Should your withdrawal symptoms from all things Lakes & Mountains become too much whilst back in Blighty, here are a few umbrella websites where you can reminisce to your heart’s content:

http://www.feratel.com/en/webcam-wetter.html  Feratel offer the largest array of Austrian resort webcams under ‘one roof’. Here you can seek out your favourites by selecting from the nine Austrian provinces; with an obvious bias towards the Tirol, there is everywhere from Achensee to Zell im Zillertal with all points alphabetically in between. Feratel also showcase resorts in Switzerland, Germany, Liectenstein and Andorra amongst many others, but sadly don’t carry any real-time Slovenian panoramas.

http://www.panoramablick.com/  Similar to Feratel, Panorama Blick showcase cameras from many countries, some not with Alpine landscapes. It does though carry all the main European snow-capped countries with again the sad exception of Slovenia. It again includes resorts from all the Austrian regions, with particular personal favourites being the multiple Innsbruck and Oetztal cameras, along with pleasing aspects of the Arlberg and Ziller valley.

http://www.panomax.at/ Panomax, in more ways than one offers something different. Firstly the Norwegian and Finnish cameras are welcome alternatives but predominantly their peculiarity over the others is that it gives ‘almost live’ 360 degree views of the resorts represented, which can then be controlled from your own laptop to rotate the view. I am particular partial of the cameras showing Seefeld, Schafberg(above Lake Wolfgang) and Schwarze Schneidbahn, one of the self-styled “Big 3” above Soelden. The choice of vista is not as vast as the two aforementioned sites but their unique take on a resort-cam – which is surely the future – is preferable to the at times lower definition pictures offered elsewhere. Bravo.

http://www.skylinewebcams.com/en/webcam/slovenija.html  Finally, cameras that broadcast some of what Slovenia has to offer. Skyline also include Hungary, Romania and Croatia in their programme; whilst admittedly not wall-to-wall views for the Alpine purist, the Slovenian element of their website displays a diverse choice of mountain, city and coastal impressions, including Maribor, Piran, Predjama, Kranjska Gora, Bovec(Kanin) and Vogel(Bohinj). I particularly enjoy the time-lapse element, enabling viewers to compare the comings and goings, weather and traffic as the day(and night) goes by.

So, something for everybody. Happy viewing.
