We have all tried it. The never-ending discussion in the ski lift about where the longest ski run (slopes) exists? And how is “the longest run” measured?
Now Ski-resort-stats.com publishes the final top 10 list of the longest ski runs in Europe, and a final explanation of how they are measured.

All skiers and snowboaders know that one of the best things in the world is a good long ski run. Building up speed without worrying, and just cruising without thinking about which lift you should take next.  But where in Europe is the longest ski run?

What are the world’s longest ski runs? Is it measured by the length in kilometer /mile, or by vertical drop? Is off-piste included? And is okay that you have to catch a lift to join the last bit of the run?
If not Ski-resort-stats.com can answer this, who can? So let’s make it clear once and for all:

1. It is measured in length.
2. Off-piste is not included. 
3. You must be able to drive from top to bottom without taking a any kind of lifts.

We have made officiel top 10 list of the the longest ski runs at the european ski resorts.
