What if money was no object? What if there was no limit to the amount of time you could take off, no constraints on where you could go to get your annual shred fix. What would you do?
We’ve compiled a list of some of the ultimate snowboarding adventures we could think of. Some we’ve been lucky enough to do ourselves over the years, others have been undertaken by our jammy contributors, and a few are still on our bucket lists.
But we’d also like to know the best trips you’ve ever been on, and what’s still on your list of dreams – once you’ve had a look through our ramblings feel free to leave a comment below.
1) Van-Living in Japan
Of course, when you’re talking about dream trips, Japan has to come in on top. Russian tundra-dried and chilled winds hit the Sea of Japan, sucking up moisture then puking more powder snow than almost anywhere else on the first bit of land they meet, for the fresh tracks in the deep stuff there’s no better place on earth.
However, rather than joining the well-trodden (and Aussie riddled) path to Niseko, why not do what our editor and chief photog pulled of a few years ago: find a well-insulated camper and seek out all the pockets of goodness you can spot alongside the roads.
