London, XX.12.2017 – With snow coming in thick and fast at many ski resorts around the world, the temptation to escape the city to breathe in the fresh mountain air and hit the slopes is becoming increasingly hard to ignore. While top resorts such as Chamonix, Verbier and St Anton are undoubtedly popular, why not explore somewhere a little more off the beaten piste to escape the crowds this winter? Hotels.com®has compiled a list of some fantastic, alternative skiing destinations and hotel stays for an unforgettable holiday this winter season.

Germany is normally better known for its bratwurst than its skiing, however Garmisch – Germany’s best ski resort – actually has two separate ski areas, including a glacier, meaning there is plenty of room for more confident skiiers and boarders to show off their tricks! The Reindl’s Partenkirchner Hof offers the perfect base to explore this beautiful Alpine side to Germany. The small family-run hotel which prides itself on its charming hospitality celebrates Bavarian tradition and cuisine.
