skiing in austria with the pack society
I’ve always had a love affair for skiing, but, what can I say – skiing is EXPENSIVE.
Pro’s: Excersise / Fun / Pretty landscapes
Con’s: Expensive/ You could break something, very easily / You might get ice, be snow blind, it could be raining ect. / Expensive / Small villages/how do you get there!? / You need a car/take a bus to get to the good spots (eg. Val Thorens)
Because of this pretty imbalanced pro/con list, I’ve always tried to keep my trips as economic as possible through hitch-hiking, easy-jet flights and the cheap AF hostel. I mean, this leaves more cash for food right?
It’s been quite a while since I’ve gone skiing, three years to be exact, for someone who’s grown up in Norway, that’s quite a stretch. So, when The Pack Society asked if I’d want to join their ranks and go on a trip with them I jumped at the opportunity. The Pack Society kitted us out with their line for our trip, ranging from hand luggage, to backpack and bum-bags (best. name. ever). I think a skiing holiday is probably one of the best ways to test out a backpack brand, as you’re putting it through a lot of harsh weather circumstances, strength endurance, a lot of zipping and unzipping, and of course ‘the comfort test’.
So here’s a little visual recap of my week in Austria, I hope you enjoy – and let me know what you think of these ‘Packbacks’ (ya get me)
big love to JAMJAM PR and The Pack Society for sending me on this awesome trip - photographs taken by Sebastiaan Van Thienen - edited by me.
