We’re traveling to ski resorts in the western U.S. trying to decipher which will provide the best vacation experience for skiers and snowboarders like you. Along the way we’re interviewing locals, taking photos of local skiers and boarders tearing up their hometown hill, and using everything we learn from the locals to create these micro guides. This guide comes in video and written form. Both can be found below.
Australia is so geographically diverse and unique, it’s hard to pick just a few highlights from the country. There are, however, a few activities that stand out, such as sandboarding in the Pinnacles Desert near Perth. Of course, surfing anywhere in the country is fantastic. The Grampian Mountains northwest of Melbourne have hiking and climbing for visitors of all fitness levels and abilities. I probably don’t need to even mention scuba diving the Great Barrier Reef, but I will.
Dubbed by Bill Bryson the world’s most remote city, Perth is among the best cities in the world for outdoors adventures. There’s fantastic diving on nearby Rottnest Island. Surfing and kitesurfing near Perth are world-class, and sandboarding day trips to the Pinnacles Desert can be arranged.
If you’re planning on taking a trip to enjoy the wonderful outdoors, there are affordable flights to Perth that can be booked in advance with sites such as Expedia.
