What is wind chill factor?

The Wind Chill Factor is commonly referenced in weather reports. However, few of us have a firm grasp on the meaning. Wind chill is the meteorological term used for explaining how the wind can make us feel even colder (chillier) than the actual temperature. Basically the Wind Chill Factor describes how cold you will feel when you step outside when the temperature is below 10°C and the wind speed is above 4.8kph. On a more scientific term the Wind Chill Factor is a measurement of the total conductive heat transfe..

Hauser Kaibling : most beautiful slopes in the eastern Alps

Hauser Kaibling is the local skiarea of Haus im Ennstal, nestled in the beautiful Schladming-Dachstein region. This corner of Austria resides somewhat under the radar of many winter sport enthusiasts but is definitely worth visiting. Hauser Kaibling has not yet been discovered by mass-tourism which is remarkable considering it's close proximity to the Czech Republic, Slovakia and Germany. Residents of nearby Salzburg Stadt cherish this little gem as Haus im Ennstal provides them with an easy-accessible getaway. ..

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 Ski 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 Ski World Cup. Despite the justifiably fierce reputation of the Hahnenkamm and it’s ‘Streif’ course the skiing around Kitzbühel is in fact hardly demanding. It's varied ski terrain especially suits intermediates and those who love cruising.

Obertauern: Austria's snow bowl

Austria’s little known gem, Obertauern, is hardly an hour's drive from Salzburg Airport. It has an infectiously friendly laid-back atmosphere and with generally quieter slopes than the big name resorts it’s no surprise that this destination is gaining in popularity fast. Situated in the Salzburgerland region of the Austrian Alps and nestled within the scenic peaks of the Tauern mountain range, Obertauern was originally just a mountain pass before it became a ski resort. At 1750m it is one of Austria's highest sk..

Sankt Anton: for those who like to mix it up a bit

Regarded as the cradle of modern Alpine skiing, Sankt Anton is rightly established as one of the world’s big-name ski resorts. And for a good reason: it combines world-class skiing with a bustling apres-ski. Famous for its beauty and breathtaking scenery. Sitting in a narrow valley at the foot of the Arlberg pass Sankt Anton is a long, sprawling place, with bags of traditional character.  Bustling with activity throughout the day and late into the night.The vast ski area is serviced by several modern cablecars, ..

Verbier

I don't know why people say slope skiing in Verbier is difficult and badly planned. Actually, I found it extremely easy: a lot of red runs should be considered blue and there are black runs which are almost flat. I think the skiing is great, the Sav..

Ischgl im Paznauntal

First time to the resort with family and was hugely impressed. Massive amounts spent on infrastructure and everything works. Mixture of Europeans, predominantly Austrian and German with a smattering of Brits and Russians. Russians mainly come in Janu..

Ischgl im Paznauntal

We went to Ischgl for Easter 2008. This was my first ski trip to Austria, and I was happy that it lived up to its reputation for good friendly service. Ischgl is not a cheap resort as a rule, but some things were cheap if that's not a complete contra..

Flims Laax Falera

My favorite thing about Flims Laax is the fact that after you catch the cable cars to the top of Cassons you can weave your way across the interconnected mountains all day then go back to Flims without skiing the same run twice! The skiing is so enjo..

Folgarida

The local ski area covers the resort of Marilleva (probably the ugliest ski station I've encountered). The skiing area can be greatly increased by buying the extended Madonna pass or the Bretna Skirama lift pass. I would describe the skiing as on the..

Ruka

I chose Ruka because it seemed to have snow late on in the season and it wasn't too large for first timers. It was fab - all of us managed to learn to ski or at least stand up and get to the bottom of a run without falling over. The instructors were ..

The snowiest skiresort in the Alps

When it comes to skiing, one thing you really do need over anything else, is snow. You don’t 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. Se..
