Our colleague Hannes had a chance to visit Livigno and discover everything this ski resort has to offer. See why he fell in love!... Read more ›

In addition to the ski resorts themselves, more and more independent organisations are pushing for eco-friendly initiatives. But one of the most interesting concepts has to be the Tyrolean s...

This summer, Schladming will complete construction on two new 10-person gondolas, one on the Planai and one making the journey between Schladming and Rohrmoos. The new gondolas will astronomically increase the hourly capacity, ferrying skiers and snowboarders faster from the village up to the slopes.  The total cost for both lifts is €34 million.  The gondolas will be ready for the 2019-20 ski season....
