New Year in Aspen, Colorado

Since I started skiing ten years ago my experience has been limited to the ski resorts of the European Alps. I’ve come to expect long lines, surly staff and crowded runs. On my recent trip to Aspen, Colorado, though, I was amazed at the lack of all three of these annoyances.

A couple of friends and I visited the first weekend of January, surely one of the busiest times of the year, and we were blown away by how deserted the mountains were in comparison to Europe. We never had to queue for the lift and, what’s more, we didn’t have to constantly dodge around slower skiers or scoot out of the way of those going faster than us. Perhaps Americans who are used to empty slopes wouldn’t notice this, but for those accustomed to European slopes it was unbelievable.

When we arrived we were tempted to head straight for Aspen Mountain as we’d heard it was the best for intermediate/advanced runs, but only two of the four of us were confident to tackle a black run. Instead we went out to Snowmass, the largest of the four skiing areas around Aspen.

I’m glad we did. Snowmass offered everything for every skill level. Me and my buddy, both pretty experienced and confident on the slopes, headed out to the mogul runs while the other two, both on their second skiing trips, stuck to the family friendly gentle slopes where they could work on their skills. By the end of the week they were both joining us out on the more challenging runs – they’re not perfect, but at least they weren’t tumbling over every ten feet.

Here’s a top tip: the Two Creeks Mexican Cafe at Snowmass has the best Mexican food I’ve found anywhere in the lower 48. You can’t beat fajitas at the top of a mountain!

Revisiting Chamonix-Mont-Blanc, France

The last time I visited Chamonix-Mont-Blanc, France it was for an ill-fated attempt at the Traverse, a tricky approach up Mont Blanc. The trip went so badly that I lost interest in France for years, and it was only when my wife insisted we return for the ski season that I relented (I have absolutely no power in this relationship).

Well, I’m glad we went. Where the last trip was nothing but effort and privation this one was pure luxury from start to finish. We spent five days in the Hotel Morgane, just a few steps from the Aiguille du Midi cable car, and spent much of the week relaxing in the heated swimming pool and dining like royalty around Chamonix. It made a nice change from the boiled noodles I ate every day during my attempt to scale the mountain back in the 90s.

On those days when we could tear ourselves away from the comforts of the town we boarded the cable car to take us 12,605 feet up the mountain to find some of the best runs we’ve ever visited. The mountain had something for everyone. My wife, a much more compentent skier than me, headed out to the challenging black runs and moguls, while I pottered around the bunny slopes to regain my confidence (it’s been a few years since I’ve been out on the snow).

By the end of the week I was out on the challenging runs with the wife having the time of my life, but by far the biggest attraction for me was the town of Chamonix-Mont-Blanc itself. The cafes and restaurants are fantastic, and despite the fun I had on the slopes I couldn’t wait to get down at the end of each day for a great meal, a quick dip in the pool and a couple of apres ski drinks.

We got back from Chamonix just three weeks ago, and we’re already planning to return for a week of hiking in the summer. This is just the best place in Europe.

Chic, Stylish Cortina, Italy

I’ll begin this review by saying that if you can drive to Cortina, Italy you should absolutely do so. Each year for the last four I’ve made the drive down from Innsbruck (where I have family) to Venice, and the pass through the Dolomites may very well be the best drive in Europe. If you can’t drive there, hire a car for a day. It’s more than worth it.

This time, though, I wasn’t passing through on the road but heading to one of the world’s oldest ski resorts in Cortina d’Ampezzo. The seventh Winter Olmpics were held there in 1956, and even today Cortina is the only resort in Italy to boast its own bobsled track and ski jump.

My wife and I were there just for the skiing. The mountains around Cortina are pretty cliffy and craggy, and the runs tend to be best for advanced skiers (I’m not quite there yet, but I’m always up for a challenge).

The skiing was, as expected, challenging and fantastic, but the real attraction of Cortina is its unmatched apres ski options. In the evenings we dined at Tivoli, a restaurant awarded a Michelin star. We drank in a piano bar on the grounds of the Miramonti Majestic, and shopped in the tiny, chic boutiques in the town.

Cortina was nothing like what we expected. After years of skiing in the US we were accustomed to basic pizza joints and run down bars at the end of the day. What we found in Cortina was pure luxury. By the end of the week we wouldn’t have cared if the mountains vanished – as long as the shops, bars, cafes and restaurants of the town remained we’d be happy.

If you’re thinking of visiting Cortina, here’s a tip: the perfect way to enter the town is by classic Ferrari. Hey, I didn’t say the tip would be cheap.

