line in an impressive descent.
There are also slopes for beginners on the both sides of the mountain. These are leaner but not so spectacular.
Verbier in Swizerland attracts every year the champions of professional skiing. The spectacular abrupt slopes are scalled Stairway to Heaven and Rock Garden challenge even the best of the best. The cherry on the top is the slope running in the back of the Mont Fort from whose top you can admire the amazing view and the Mont Blanc shining in the horizon.
Jackson Hole surely stands out from the crowd of the most challenging ski slopes. Here the adventure takes you in the wildest combination of mixed landscape filled with abrupt path, trees, rocky trampolines and walls of frozen snow you take on almost vertically.
This one is surely the redefinition of a ski challenge.
