Adventure Vacation on Skis
Feel like having an adventure vacation on skis ? Want to cruise down the slopes of different mountain ranges, on different continents? If you want to know what to expect, myself (Chris) with Aggie, will give you our perspective. We have visited a lot of these destinations, and are actively seeking out new ski adventures.
If you are contemplating an adventure vacation skiing, or snowboarding, cannot resist the lure of white powder, pristine mountainous terrain, join us for this journey.
What is wonderful is that different skiable regions have different ambiance, feel, character and generally
offer a different vibe. Not many ski destinations are the same. European ski resorts offer a different cultural aspect, historical perspective which is difficult to match in younger countries. On the other hand the grandeour of Alaska, or Andes cannot be eclipsed by gentler skiable mountains. Skiing next to Fjords, lakes, down the glaciers, across two mountain ranges in a day, can only be the beginning of your adventure vacation on skis.
