Skiing Hawaii on top of Mauna Kea

  • 28 August 2014 |

You like hitting the slopes? You’re tired to see the same old same old styles areas? Did you know you could go Skiing Hawaii on top of Mauna Kea? We didn’t, but it’s certainly on our bucket list from this day on. How awesome would it be to conquer a sleeping volcano on a snowboard?

Yes. That’s right. The biggest ‘slope’ at Hawaii is right on top of Mauna Kea, a sleeping volcano. The highest point of this friendly monster is 4205 meters and yes, it snows there every now and then. There’s a downside to all of this. There are no lifts. You need to use a 4×4 car that will bring you as high as possible.
