Overseas adventuring below the equator leads to surfing in the sun; overseas adventuring far, far above the equator leads to winter sports in beautiful alpine weather. Skiing and snowboarding are hard to miss while traveling in places like Norway and Western Europe (there are hundreds of ski resorts in the Alps). That is, if you don't mind packing your snowboard or skis and hauling them across the world with you (or renting some when you arrive). Make sure to research your ski destination with an eye toward matching your level of skill and experience. Inclusive deals are a way to save money, as ski resorts clumped together geographically may offer passes to come and go freely between locales (the Zermatt area in Switzerland is one example).
