Can you suggest of anywhere in alp’s with good snow at Christmas??

Clare,

As I'm sure you were aware the snow this season was exceptional in the alps, it's obviously impossible to forecast what the snow will be like this year.

However there are a few 'snow-sure' resorts that, due to their height are pretty certain to have snow. I think if you are looking for somewhere 'traditional' at Christmas then Austria is probabily your best bet.

I'll refer you to the following link - http://www.ifyouski.com/resorts/attr...butes=SnowSure
Which has a list of heigh resorts that are likely to be snow sure, it also provides indepth information about each of the resorts.

Hope that helps,
Michael

Hmmm.....
Well I think generally anywhere in New England in the US. Also in Austria, there is a city called Innsbrook. There are good moutains there. One mountain is an Olympic mountain. It is a great place to ski. Hope this helps!

:cool:

Maybe a good choice for you would be an accommodation in Alpe d'Huez. Because of very high altitude (1860m), snow is almost guaranteed.
