Now you can travel to all your favourite and bucket list ski and snowboard destinations around the world from the comfort of your own home (or office). 

The annual Snow Travel Expo has gone virtual in 2020 with an online Snow Traveller Talk series launching today with locals from the best resorts in the world revealing all their secrets. 

Access 60 different resorts, destinations, travel wholesalers and more over six days and then be inspired to plan your next winter escape when borders open and snow travel resumes.
