With months of snow still left on Tuckerman the first few 2018 deals are starting to trickle in. This one will get the Boston crew to Spain for less than it usually costs to get to Cali.
Boston to Barcelona, Spain usually runs $650 during the Winter. This fare saves 45% off the average.
Sure Barca is known for it's architecture but the Pyrenees deserve more love than they get for legit big mountain riding, great food with relatively easy access to one of the most enjoyable cities in the world.
Ski and Snowboard
There is always something awesome about taking off in the cold and landing someplace warm... it just doesn't usually happen on a ski trip.
Average February Temperature in Boston: 35F
Average February Temperature in Barcelona: 57F
None of that keeps the mountains from adding the deep stuff.
Barcelona has more interesting and accessible street features than I have seen anywhere else in the world.
Pair that with some of the best hills you will find anywhere and it's a great place to spend some serious time on four wheels.
Two downsides to this deal:
- TAP Portugal lumps Ski and Snowboard gear into their additional sports equipment fees (where some airlines allow snow gear free).
Tack on an extra $100 for skis / boards (total, $50 each way)
- There is a single stop in Lisbon, Portugal
Depending on how long you are going for there are some dates that allow for a full day or half day Lisbon stop, in which case you could actually see a bit of city if you feel like going hard on the way there or the way back.
