Who would have ever suspected that one day a real ski festival would be held on the Caribbean island of Saba.
Recently in May this year Saba had the privilege of hosting a visit from a Nordic ski scout team from the United States. The team, consisting of 4 very experienced Nordic skiers, has conducted activities that include walking Saba’s roads and testing roller skiing. The Nordic ski scout team set out on an adventure that ended up blending the beauty of skiing with the joy of hiking. This way they could make the most of the island’s natural terrain. The island’s warm hospitality, coupled with its stunning natural surroundings, left a lasting impression on the team members. As a result, the team was engaged in discussions to consider the island for future ski events.
And now, the time has come. Take advantage of being in ski season shape to discover Saba’s three uphill (really uphill!!) roller ski courses and its network of technical mountain trails. Cross-training (or just celebrating the change in seasons) doesn’t get any better than this. (re: Saba News Sept. 6)
This opportunity will introduce the world of skiing to the Unspoiled Queen of the Caribbean and will strengthen Saba’s reputation as a destination that embraces exciting outdoor adventures.
The Saba Ski Festival will be held on May 5 – May 10, 2024. If you want more information or like to join this festival, it is possible to register online at
