About skiing in Arabba, Dolomites, Italy:
This ski trip to the Dolomite Mountains in north-eastern Italy will take place over half term in February, where we will stay at Hotel Portavescovo, which is a 3 star hotel situated in the village of Arabba, right at the foot of sella Ronda ski lifts.
Arabba is the highest resort in the Dolomites, one of the most famous tourist destinations in the Alps. It is part of the largest ski area in the world, the Dolomiti Superski with 1,200 kms. of slopes to enjoy.
Situated between the more well known ski resorts of Corvara and Canazei, with breathtaking scenery of the Sella Massif and Portavescovo Mountains, towering on either side of the village, Arabba is surrounded by mountain passes or ridges.
Arabba itself offers 52 kms. of slopes, 27 modern lift systems and an excellent link with the other areas of Dolomiti Superski and the Sella Ronda. One of the most notable aspects of this area is the skiing area around "Porta Vescovo" the home mountain of Arabba, which is almost 2,500 meters high.
The village is charming, with much use of wood as used in the Tyrol, a traditional Italian mountain village. Other activities in Arabba include: outdoor ice skating, snowmobiling, ski tours and helicopter rides.
About skiing in Zürs, Italy:
For those of you have not skied with us in Zürs, it is a small village situated in a high valley in the mountains of the Arlberg, in the west of Austria, at an altitude of 1,720m. Zürs has a reputation for good late season snow, and over the years that we have been skiing there we have not been disappointed.
The Arlberg ski pass includes Zürs, Lech and all of the resorts in the St. Anton area. It boasts 260 kilometers of groomed slopes, serviced by 85 modern ski lifts and cable-cars, which open up a tremendous variety of skiing. We have found that there is plenty to keep skiers of all abilities happy and occupied. And there is a wonderful range of off-piste skiing available in fresh snow.
Hotel Erzberg is a traditional, comfortable and stylish hotel, owned and run by Barbara Schneider and her daughter Sabrina. It has a great location, with the village centre and the closest lift only 50 meters away. When there is good snow you are able to ski right back to the ski room door! All 25 rooms have private bath /shower, WC, hairdryer, satellite TV and safe. Most have a balcony. There are five rooms that take a family of four. The bar and lounge make for fun “après ski”, and the sauna, steam room and relaxation area, with infra red therapy cabin, and a possible massage, are wonderful to help ease away your aches and pains. Skis and boots are stored in a heated boot room.
The larger resort of Lech, with greater choice of shopping, restaurants, ice rink and toboggan run, is only 4 kilometers away, serviced by a frequent bus, which is included in your ski pass. The town of St. Anton, for shopping and a different scene for “après ski”, is easily reached by bus or taxi.
