These areas have good facilities for skiing and other mountain winter sports. The page for each area has the contact number for various Tourist bureaux and other related sources of information.
We've been cross-country skiing in the northern Alps, and the "cross-country" included an enormous amount of time slogging upwards and short slides back down again. In the southern Alps and Pre-Alps of the Beyond region, there are many plateaux where you'll get more "cross-country" than climbing. If you prefer the up-and-down method, however, there is plenty of choice in that area as well.
