One of my missions in life is to always be a traveler, not a tourist. And one way I chase that goal is to constantly be on the lookout for the undiscovered—to find the hidden gems of the world that offer new yet authentic travel experiences and to share those with my friends. To push boundaries, to plow through wild terrain, to explore. On my March ski trip to Austria and Switzerland, I uncovered some incredible undiscovered destinations that will blow. you. away.
I try my best to get my butt on a bike even through the winter, but when I can’t cycle (or where I can’t cycle), I ski. There has long been a correlation between cycling and skiing. Whether you’re using cycling to keep in shape for skiing, or hitting the slopes all winter to stay fit for your bicycle holidays next summer—these sports complement each other well. When you’re skiing, you’re using the same muscles and getting a real aerobic workout similar to what you use on bicycle tours. With the help of some local friends, I have uncovered some of the best undiscovered ski towns in Austria and Switzerland.
Read on, my friend. And then—ride on.
