The height of the mountain is the difference in height between the lowest and highest point. Tall mountains can offer longer pistes, better views, and often better snowfall.
A nearby airport is ideal, as journeying by car or bus through mountainous areas can take longer than on flat terrain.
3.summit height above sealevel

2500meters

The summit is higher above sea level. This means the mountain can have lots of snow, even in springtime.
