I was lucky enough to live in South Africa for a few years with work, whilst I was there as well as enjoying the cold atlantic and warm indian ocean surf experience I was also fortunate enough to get the South African Snowboarding experience

 

In the country of Lesotho (independent kingdom surrounded by South Africa) is a pretty special resort, using the countries only real asset (water) and the cold weather conditions a mix of natural and man made snow provides the saffy's with their snowboarding (and skiing) playground.

 

with a resort only a few times bigger than a UK snowdome, but with a dedicate crew managing the slope, the excellent terrain park and the bar a truly unique travel experience is available.