A Trek to Mont Tremblant, Quebec

There’s nothing quite like being the first group to hit the slopes in the morning, and on our recent trip to Mont Tremblant, Quebec my wife and I broke the habit of a lifetime to rise each morning at 7AM to board the 7:45 gondala up the mountain.

I’ve been skiing now for five years, and I can honestly say that I’ve never had more fun out on the snow that I did when we were the first out on the black diamond Geant run from the summit of Mont Tremblant all the way back down, where the run rejoins Duncan Bas and returns to the base of the mountain. If you’ve never tried it, this run should be on your bucket list. When the snow is freshly groomed there’s just no better place in the world to be standing on a couple of skis.

At the end of the day there’s nowhere better to down a beer within 100 miles than the Microbrasserie La Diable in Vieux Tremblant. It was a little too tempting to stay through to the 2AM closing time enjoying their fantastic home brewed pale ale, but if you can resist the temptation to go a little crazy it’s a great place for an apres ski drink.

What we really loved about Mont Tremblant, though, was how empty it was. Even in the height of the winter season the slopes felt much, much quieter than the runs of Aspen, our usual winter ski destination. Perhaps it’s the fact that Tremblant is a little out of the way, but we felt as if we had the mountain to ourselves most days.

We returned home to Maine around a week ago, and we’ve already booked flights for a return visit in the summer. Everyone we met told us that the hikes up the mountain when the snow is gone offer the best views in North America. I can’t wait to see!

A Decade in Stowe, Vermont

I’ve been heading out to Stowe, Vermont for about a decade now, and each year I think to myself ‘this year I’ll get bored of it and find somewhere new to ski’. Well, after one more winter season it still hasn’t happened, and I’m still just as much in love with Stowe as I was when I first visited.

So what is it that I love so much? Well, for starters you just can’t beat that mountain. I’ve been skiing around the world for about 10 years now, and there’s nowhere else I’ve ever been that offers such a perfect range of slopes for beginners, intermediates and experts. I learned to ski on this mountain, and each year I’ve returned I’ve been able to tackle ever more challenging slopes. Stowe always has something new to teach me, and each year I discover a new reason to love it.

What’s more, once you’re off the mountain after a long day there’s no better place to kick back and relax than Stowe. It’s a tiny little town, but there’s a range of great restaurants you’d expect to find in a town ten times the size. I always look forward to heading down from the mountain for a few apres ski drinks and a huge steak the size of my head (hey, I earned it!).

By the way, if you make it to Stowe you really should check out the dog sledding. You’ll find the tours setting off from the base of the resort, and I just can’t get enough of it. It’s a little on the pricy side, maybe, but it’s worth every penny.

So, it seems I’ll be heading back next winter for my eleventh year on the mountain. Maybe one of these days I’ll tire of the town and head off to find somewhere new, but for now I’m happy that I still get excited about Stowe. Long may it continue.

First Time in Zermatt, Switzerland

My wife and I are both avid, diehard skiing enthusiasts, but we so rarely get the chance to travel beyond the low, shallow slopes of Scotland. When we got the chance this past new year to head out to Zermatt, Switzerland we jumped at the chance.

A holiday in Zermatt has always been a dream of ours. Our neighbours visit every year, and each time they come back with fantastic tales of this small village, so dedicated to the mountains that its only inhabitants are there for the skiing (more or less – I’m sure some people are there to clean up the place and work in the bars and restaurants).

We heard that Zermatt is isolated from the rest of the country, away from any major routes and accessible only by train. The town is served by horse drawn carriages, and the cobbled streets are silent but for the tourists.

Well, it’s all true. There were slightly more electric vehicles and slightly fewer horses than we expected, but apart from that the description we were given was perfectly accurate. During our week on the mountain we didn’t hear a single combustion engine – coming from the centre of Edunburgh this is pure bliss.

Zermatt itself, while beautiful, isn’t the main attraction. Every day we took the gondola from the Sunnegga Paradise resort up to the Rothorn, and that’s where the fun really began. After a couple of runs on the Kumme bunny slopes to stretch our legs we headed back up to the black run at Obere National, a fast paced straight run down the mountain. After a couple of years with nothing but Scottish slopes it was unbelievably exhilarating. I couldn’t recommend it more highly.

The Rothorn is just one of the skiing areas accessible from Zermatt, but in my opinion it’s by far the best. It gets a lot more sunshine than the other areas around the resort so it can be a little less predictable, but when there’s good snowfall it simply can’t be beat.

Beautiful, friendly, fun and exciting. Those are the words I’d use to describe Zermatt. We’ll be back next year.
