1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your vacation?

Getting out into the nature reserve in winter & learning about the habitat & also the history

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?

Ask about the poles that the operator supplies. They can't be adjusted & our guide suggested that we bring our own adjustable poles.

3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

Yes. We were in a small village which depended on tourism. Our hotel seemed to be the hub of the village. Other villages in the area had been abanoned.

4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?

Good value for money.

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your vacation?

Being in the beautiful Dolomite mountains

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?

Some work on your fitness pays dividends in how much you enjoy the skiing. Shoulders, core and legs all work really hard. I am quite a fit cyclist but I still struggled to keep up with it. It is usually possible to stop early if you can't do the whole day, but obviously you miss out if you do.

3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

Yes

4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?

It was a cracking vacation. Not only great skiing with a good instructor and a great group, but also plenty to do outside the skiing. Maybe the day's skiing was a bit long for beginners, but the instructor accommodated those who couldn't keep up well.

review 1 Jan 2018

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your vacation?

The scenery and skiing was incredible. The people that I met who are now friends were amazing. Skiing over the roof of the stadium is a great memory as well as being told that I was good enough to be able to enter a race.

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?

The fitter you are before you go the more you'll enjoy it. If you've never skiied before then don't worry as you won't be the only one.

3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

Yes because we ate out at lunch in different restaurants.

4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?

Excelllent. The only downside was the flight diversion on the way there consequently meaning that we arrived at our destination 8 hours late.
