Hi Gareth,

From the forum - click the Ski Europe tab above, then select a country from the Skiing Destinations (left-side menu). Each country page has a tab for WebCams.

Once in a "country webcam" tab you can switch countries with the left-side menu (e.g. if viewing the Andorran ski webcams, then clicking Austria... you get the idea).

Here are short-cuts to ski resort webcams for the big four :- Austria, France, Italy and Switzerland.

The country pages feature webcams for the most popular ski resorts - and there are links to the webcams for the other ski resorts lower down.

I'll add some short-cuts to the site drop-down menu shortly, and to the country-specific forums.

Quite a few of them appear to be covered in snow this morning! Nice. 8)

Enjoy the views!

Dave - aka Mr. Admin;

It was with interest I followed the directions you gave Gareth to locate ski related web cams. This path took me to check out the Canadian sites listed - of course.

The list includes a ski center called Ben Eoin which the map locates in Cape Breton, Nova Scotia. (Right where I understand it to be - but I've never been there.) Also listed is Wentworth which the map shows as near Montreal, Quebec. This may be so but there is a SkiWentworth in Nova Scotia too. This is its site with loads of info: http://www.skiwentworth.ca/ It is a family friendly hill with a 815 ft. vertical elevation and 20 trails.

The Nova Scotia hill at which I ski most often is Ski Martock and this link will get you there: http://www.martock.com/index.php Martock's elevation is 6oo ft but is only about 45 minutes from the most polulated area of the province whereas Wentworth is about 90 minutes. The Nova Scotia season typically runs from mid or late December until late March.

I offer these comments as the page you have on which you have listed "Wentworth" asks anyone who has skied there to tell you a bit about the place. Wentwoorth has some really nice runs as does Martock. Wentworth is steeper but Martock is closer to home. The times I have skied at Wentworth have been really worth the drive and conditions have been good. Skiing at Martock is the Saturday morning standard practice for the winter months - nothing (except the weather or a death in the family) gets in the way of a Saturday ski "trip" to Martock. Some really nice night skiing is available at Martock as well.

I hope this may be of value.
