10 Top Cities in the World to Live in if You Want to Snowboard Every Weekend

It's safe to say that if you live in close distance to any of these cities you're very lucky. Now what are you waiting for? Pack up your skis and go!

There was a time in Iceland — before the local banks started taking on trillions of debt for the sheer fun of it — when Iceland was so expensive you had to raise a mortgage just to buy a beer.

The banking and currency crisis changed all that, and now a session at Bláfjöll, the country’s largest ski area and only a 30-minute drive from Reykjavik makes both economic and shred sense. No wonder it is a weekend warrior wonderland.

It has 15 lifts serving the wide, open slopes, with three miles of floodlit trails and a cool terrain park. As for après, well Reykjavik is legendary for its nightlife, and these days a few drinks after a killer day snowboarding won’t break the bank.
