We haven't been to any of these destinations. Thanks for the tips. When we find ourselves in Europe we will check one of them out. We are always looking for new and exciting places to strap on the old snowboard!

My kids are addicted to snowboarding and whizz down the slopes leaving me far behind - they only bother me for some cash for a very expensive crepe or hot chocolate. I enjoy family friendly ski-resorts that also have a bit of charm and authenticity.
