flowers create a lush green landscape to entice you into the hills, where you’ll
find gushing streams of crystal clear mountain water. The cable cars become full
of walkers heading towards the fresh mountain air and the breathtaking alpine
scenery. The onset of summer brings valley temperatures up to 80 degrees, and

temperatures fall and snow begins to arrive - the perfect recipe for a white
Christmas! The verdant pastures make way for the snow-capped Alps in all their
glory. The ski season starts across the Alps in late November. From the
spectacular jagged peaks of the Voralberg in the west, to the vast Amade ski
area in the east, the standard of the skiing is world renowned.
