About Altitude

The basics

The biggest comedians in the business ship out to Austria for a week of skiing and sketches

The festival

Thought the funniest thing about skiing was the falling over? Well yes, you were right, that's still true. But the second-funniest thing on the slopes is comedy, which Altitude is all about. With past performers including Bill Bailey, Eddie Izzard and Marcus Brigstocke, Altitude promises a starry line-up of snigger-sellers and titter-touters. Ski by day and then fill your apres hours with some of the best comedy in the world. And if that's not exciting enough, the resort also features Austria's steepest piste. Tee hee.

Just try not to laugh too hard when you're on the slopes - it does terrible things to your balance...

Our tip

Like a convention for comedy-lovers, Altitude is very democratic. If you don't want to meet/drink with/throw snowballs at your heroes, this might not be the place for you.
