Not driving home for Christmas?
Christmas is that time of the year when all the family comes together to celebrate. Even if the mood sometimes is threatened to turn bad, most family members will try to pull themselves together and maintain the good atmosphere. But celebrating in a very small place, which is not really capable to handle all the people who gather together, might even provoke some arguments.
It might be worth the thought of celebrating it somewhere else in Europe, where enough space is provided – and where the family is able to split up into one clique which likes to go skiing, another group which wants to go and drink hot chocolates in a café and the third party who might wants to wrap up warm and discover the old-town for souvenirs shopping.
There are many possibilities to plan your trip to somewhere else and you can always be sure that more ski deals can be found on Snowtrex.
The best place to travel to: Austria
Austria is the ultimate place to be and first country which comes up to everybody’s mind when thinking about winter holidays in Europe. It’s best suited for beginners and advanced learners. The main skiing regions there are:
- Carinthia – great for trips off the slopes
- East Tyrol – lots of sunshine and great hospitality
- Salzburger Land – home of the Kitzsteinhorn with its 3000m height
- Steiermark – famous for its world-class runs
- Tyrol – the heart of Austria when it comes to skiing and place where celebrities stay
- Vorarlberg – very traditional villages and impressive landscape
A very good alternative for winter travels: France
Another great place for skiing is France. Some people might be slightly overstrained with the superlatives this country has to offer: highest mountain of the Alps, largest skiing area worldwide and the highest cable bar.
For those who “are old-timers of skiing”, France might be the best solution.
