I am new here and would like to begin with a rant, a rant that actually originates from some of my buddies with whom i skied in Austria and Italy in recent weeks.
Well first of all the conditions were not perfect for skiing two weeks ago, the snow in the Otztal valley was fine but not great, same goes for Livigno Italy, but in all we had a fine time.
What bugged some of my Italian buddies was the fact that the ski resorts are crowded and flocked with Polish skiers, it is so crowded that it is reaching a point that if it continues it will be impossible to enjoy a decent ski vacation in Western Europe.
Personally i don't have anything against anyone from Poland but I have to concur that they were at least 50% of all the skiers in the 4 different ski resorts we visited.
There were even entire classes designated to Polish skiers.
My Italian buddies also said that this phenomenon is just increasing year by year and one comes to wonder how so many Polish folks (i mean we saw thousands and thousands of them at each resort) can afford such expensive ski vacations (they usually arrive with the entire family for a week), after all Poland is not known for any special skills or trades, it's not A European economy power plant (far from that).
What made my Italian buddies even more frustrated was the fact many that now days you barely see any Italians at the local ski resorts, well enough rants for the one time.
I just think that beside the skiing/snow/weather conditions, ski resorts should also post how many visitors are expected approx on each given day/week.
