Skiing or Snowboarding

Winter sports are growing in popularity and many people are now having a go at skiing or snowboarding. Once considered to be an expensive pastime, it is now possible to go on a winter sports holiday for a relatively cheaper price. France, Austria, Switzerland and Italy are still popular, but other countries, like Slovenia, Bulgaria, Poland and Romania, are now offering excellent facilities at a cheaper price.

No matter where you choose to go, the most important consideration is which discipline you want to pursue. Both are exhilarating, both offer the chance to experience high speeds and whichever you try, you can guarantee you will fall down a lot when you start out.
