Travel & Holiday

PLANETSKI VISITS WINTER PARK, COLORADO

It’s the 4th biggest ski area in the state, the nearest to Denver & has an army of fans. We visit for the first time with our eyes wide-open.

THAT’S ALL FOLKS…

The PlanetSKI Idaho road trip comes to an end. What a week of adventures on the road & in the mountains… next stop Colorado. NEW

THE JOURNEY TO WINTER PARK

If there is a better way to arrive in a ski resort then we can’t think of one. By train from Denver to the Colorado ski resort of Winter Park. NEW

ON THE ROAD AGAIN

PlanetSKI is on a US ski road trip around Idaho. Adventures await, but it helps to have some skis. And now we have a knowledge of potatos. UPDATED

PLANETSKI IS BACK IN ANDORRA

PlanetSKI’s Katie Bamber has just returned from the slopes of the Pyrenees. She blogged live and here is her piece in chronological order. NEW

SNOW TRAIN TO THE ALPS

We’re off to La Plagne on the snow train from London – see how the journey went.

Club Med Life…

A very different ski trip to the traditional chalet break but fun, easy and a kid’s dream holiday it is for sure.

Club Med Claims Success

The French company reports winter sales up more than 30% as interest grows in all-inclusive ski holidays.

THE ULTIMATE CITY & SKI BREAK

The capitol of the Tirol, Innsbruck, may not be the most obvious place for a ski holiday. Wrong. City + Ski = Perfection.

PETITION FOR SUNDAY SKI TRAIN

Eurostar is being urged to introduce a new direct service to cater for the increasing numbers of skiers travelling to the French Alps on a Sunday.

A JACKSON HOLE VIRGIN

The PlanetSKI 4-week road trip swings into the resort we’ve most been looking forward to ski – Jackson Hole. Our editor has never skied it before but heard so much about it.

As you may have noticed on PlanetSKI our editor, James Cove, has been doing a 4-week road trip (with some occasional help from planes) in North America.

ULTIMATE SKI ROAD TRIP: UTAH, PART ONE

PlanetSKI is on a 4-week road trip round 20 or so ski resorts in the USA and Canada. We have been blogging each day and here we re-produce the first week in full and in chronological order.

The Road to Revelstoke

The PlanetSKI Canadian ski road trip in British Columbia heads to Revelstoke. We sunk deep into the best powder snow so far.

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?

PYRENEES SKI ROAD TRIP

We are back on the road visiting 3 resorts in 3 days in the French Pyrenees; Font Romeu, Les Angles and Ax3Domaines. We saved the best till last. UPDATE

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.

Innsbruck airport hit by bad weather

Flights were delayed as poor visibility and strong winds forced places to divert on Saturday. The airport serves many of the Austrian ski areas though is prone to closure.

Go East for a bargain

That’s the message of a recent survey to find the best low cost skiing in these times of economic hardship.
