Snowboarding in Pas De La Casa with Crystal Ski

A weeks snowboarding in Pas De La Casa, what a blast that was! Andorra's première snow resort did not disappoint as my 2016 snowboarding destination of choice, and having been elected Crystal Ski's Gadget Guru #SkiExplorer for 2016 and then spending a week gracefully (that might be a lie) working my way up and down Pas [...]

What’s in my snowboarding bag for Pas de la Casa, Andorra

So I've been making a bit of noise over the past couple of years around my new found love of snowboarding.  Last year I was lucky enough to fit in trips to both Slovenia and France, having travelled to Bosnia, Scotland and Bulgaria in previous years to get my snow fix. Well, no prizes for [...]

G+ Stories: Snowboarding Vogel, Slovenia

Ah Slovenia, what an amazing first visit to this wonderful country I just experienced.  Whilst I knew of Bled's beauty prior to my visit, I still wasn't fully prepared for just how amazing it was to be, nor was I prepared for the affordability of its skiing and snowboarding opportunities.  On reflection, 5 days in [...]

Budget Snowboarding in Vogel (Slovenia) with the Julian Alps Pass

That's it, done.  100% confirmed.  I hereby commit (whilst my knees are still able) to snowboarding at least once every 12 months for the rest of my life.  I am without a doubt, hooked. Hot on the heels of 4 days snowboarding in Valmorel, it was off to Slovenia for another bought of snow based [...]

Snowboarding in Valmorel [VIDEO]

Ah snowboarding, my new favourite thing.  Not a lot to say about this post really, I went snowboarding in Valmorel, France, loved it and made a video of the trip. I have written a post about how much the 5 days snowboarding (3 full days + 2 halves) in Valmorel cost, so give that a [...]

The cost of 5 days snowboarding in Valmorel

Snowboarding in Valmorel was never likely to fall under budget travel, but I'd promised myself that I would, just this once, splurge and experience a more established snow resort in the alps.  I now bring to you the breakdown of said splurge. Snowboarding in Valmorel Whereas in previous years I had snowboarded in Bulgaria, Bosnia and [...]

What’s in my bag for this years snowboarding trips

Despite my blog post at the start of the month claiming that if you want to travel on a budget you need to travel hand luggage only, there are obviously some trips where that is just not possible.  A ski/snowboarding trip is one such example, unless that is, you plan to hire absolutely EVERYTHING in [...]

Sarajevo: Budget snowboarding in Bosnia

Snowboarding in Bosnia, that didn't quite go according to plan. Due to a lack of snow and my timing, 4 days snowboarding in the mountains surrounding Sarajevo ultimately turned into just the one day.  Ah well, despite being a bit of a control freak, my powers do not extend as far as to be able [...]

Snowboarding in Scotland – Glencoe ski resort

Snowboarding in Scotland is possible in a number of places. On a recent holiday to Scotland (an epic roadtrip I might add), I was lucky enough to get an afternoons boarding in at one of Scotland's six main snow resorts. Granted it was quite what I was used to in terms of ski resorts (not that I have extensive [...]

Bansko: Budget Snowboarding in Bulgaria

Budget snowboarding in Bansko is easily done.  You just need to book everything early and separately.  Its far from being the biggest ski resort in Europe, but if you're looking for a cheap skiing or snowboarding trip within Europe, you could do a lot worse than Bansko in southwest Bulgaria. About Bansko As mentioned, the [...]
