Sleep in yurts and ski through the wilds of Kyrgyzstan
Campers, ski tourers and full-on adventurers, here’s a trip for you. New for 2017, Snoworks has introduced a big old touring adventure through the ski sites of Kyrgzstan. It’s certainly no Val D’Isere – this place is so far off the map you might have to Google it (the neighbouring countries are Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan, Tajikistan and China, FYI). You’ll be ski-touring your way through the Tian Shan mountains, part of the old Silk Road between the Mediterranean and Asia. The slopes will be accessed via snowmobiles and at night you’ll be resting up in a traditional yurt camp – which is a hell of a lot better than a two-man tent from Millets, we’d say. Competent, experienced skiers only, please. If there’s ever a time to know your limits, this is certainly one of them.
Blow some cash in Las Vegas, USA
No, we’re not having a laugh. Not this time anyway. If you can’t resist the lure of the neon lights, slot machines and roulette tables of the Strip, but want a face full of powder too (we’re talking skiing, remember) then head to Utah and Nevada. Ski Safaris self-drive trip will have you checking out the immaculate piste skiing and powder bowls of Utah before an optional add-on of Vegas, where you’ll swap padded jackets for casino-crawling gear. Fun, but an absolute packing nightmare, no doubt.
Learn to snowboard with Olympian Jenny Jones in the French Alps
The Summer Olympics are long gone, so it’s time to start obsessing about the 2018 Winter Olympics in South Korea. Get into the mood with a new week-long snowboarding workshop, taking place from 11-18 March, with Olympic bronze medalist Jenny Jones. Designed to help adventurous boarders take their riding to the next level, the sessions will be led by Jenny and her stellar team of coaches, sports psychologists and mountain yogi, who will help you improve your technique and confidence, getting you clued up on the physical and mental tools that’ll advance your riding. You’ll be kipping in a chalet in the small but well-formed resorted of Sainte Foy, and learning (and maybe partying) with an Olympian in the process. Golden.
