Skiing and snowboarding

Where: Whistler, Canada

When: November through to April (this is when the slopes are at their most quiet!)

Why you should go: It is a legendary place to take to the snow! The resort is home to over 200 trails in over 8000 acres, and it is regarded as a backcountry paradise for skiers and snowboarders alike. It was also good enough for the Olympics! If that wasn’t enough – and we know it isn’t, the apres scene is equally legendary.


Where: Himachal Pradesh, India

When: January through to March

Why you should go: The views are incredible! Not only do you get to soak up the views from up in the sky, but you will start your run on a drop 5000 metres up in the mountains with the Himalayan peaks towering above you! Then you’ll get to experience perfect powder all the way down, through towering forest. To top it off, the vibrant culture of the Kullu Valley will seal it as an experience of a lifetime.

Cross-country skiing

Where: Peer Gynt Trail, Norway

When: February and March

Why you should go: Norway is the birthplace of cross-country skiing, and the Peer Gynt trail is truly iconic. The trail itself is approx 80km long, reaching from Espedalen Valley to Skeikampen mountain resort. Guides will take you though terrain that includes frozen lakes, remote valleys and peaceful woodlands, stopping on the way to stay in lodges so you can explore other trails along the way.


Where: Langjökull Iceland

When: March to June (Icelandic spring, when the weather is more pleasant)

Why you should go: Translating as The Long Glacier you know what to expect here! It may not be the largest glacier in Iceland, but it is thicker and is less likely to be affected by local volcanic eruptions! Expect pristine snow, sweeping vistas, and ice valleys across near on 1000 square km of seemly infinite powder.
