Snowminds, being a start-up by nature, has since our beginning in 2012 been head quartered in Copenhagen, Denmark, from where we have expanded from ski instructor programs to the creation of our own clothing brand, language courses, adventure skiing trips, ski school and ski rental bookings and much, much more. Our activities touches customers in Denmark, Germany, The Netherlands, Sweden and the English market, and we embrace our national diversity and believe that is what makes us strong. All we do is rooted in our ambition; to give ski and snowboard enthusiast lifetime experiences in the snow around the World.
