The 2019/2020 annual issue of Ski & Snowboard with Kids, Australia’s only standalone family snow travel magazine, is hot off the press. The winners of its annual World’s Best Family Ski Resorts awards have now been revealed.

The resorts were judged by a panel of ski experts including our editor, Helen Hayes, Rachael Oakes-Ash (aka Miss Snow It All), Ben Cardenas from Travelplan, Rodney Muller from Skimax, Rachelle Matheson of Mogul Ski World, Belinda White from, Dale Goulding from Deep Powder Snow Holidays and Phil Osborn from Snow Travel Expo.

The judges voted across a range of categories for Australia, New Zealand, Japan, Europe, the USA and Canada. The scores for these categories were then used to determine an overall Best Family Ski Resort for each region.

The categories were Best for Beginners, Best for Advanced Families, Best for All-Round Activities, Best Village and Best Freestyle Resort. We also asked our readers to nominate their favourite resort in each region.

The resorts named as the overall winners in their regions were:

Australia: Thredbo
New Zealand: Cardrona
Japan: Niseko United
USA: Aspen Snowmass
Canada: Whistler Blackcomb
Europe: Val d’Isère
