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.

La Rosière: a good-value alternative to the mega-resorts of the Tarentaise

Set high above the Tarentaise valley La Rosière is a traditional style ski resort which enjoys stunning views across the Isere Valley and across to Les Arcs. It has the benefit of being sited on the sunnier yet still snow-sure southern side of the domain. It's south facing slopes give it the reputation as one of the sunniest resorts in France, while it's altitude and snow making facilities ensures guaranteed snow cover December till April.

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, ..

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..

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 ..

Kirchberg in Tirol

First of all I have to say I LOVE Kirchberg, but it might be good to highlight some of it's downsides. The biggest problem is that the Kirchberg-Kizbuhel-Pass Thurn skiarea does not provide many challenging slopes. The majority of the slopes are eas..

Zeer mooi en gezellig skigebied. Het enige nadeel is de sneeuwzekerheid. Dit wordt echter opgelost door de nieuwe lift naar Jochberg waar de pistes aan de noordkant liggen. Het dorp ademt gezelligheid uit. Voor de echte apresskiër is het verstandig o..

I was in Montgenenvre recently where the first snow fell on Sunday 24th September. Maybe this is a good sign for the winter? A massive amount of work is happening in Montgenevre to improve the facilities. The centre of the village is now an almost tr..

Les Arcs

One of the worlds best and then I have been to more than 100 ski resorts! It is actually 4 villages (not three) and then linked to another 5 in the La Plagne area. Together forming "Paradiski" with 160 lifts

Aussois is a small village resort. We enjoyed doorstep skiing at a fraction of the price we've paid at bigger resorts. The skiing was excellent but there are a limited number of slopes. The chairlift system is very good with no queues when we stayed...

Passo Tonale

Passo Tonale is a pretty town, nice and compact, with fair prices and good facilities. It's a resort aimed at families rather than the apres-ski crowd. The bars and clubs were dead as everyone had to go to bed early as the ski school's start at 9am! ..

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..
