Come the spring sunshine you can combine your skiing with some wildlife watching: the Alps are home to two national parks and countless nature reserves. You can easily spot marmots and the deer-like chamois, and sometimes even golden eagles and bearded vultures. You’d be very lucky to see a wolf or a lynx but they are nevertheless there in small numbers.
