Snow farming secures planned opening of the ski season

With the commercial increasing pressure on ski resorts to open early and with good skiing conditions, snow farming has been recognized as one of the most powerful and eco-friendly way to achieve this. Faced with rising temperatures, ski resorts are preserving last year’s snow by storing it under tarps or saw-dust. It’s a low-tech way to start the next season with an inherited base and colder ground temperatures. The methods have proven successful for multiple resorts and are an important part to their success in the weeks before Christmas.

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..

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..

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 Ski Area is famous around the world as a destination for serious skiers, and Lech is a key part of it. Lech-Zürs is an excellent place for beginners and intermediates with perfectly maintained slopes ..

Alpe D’Huez...Alps at their best

Alpe d'Huez is one of France's biggest and best-known Alpine ski resorts, ranking alongside other top French resorts such as Val d'Isère for extent and variety of slopes. Alpe d’Huez lies on a sunny plateau, with amazing slopes in all directions reaching to the far corners of this ski area and neighbouring villages of Auris, Villard Reculas, Oz en Oisans and Vaujany. The slopes go down to 1100m and up to 3330m, while its glacier ensures snow cover is sufficient for a long season that stretches from early Decembe..

Peisey Vallandry

Vallandry is great for lower intermediates and above and Les Arcs and La Plagne was easily reached. Would suggest lower intermediates take the Les Arcs/Vallandry pass as there were many easy cruisey blues on the Les Arcs side. Resort itself is quiet ..

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..
