Top 10 Places to Snowboard and Surf on the Same Day

Everyone has things they want to do before they die – a list of goals they desire, nay, are meant to achieve. Snowboarders are no different. In fact, this may apply even more to boarders where goal-orientated activities are just par for the course, getting more pop off the next jump, landing a difficult trick you’ve been practicing or being the first one down the slope on fresh powder…..the list goes on. Top of that list, or damn near close…

Blizzard of Oz 1, 2.0 and most recently 3.0. Blizzard of Oz 3.0 hit on September 4th and dumped close…

Resort Guide: Hemavan-Tärnaby, Snowboard with Vikings

They are actually two resorts, 18 kilometres apart from each other. 900 kilometres north of…
