Cheap ski holidays in hundreds of ski resorts worldwide.
Everyone loves tree runs, whether it’s a tree lined piste in a lush alpine area or off piste terrain through the sloping glades. As well as tree areas being one of the most beautiful areas in a ski resort, these places are the best spots to head for when it is a white-out. Tree cover offers protection from the elements which allows you to see the slopes and surrounding better and lets you to carry on with your day instead of retreating back to your chalet. Tree skiing is fantastic as it is accessible for all abilities. There are ski resorts with plenty of tree lined blue pistes which are great for beginners and leisurely skiers, then experienced skiers can head off piste to weave through the powder and trees. North America and Canada offer the most extensive tree terrain as the mountains don’t reach the heights of Europe’s peaks. Even though tree lines are often low in some of the top European ski resorts, there is still some amazingly fun tree skiing to be had!

Lovers of tree skiing will adore Serre Chavalier as the resort is famed for its great snow conditions, freestyle terrain and wide trees to weave through. Experienced skiers will be captivated by the ski area around the secret chairlift (aka the Aguillette) over Chantemerle because of the fun off piste and trees to ski through near the 2800m Aguillette red piste.

Both the runs into La Daille and La Fornet in Val d’Isere are great when the weather closes in and easy to access from the pistes (and get back to the piste from) for those who aren’t too adventurous. Perfect after a huge dump of snow for laps of fresh tracks through the trees.

Whistler has some incredible gladed tree runs off the back of Crystal chair on the Blackcomb mountain. On Whistler mountain you can also ski the famous A-line downhill bike track through the trees which feels a bit like a wooded boarder cross course. Chosen by Laura, Digital Marketing Manager
Plus the off piste Million Dollar Ridge in Whistler is popular with locals; make sure you have a guide in these places as the routes are not on the map. Chosen by Christian, Senior Sales Expert

There are extensive alpine ski areas and exceptional natural freeride terrain in Chamonix. Over the back of the Tete de Balme chairlift there are some great off piste lines through the trees. Then at the beautiful Les Houches ski area there is lots more skiable tree terrain including Aillouds which is a long, wide, easy going run, plus the red runs down to Saint Gervais take you back through the trees.

The Stash in the Lindaret trees in Avoriaz is one of the great tree runs of the world. My tip is to stay skiers left and go all the way down to Ardent on a powder day. Unbeatable. When the trees get too tight, try and aim for the open glades and look out for the fun drops!
