If you are looking for some winter fun, but don’t want to go too far from home, then you’ve come to the right place! We’ve put together a guide to help you find the best place to ski in November, based on elevation and facilities.

Best Places To Ski In November Based On Elevation

Elevation is an important factor to consider when choosing a ski resort. The higher the elevation, the better the snow conditions as there is more accumulation. As a general rule, the closer you are to the top of the mountain, the better the snow conditions and the colder it gets (generally speaking – it depends on the area!).

The following table details the elevation of all the major European ski resorts and gives an idea of the changes in elevation between noon and midnight on November 1st.

Elevation (m)

| Resort | Noon | Midnight |


Frasier | 680 | 740 |

Geriadorpe | 830 | 910 |

Marquise (elevation: 1177m) | 1097 | 1237 |

Mulroney | 1017 | 1117 |

Sestriere (elevation: 1178m) | 1043 | 1243 |

Val D’Or (elevation: 1019m) | 1017 | 1147 |

Valle Pistone (elevation: 992m) | 1008 | 1162 |

Vipava (elevation: 890m) | 1162 | 1325 |

Zoi Sadowski-Synnott | 1043 | 1121 |

Rothmann (elevation: 1041m) | 1010 | 1157 |

Best Places To Ski In November Based On Facilities

The quality of the facilities available at a particular resort is also important to consider. The main factor is whether or not the resort is equipped with the necessary facilities for advanced skiers. It is best to look for resorts that have the proper lifts and rails, excellent snow parks with rails, terraces, bars and hotels. Additionally, consider the size of the resort and whether or not it is busy during the ski season – the more people there are, the more chaotic the atmosphere, but also the more adventurous!

The following table details the ski-in/ski-out distance and altitude for all the major European resorts.

Ski-in/ski-out Distance (km)

Monte Rose (Val d’Or) | 6.0 | 8.8 |

Sestriere (Val d’Or) | 3.6 | 5.5 |

Geriadorpe (Wolksgang) | 18.3 | 23.4 |

Best Places To Ski In November Based On Terrain

The type of terrain that a ski resort provides is also important to consider. The ideal terrain should feature large open slopes, but with a bit of everything as there is more variety for the skier!

This variety leads to some impressive landscapes as the snowflake shape in the illustration below is what you will see when you visit Val d’Or (Valle d’Or in French)!
