General info

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.
The opening hours is the average number of hours per day that the resort is open for skiing. Long opening hours mean you can go for an early ski, or have a long sleep and go later.
The summit is higher above sea level. This means the mountain can have lots of snow, even in springtime.
The level of the base of the mountain above sea level.
A longer ski season offers more flexibility on when to visit.
