Oh La La! Val Thorens you’re a Star!

Weaving back down the mountain pass from Val Thorens, our heavenly-high base in the clouds for a week, a clear blue sky, I feel happy, yet so sad to leave the perfect ski conditions behind. May was less than two weeks away and yet at the highest resort in Europe we were skiing powder as fluffy as cotton wool, on almost empty runs. Just over two hours back to Geneva., our Jam Transfers Mercedes minivan speeding us back to the airport in luxury. The journey is as picturesque as any postcard; the lush green meadows in stark contrast to the snowy peaks fading further into the distance.

Hotel Riml – High Altitude Family Skiing in Hochgurgl, Austria

Family skiing in April can be some of the most glorious skiing. Sunshine in the mountains is so strong that without the chill in the air, it’s almost summer! For those of us who prefer winter to summer pursuits, April is just another chance to get some extra family skiing in. If you choose your destination wisely it can be the best of the year.

Don’t Ignore Galtuer – Family Skiing Austria

In the Paznaun region of the Austrian Tirol, at the end of a very scenic valley, 10 minutes ski bus from its better-known neighbour Ischgl, lies a gem, hidden to almost all the skiing English except a few in the know. Galtuer, is one of the nicest resorts that I’ve visited in a long time and I’ve skied the best that Europe has to offer from Courchevel to St Moritz, over and over. Perfect for families and singles alike.
