Where to ski and snowboard in October

Where to ski in October
No-one would blame you for being keen to kit the European slopes as soon as you can this season. While most of us will look towards November and December before booking a few days or a week away, there are some opportunities for early season skiing and snowboarding adventures. Skiing – which is usually cheaper at this time of year - takes place on glaciers.
