THE ULTIMATE SKI ROAD TRIP

The final day of the Utah leg of PlanetSKI’s 4-week trip in the USA & Canada brings a bit of a disaster. In fact a total and utter cockup. So, what is the best way to react? UPDATED

FAST TRAIN TO WINTER PARK

Downtown Denver to the ski slopes in little more than 90 minutes. The Winter Park Express is back and suddenly it’s a whole lot easier to go skiing in Colorado. PlanetSKI steps on board.

The Road to Red Mountain

James Cove swings into Red Mountain in an RV. It’s a resort he’s wanted to ski for many years, but will it live up to expectations?

SUNSHINE SPARKLES

PlanetSKI has been in the Canadian resort of Sunshine Village for a few days. It is one of our favourite resorts in Canada. Why?

SKIING IN SPAIN – DAY TWO

PlanetSKI has been making some turns in Spain. The Pyrenees? No, Sierra Nevada in southern Spain. And there is far more to it than just the skiing. Our blog continues…

WAKE UP IN THE UK & BE SKIING BY LUNCH

Is it possible to take an early flight and be on the slopes before lunch? Yes, even better if it is a resort you have dreamt of skiing for years.

Norway in pictures

At this time of year there is not much daylight in the ski resorts of Norway. There are long daybreaks and sunsets that make some great photo opportunities.

Skiing in Norway

Sometimes it is judgement, often it is luck and occasionally a combination of the two. This week PlanetSKI has been in Norway, the location of some of the best current snow in Europe.

Hiking the Hahnenkamm

It is the most famous downhill ski race of them all. The Streif course is now a summer attraction too. PlanetSKI pulls on its hiking boots rather than ski boots.

On the road again

The PlanetSKI Norwegian road trip continues as our content editor and his son arrive in Hafjell, near Lillehammer. So, what is it that makes Norway special?

Norway used to be popular with the British but recently numbers have dwindled. That may be about to change – next winter Crystal is offering holidays again.

Skiing in Norway – Part Four

Norway used to be popular with the British but recently numbers have dwindled. That may be about to change – next winter Crystal is offering holidays again. PlanetSKI is in Norway and we have a series of special reports. Here we try our hand at husky sledging and have a ski area all to ourselves. Literally.

A jewel of skiing

A new linked ski area has been created in the Austrian Tirol as Alpbach links up with the resorts in the Wildschonau. It has taken 11 years of heated debate as change happens rather slowly in this part of Austria. PlanetSKI reports from the Ski Juwel.

Hiking high in the Alps

PlanetSKI reporter, Christian Ferree, is the Swiss Alps hiking near the longest glacier in Europe. He is blogging for us as he travels; Day Two Reideralp-Bettmeralp-Eggishorn-Jungfraurochst.

Skiing in California

Our content editor travelled to California with some reluctance. It hadn’t snowed for weeks and it was having the worst winter in years. He is not entirely a fan of skiing in North America either. He returns itching to get back. So what happened?

It is difficult not to be smug

Our content editor is in Lake Tahoe in California. Up until last weekend it was having one of the worst winters on record. Then it started snowing and it hasn’t stopped. Check out his latest blog.

California Dreaming

Our content editor has just arrived on the west coast of the USA to visit Northstar, Heavenly and Kirkwood. He’s been dreaming of the trip, while the resorts have been dreaming of snow. It has been a poor winter so far on the west coast.

Skiing in Japan

A PlanetSKI reporter, Rob Rees, is in the land of the rising sun…and this season the land of the falling snow. Meters and metres of it. Check out our report and pictures from Japan.
