Snow Festivals are the latest craze and they are popping up all over Europe. In case you don’t know, Snow Festivals are week long, slope side events combining skiing, boarding and music laden après ski with forest raves and late night parties. Sound like your kind of event? Check out this infographic from ZooHood which rounds up all best snow festivals in Europe including a little information on the resort itself.
You don’t have to be a pro skier to enjoy a Snow Festival. I’m certainly not one to brag about my skiing career but that hasn’t stopped me visiting a few festivals over the years. I can take on any blue run and I approach the reds with caution. My favourites are the beer runs and at festivals these seem frequent, and they always lead to buzzing après ski. What are you waiting for? Tickets are available now.

This infographic highlights some snow festivals in Europe. The consistent color palette keeps the eye engaged throughout the infographic, and there's a nice balance of festival data and description. The initial section provides a breakdown of location information, including altitude, country, and ski level. The icons associated with each point are helpful to access some visual communication, though at times they may be a bit too detailed for quick comprehension. The map in the background has a visual approach, though it also may distract readers since the festivals are located in more focused area. The second half of the infographic relies on festival logos to provide visuals alongside individual descriptions. The reason for splitting the infographic in half like this isn't quite clear, since a reader would have to continuously return to the first half to recall the festival location. Also, occasional typos and the shift to a sentence-based approach might slow the reader down in their information consumption. There's a strong start to this infographic, but it needs a bit of work to maintain consistency throughout. We'd give this an F.
