The Tyrolian region of Serfaus-Fiss-Ladis received the “Best Ski Resort 2012″ award this week, following a survey put out by Mountain Management Consulting every two years. The Swiss resorts of Saas Fee and Aletsch-Arena ranked #2 and #3, respectively. The survey involved some 40,000 winter sports enthusiasts during the last winter season. The top ten are:
1. Serfaus-Fiss-Ladis (Austria),
2. Saas Fee (Switzerland),
3. Aletsch-Arena (Switzerland),
4. Zermatt (Switzerland),
5. Schladming (Austria),
6. Lech Zürs (Austria),
7. Kronplatz (Italy),
8. Arosa (Switzerland),
9. Ischgl (Austria),
10. Gröden/Val Gardena (Italy).
The authors had an explanation for the fact that no French resort made it into the top ten: French resorts are mainly visited by Frenchmen who, according to the report, tend to have higher expectations than skiers from other countries.
