Schlick 2000 A hidden gem in Innsbruck’s backyard

Schlick 2000 is the ski arena of Fulpmes, nestled in the stunningly beautiful Stubai Valley. Of all the skiresorts in Tyrol this is probably not the most obvious destination for wintersporter enthousiasts. Why that is? I have absolutely no idea! Residents of nearby Innsbruck -just 20 minutes away- probably do not regret that Fulpmes has not yet been discovered by mass-tourism. Schlick 2000 provides them with a quiet getaway in their own backyard. Although Innsbruck has several attractive ski opportunit..

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, ..

Les Gets: a lovely traditional Alpine village for families

Les Gets lies in the Massif du Chablais at the western end of the massive Portes du Soleil ski area, just below Lac Léman and is therefore easy to reach from Geneva. Les Gets is a great place for a last-minute break. With access to 650 km of slopes spread across 12 villages in both France and Switzerland, the vast Portes du Soleil area offers near-limitless skiing amid fantastic scenery. Border crossings are seamless. There’s something for everybody in Les Gets and the Portes du Soleil ski area: tough ..

Zell am See

Zell am See was beautiful! Zell is a small ski area but well worth a visit. The lake was frozen and could be walked and skated on. if you're more than a beginner you'll want to go to Kaprun (lovely powdery runs, awful bus trip) or Saalbach (bus trip ..

Les Deux Alpes

Sfeervol en uitgestrekt skigebied, zeker voor beginners. In het dal veel groene en blauwe pistes, en op de gletsjer (2600-3600m) ook veel brede, blauwe en rode pistes. Daartussenin een aantal zwarte pistes. Veel skiliften, weinig wachttijden. Erg zon..

Canazei is een heerlijke plaats. Leuke winkels en restaurantjes en - voor een dergelijk dorp - een prachtig skigebied. De pistes zijn goed bereikbaar. Het kan echter wel druk zijn bij de liften en bussen. De apres-ski is vrij gematigd, 's avonds is h..

We were pleasantly surprised by what we found in Gerlos and the Zillertal Arena and I will try and sum up our experience by listing the positives and negatives. To give it some context, we are in our early thirties and are advanced skiers. Positive..

Les Deux Alpes

We had great skiing conditions during the second half of march. Plenty of slopes to keep us entertained for the week and there were no big queues at any of the lifts, not even at the weekends. Some very good blues and reds to contend with from the gl..

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..
