Earlier this month, we headed to Rave on Snow festival in beautiful Saalbach Hinterglemm, Austria. We invited Sibling-Blogger Mona and Elias Rayani to come with us. Here’s what they had to say about the festival and their love of snow in general:
What was your highlight at Rave on Snow?
Definitely the open air party on Saturday at Schattenberg. The location, the mood and the music was amazing and made the evening unforgettable.
What´s your favourite snow-activity in winter?
Elias loves to go snowboarding, Mona prefers skiing or going on a sleigh ride.
What´s your favourite snow-hotspot in winter?
We love Ischgl. Especially the top of the mountains concerts they have there, they’re a must for us.
Where would you like to go skiing/boarding and why?
Our dream is to go to the Canadian rockies. Besides the beautiful nature, the snow is supposed to be a way lighter and drier than in the Alps.
What makes a perfect snowday?
For a perfect snowday there has to be sun, chunky warm clothes, family and friends and good food. We’d start our snowday with a balanced breakfast and end up at a hut having lunch as a well needed break from exhausting skiing/boarding. Most of the time we’d have a mulled wine to stay warm. In the evenings we like to end the day with a good après ski party and dance the night away.
What tips do you have for braving the cold?
With the perfect clothes you don´t need to ‘brave the cold’. We love our new snow wear, which keeps us dry and warm, protecting us from the cold. Also a good mood, anticipation of the next day and hot beverages.
