Val Gardena January 2019

Meet new (like minded) skiers and boarders. Don’t worry about not knowing anyone! Remember they are there for the same reason to have a great time with people who are keen to share the fun and excitement with you.  Certainly, you won’t want the group ski holiday to finish. You will enjoy great times full of fun and entertaining moments amongst great friends.  In short, you will want to come back each year for more.

Door to Door convenience. Getting to different ski resorts in different countries in Europe is tricky with public transport.  It is expensive in private transfers or hire cars.  However, it is extremely convenient in our privately chartered coach.  Once on tour, you do not need to worry about what happens or where do I go next and how do I get there?

More time on slope. Everything organised for you.  Consequently, you will have more time to spend on the slopes. Your Tour Leader/s have been there and done that.  In short, we have planned an exciting and fun ski holiday group tour that works for all ages, abilities and interests.

Remember, there will always be someone to apres ski with

Morzine, Avoriaz
Morzine is a thriving Alpine village set deep in the Chablais mountain range between Lake Geneva and Mont Blanc, by the France-Switzerland border.  It’s roots as an old French farming and mining town are apparent in the village today, where local produce is available at the weekly market, and many of the chalets sport local slate roofs.

Morzine is just over an hour’s drive from Geneva Airport.  It is located the middle of one of the biggest ski areas in the world – the Portes du Soleil ski domain. Certainly, Morzine’s ski area is filled with cruisy, tree-lined blue and red runs.  Further, it’s also linked directly to the ski resorts of Avoriaz and Les Gets. The village lift network of lifts reaches the panoramic Chamossière at 1800 metres, and Avoriaz, at 2100 metres.

The low level traditional chalet-style buildings in Morzine help preserve the town’s character and charm.  As a result, this style of accommodation, along with the attractive skiing, provides the quintessential ski holiday experience.  Consequently, Morzine is a firm favourite with families and groups of friends. In the last few years, Morzine has invested in new lifts and sports facilities. Furthermore, new bars, and high quality restaurants have also begun to emerge, allowing Morzine to compete favourably with many of the big-name resorts in the Alps. With access to 426km of pistes, great quality accommodation and buzzy nightlife, Morzine is one of our favourite ski resorts.

Lech, Zurs, St Anton, Warth.
The Arlberg ski region is the largest single ski region in Austria.  We will stay in Lech and have access to all the ski areas of Lech, Zurs, St Anton, Warth, St Christoph, Stuben and Zug.  Your Arlberg ski pass covers a total of 97 cable cars and lifts, 340 kilometres of ski runs and 200 kilometres of high Alpine deep powder snow runs.

In Lech Zürs nothing stands in the way of true enjoyment on the pistes, and there are numerous rustic huts and “Alps” to keep hunger at bay.  Moreover, world-famous hospitality, tradition and sophisticated tranquillity have been attracting winter sports enthusiasts from all over the world for at least a century to this Eldorado of winter sport.  Lying between 1,450 and 2,450 metres above sea level, the Arlberg region is one of the distinguished circle of 12 locations dubbed “Best of the Alps”.

But it’s not only those with sporting ambitions who get their money’s worth in this heavenly winter landscape, because there is also something on hand for walkers, gourmets and culture lovers in the winter season, which runs from December to April.

And, while here, why not try the White Ring Circuit – the course of the longest ski race in the world.  This ski circuit between Lech, Zürs, Zug and Oberlech is unique in the Alps and has been celebrating skiing in a special kind of way for over 55 years. The original cable cars, lifts and pistes of the “White Ring” still form the centrepiece of the magnificent skiing area of Lech Zürs am Arlberg.

The new lift connecting Zurs to the Rauz area allowing you to ski between the resorts of Zurs and St Anton eliminates the need to catch the town ski bus to get to and from St Anton.

Val Gardena.  In the heart of the Italian Dolomites, skiing – boarding possibilities here are almost limitless.  There are 12 ski areas, 1220 Kms pf groomed slopes

at your disposal under the one ski pass.  Here you can go ski touring and explore this large area even if you haven’t been here before.  Try the Sellaronda circuit.  On the Sellaronda itinerary you can ski around the imposing Sella Group in only one day: this means 26 km of slopes, 4 valleys and three provinces with one single skipass.  Plan for 6 hours excursion and pay attention to getting the last ski-lift in the afternoon (slopes close at 5 p.m.). Ski on the Sellaronda clockwise and counter-clockwise.

And the nightlife here is plentiful with many apres bars open to the wee small morning hours.
