I am a student at Leeds Metropolitan University, researching into the popularity of Alpine and Nordic resorts in the Winter. Answering the questions below would greatly assist me in writing my dissertation. Thankyou!
Have you ever visited the any of the following resorts:
Finland: Levi
Rovaniemi
Switzerland: St Moritz
Zermatt
What made you choose this resort?
If you visited only one of these resorts, would you consider a resort in the other listed country?
Please give reasons for your response.

Many thanks!
Kari

If it helps, i've been to all 4 at least twice, and at least once in winter. HOWEVER - in no cases have I actually been because it was a resort or for the sole purpose of a skiing holiday. But If i can still be of help, just let me know

Good luck, Rich

Only been to Rovaniemi, actually in winter as well as in summer. And mainly because of the fact that I like northern Scandinavia in general. Santa claus village is a little bit touristy but still nice.
In general i don't like winter resort areas so much. Going up and down the mountain al day....there must be something better to do.
