With the wonderful news on the birth of our future king, we here at www.cheapskiholidays.com felt very patriotic and this then in turn got us thinking about our top resorts, fit for a king. The British Royal Family is and have been keen and avid skiers for many years and many a royal engagement has been made on the sunny slopes of Europe ski resorts. We have drafted up a list of resorts where you may rub shoulders with royalty and resorts we are sure our future King George will be party to as soon as he is old enough to ski.
Famous as Price Charles’ favourite resort, Davos and Klosters are two extremely high altitude resorts linking over 320km of world class skiing. Suited to every level of skier and covering 6 different mountain ranges linked by a state of the art lift system and covered on one area lift pass too. Charles and Diana are rumoured to have got engaged here, later followed by Andrew and Fergie and the first resort Wills took Kate, Klosters and Davos is definitely a firm favourite with our Royals.
