Hawaii for Skiing, Sun and Stars Lovers

After a day on your skis, wouldn’t it be perfect to go and pamper yourself in the hot tropical sun? No problem! In Hawaii, you can do both of these things in the same day!

Mauna Kea volcano, which is more than 4 kilometers above the sea level, is covered with snow from December to February, which is the perfect time for you to plan a visit to the ski resort! Although there are no professional tracks, adrenaline junkies are still able to enjoy skiing as much as they want.

For a romantic rendezvous with a loved one, don’t miss the observatories at the top of the mountain as well. It’s the perfect end to a day filled with fun, snow, and skiing!

A skiing trip with a bit of propaganda

Although at many resorts around the globe skiers can enjoy crisp white mountains and beautiful views, this is not true for North Korea without conditions. In the Masikryong, winter sports enthusiasts are accompanied by propaganda broadcasted from the big screens located all over the resort.

To be fair, this ski resort still has its pluses – here you might be the only group of tourists enjoying themselves since this resort is so closed-off and expensive, many locals can’t really afford to visit it. Getting a visa for tourists can also be extremely complicated. But who knows – maybe you will get lucky and visit this exotic resort one day?

 

In Japan enjoy skiing and cultural center

During your stay in Japan’s Nagano Prefecture, make sure plan your trip so you can visit the Nozawa Onsen resort. Here you will not only be able to test the excellent ski routes but get access to the country’s unique culture as well.

Despite the fact that you won’t find many luxurious hotels here, you will get a chance to stay at one of the traditional Japanese inns. After your ski trip, don’t forget to enjoy a soak in one of 13 refreshing hot streams also found in Nozawa Onsen resort. In this way, you will get a chance to treat yourself with a spa level experience!

 

The resort of Israel – with skis and guns

While skiing on Mount Hermon resort in Israel, you will have a unique opportunity to peek into two countries that now suffer from war. From the mountain that is located on the country’s border, you can take a look down both at Syria and Lebanon.

To be fair, don’t be surprised to see dozens of armed soldiers walking around you. Israeli military forces provide one hundred percent safety for visitors so that you can calmly enjoy the excellent tracks, suitable for both professionals and amateur skiers.

 

 

 

Peaceful and unknown winter wonderland in Africa

Not many of us know about the Kingdom of Lesotho, surrounded by the Republic of South Africa. But it is necessary to visit this little lost kingdom for all those who love skiing.

There is a small ski resort on the top of the Malota Mountains, and you should definitely visit it if you want to enjoy peacefulness and tranquility without tons of other tourists wandering around.

By the way, snow lovers should know that the best time to visit this resort is during summer – the snow falls there from June to August, so you can have a perfect winter getaway in the middle of the summer!

So check them out before you plan your next ski trip to one of these amazing resorts and enjoy winter once more!
