Hey guys so i have done several seasons in North America but have never skied over this side of the globe. I am looking to complete most of a season from Janurary to April this year and need advice on where to go. i am currently travelling Europe and asking most locals i know and they all push me in the direction of Austria. Here are my circumstances and any advice would be muchly appreciated.
I am 23 years old, and have a few seasons under my belt. With the exception of Corbets Colour there was no runs in Jackson Hole that caused me to hesitate so i want a mountain that is going to challenge me.
I am on a budget so money is an issue wrt. skiing, accomodation and apres.
I want a town with enough young people that i will be able to find a nice group of people and will be able to go to a packed bar when we feel like it.
I also got right into back/slack country so anywhere that offers great facilities for that would be awesome.
Also somewhere i should be able to find accomodation for myself and a friend if we come over that bit late.
Priorities go Skiing first.
