Snowbombing is described as the Glastonbury of ski resort festivals, held annually in the spring at the Austrian ski resort of Mayrhofen. Eat. Ski. Rave. Repeat. is the motto, then you know what to do.
A festival up a mountain 8,497ft above ordinary, in one of the finest ski resorts in Europe, showcasing world-class acts in the most unique venues imaginable (think igloo rave, enchanted forest party, underground tennis club turned super club). Luxury spas, authentic alpine cuisine, and not a tent in sight. Blue runs, black runs, schnapps runs. Add Eddie The Eagle, throw in a pool party, a celebrity butcher named "Hans", whack a luxury jacuzzi on every other rooftop, stand back and survey the majesty. If it's good enough for Mr. Motivator, it’s good enough for you. As Fatboy Slim once eloquently put it: “There’s no shared experience in the world as mental as this”.
Eat. Ski. Rave. Repeat.
Wake up. Quick Austrian roll with coffee. Salopettes on. Catch the first lift. Let rip on the slopes. Mine's a Stein. Back on it. Warm down with Mr. Motivator. Back down the mountain. Schnaps. Schnitzel. Spa. Rave in an Igloo. Party in a forest. Rave a bit more. And a bit more. Hit the hay. Wake up. Do it again in 2018.
