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

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.

Soelden. 3 ski mountains higher than three thousand meters above sea level, 2 glacier ski areas and 144 slope kilometers of all difficulty levels: the Sölden ski area promises a maximum of variety during your skiing holiday in Tirol.

There is more than enough snow for enjoyable turns between October and May. Not for nothing the FIS Alpine Ski World Cup Opening traditionally takes place at Rettenbach Glacier where immaculate slopes await you already in the autumn months. Among the 31 top modern mountain lifts there are 2 of the most powerful feeder mountain gondolas world-wide, whisking snow sport fans right from the village center up to 3000 m above sea level without any waiting times.

The high Alpine altitude of the ski resort, stretching from 1350 to 3340 meters. Incredible 2000 meters of difference in altitude!

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