In 85 countries worldwide outdoor skiing on snow is possible.* At least theoretically.

In 2016, 66 countries of the world had at least one ski resort, that's nearly a third of all countries worldwide. Nearly 40 percent of all lifts and 35 percent of the ski resorts are situated in the Alps countries, France, Italy, Austria, Switzerland and Germany. Remarkable is, that 85% out of the 44 major ski resorts worldwide, means those with more than 1 million visitors per winter season, are loacted in the Alps and a quarter of them actually within one single province, the ski touring paradise Tyrol.*

Nonetheless, because or by different reasons, other places, new discoveries, adventures and impressions are calling.
