The backbone of our map consists of contour lines at intervals of 250 meters. Thus, the map looks plastic and nicely illustrates the topography of the Alps. In addition to the borders of the eight Alpine countries and their regions, the map displays the most important roads and rivers, as well as cities and mountains as reference points.
The map displays all ski resorts in the Alps with a combined slope length of at least five kilometers.
The graphical boundaries of the ski resorts are limited by the outer ski lifts or slopes.
We define a ski resort as all connected slopes and lifts that can be reached on skis. If, for example, a bus is necessary to get to another lift, we count two resorts. This results in a few deviations from public counting methods, as in the case of Portes du Soleil. When different ski areas are linked to a defined region, e.g. the Zugspitz Arena, we note this in brackets behind the areas' names.
36 of the Alps' most spectacular mountains, which we also offer as poster prints are illustrated on the map:
Our goal is to combine a harmonious design with relevant information.
For this we are allowed to use the data from skiresort.info, the largest database for ski resorts in the world. Classified by the level of difficulty we list blue, red, and black slope kilometers, and the maximum and minimum height for each ski resort.
All data has been checked and updated in October 2017.
Infographics summarize the data about the ski resorts and the Alpine countries.
The share of the total Alpine area, and the distribution of ski resorts and slope kilometers among the seven Alpine countries*.
*Since Monaco is part of the Alpine region but has no ski resorts the country is not included into the statistics.
Number of ski resorts, divided by slope length.
Slope kilometers, divided by difficulty, in seven Alpine countries.
