February March April travel Europe for skiing and sightseeing

Jump to last reply

Hi, We are trying to put together a trip for 2015 that has a few opportunities for skiing but also for sightseeing. We are planning 10 weeks in total and looking at overland train travel through Europe. At the moment we have:
Fly into Istanbul - see Istanbul
overnight train to Plovdiv; bus to Bansko (few days skiing here).
Sofia, Veliko Tarnovo and onto Romania to see Brasov, Sibiu, Sighsoura and then overnight train to Budapest.
Train to Vienna (maybe Salzburg or Hallstat) and then skiing in Obigurgl in Austria.
Train to Murren for skiing.
Train/Bus to Andorra for skiing and then onto Madrid and Andulucia (Seville, Cordoba, Granada) for Easter.
Overnight train Madrid to Lisbon - see Portugal (Sintra, Lisbon, Evora, Porto).
Possibilities are then fly to ireland or Greece (to catch some warmer weather) as it would be mid April.
We would like to maybe do Poland or Lviv but are concerned about weather this time of the year and also feel we need to skip through places like Budapest and Vienna due to poor weather. Also the summer towns in Bulgaria or Romania would not be good to visit.
The question is how do we put together a winter itinerary where we only want occasional skiing but still want to visit highlights for sightseeing. Is there better places to visit to achieve this? any help appreciated.
