Lech (Vorarlberg Austria)
The river through the village as well as the valley has also the same name. The river Lech flows down through Reutte in Triol, Füssen and Augsburg in Germany into the Donau traveling to the Black See. Since Diana, Princess of Wales, visited here for skiing, many skiers form GB are visiting. Because you can ski everywhere except for protected forest, and some ungroomed ski routes are available, it is  quite attractive for off-piste skiers.
Avalanche and other alpine risks have to be taken into account.

Auerspitz (Spitzingsee Germany) Mountain Ski
Auerspitz, the neighborhood of the Rodwand, has a wonderful north east slope for moutain skiing.
It is easy to reach by a comfortable jeep road to the Rodwandhaus, which is just in the next to Auerspitz.
This time I took the route to Soin-Alm and then to Geitau via Klarer-Alm. This route has a steep and narrow hiking route where you had better to put skin on your skis. Or it is better to take a route via Soinsee to Geitau, or to Ursprung valley via Sillberg-Alm.

This is an exeption.
Hakkoda is one of the most popular mountain ski area at the north end of the main island of Japan. Because of its unbelievable amount of snow in winter, the old rest snow is still available even at the middle of May. In such late season, skiing here is more comfortable by the long day time and higher temperature.

Still one large area in Dolomite was open issue; Sella Ronda, a round trip with ski around Sella group, one of the most famous ski area in south Tirol Italy.
