We come bearing good news (which I think we all need after the past 18 months, right?). After almost two years of minimal snow sports activity, European ski resorts are poised for a huge season. The glaciers plan to open in October, with the high altitude resorts following in November and everything should be open in time for Christmas. BOOM!
At Willyfinder, we've put together all the information you need about when the European season starts and finishes at all major resorts as we know you’re as excited as we are to get back amongst it.
And remember, no matter where you go, make sure you stand out from the crowd and suit up with your Willyfinder Ski SuitI think we can all agree that this season is not the time to go boring!
