Even though we are in the middle of summer, it is never too early to start thinking about the upcoming ski season. From beginner sledding to experienced heli-skiing, there are a number of places around the world where you can plan your next trip that might not be on your usual ski resort radar. Some of these places are in distant lands and offer world-class snow and terrain, with unique culture. So here is a list of some of the world’s best skiing destinations.
1. The Monashees, British Columbia
It has been said that some of the best heli-skiing in the world can be found in British Columbia, especially in the Monashees. Here the terrain is famously “steep and deep,” getting about 66 feet of snow each season. Two-thirds of the runs here go right through old forest with well spaced trees, offering some spectacular terrain. On average, skiers who stay for about a week will descend at least 100,000 feet, so have fun.
2. The Andes, Chile
Every summer, it is getting more and more popular for skiers and boarders to head down to Chile for the southern hemisphere winter. The Central Andes have access to about 1,900 square miles of epic heli-skiing terrain. While the snow is more “light and dry,” it may not be what you are typically used to but worth the trip. The variety of the terrain alone (ridges, huge faces, steep couloirs, bowls, and volcanoes) is enough to create a one of a kind ski adventure that you will never forget.
Indonesia, the country I live right now has a warm tropics weather all over year, we have only two seasons, hot and rainy season. And in April like now, seems that the rain already left us little by little, and the heat starts jumping on us. And not just that, in transition period, the air turns quite dry, I can feel it clearly how it influence my skin.
But on the other hand, Indonesia has given so much adorable sightseeing to watch on. With the nature’s beauty provided, we can choose the various kinds of travel and fun vacation, and many outdoor activities may be taken. From beach to mountain, all choices are there. And the more unique thing is, though in some are in Indonesia has sometimes up to 34′ celcius heat, but we have a high snowy mountain. The mountain is called Mount Jayawijaya and lies in the province of Papua, the east part of Indonesia.
Speaking about vacation spots in which to pick , for me, the outdoor vacation will certainly urge me to get my own sleeping bags. See I got some trouble of sleeping, so I won’t miss my sleeping bags, I wanna stay warm during nights of my outdoor vacation .
How bout you guys, how’s your outdoor travel will be ?
Egypt. There are so many things in my head if you ask me about Egypt. Like now, my mind all of the sudden flies to ancient stories of the prophets, the legends of Pharaoh, to the very typical depiction of Cleopatra – who’s been so popular for centuries until today- with her hair and fashion style.
Counted to the present time, Egypt has been well-known for their unique culture. The dances, the customs, the black and golden stripes suits, the fashion, the histories, the cuisine, the famous camel racing of Sharm el-Sheikh, the legendary Niles, and the architecture. The great pyramids built in ancient moments and the famous sphinx is priceless. With this bunch of sensible reason, no wonder Egypt has become an international travel destination.
