Top 5 / Europe

Denmark is remarkably flat but that doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy pounding some powder during a winter visit. Here are a few ski resorts worth experiencing.

 

Bornholm, Østerlars

Denmark is not a country known for its mountains, so residents learned to make do. Bornholm exemplifies this with a ski lift on the side of what is essentially a glorified hill. Though not high, it still offers decent routes for beginners and experienced skiers.

 

Hedelands Skicenter

Hedeland is the largest ski center in Denmark. Built upon a hill near Roskilde, it offers three lifts and 0.5 kilometers of slopes. With elevations reaching up to 78 meters, it’s one of the highest points in the country for skiers.

 

Copenhill

The futuristic ski slopes of Copenhill rest on an artificial recreational area on top of a waste management center within the city limits of Copenhagen. It offers a ski shop, slopes for all experience levels and a truly unique experience. It opens spring 2019.

 

Aarhus SkiArena

At SkiArena you can hit the slopes without ever stepping outside. Using virtual training technology, the Aarhus SkiArena offers you a visual experience that simulates actual slopes. With dozens of options for skiers and snowboarders alike, it’s the perfect place to hone your skills.

 

Hoch Hylkedal

The Kolding Ski Club operates an alpine ski slope facility that offers lifts and four separate pistes. Each piste is between 150 and 250 meters long, with an average slope of 20 percent. Its location inside of a forest provides great options and wonderful views.

Leave Troublesome Rideshare Worries Behind

We can see it now and remember when it happened to us: Watching as the black car icon loops around and around, seemingly endlessly, and our wait time on the rideshare app continually changes. Long wait times and confused drivers are just a few bothersome issues that can nag at rideshare users. Need a solution? Ditch rideshares altogether in favor of renting a car on your next trip.

Bitter Cocktail Bar, Barcelona

Barcelona has seen a recent influx of craft cocktails bars within the past five years or so, and Sant Antoni seems to be one of the city’s epicenters of such swanky watering holes. Amid the crisscross streets, organic grocery stores and the soon-to-open, recently renovated Sant Antoni market is Bitter, an inconspicuous cocktail bar where there’s more than meets the eye.
