We’re back! You may have noticed we took a little break from socials whilst we recharged our batteries after a fun and full on season, now we are back in your feed, ready to inspire your next winter holiday.

And for the observant amongst you, you are correct, these are not pictures and videos of mountains, they’re the Bulgarian Black Sea! The Snomads team took a holiday in one of favourite places, the Bulgarian coast, we ate delicious food, swam in the sun, drank some beers and got a bit sun burnt. We stayed at the excellent @jumpincaravan 🌞
There are many reasons that we chose Poland as a location for our chalets, and one of those reasons is the wonderful and unique traditions that happen throughout the year in the Tatra Mountain region.

One of these is “Odpust Owiec” , a cherished tradition where sheep are led back to the mountain pastures in Zakopane from Nowy Targ in May. This event marks the end of winter and the beginning of the grazing season. 

Shepherds guide their flocks through the streets, accompanied by lively music and colorful festivities. It’s a symbolic journey that highlights the close connection between the local communities and the natural environment. 

As the sheep return to the mountains, they contribute to the ecosystem’s balance while showcasing the region’s rich cultural heritage.

Another amazing season at Snomads has come to an end! Thank you as always to all the awesome guests that come through our chalet doors, you really do make the season what it is.
Here are some of your best bits ➡️
Spring has been pretty glorious in Zakopane this year, but it’s also been a rollercoaster ride! We’ve had fluffy snow, wet snow, icy snow, record breaking winds, gloriously sunny days, perfect powder days, more crazy wind, the dreaded R word (rai*n, the word can never be written or spoken in ski resorts, kind of like Volderm*rt)
We’ve ski toured, perfected our slope style, summited mountains, gone on spectacular walks, witnessed the famous Crocus fields, we’ve soaked in mineral water when the mountain was shut because of the wind, we’ve drank beers in the sun and we’ve followed the herd of mountain deers who have decided to reside in the actual town for around three weeks now 😂 (they’ve popped up in the park, at the corner shop, the ski jump, the cross country ski path, they even had to be stopped from entering the petting zoo).
It’s not exactly been the Spring we were expecting but Zakopane is the best place to be for skiing PLUS, the ‘plus’ being all the other amazing activities you can do here, it’s like a giant winter sport and activity theme park, like Glastonbury Festival but for mountain and winter activities. You name something, you can do it here in Zakopane.
