If you were to ask skiers and boarders what the most important question they want to know when booking a winter holiday, it would be whether the winter holiday resort has a good snow record.
That’s a very understandable question, if you are going to invest your hard earned cash on a winter sports holiday. Let’s face it, snow is an integral part of the trip, so who doesn’t want to choose high altitude over slightly lower resorts, in the pursuit of perfect snow conditions?
How many people check snow reports daily before their trip and agonise over whether they have chosen a resort that’s going to deliver the snow they need? Yes I can see you nodding!
However, choosing a snow-sure resort doesn’t always ensure a wonderful winter holiday. There is so much more to consider than go high or stay home.
There are many advantages in choosing high altitude resorts for that peace of mind factor. However there are certain downsides, which aren’t always apparent when doing your research, so please give them some thought.
So what do you do? What choice do you make when searching for the ideal ski resort?
What’s the secret to being in a cool resort that isn’t just about temperature, but the whole winter holiday experience?
My advice is simple.
You don’t have to stay high altitude to ski or board at high altitude. Enjoy the best of both worlds by combining all the advantages of high altitude with those of a medium altitude resort, in one brilliant winter holiday.
Don’t compromise – choose resorts that offer everything you want. Make sure you choose near high altitude areas, which offer super fast gondolas up to the high level pistes at 1800 – 2000 m and above.
Dip into the higher runs as and when you want, but don’t commit to being there all the time and enjoy the tree runs!
Choose a resort which has lots of other activities (Morzine is perfect for this with a jam-packed schedule of activities and events throughout the season!)
Once you start researching, you will find that there are several medium altitude resorts which boast proximity to high altitude ski areas.
A word of advice – do your research thoroughly and double check the following details:-
Here are some interesting facts about Morzine and why it’s a wonderful choice as a medium altitude resort.
Resorts that guarantee snow don’t always guarantee fun. Don’t miss out on an authentic ski or boarding holiday by thinking that high altitude is the only choice.
