Type 'European Ski Destination' into Google and you'll see countries like France, Switzerland, Italy and Austria top the list, whilst any articles promoting Germany are no where to be found. However, despite its relatively underrated reputation amongst the world's ski enthusiasts, Germany's breathtaking Bavarian Alps are without a doubt, one of the world's premier winter sports destinations. And here's why...
Tradition. Snow covered 'gingerbread' style houses and chalets replace high rise developments in Bavaria; each with its own distinct charm reminiscent of Bavaria's unique character and traditions. Feel part of the family as you are welcomed by a friendly local, then sit by with a steaming glass of mulled wine and marvel in the awe-inspiring panoramic views, visible from the gemütlich (cosy) alpine-style hotels.
No Queues. Queuing for hours on end is commonplace in some of Europe's most renowned skiing destinations, often overshadowing the experience altogether. Not in Germany. Here, there are virtually no queues, meaning you can enjoy the adrenaline rush that this thrilling winter sport brings without having to wait around .... not yet, anyway.
Value for Money. A day ski pass in Germany is less than half the price of the more popular skiing destinations. For just 33 Euros, skiing is no longer a 'sport for the rich', with families now able to enjoy a European winter holiday with total peace of mind. Accommodation is astonishingly cheap too, with some great offers to be found.
Karma Bavaria is offering free ski passes for bookings from the 15th of November until the 28th of February 2017. Just use the promo code: SKIPASS when you book.
