Ballsy Brit rider Paul Wilson took off after university, discovered some insane powder in Slovakia, bought a chalet and never returned to the UK. Nine years later, Propaganda are the most well-known British chalet company in the resort of Jasna, Slovakia – with two chalets, a snowboard school and a summer wakeboarding camp. Propaganda isn’t about having a super-luxurious pad with tea and home baked cakes (though that’s not to say the accommodation isn’t very comfortable). These chalet hosts love getting out on the slopes, guiding you around the secret powder spots during the day and Jasna’s bars at night. All for silly prices – after all, beer is a mere 60p per pint!
