BEAUTY OF IMAGES AND ART FOR YOU

Beautiful ski slopes (2)

My dear friends

At the beginning of the cold season (north of the earth), I was looking for you, the most beautiful ski slopes in all the countries of the world.

I hope you will like them and you will find pleasure:

Telluride is a remote, tastefully restored gold-mining boom town from the Wild West era, with old red brick and timber buildings. In 1985 a modern Mountain Village was built in the heart of the ski area. The two are linked by a gondola that operates until midnight. The ski area is renowned for its expert terrain, with steep slopes, mogul fields, glades and bowls. Intermediates will love the groomed blues, including the aptly named See Forever trail along a ridge with 360-degree views. There’s also ideal terrain for beginners, with lots of long, gentle green runs.                      [telegraph.co.uk]

Stuben is a tiny, unspoilt village with an old church and a few hotels, bars and shops. Heavy snowfalls add to the charm. It makes a very quiet alternative base for accessing St Anton’s famous ungroomed powder. Lech-Zürs, also covered by the Arlberg lift pass, is a bus ride away and has much better intermediate terrain. For 2013/14 a link with Warth-Schröcken has increased Lech’s ski area by over 50 per cent. Stuben also has its own shady area accessed by ancient chairlift – this has some of the best off piste for experts in the Arlberg.              [telegraph.co.uk]

Saas Fee, Switzerland

Nestled between 13 towering peaks measuring 4000m, Pearl of the Alps Saas Fee is a gorgeous traditional Swiss village which offers spectacular Himalayan-esque views. The village centre is traffic-free with the exception of electric vehicles so noise is kept to a minimum.

The picturesque ski resort of Saas-Fee is located at high altitude, with many of its slopes above 2500m, meaning that snow is almost guaranteed. It’s a perfect resort for beginners who can access easy slopes at the bottom, middle, and top of the mountain. Intermediates will enjoy it too but experts will find that challenging runs are lacking. Nightlife is vibrant   [onthesnow.com ]

Cortina d’Ampezo, Italy

Cortina d’Ampezo located in the Veneto region of Italy, north of Venice, has many virtues but its trump card is the incredible Dolomite scenery that surrounds it. Soaring dolomitic limestone that rises to over 3000m and which turns reddish-orange gives the resort a unique beauty. The location of the cable cars are another draw – they sit atop 100ft cliffs and attest to the fact that there is some serious skiing to be done here. Cortina is a large village and mountain restaurants, upmarket shops and bars are all bustling.                                                    [onthesnow.com ]
