… and this is the first time i’ve ever said that! But tomorrow is my Birthday (i know Happy Birthday to me! :)) and what better way to celebrate than trying a new sport out. Ok, i did try it before, but that is a whole different story, which ended up with a lost snowboard, the rescue team “rescuing” me and turned out to be the mot expensive vacation  ever…  and afterall i did not spend more than 10 minutes on the board, Anyway BF says i have the “ideal body” for snowboarding so he invested in snowboarding gear (birthday and xmas present) and i invest in trying not to break myself! Wish me luck! I’ll be in the Alps….

P.s: check out my skiing near Barcelona roundup!

With winter knocking on the door i can’t help but get excited for the skiing/snowboarding season ahead of us! One of the major attraction of Barcelona to me has always been that while you’re right on the beach you can be in the mountains, ski-ready in a matter of hours, you can even do daytrips if you want to!

After some research i came up with the following list of ski resorts to check out:

Within 2 hours of Barcelona

– La Molina

– Masella

– Port del Comte

Vall de Nuria

Within 2,5 hours of Barcelona  (all in Andorra)


– Encamp

Ordino – Arcalis 

Pal – Arinsal

– Pas de la Casa

Soldeu el Tarter

Within 3 hours of Barcelona

– La Massana (Andorra)

Have you tried any of them? Any (other) recommendations???

If you’re in the city don’t miss the Barcelona Snow show on the 7th of November!

One of my new year resolution for 2010 is: learn to snowboard!

(oh i did have one attempt years ago, which ended with me being alone in a forest covered with snow, waiting for the rescue team… rental snowboard lost forever… well, that’s a story for another day 🙂
