A new study of a consulting agency revealed that the Styrian town of Schladming is the most popular ski region of the Alps. 18.000 holidaymakers in 40 different ski regions were questioned.
The survey included the range of ski slopes, snow guarantee, hotels, fun, apres ski and kindness. Schladming was the winner of the survey and received an average mark of 8,03. The second rank went to Lech-Zürs with 7,96. Third Altesch-Arena in Switzerland with 7,87. Rank four and five went to Zermatt (Switzerland) with 7,86 and Serfauf-Fiss-Ladis with 7,83.
Another interesting facts of the study: good skiers are more loyal to their holiday destination. The better, the more loyal. The most loyal guests have Lech-Zürs, Lenzerheide und Arosa. The most intensive used ski slopes are located in Obertauern and St. Anton. Every second skier goes skiing more than 10 days in one season.
The tourism boss of Schladming is very proud about this result. Especially the good performance in “kindness” makes him very happy. Just several days ago the Schladming ski slope called “Planai” was labeled as “very good” during a ski slope test of the German car club “ADAC”. Schladming seems to be a very good place for a winter holiday.
