Ski and snowboard enthusiasts from around the world:

We have been proud to provide you with free access to snow reports, resort guides and more, and we are beyond grateful for your readership and contributions to our community over the years.

Unfortunately given the changing media landscape, Mountain News Corporation has experienced financial declines in recent years. With additional economic challenges from the COVID-19 pandemic now facing our business, it is not financially viable to continue operating.

Mountain News Corporation and our OnTheSnow and Skiinfo websites will be shutting down. We will explore the possibility of selling, partnering, or contributing assets to another media outlet if there is an opportunity to allow for a consistent or enhanced online experience. For inquiries about Mountain News Corporation, please email Feedback_OTS@mountainnews.com.

We want to thank our loyal employees for their tireless work over the years to bring great information to all of you. We take comfort knowing that our collective passion for the sport of skiing and snowboarding will certainly live on.

We’ll see you on the mountain.

Limburg Ski Resorts

Limburg has its sights set across the border. Everyday life here has always involved contact with areas that are today located outside our national borders. It is not wonder that Limburg is a European region in heart and soul. The historic city of Maastrict where Mrs Thatcher joyfully signed the treaty of Europe is also nearby.

So where is the hill high enough to create a 100m vertical in one of the world’s flattest countries? The answer is that this is a regenerated former slag heap from the local coal industry. SnowWorld is one of multiple modern and historic attractions in the area. SnowWorld can accommodate up to 1,500 people on its slopes at any one time. It is particularly surreal to wander in to the complex to find it heaving with skiers on the slopes and the après ski bars around the base of the slope full of lively après-skiers.

From the top of the hill (and through a window at the top of the lift inside SnowWorld) there are great views out across neighbouring Belgium and Germany as well as across Holland, where, it’s a relief to see one traditional stereotype remains unscathed – windmills. There are hundreds of them, albeit the modern variety generating green energy rather than grinding flour.
