A nearby airport is ideal, as journeying by car or bus through mountainous areas can take longer than on flat terrain.
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 has played host to the winter olympics. This means it is likely to have a range of professional slopes, other winter sports, and finally, good facilities and well developed transport links.
