SnowTrex Awards 2016: excellent winter sports entertainment

12/05/2016 - SnowTrex

Winter sports fans recommend the most popular accommodations and ski areas

There are many quality seals about, but who could decide better on the quality of an accommodation than those who have actually stayed there? Also, who could vote better on the quality of a ski area than those who have spent their holiday there? The answer is actually quite easy: no one! Therefore, the SnowTrex holiday experts have taken their long-term experience and for the upcoming season they have again used their customer feedback to evaluate the best accommodations and ski areas in the European Alpine region and have accredited them with the SnowTrex Awards 2016.

Recommendation directly from the piste: the holiday experience is still freshest a few days after returning from the trip. That is the time when winter sports holiday expert SnowTrex asks its customers to provide feedback on the experience. Local services, meals and facilities of the accommodation are to be evaluated, as well as the quality of the ski area, extra services such as ski and snowboard lessons, and the price-service ratio. The most popular accommodations and destinations are then accredited with the SnowTrex Award. “Of course, we choose our offers carefully, based on our long-term experience in the winter sports sector”, says Marc Behrmann, SnowTrex head of purchasing. “If our holiday participants then tell us that they have had an especially good experience with a hotel in a certain ski destination, we will happily pass this on to our other customers.” This way, other people can best benefit from already made experiences. Marc Behrmann is convinced: “The feedback we receive – be it positive or even criticising – helps us a lot as a tour operator to improve our services and offers.”

The winners: Austria and France at the top

In total, 80 hotels, apartments and pensions, as well as approx. 40 ski areas from the broad SnowTrex portfolio, can look forward to receiving a SnowTrex Award for 2016. During the past season, customers felt especially content with accommodations in the Austrian and French Alps. The most popular destinations include Austrian ski areas such as the Arlberg, the SkiWelt Wilder Kaiser-Brixental and the Zillertal Arena. In France, hotspots such as the Alpe d’Huez Grand Domaine Ski, Les 2 Alpes or the Tignes-Val d’Isère ski area are amongst the favourites.

Excellent winter sports entertainment is also available in Livigno or at the Ski Carousel Alta Badia in Italy, as well as in the ski areas Davos Klosters Mountains or Saas-Fee in Switzerland, but also in the Zugspitz Arena in Germany.

For all these and many further destinations and accommodations, from basic to luxurious, this means: offered and recommended by the holiday experts, tested and recommended by winter sports fans for winter sports fans.

To ensure that this remains no secret, the winners are all listed on and additionally are labelled in resort – not to miss for all those looking for the perfect winter holiday.
