Staying true to Blue
Plein Soleil (Purple Noon) 1960
With the Olympics in Sochi winter sports have been a lot in the news recently. To capitalize on this I have decided to make a small list of ski-areas.
Classic: The Three Valleys
As the largest ski area in the world it has 600 km of slopes and 183 lifts. The entire area can be skied using just one pass. With this in mind be sure to plan a long vacation if you want to go skiing on every slope.
Far Flung: Tsaghkadsor
For the ones who want to get away from the masses and retreat to silence there is Armenia. Quite cheap when there this destination has recently been renewed, as it used to be the former Soviet winter Olympics team practice base. Although not very known most of the appeal comes to Ski-Mountaineering and Heli-Skiing.
Après-ski: St Anton
Ready to party? Austria is. St. Anton has world renowned après-ski bars such as Mooserwirt and Krazy Kanguruh. This is a no brainer for anyone who likes to party after a hard days skiing. If you’re too stuck-up for St. Anton you might want to look close by for Solden which is also in Austria.
Park Heaven: Whistler
Not everybody likes long straight slopes, some like big jumps and half pipes. Luckily there are enough parks out there, but Whistler, Canada takes the stage by reinventing itself every year. With eight total parks and over 200 obstacles this is funpark heaven.
Relax after hitting the slopes.
