Skiing is a fun activity, but it takes dedication and practice to master this sport. If you're not careful, your supposedly fun skiing experience may lead you to a horrifying accident. That's why before you run to the slopes, make sure that a fully qualified individual has taught you the ropes, and of course, it also helps that you're in an environment friendly and challenging enough for newbies like you.

But where to go? Here I've rounded up some of the top ski resorts worth traveling to for beginners:

Aspen Snowmass, Colorado. In the US, Aspen is a famous ski destination, and this ski resort, in particular, is beautiful and inviting enough for first timers. They have four ski areas-- Snowmass, Aspen Mountain, Aspen Highlands and Buttermilk. All of these areas have varying levels of terrains for everyone, and for beginners and kids, Snowmass and Buttermilk are the places to be.

La Rosière, France. If you're in France with your kids and they want to try skiing, La Rosiere is an excellent choice of destination. They have packages for ski lessons and equipment rentals, and their slops are pleasant to glide on for beginners. This is a massive ski resort linked by two centres and accessible via a path through the trees using air lifts.

Steamboat Springs, Colorado. If you want to learn skiing like a pro, Steamboat Springs have professional ski instructors that will teach you all the techniques to ski like an Olympian. With their rigorous yet fun training programs, beginners will feel at ease on learning how to glide through the snow. And for a more in-depth learning, there are certain terrains which the resort have shaped purposely to fit the level of beginners.

Saalbach-Hinterglemm, Austria. With over 8 ski schools to choose from, beginners need not feel intimidated by the vast ski slopes and terrains surrounding the resort. There are slopes solely integrated for first-timers-they are located near the villages so pit stops are guaranteed. Hailed as one of the best ski areas in Europe, it's not a bad idea to go here for a fun ski holiday.
