Log in to snowHeads to make it MUCH better! Registration's totally free, of course, and makes snowHeads easier to use and to understand, gives better searching, filtering etc. as well as access to 'members only' forums, discounts and deals that U don't even know exist as a 'guest' user. (btw. 50,000+ snowHeads already know all this, making snowHeads the biggest, most active community of snow-heads in the UK, so you'll be in good company)..... When you register, you get our free weekly(-ish) snow report by email. It's rather good and not made up by tourist offices (or people that love the tourist office and want to marry it either)... We don't share your email address with anyone and we never send out any of those cheesy 'message from our partners' emails either. Anyway, snowHeads really is MUCH better when you're logged in - not least because you get to post your own messages complaining about things that annoy you like perhaps this banner which, incidentally, disappears when you log in :-)

Shout out to Kronplatz, summer and winter

Yet another fantastic ski area unknown in North America, Kronplatz deserves wider recognition. I've spent a couple days there over the last two years, and for a piste skier it has all the goods: over 1,300 m vertical, excellent snowmaking coverage, modern lift system (a bit overly reliant on gondolas, a minor sin if at all), wide blues and reds with some killer blacks, good enough for a WC GS last season. I've used it on my getaway days leaving San Cassiano heading for MUC, but next year I'll spend more time there. Meanwhile, while spending three weeks sweltering in France and Northern Italy recently, we took a day trip from Avelengo to Kronplatz to beat the heat and visit the two impressive museums on top. The Messner Mtn Museum (one of its six locations) was designed by Zaha Hadid and it is spectacular inside and out. Lumen is nothing special architecturally but very fun and clever on the inside. This turned out to be a highlight of our trip, and if it sounds interesting to you, go.

Went there for the first time this year and loved it.

On my only visit skiing the top half was superb but it is quite low at the bottom and pistes were claggy porridge. In good conditions it must be superb. The easy and long blues must make it a beginners paradise.

Its been under the radar here for a long time but is now attracting attention in the UK. Every year it is one of the first ski resorts in the alps to open and has amongst the most runs and lifts open before New Year, thanks to its suitability for snow making.

Most of the runs are unusually wide. The run down to Piculin is also the steepest in Italy. The black runs to the north are some of the longest in the Dolomites Cool

Just the top bit; the rest is normal red.

Lovely place with some nice rifugios.
