Ski Festival Guide

THE SKI FESTIVAL SURVIVAL GUIDE Taking the idea of après ski to a new altitude, a fresh generation of winter festivals has popped up in alpine ski resorts, each combining a week of winter sports and music in an unforgettable, Jägermeister-fuelled party on the slopes. SNOWBOMBING MAYRHOFEN, AUSTRIA 07-12 APRIL 2014 AVE 17 SAH * Arctic Disco venue cre ated completely out of snow * Fancy dress street parties * Extreme winter sports events НOT TIP Snowbombing is a festival with one foot in winter and the other in spring. Take shorts and flip-flops, as well as boots and a beanie. Book a room with a balcony. There's nothing like watching the sun go down (or rise) with a cold beer in your hand, knowing that your bed is within falling distance. Chloe Muntz, Spokesperson for Snowbombing Snowbombing Festival THE BRITS TIGNES, FRANCE 30 MARCH - 05 APRIL 2014 * The annual British Snowboard and Freeski Championships * Exhilarating freestyle action from the best UK boarders and skiers * Après ski sessions each night, including a Reggae BBQ and cutting-edge club nights * Eclectic Iline up, with a mixture of live bands and world famous DJs НOT TIP The best way to get the most out of riding on the mountain and enjoying the party atmosphere is to take it to the hoop at Apres. There's no better way to end a day on the mountain than having a few drinks at the bar while listening to some great live music and recounting stories from the day's adventures. You should spend at least one night partying until sunrise - it would be rude not to! But make sure the forecast isn't great for the next day; that way you can enjoy a guilt-free hangover. Stuart Brass, Festival Director The Brits IBIZA ROCKS THE SNOW BIZA ROCKS THE SNOW MERIBEL, FRANCE DECEMBER 2013 TO EARLY APRIL 2014 * Live sets from the hottest breakthrough bands * DJ sets from the pioneers of house and bass music * Ibiza DJs and club brands host daytime Balearic pool parties * Drinks deals at the resort's best venues HOT TIP Pace yourself! Ibiza Rocks the Snow is bringing the party to the piste and you'll need to keep your strength up. So, in between live gigs, the pool parties and the après ski action, make sure you get some you can do it all again the next day. Ally Levin, Spokesperson for Ibiza Rocks the Snow Ibiza Rocks the Snow SNOWBOXX ARINSAL, ANDORRA 26-30 MARCH 2014 HOT TIP * Located in Andorra, a small duty-free country where prices are cheap! A ski festival is all about being the last person on the dance floor and the first person to hit the lifts the next morning. We recommend you stock up on two essential items to get you through the week: Red Bull and Berocca. * Huge capacity over two ski resorts, which means more clubs, more people and more to do * Huge line up with a selection of grassroots talent and massive stadium-fillers Aden Levin, Co-Founder of Snowboxx Snowboxx NOMBOX RA-VIN HORIZON FESTIVAL BANSKO, BULGARIA 08-14 MARCH 2014 * Venues include abandoned secret hotels, mountain stages in the forest, underground clubs, poolside chill-out spots, and more * Perfect snowy playground for people of all abilities, with activities such as sledding for ski-novices * Exciting line up of electronic musicians, including Kerri Chandler, Andreya Triana and Phaeleh НOТ TIP With late night partying and plenty of skiing to be done, there's no time for hangovers. Luckily the mountain air gets you feeling good in no time, but make sure you drink lots of water. Don't underestimate the need to refuel before and after a rigorous day on the slopes, especially if you want to dance through the night. If you see this trip as getting the best of both worlds, you won't exhaust yourself trying to fit two holidays into one.
