Ski & See Europe 2016

 

 

 

     

       
 

 

Hi Skiers & Snowboarders!

 

 
I am very excited to announce that I have the Ski & See Europe 2016 trip set! This is the 21st annual trip that I have led and I wanted this to be as fun and memorable a trip as I have ever planned. I am certain that I have accomplished just that! 


We are headed to one of the best ski resorts in all of Europe, Morzine, France for skiing and the three-day extension to experience the world famous Mediterranean climate of the French Riviera!! We will be traveling in early March for some sunny spring skiing and the Mediterranean weather of the French Riviera should be stellar.  I am more than certain that this will be one our best trips ever!

Morzine, France

Friday, March 4 - Saturday, March 12 


Morzine is one of the best combinations of skiing, après ski,

nightlife and village atmosphere in all of France. It is always rated as one of the top ski resorts in the world for both skiing and partying! Morzine is steeped in the tradition of excellent skiing for all levels. It is located smack-dab in the middle of the second largest interlinked ski area in the world! There are fourteen 

resorts that are linked by one lift system and ski pass.  Each can be easily skied from Morzine. 

 

These resorts make up the world famous Portes du Soleil ski area which has over 650 kilometers of excellent skiing for all levels. In actuality we will be skiing in both France  and 

Switzerland  as the Portes du Soleil includes seven resorts in 

France and seven Swiss resorts. Be sure to bring your passport 

because you will be crossing the French/Swiss border daily!  You

will also have the tough decision whether you want a French lunch

or a Swiss lunch! 

 

This region of the Alps is absolutely stunning and will provide you with some eye popping high elevation vistas. Après ski (happy

hour) in Morzine is well known as France's best. With over 30 bars and 75 mountain restaurants there is fun to be had everywhere. For those new to European skiing you should know that après ski is taken to a whole different level than U.S. resorts with music pumping on outdoor patios and dancing in your ski boots as the norm. After après ends the nightlife continues seamlessly into the wee-hours of the morning.

 

Even with its ski hard… party even harder mentality, Morzine has 

a very refined side as well. The village is pristine and has maintained its original French Alpine charm with 200 year old 

churches, cobble stoned streets and old wooden chalets being the

norm. People looking for laid back wine bars and upscale local shops are also well catered to. with nearly one hundred restaurants the region is also well known for superb traditional French and Swiss cuisine both on and off the mountain.

 

To add to the fun we will have our fourth annual “costume ski day” on the mountain and an optional day trip to Annecy, France. It is known as the Venice of France because of it's ancient canals and beautiful architecture. Annecy is a place that ma

ny Americans haven't heard of but all should see!

 


Three-day optional vacation extension...

The French Riviera Mediterranean 3-Day Extension

 Saturday, March 12th - Tuesday, March 15th


 
We are heading to the French Riviera for our  3-day trip extension! The beautiful coast-line and mild Mediterranean climate is reason enough to go. Add to it that the French Riviera is an abundance of history, scenery and riches with miles and miles of picture-perfect Mediterranean coastline.  We will be based in historic Nice, France which is the center of it all as we will easily be able to visit world famous Monte Carlo, Monaco and Cannes, France.

 

This coast-line is often thought of as the playground of the rich

and famous. Well known for its glitz and glamour, it is rivaled by

few other destinations on the globe. France's Mediterranean coast 

is also known for its pristine blue waters, warm weather and

spectacular food. There is a tremendous amount of history on this 

region and much to see and do. We will tour the backstreets of Nice's old town, visit the Rock of Monaco (above photo) and the famous Casinos of Monte Carlo. Meals will be a delight as the food is a tremendous cross section of cultures and everything is local including the fish served straight from the sea!  Addtionally we are just a stones-throw from the famed Provence and Rhone wine regions. Locally grown wines will be readily available at a great price!

 

This "French Connection" of skiing and sightseeing promises to

be one of the best trips ever!  

 

Let me know if you have any questions that I can answer.
