Skiing in Denmark?

Skiing in Denmark?

Yes – it could become reality for Danes to go skiing in Denmark! As a nation with so many ski lovers, we have been unfortunate to live in one of the flattest countries in the world! Packing your car or getting on a plane and travel either north or south has been our only option – but that...
