Snow, mountains, skiing: Aug20-Sep10

Jump to last reply

Hello, I am acting as tour-guide from Aug20 to Sep10 for my elderly parents (for whom snow-capped mountains are an exotic dream that they would like to see). I will start from Germany (Berlin, Frankfurt, Bavaria) and end up in Italy (Rome, Venice, Milan, Florence, Pisa, Palermo etc) and in between, would like to spend two or three days somewhere where

a) there is snow, skiing and "mountainous sights"
b) can be reached by public transport (train or buses)
c) is reasonably robust to weather so that the probability of the whole visit being spent indoors is small
d) there is no climbing or hiking involved: both my parents are non-skiing "heart patients" who would just like to see the slopes
e) is not too expensive, given that we are not even trying to actually ski, and it is the "visuals" that matter more.

I would greatly appreciate any advice or tips you can give me. As you might have guessed, I know very little about this myself...

Thanks !!

Suresh
