Snowbombing is a combination of skiing and snowboarding, all tied together with music and hard partying. Austrian resort, Mayrhofen, hosts this prestigious annual weeklong ski party – seven days of fresh air, clear skies, breath-taking ski runs and lively parties.
Take advantage of world-class skiing and boarding facilities, especially their slopes, all to the background of an eclectic mix of music genres on mountaintop venues. After a day giving your muscles a hard workout, or a hard night revelling at one of the many parties, kickback and relax in the spa of a top hotel.
The Snowbombing Festival, considering its popularity, is situated in a small alpine village, but they still manage to pack in a whole host of world-renowned acts and international DJs. Fancy dress events are a must and add to the unique Snowbombing Festival atmosphere, a celebration of the skier’s/boarder’s lifestyle.
The Snowbombing Arctic Disco used to be held at the French resort of Risoul as a nightclub, the first steps in helping it gain such popularity. In 2005, it moved to Austria, which has seen it grow into Europe’s biggest snow and music festival. 2008 saw live acts added to the usual DJ and electronic dance music line-ups, keeping in synch with the indie and rock revival. This year it only gets bigger and better, with the likes of Kasabian, Katy B and Ms Dynamite playing live. Not forgetting dance, DJ legends Carl Cox, Seth Troxler, Maceo Plex and Andy C.

Mayrhofen’s unique layout cleverly combines winter sports with on-piste and après-ski with themed party events in amazing locations. There are dance raves in the igloo village, a forest clearing, plus a party in a remote farm and a street party.
Mayrhofen also has the best snow coverage for the late season. Even after the last Snowbombing festival, the locals still experienced 3’ of powder. The sun also made frequent guest appearances with crystal skies, real scenic photo opportunities.
Those who love their sport and the free and easy lifestyle attend the Snowbombing Festival. People who also simultaneously relish music, mayhem and mountains find this special event one they’ll visit year after year. Group ski holidays don’t come much cooler than this, with a friendly bunch of life’s craziest people, all in to indulge in their sport, their music, and the insane parties.
