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..

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 ..

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 ..

Enjoying the high-life on the Stubai Glacier

The Stubai Glacier is the largest glacier ski area in Austria, and the most popular one in the Innsbruck region. The Stubai Glacier has 25 modern ski lifts, and over 110 kilometers of gorgeous ski-runs. The Stubai Glacier reaches an altitude of 3300m and therefore enjoys an exceptionally long ski season; from October through to June beautiful and well prepared slopes are at your disposal. The snow is usually of very high quality throughout the Winter, and the better part of Spring. The Stubai Glacier invites you..

Saalbach: a vibrant winter sport hot-spot

Saalbach is one of Austria’s premier ski resorts and probably one of the most popular and lively winter-sports holiday destinations in the Alps. It offers a wide range of runs and challenges for skiers of every level and a vibrant apres-ski. Originally comprising two sides of the long Glemm valley the resorts Saalbach and Hinterglemm have been connected to include Leogang and Fieberbrunn both one valley across. And even a further extension to Zell am See is planned. On the basis of the resort's officia..


The local ski area covers the resort of Marilleva (probably the ugliest ski station I've encountered). The skiing area can be greatly increased by buying the extended Madonna pass or the Bretna Skirama lift pass. I would describe the skiing as on the..

Breuil Cervinia

1st ever ski holiday and thought Cervinia was superb. Although the last week of the season, staff at the Petit Palais (crystal club hotel) were outstanding, nothing was too much trouble and all were really friendly and helpful. The slopes are excelle..

Breuil Cervinia

Spent the week of 16th to 23rd December in Cervinia. We drove there and had a somewhat quaint (in a sixties sort of way) apartment in the Theodule Block next door to the Petit Palais, very convenient for the lifts to Plan Maison. Weather was brillian..

Ischgl im Paznauntal

Having just returned from a week's fantastic skiing at Samnaun / Ischgl, I'd just like to say what a brilliant ski area it is. A brand new Fimbabahn up from the town, no queues at all and great snow accompanied by 6 days of sun-filled skiing. Enough ..

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..
