With the strengthened Aussie dollar there is no better time to plan an overseas holiday and as Australia’s Italian snow holiday experts, Skiare Ski Tours are offering their latest range of affordable tour packages to one of the most stunning ski terrains in the world, the Dolomites, the time is right to indulge in this super cool getaway!
From February 11th to March 17th, Skiare is throwing in seven days free ski hire with a Skiare Silver Holiday. The Silver holiday package priced from just $1,950 per person based on a brand new ski in ski out apartment or $2,650 per person in private hotels with breakfast and dinner included is exceptional value as it includes seven nights accommodation, six day Dolomite Superski pass with private transfers for a days skiing in Cortina and other ski areas when required, six days of guiding and instruction and transfers from Bolzano or Alta Badia. Transfers from other locations such as Innsbruck, Verona, Venice or Munich are also available for a nominal surcharge.
What sets a Skiare holiday apart from others is that is highly personalised with each and every package being designed specifically to meet individual needs and the flexibility to cater for all tastes and budget with their range of hotels, pensions, B&B’s and apartments, all privately owned and run by the families who own them.
Part and parcel of the personalised Skiare experience is having a European expert ski instructor guide you to the best destinations in the Dolomites remarkable 1,200 km of skiable terrain while providing expert tuition and tips along the way; so whether you are a novice or seasoned skier, you will literally come away feeling like a local and better for the experience!
Skiare’s local knowledge guarantees you a sensational Dolomites experience. Skiare’s principals ski instructor, Thomas Peintner who was born and bred on the slopes of Alta Badia and his Australian wife Debbie who boasts more than 15 years experience working in travel, personally designs every ski day for their guests, whether it be a cruisy day skiing while exploring hidden valleys and taking in sights like spectacular frozen waterfalls or if you’re up for a challenge, skiing the World Cup run or long, untouched, powder laden off-piste trails and incredible shutes.
They also deliver on unexpected surprises and unique experiences ranging from unique plough horse tows run by local farmers, reaching a 3,312 metre high glazier by helicopter to take the ultimate long run all the way back to your hotel!
And for those travelling with non-skiers who are interested in experiencing the beauty of the World Heritage listed Dolomites, without hitting the slopes, they can organise alternative activities ranging from Farmer’s Cooking Classes to museum visits.
The off snow and après ski experiences are just as rewarding. With three languages and a wonderful fusion of Italian, Austrian and Ladin cultures, new experiences are around every corner. Whether you are wanting to try local delicacies at the locals favourite eateries, fine wining and dining at a 3 Michelin Star restaurant or even visiting some exceptional local wine cellars, Skiare’s knowledge of the 100 plus mountain huts, local bars, pizzerias, trattorias, Michelin Star and Gambero Rosso restaurants is second to none.
The Dolomites season runs through until April 10th 2012 and if last year’s winter is any indication, this year promises to be a bumper season.
