If you're headed to France for a fun-filled getaway in the snow, you probably want to spend most of your time out on the pistes - not stomping around from one place to another in your clunky ski boots. Let's face it, it doesn't matter if you've found ski boot hire with the most comfortable footwear imaginable: ski boots just aren't made for walking around.
The days are getting shorter and the temperature is dropping. Pumpkin spice lattes have made their way to the coffee shops and Christmas sweets are already in the shops. Some people might believe the autumn months are a sign of a gloomy winter ahead. But for those of us who love snow sports, it's time to find the best deals on ski and snowboard rental and book a holiday in the Alps.
In fact, you don't even need to wait until later in the year to book your snowy getaway. By late October, some of the resorts will already be open, with plenty of snow for alpine adrenaline. So what are the best early season options?
Die Temperaturen sind in den letzten Wochen doch merklich gesunken und die Blätter an den Bäumen beginnen sich herbstlich zu verfärben. Der Herbst steht also nicht länger nur vor der Tür, sondern drängt mit voller Kraft in den Alltag der Menschen. Für Manchen beginnt nun eine Zeit des Frierens und der schlechten Laune, denn die Tage sind kurz und kalt. Für alle Wintersportfans aber sind dies final gute Neuigkeiten, denn es heißt, dass die Skisaison nun endlich unmittelbar bevorsteht und die Vorfreude langsam steigt.
For a thriving ski resort such as France's picturesque Val d'Isere, a well-equipped gondola system plays an instrumental role in keeping everything ticking over - which is why the resort is excited to be launching a new and improved chairlift this winter.
The final stages of testing of the revamped gondola have already commenced, with staff having bade a fond farewell to the old Solaise cable car over the summer, when the system was finally dismantled and packed away after running reliably for more than 70 years.
After a busy day in the fresh air, there's nothing like relaxing with an ice cold beer - but before you take your next sip of the amber liquid, why not learn about how it's made? For those visiting Zermatt, this can be easily done with a visit to the Zermatt Brewery.
