Doom and gloom for low-altitude ski resorts

Snow in Europe's low-altitude ski resorts will become a rare event according to recent research. Bare Alpine slopes could be a much more common sight in the future. The poor snow cover below 1500m of snow-scarce winters, like we have seen the last few years, can be expected to be the norm rather than the exception. Towards the middle of the century there will only be a few days with snow at low elevations and winter sports could potentially be forced to begin up to a month later than they do today. Mor..

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.

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.

Nice, friendly, old Austrian atmosphere. Some old lifts but long wide slopes for beginners and intermediates.

Berwang

Het is beslist niet verkeerd, een leuk ogend plaatsje, maar ik vind Berwang toch te beperkt c.q. te klein. Bovendien zijn de liften al een beetje "out of time". Ze hadden hier meer in "mee" moeten gaan. (Innovatie). We zijn met kleine kinderen hier g..

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..
