You’re hurtling down the piste at a rate of knots. Weaving in and out of the snowboarders sat down, infuriatingly, in the middle of the piste clipping in. You hit a lip and fly through the air, tuck in and land smoothly on the slushy mid-afternoon spring snow.

Sounds like fun, right? Now close your eyes and imagine the same experience, but with AC/DC’s Back in Black forming the soundtrack. If you tell me that doesn’t make it way cooler then you’re telling porkies!

Listening to music whilst skiing has to be one of the best things ever. Sometimes it can seem a little anti-social, and can be fairly risky if you’ve cranked up your drum and bass a tad too loud to be able to hear what’s going on around you. But who can beat speeding down a slope to your favourite tune (and while you’re there why not try some mid-air dance moves or pretend you’re in that god awful East 17 Christmas video!)


Here at Ski in Luxury we’ve taken some time to pick our own personal faves and whack them into a playlist for you on both Google Play Music and Spotify. Give them a listen. If you like them, download and give them a try. If you find yourself thinking “how can these people have such awful music taste” then give it a go yourself, seriously there’s no helping some people.

Without further ado, here are all our choices and links for you to give your ears a treat…
