Ski the Alps Special Section
Snowbound’s “Ski the Alps” section starts off with 11 great reasons for groups to plan a winter vacation in the Alps, the very place where the sport got its start. With resorts built around centuries-old villages, visitors are able absorb history and traditions while experiencing the original après-ski and reveling in perfect snow, which is generally powdery and fluffy well into spring.
Articles in this special section, each spotlighting four top resorts, include:
- Enjoy the Alps in Austria
- Enjoy the Alps in Switzerland
- Enjoy the Alps in Germany
In addition to ski information, these country profiles offer suggestions for off-the-slope activities at each resort, plus fun city excursions.
Rounding out the coverage is a page with practical tips and a map that pinpoints Alpine resorts. It touches on how to get there, when to go, money matters, languages spoken, lifts and gondolas, lift tickets, equipment rentals and ski schools.
