With a European winter now in full swing, the newspapers are full of European alpine ideas. Firstly, we have the New York Times with an article on night skiing in St Moritz – if you can afford to stay there, that is. Fortunately, it’s not the only resort they list.
Still on Switzerland, the Independent goes ballooning in ChÃ¢teau d’Oex, but at â‚¬227 for an hour’s flight, it makes the aforementioned accomodation in St Moritz look like a night in a run-down motel.
The Independent also has a look at skiing in some of the lesser known areas of Austria’s Tyrol region; and while you’re there, why not have a weekend in Innsbruck?
