Ever heard of snowbombing? Well it’s popular enough to warrant a whole festival to be arranged round it, so it can’t be all bad.
The idea is to try your hand (and feet) at skiing and/or snowboarding, all the while making the most of the superb accommodation and superb music. If you’ve never heard a concert on top of a mountain before, now’s your chance.
Where and when to go? Well, Mayrhofen in Austria is the destination and the event usually takes place in April. Check the dates nearer the time to find out when the Snowbombing festival will happen in the coming year.
It’s more than just a weekend of mountainous fun, too. You’ll get the chance to ski, drink, have fun, listen to music and explore Mayrhofen over the course of a whole week, and watch the headline acts too. There’s even a nightclub built out of snow, so when we say it’s got a little bit of everything you could want, we really mean it.
So get ready to witness the pure white powdery awesomeness that is the Snowbombing festival. It’s the best experience you could have if you love winter sports and music and you want it all in one hit.
