Snowboarding in Europe

In a couple years I turn 40 and my buddies and I have been seriously thinking about a trip to Europe...it's on my bucket list of things to do. We want to keep it manageable cost wise, so it is looking like Eastern Europe is the most likely of candidates, however, most the places I have looked like Romania, Czech Repub., Poland, cater to mostly the beginner scene.

Typically I drop a grand on a trip out West, so I budget wise, 1500 bucks would be about it. I may be unrealistic here as well, but fomr what I've seen it looks like it could be done. I can get a flight to most places in E. Europe for 8-900 bucks.

Anyone have any experience in these areas and can lend some advice on great places to go with more advanced riding?

Thanks,

Andy

US $1500 for airfare, lodging and lift tickets? If you can swing it anywhere close to this (like less than 2 Gs), let me know... I'd be very interested in hearing about it.

Due to the rising cost of ammo, do not expect a warning shot! Sorry for the inconvenience.

Realistically, we would only plan on riding for 3 days. Figure a day each going and coming back. I know it's short, but so is life

My buddy found what appeared to be a nice condo close to a resort in Czechoslovakia for 240 a week. It included breakfast and dinner.

I know a few people that have been to Bansko in Bulgaria and said it was pretty good. Maybe have a look at that?

Andorra is cheap(ish), too. Pas de la Casa is the main resort there.

Thanks for the suggestions...I checked out Bulgaria and it looks like a much better and even cheaper option that the Czech Repub. The resorts I saw there look pretty cool too. Not too much advanced riding but the Apres' scene could make up for that. I'm going to research Andorra this weekend.
