“YOUR LIFE IS ONLY ONE.” The English is wrong, but surely not the sentiment. On the last day of our ski week in Italy last year in Sestriere, my expert guided group sadly ended our last awesome backcountry day and headed back to the hotel. We needed a ride home. Our taxi driver was quite a character. His passion was fishing. I (Skiman) was sitting in the front seat listening to his fishing feats. It became a bit unnerving when he started showing me photos on his phone of a 500 pound tuna he had caught as he drove on a curvy mountain road at a rapid speed! I loved his passion and his story-telling ability, but his driving, not so much! At the end of the ride, I paid him and we all tipped him. As I was leaving, he grabbed my arm, smiled, and said, “Your life is only one. You must keep doing what you love”. I believe the correct English sentiment is “You only go around once”. I totally understood what he was telling me and I gave him a goodbye hug. I loved that old guy’s heart. It beats to the same drummer as mine. I love to ski. I love skiing in the Alps. My life “is only one”. As long as I can, I will ski these majestic European mountains. In keeping with this sentiment, we happily and humbly present our 22nd consecutive Alps Adventure to all who share our passion for the mountains. Austria, Germany, Slovenia…. here we come!
We have taken over 4,000 Americans to Europe over the past 21 years and we want to carry on in the tradition. The Austrian Alps offer some of the very best skiing in Europe and we have procured excellent deals at Kitzbuhel and St. Anton for March 2017. Our ski weeks are from $1144 and include 7 nights in 4-star lodges, daily breakfast and dinner, and private transfers.
We are also offering amazing values on our 3 night Munich Germany pre-trips and a 7 night journey into a country we have never explored: Slovenia. We will visit a lake with a castle in the middle, two world-class caves via train and easy walking, food tasting tours, and much more. Slovenia is a tiny country and we will be able to cover it all with our longest daily drive being 2.5 hours max. The pace will be relaxed and the adventure of discovering a place new to us all will be priceless.
The dollar continues to crush the Euro so everything across the pond is a bargain right now. Click on the links at end of this page for all the segment details.
