OUR ROAD TO THE ALPS.
This website was created in 2009 as online version of the book about skiing tourism “Let’s go to the Alps!” (Moscow, 2009). However, with time it evolved into something different. After all, the Alps offer much more than just great European ski resorts and skiing tourism.
For visitors from all over the world, the Alps mean fresh mountain air, sweet with the aroma of fir trees, frost and wood stove smoke; cautious deer and busy marmots; the lakes calmly reflecting the eternal snow on the glaciers; waterfalls, canyons and caves. The Alps are also its ancient towns and castles, legends, myths and fairy tales, festive and fun celebrations and traditions. All in all, the Alps represent a unique culture of life and hospitality.
We come to the Alps because we love and need the Alpine valleys and meadows, the Alpine chalets and villages, the Alpine cheese and the simple, happy pleasures of life. We rest our soul, admire the beauty around us, eat and drink very well, and then upon our return home, we spread the received bliss and springs of happiness all around us, making life better and purer. Isn’t this the most important of all things?
The world is beautiful, but the Alps are twice as beautiful. And people realised this not so long ago. So, that makes our task even more interesting and exciting. We collect positive and objective information about Alpine ski resorts and other tourist (and non-tourist) destinations, plus reviews and opinions of people from different countries, news, photos and videos. We try to show that the Alps are not only the well-known resorts of Mayrhofen, Solden or Chamonix. We also actively promote summer trips to the area, as we know how great they are.
We are constructing our own Road to the Alps. So, please join in!
With the utmost respect to every real and virtual traveller,
