Lech, Austria

Lech, Austria, mountains, skiing

Lech is an intermediate skiers paradise with snow sure descents found in swathes, both above the forest or diving right through it.  Although red runs slightly dominate the Lech-Zürs ski area, there’s also a huge number of incredible blues to get stuck into. The pistes are open, wide, cruisy and ideal for working on your parallel turns.

Val d’Isere, France

The Espace Killy favours the bold intermediate with the line between blues and reds often a rather blurry one. With that said, they are some of the best blue and red pistes in the Alps with Glaciers and Genepi Blue being two of the best blue runs, and Merles and OK Orange as two stand out red pistes.

Perched on the side of Santons piste, Chalet La Tene is a magnificent option for intermediate skiers to ski-in ski-out in sumptuous luxury. Complete with a large outdoor hot tub and spectacular views, this chalet is a really special prospect.
