Winter sports

Winter sports in Central and Northern Europe

In the lower elevations of Central Europe, a blanket of snow can only form temporarily during the winter months, which can also be used for winter sports. The situation is different in the higher altitudes of the low mountain ranges - above about 700 to 800 meters - and especially in the Alps above 1000 to 1200 meters. In these regions it is relatively snow reliable in high and late winter and therefore there are mainly numerous winter sports areas in which sometimes even international ski tournaments take place.

A skiing holiday not only ensures that you can enjoy nature to the full, it also keeps you physically and mentally fit. However, you shouldn't start on a large, steep ski slope without preparation and practice, but rather practice a little on smaller slopes first.
In general, when doing sporting activities in the mountains you have to reckon with frequently changing weather conditions, with significantly more wind than in the lowlands. Clothing adapted to winter conditions is therefore essential.
