Everyone knows that you can ski in the French Alps or the American Rockies, but what about the more mysterious mountain ranges of the planet? What’s it like to ski in India, Iran or Iceland?

SnowSphere.com is “the magazine for snow travellers”; a travel webzine for winter sports fans, it features articles about skiing and snowboarding in the more secret corners of the ski world.

Bored of Kitzbühel? Try skiing in Kashmir, Kosovo or Kazakhstan. Done Breckenridge? Then why not go snowboarding in the Balkans. Europe a bit passé? Swap the Austrian Alps for the Australian Alps.

In addition to ski travel articles, there are also ski book reviews, interviews with interesting characters from the winter sports world (such as the Man Who Bought a Mountain in Slovakia) as well as articles covering other unusual snow stories such as Fashion in Snowboarding or the Skiers Vs Snowboarders divide.

Shunning well known ski destinations in favour of those “off the beaten piste” places, SnowSphere.com is a place where intrepid skiers and snowboarders can get inspired for snow trips that are more than just ski holidays; they’re also adventures into a foreign lands, languages and locals’ lives.

SnowSphere.com is run by Sam Baldwin, Skyscanner’s travel editor (I knew there must be some perks to this job! – Ed)
