Slope off to Italy

By Robin Neillands, January 30, 1998

As a glance along any travel agent’s shelves will quickly confirm, the skiing world is expanding.

The shelves groan under the weight of brochures featuring resorts from Canada to Scandinavia, taking in, en route, Bulgaria, Chile and even New Zealand.

As for the number of resorts available, Crystal Holidays, which claims to offer the widest choice, has no fewer than 111, in 11 countries. Among the locations on offer this season are Alaska and Quebec.
