Ski resort - choose a jigsaw puzzle to solve

A ski resort is a resort developed for skiing , snowboarding , and other winter sports . In Europe , most ski resorts are towns or villages in or adjacent to a ski area – a mountainous area with pistes ( ski trails) and a ski lift system . In North America , it is more common for ski areas to exist well away from towns, so ski resorts usually are destination resorts, often purpose -built and self -contained, where skiing is the main activity.
