Think you know European skiing and snowboarding? Think again. Eastern Europe is home to vast, unexplored terrain and some of the best powder stashes on the continent. Offering affordable prices and a unique culture, but with the comforts of Western-style lodges and facilities, it won’t be long before Eastern Europe is one of the world’s top skiing and snowboarding destinations and LUEX can take you there before everyone else.
Ski resorts and ski trip providers are popping up all over Eastern Europe from the Ukraine, to Poland, Romania, Georgia and Macedonia and LUEX offers trips to some of the best new places. Whether you choose a trip to the Caucasus region of Georgia or the Fargaras Mountains of Romania, you’re sure to find highly versatile terrain with steeps, tree runs, cliffs, glacier skiing and lots of open chutes and snowfields. Many areas of Eastern Europe receive more annual snowfall than the Alps with 10 to 15 meters a year on average.
On an Eastern Europe ski trip, you might want to spend every minute taking advantage of the wide open slopes but don’t pass up an opportunity to learn about the unique cultures of your destination country in Turkey, Romania, Georgia or Macedonia, an exotic locale that is unfamiliar to many and offers a chance to experience the traditions of an ancient culture. From trying new foods to exploring charming villages, there’s plenty beyond the slopes in Eastern Europe.
With so much exciting terrain and incredibly affordable prices, you might expect Eastern Europe to be overcrowded, but this little treasure has yet to be discovered by many, so you can enjoy a low crowd factor even while in Europe. What’s better
than great terrain and cheap prices? How about short flights too? Most ski trip locations in Eastern Europe are located just a few hour plane flight from central and Western Europe, making travel quick, easy and convenient for skiers and snowboarders who want to enjoy a short-duration ski trip.
