Explain Snowbombing? Where to start... Mayrhofen, Austria, that’s where. Up a massive mountain 8,497 FT above ordinary! The finest ski resort in Europe, sprinkled with world class acts, insane venues (think Igloo rave, enchanted forest party, tennis club turned super club). Blue runs, black runs, beer runs. More? Add Eddie The Eagle, throw in a pool party, a celebrity butcher named ‘Hans', whack a luxury jacuzzi on every other rooftop, stand back and survey the majesty. If it's good enough for Mr. Motivator, it’s good enough for you. As Fatboy Slim one eloquently put it: “there’s no shared experience in the world as mental as this”.

Snowboard Guide rating 8 out of 10
“Big area, with some decent freeriding, and maybe the best park in Austria. Has a big British seasonaire contingent, and the home of Snowbombing and the Altitude festivals.”
