10 best destinations in Europe for spring skiing

Skiing at the end of the season has many advantages. The weather is generally milder and sunnier, the days are much longer and the crowds have gone leaving quieter slopes to enjoy. It also means that there are many great ski accommodation deals to be had as resorts look to sell their empty beds at low prices. Spring skiing in Lech am Arlberg (Ski Arlberg)

The snowiest skiresort in the Alps

When it comes to skiing, one thing you really do need over anything else, is snow. You do not necessarily need a massive amount of it, but there's nothing quite as bad as having a ski holiday with insufficient or poor quality snow! What can guarantee good snowconditions? Weather is unpredicatable at best, especially the last few decades... The impact of climate change is not something many ski resorts want to talk about. There is no question, however, that the c-factor is a force to be reckoned with...

The leading wintersport websites in Europe

There's a huge amount of first-rate ski holiday advice and information out there. If you're planning on making the most of the snow and heading to the Alps this winter, it's worth persuing these websites for short-term ski condition and snow forecasts.

We at Skiweather.eu were very curious to find out if that is true. Last year we addressed a similar question regarding Dutch wintersport websites …

Lech Zürs

Free-nature skiing is the real attraction in Lech - Zürs

Skiers and boarders have woken up to the fact that Lech - Zürs am Arlberg is the snowiest A-list resort in the Alps. Zürs gets close to ten metres on average every winter season -double the average of Val d’Isere-, and Lech manages a still-impressive seven metres. Is Lech-Zürs the Eldorado of deep powder? The Arlberg skiarena is famous around the world as a …

Kitzbühel is living up to its title of best ski resort in the world

Above Kitzbühel, the slopes of the Hahnenkamm host the annual most thrilling downhill race. The legendary highlight of the FIS World Cup season was held the first time in 1931 and is since then known as the most dangerous and most prestigious challenge in the World Cup. Despite the justifiably fierce reputation of the Hahnenkamm and it’s Streif course the skiing around Kitzbühel is in fact …

Risoul

Excellent beginners and children area (lifts for beginners free) Good resort can ski over to Vars (intermediate or above only) Vars is not as nice as Risoul and you will want to come back. Lacks mountain Cafes but the atmosphere in the resort is Very..

Risoul

Zermatt

Zermatt has got the best combination of slopes, and fabulous restaurants - the 2 most important things for me. It can be very expensive, but there are well priced apartments, and you can cater for your self to make it all a bit cheaper. The skiing is..

Zermatt

Les Orres

This is one of the gems. Les Orres is a mid-sized French station. Two fast 6-man chairs then a short drag lift to one of the top stations gives access to non-stop 1200m rides, mainly on blacks and reds. Stop at the Zenith Cafe at 2500m for a snack, o..

Sauze doulx

Sauze d'Olux is mostly a red run resort and even the few blacks I'd really call reds. I went to all the resorts in the Milky Way: Pragelato Sestrieree, Sanscario, Clavier and a day trip to Montgenevre, in France. The lifts can shut at the first sign ..

Grimentz

A hidden gem of a resort - real swiss charm and good skiing for all abilities, ranging from long intermediate pistes to excellent off piste areas. High altitude runs too. Historic village centre one of the oldest in the country, with great character...

Gargellen

We have skied Gargellen three winters and hiked two summers. It is a great place with lots of fine intermediate skiing up the main lift from the town. It is a small village at the end of the road. Not much night life, so be prepared to entertain your..

Maybe the last dumpalert of the season?

Up to metre of snow fell in parts of the Austrian Alps last week. This week, there could be just as much as another cold front moves down from the north and settles over the region. It will also become much colder mid-week, especially on the northern side of the Alps, where snow could fall well into the valleys. However, the heaviest snowfalls over the next few days are likely to be in higher parts of the central Alps, including resorts such as Passo Tonale, Madesimo, St Moritz, Obergurgl, St..
