The 5 Best Mountains for Winter Sports


What's up! Winter is here in full swing, and with it comes our favorite sports. Skiing, snowboarding, mountain climbing, I can't get enough.

Now that the season is upon us, I thought it would be fitting to give you the top 5 favorite mountains for winter sports.

 

1. Aspen, Colorado

Aspen is known for it's four mountains to choose from - Aspen Mountain, Aspen Highlands, Buttermilk, and Snowmass. With multiple trails on each mountain, it's great for group outings.

To top it off, Aspen has a great nightlife. With the plethora of hotels, bars, and mountains to choose from, you won't have much time for sleep!

 

2. Whistler-Blackcomb, Canada

Whistler-Blackcomb is great for families and experienced shredders alike. There are designated "Go Slow" & "Family" zones for the little ones to safely practice as well as more serious slopes for those looking for that adrenaline rush.

Also, this location is home to 'Canada's coolest film fest', the Whistler Film Festival. Once a year this killer fest happens right in the resort, making great entertainment once you're off the slopes.

 

3. Dolomites, Italy

Dolomites is home to the Sella Ronda, a circular ski route that offers 26 km of downhill trails in a single day. Going back up is no issue with the huge amount of skylifts and cableways.

Of course, being in Italy always comes with amazing food. There's nothing like coming down after a long day of skiing and chowing down on a delicious pasta dish followed by a hot espresso!

 

4. Jammu & Kashmir, India

This location is certainly not for the feint of heart, or someone new to winter sports. Between the massive human congestion and high altitude of 4,000 meters, it takes someone with experience to enjoy and navigate this rugged terrain.

But for those who can tough it out, the views alone are worth the trek. India is also a country loaded with culture and rich food, so no matter what you do in this country, you will never be bored.

 

5. Asahi Dake, Japan

Powder people say that Asahi Dake gets some of the most fluffy & dry powder in the world, with snowfall almost always guaranteed.

It's tallest mountain stands powerfully at 2,290 meters, and is also a live volcano. Skiing or snowboarding down a mountain away from lava sounds like something out of a Tom Cruise movie, but it's a possibility visiting here!

I honestly haven't been to any of these locations, but from what my friends & the FNDN community tells me, they are by far the best.

What do you think? Any mountain or location we missed? Let us know in the comments!

 

See ya next week,
