Leaving the EU raises costs of ski holidays for Brits

Britains are becoming increasingly concerned about the effect that leaving the EU will have on their ski holiday. It seems certain that once Britain invokes Article 50 of the Lisbon Treaty -which has never been used before- travelling to, working in and doing business with the EU skiresorts will have severe implications. Britain and the EU will face a complex negotiation process which may last up-to two years. Although the talks will center on the Brexit, it is very unlikely that Britain will get a pre..

Arlberg

Ski Arlberg is challenging French skiresorts in the league of legends

The Flexenbahn cableway will open in the winter of 2016/17 and will connect the skiarenas of Lech / Zürs-Schrocken / Warth with Sankt Anton / Sankt Christoph / Stuben. The new link between Zürs and Stuben / Rauz will make Ski Arlberg the largest contiguous skiing area in Austria with 305km of ski slopes served by 87 ski lifts. The Flexbahn gondola is capable of transfering 10 passengers on the 6 minute journey. It comes with large panoramic windows to take in the spectacular views of the Arlberg Pass...

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.

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 …

Zermatt

January 16, 2007 - 01:46 PM Jon Jones from UNITED KINGDOM Just spent a week in the chalet Mazot in Zermatt with Inghams. Hosts and accommodation was very good, as was the food. Only small criticism was that the dinning room is a little cramped and t..

Courchevel

The Courchevel collection of resorts would be difficult to beat for me. What one doesnt have, can easily be accessed at another. 2 downsides: long transfer time from Geneva; and doesnt match the Austrian atmosphere. Courchevel generally is absolutely..

Sankt Anton am Arlberg

OK, St Anton is what all the guide books say, difficult, challenging, an off piste paradise, however no one anywhere has mentioned the fact that the Austria power supply is carried through the Alberg pass. I found it a little strange skiing past the ..

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..
