Where else to go

The Irish Times Magazine - - SKI SPECIAL -

Val Thorens This French town al­ways likes to stick it to its ri­vals by open­ing a week ear­lier. It’s also Europe’s high­est ski re­sort. A great spot, at any time of year.

Cervinia This Ital­ian re­sort shares a glacier with the Swiss town of Zer­matt which means you

can ski there right now. Ex­pect the town to have ac­quired a full snow jacket in De­cem­ber.

Hin­ter­tux If you want re­li­a­bil­ity, this Aus­trian re­sort is the place to head. Also, what a name. It also ben­e­fits from the Aus­trian skill with a snow can­non.
