Without further ado, let’s explore the most beautiful ski resorts that you can easily reach by private jet, with family or friends.

When visiting, be sure to take the Seventh Heaven Express to Jersey Cream Bowl for the famous Saudan Couloir, or bootpack to the top of Blackcomb’s Glacier Chair for the famous Spanky’s Ladder trail. When the snow is deep, head to the Crystal Ridge lifts to slalom through the trees, or hike to the Flute Bowl from Symphony for some cross-country skiing.

Imagine waking up in the morning and enjoying a buttery French croissant before putting on your skis and sliding down the freshly groomed slopes. By midday, you’re enjoying an espresso in Italy. This idyllic scenario is possible on the Via Lattea, or “Milky Way”, which encompasses eight villages in the Italian and French Alps. The Italian side of the ski area includes the resorts of Pragelato, Sansicario, Cesana, Clavière, Sauze d’Oulx and Oulx. The French side includes the ski area of Montgenèvre.

This is a particularly large resort, so we recommend planning your day’s skiing to ensure you don’t get stuck in a shuttle or taxi after the lifts close. The intermediate resort of Sportina is a convenient place for beginners, while the nearby Sauze d’Oulx area offers exciting tree skiing. If you’re into carving, head to the women’s Olympic downhill track at Sansicario, used at the 2006 Turin Winter Olympics. Then spend some time in Clavière, where the Italian and French borders meet.
