Some of the very best ski resorts in Europe have been rated in a new report by the Guardian which has revealed there are winter sports destinations to suit any taste and budget in the weeks and months ahead.

First of all, the newspaper says one of the best resorts for intermediates is Meribel, which is part of the Trois Vallees and has a huge variety of skiing for every standard.

"The best snow conditions are usually found on the north-facing Mont Vallon and on the pistes off the ridge that separates Meribel from the Belleville valley," it advised.

Courmayeur is another option for people who want to sample the snow this year, and would make an ideal new year treat, the source notes.

It described Courmayeur as a "lovely old town" which has loads of character, with good skiing at the foot of Mont Blanc.

However, the newspaper noted that many visitors prefer the pedestrianised Via Roma with its tempting delis, boutiques and interiors shops

"As you'd expect, the après-ski scene is lively. Bar Roma is particularly popular, with comfy armchairs and sofas, and a free buffet in the late afternoon," it noted.

It also noted that Chamonix is a major winter sports destination that never loses its sheen and will continue to be a big favorite with people from all over the world in winter 2011-12.

"Chamonix, in the shadow of Mont Blanc, has some of the most challenging pistes and powder fields - but there's also plenty for intermediate and beginner skiers too," the source advised.

It also reminded people not to forget to sample the apres-ski at Chambre Neuf, where the party is "all about the live music", while there are also many tempting cocktails to try out and people can even try dancing on the tables if they wish.
