And if one part every winter flies to the south closer to the sea, the other - with impatience waiting for winter cold and snowfall, to rather get on skis. The choice of ski resorts is great enough, and so many beginners are faced with a difficult decision, where to go next time.
How to choose a ski resort in Europe, which should be taken into account when choosing a ski resort.
Due to its geographical position, theTerritory of Russia there are not so few places where it is possible to roll off the mountain with a breeze. Almost every region has its own ski slopes and bases, but the most famous regions for skiing are Krasnoyarsk, Kamchatka and Sakhalin. The flights will cost you not cheap, and the level of service, unfortunately, is not so good so it is better to think about visiting the ski resorts in Europe.
To begin with, you should determine the listThe criteria that play the most important role for you. For example, you are a beginner skier, which means that you will hardly be approached by complex trails, overgrown with wood, winding with obstacles and springboards. You may need the help of a personal instructor or equipment rental. Or, besides skiing, you will still be interested to see the competitions or even participate in them, to visit the party. Or, on the contrary, you want to stay away from the noise, fuss, and that around you there are only mountains, snow and alpine houses resembling Christmas toys. Based on all these requests and wishes, it is necessary to choose a suitable resort.
When choosing a resort, make sure to pay yourAttention to its location, as well as the location of the ski area. The fact is that many resorts are much lower than the main ski area. It is understandable, because the temperature depends on the altitude. And if an easy minus to 5 degrees is easily tolerated and does not cause discomfort to vacationers, then in the negative 20, only the most inveterate skiers can remain in a good mood. Also consider the height of the ski area and the amount of snow. It is best to choose the golden mean - about 1.5 km at sea level. You should also take into account the time of your visit to the resort: at the beginning and at the end of the season the lowest point of the skiing area should be higher, this ensures you have a good snow cover.
When choosing a resort, find the scheme of the slopes, all of themAre marked by color - one or several. Different colors denote the complexity of the route: red - simple, blue - medium, black - complex. And in the choice proceed from the fact that for each member of the group there were enough slopes for skiing. Often newcomers have only one or two training slopes, skiers more professional already want diversity. For fans of jumping from the springboards there are skye parks and safaris, but usually tourists of this level already know where to go next time.
Beginners skiers, first going toEuropean ski resorts, should take into account the geographical factor. The fact is that some resorts have a fairly wide network of slopes for skiing, often located not on the same mountain, but on several slopes. And to get there, you have to make the path on the bus as part of the group. Of course, this is not very convenient, since you depend on time and other people. Therefore, when choosing a resort, pay attention to this factor: it is better that all the slopes were nearby and you could get to them yourself without removing the skis.
Another important nuance is the resort itself, andMore precisely the whole city or even a few towns that make it up. Usually among the towns there is a capital: most of the tourists live there, the largest number of parties and holidays, the best choice of restaurants, shops and other entertainments, but there is more noise. The provincial towns are quieter and quieter, but may be inferior to the capital in location. Ideally, your place of residence should be located below the slope, where you will ride most of the time.
When choosing a ski resort there are manyCriteria and nuances, which are difficult to list in one article. But the choice is wide enough, and even the most pretentious tourist will find a resort for his taste and wallet.
