We are returning to Arabba for our Italian guided holiday following an overwhelming success last year. The famous Sella Ronda circuit gives access to the most wonderful skiing. We will have 5 ski instructors from skivo2 to guide us so that the groups can move at different speeds to suit everyone. There will be no need to read a map nor worry about getting the last lift home nor booking a restaurant, you can relax and leave all that to the instructors. The aim is to clock up the miles through this wonderful area and enjoy your day out. If you wish to ask your instructor about your skiing, they will be pleased to give you tips to improve but they won’t be doing drills or teaching the group as a whole.
It is essential to be able to cope with a red run confidently but where possible the leisurely group will choose blue runs whilst the fastest group will choose more challenging black runs when they present themselves. We will stop for coffee and lunch but it is important to be fit enough to ski for the full day as it will not be possible to return to the hotel at lunchtime. Whether you are single or have a partner who does not ski, this is the perfect trip to allow you plenty of time on the slopes whilst enabling you to meet like-minded skiers.
Hotel Olympia in Arabba is our base where we will have breakfast and dinner for 7 nights. They offer rooms to share and a limited number of rooms for single use for a supplement. I will try to find you someone to share with as long as you do not smoke or snore. The lift station is 600 metres away and the hotel provides lockers right by the lift .
Sharing a twin room – £1250
Single use of a double room – £1700–now full
There are a very small number of small single rooms – £1550–now full
Single rooms are now sold out but they are available in Les Arcs on 24 December, , La Rosiere on January 14th & La Plagne March 17th

Skivo2 will bring one minibus from Courchevel for the instructors and so it will not be easy to offer a ride to many guests who wish to join up our March resorts for two or three weeks. Nonetheless once I know how many guests wish to make the journey it may be possible to hire another minibus or car hire and share the cost.
