The Longest Ski Slopes in the World
By Diana Ungureanu/ Chisinau / Moldova.ORG/ -- If you have not yet chosen the resort for winter vacation I can suggest you some of the longest ski slopes in Europe, which are the most sought of the all resorts in the world.
The longest slopes in Europe can be found in the Alps. Of the alpine countries, the most representative is France, which can be proud of network of tracks with over 100 km of slope with afferent level differences. A great example is Sarenne, from the resort Alpe d'Huez, which with its 16 km is the longest black slope in the world. The passage starts at 3300 m and slides until Sarenne.
At the base of the impressive Mont Blanc, the resort Chamonix is the French counter-offensive supremacy of Austrian ski stations. With 150 km of ski slopes, of which 42 km for cross-country skiing, the resort offers all the facilities for practicing winter sports: figure and speed skating, hockey, climbing, ski and snowboard schools. Located at an altitude of 1035 m and with opportunities for skiing departing from 3842 m altitude, Chamonix offers slopes for all categories of skiers, from beginners to advanced. The resort disposes of a running track-race both spectacular and dangerous, La Vallee Blanche, long over 20 km, with an altitude level of 2700 m.
If you're looking for long slopes, Zermatt is the right destination. From Klein Matterhorn in the valley there reach two slopes. One on the Swiss side, of 16 km length and the other in Cervinia (Italy), surpassing the Swiss, having a length of 25 km. Currently, this is the longest ski slope in the world. The ski-track also has a level difference of 2300 m, a measure that requires truly respect.
This was the ranking of the longest ski slopes in the world and there is one thing all of these tracks that makes us happy, that these, and also the first 20 ski tracks of the world, are located on the old continent Europe that is not really so far from us.
It remains only not to overlook the ski equipment and start travel in any direction.
