You know, I should mention that in Los Angeles each year (in late December) where they have a contest that involves snow skiing in the morning at Lake Arrowhead, then driving the 90 miles to the beach and surfing in the afternoon. The winner is the person that scores the best in the two contests combined. Don't know if there's any other place in the world where the weather would allow you to do this?

Enjoy

San Leonardo in Passiria in Northern Italy(also called south Tyrol). Beautiful little village at the end of two Alp passes.We went there for our holidays 10 consecutive years.Paul

Have you ever thought of Barcelona, Spain? It is about an hour and a bit south from the Pyrenees, and the city is nestled between Montserat (mountain) and other ranges, as well as the wonderful Mediteranean Sea. Can´t get any better than that!! Good luck!!

Definitely Boulder, Colorado. Very clean, liberal, in the heart of the Rockies, and a haven for outdoor activities. I am from Minnesota so any evelation of land is a sight for me, but this town takes the cake for me!

I heard moose land in Canada (apologise if I don't really know where that is) is quite nice.

Sorry, i misread Chimomu's original request. I thought he was specifically looking for somewhere Alpine or Pyrenees, so i ignored all other mountain ranges in Europe and elsewhere.

So did I! I was also wondering why nobody had mentioned Sweden!

So these are my recommendations in Sweden:

Riksgränsen - haven't been there but It's supposed to be absolutely awesome!!! Really good off-pist, and summer skiing with 24 hours of daylight...

Åre (and this is how the ring above the A looks like!) - not mainly because of the slopes (they are sometimes a bit icy) but because it's a good ski resort when it comes to beer, parties and such.

Trysil - that's in Norway, I know... but it's pretty close to the Swedish border and the slopes are super.

I miss having a Swedish keyboard On the damned cyrillic ones, even the ALT key variants don't work. Bah!

And agree that Trysil is a decent place as well, as are another couple of Norwegian ones.

Um, if you have Microsoft Word around, you can use the "Insert Symbol" function, maybe?
