Ski Europe takes skiers step by step through planning the winter vacation of their dreams in the Alps in Austria, Italy, Switzerland or France as well as major resorts in Spain and Andorra.Just like here in the United States or Canada, every European resort has its quirks and specialties, notes Leocha. Seasoned skiers know that some resorts are better for singles, others better for families. Some offer cozy chalets, others feature modern hotels right on the slopes. And while one resort may be heaven for beginning skiers it may be boring for the expert.Ski Europe organizes all the necessary information to make intelligent choices and provides the phone numbers to make reservations and plans. Over more than a decade Ski Europe has become known for its no-holds-barred, brutally honest reports on reality at ski resorts. Ski Europe takes no advertising, has no ax to grind, and, like Ski America and Canada, is written by Leocha together with an international team of prize-winning ski and snowboard journalists.
