There’s more than one way to get down a mountain … None of these methods involve skis or a snowboard but, from snowbiking to Yooner (no, us neither), all of them look like loads of fun
Where to do it: Les Arcs, France
If you like the thought of getting on skis but baulk at the amount of effort required, ski joering is for you. Originating in Scandinavia as a means of getting around, you are harnessed behind a horse or dog and pulled along, controlling them with your voice and a rig with reins. It’s a good one for getting away from crowded pistes and there’s something quite soulful about enjoying the winter environment in the company of animals. Beginners can enjoy a gentle hack while the more experienced can go on a big gallop through powder.
