As yet not all of the world's mountain ranges can claim a place among The Best Ski Resorts - particularly in the more obscure regions of central Asia.
But you can ski on all five continents, there is first rate skiing in the Alps, the Pyrenees, the Rockies, the Appalachians, the Andes, the Japan Alps, New Zealand's Southern Alps and Australia's Snowy Mountains.
Although not yet reviews by the The Best Ski Resorts guide, there is also superb skiing in Iran, the Lebanon and Korea, even China has a rapidly growing ski industry. Along with ski resorts in Georgia, South Africa and Morocco's Atlas Mountains.
Europe is the cradle of skiing and the Alps are the mountains that most skiers and boarders know best. The Best Ski Resorts in the Alps have something for everyone.
While ski resorts in the alps are often bigger than ski resorts in North America, the ski resorts in the Rockies are frequently better organised, better groomed and more likely to have that essential ingredient: powder.
