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..

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.

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, ..

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..

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. ..

Wonderful austrian resort. Ideal for beginners and families. No english spoken as resort is dominated by german, austrian and dutch families. However this is not a problem as when you try to speak german, kind dutch holidaymakers help out. Very popul..

Livigno

Livigno is voor mij het beste skigebied van Italië. Het dal heeft een idieaal microklimaat : koud, droog en zonnig. Dan zou je zeggen dat het niet sneeuwzeker is, maar dit komt door het zeldzaam lang komdal waar de wolken bij zware sneeuwval blijven ..

Les Carroz

Stayed in the Grand Massif ski area at Les Carroz in half-term Feb 2007, just before the decent snow finally arrived. Options were limited by the snow cover, with the one open resort run crowded and heavy going - the lift down was a much better optio..

Serfaus Fiss Ladis

Wij gaan al 5 jaar naar fiss, maar overnachten dan in ried. (Onder aan de berg). Het bevalt ons heel goed. 's ochtends voor de deur van het appartement de bus in stappen en met een kwartier voor de skiverhuur. Dan is het nog zo'n 30 a 40 meter "..

Bormio

Having been told to "go skiing or something" because my wife's holiday did not coincide with mine or that of my son, we returned to Bormio this half term. We flew out Monday, skied three days and flew back on Friday. Fabulous. Great weather..

Bansko

We visited Bansko last year, in the low season and had a fabulous time. The skiing was great for intermediates and it was not crowded at all. It really is excellent value for money. Some of the mehanas in the old town are lovely and the food was deli..

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..
