Do Something Different

There are plenty of things apart from skiing or snowboarding.

Time was when all there really was to do in a ski resort was, well, ski.

Woe betide you if you got injured, wanted a day off or didn’t want to ski at all.

Now though things have changed.

For the adventurous there’s paraponting, ice climbing and day tours on skis while for the people who want to do something a little less energetic there’s snow shoe walking,  husky dog rides or simply a lazy afternoon in a wellness centre.

Here at PlanetSKI we’re really keen on discovering other things to do out in the mountains rather than just skiing and boarding.

There is so much on offer.

Watch the video below where the director of the tourist office in Les Carroz explains what it offers its visitors apart from skiing.

How about a night ride on one of these in Les Carroz.

Or you could try this….

Or Tobogganing.

You can check also out the local culture.

Check with the tourist office, there are many events that take place around the year.

This was an amazing day in February 2019, it’s the Schellerlaufen in Nassereith in the Tirol.

It’s a biannual an event and it was stunning.

Or if you’re in the mountains at the end of the season you can watch crazy folk pond skimming ?

Visit a mountains festival, there are many around.

This video is from the annual event called “Zermatt Unplugged” where the Kooks were performing along with other artists.

In this guide we look at some of the other things to do in the mountains, read it and see if one takes your fancy.

We hope it inspires you to try something different.

If you want to write in and tell us about any other activities you get up to then email us your story with some pictures to [email protected].

We’d love to hear from you.
