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 resort has dedicated on site childrens clubs, so no need to worry about a babysitter.
The level of the base of the mountain above sea level.
The resort is pet-friendly, so if you like you can bring your dog along if you need to.
A longer ski season offers more flexibility on when to visit.

Ski trail difficulty is measured in "percent slope", a system in which a 100% slope equals a 45-degree angle. Low difficulty trails (marked with a green circle) have a slope gradient between 6% and 25%. Resorts with a lot of low difficulty trails are ideal for beginners.
The average price of a one day "all access" ski pass at the resort.
Cross-country skiing is an Olympic sport that provides great exercise for both the upper and lower body. Resorts that keep the cross-country skiing trails open for the general public attract professional and casual skiers.
The total number of ski lifts available at the resort (all types; tow lifts, surface lifts and air lifts).
Air lifts describe all off-ground types of ski lift, such as cable cars or chair lifts. These are better, particular for travelling long distances, as they can transport skiers faster and in larger quantities than surface lifts.
Some resorts have recommended off-piste routes for very experienced skiers.

Leisure

Rather than having to trek back to the base of the mountain, it is a lot more convenient to have restaurants and bars on the slopes.
