    Best Dolomites Experience

    Robert Niles
    10/02/2020
    I’ve just returned from ski safari hosted by Inspired Italy’s owners Louise and Tim Anderton. Louise was our team leader and the finest team leader I have ever had. She found the best places and best skiing every day of our tour. The one day we lost to high wind and blowing snow, she found alternative plans to add interest and knowledge about local culture and history. I don’t think you would find someone more knowledgeable about local history unless they were born there. I am 64 years old and have only been skiing for 4 years, so she took great care to keep me safe and blend me in with our other team members who have had many more years experience. I could not have expected any better from the mountains or the Rifugios Louise had planned. I also could not have expected everything that was included in the price. When the tour was over, I was saddened to part company with Louise and my teammates with whom I had become friends. I could not have imagined a better experience. I highly recommend this safari tour.

    Our best skiing ever....

    Belinda and Stewart Callaway
    16/11/2018
    We have had the pleasure of two totally amazing ski safaris with Inspired Italy. A varied route with stunning landscapes and fast down hill skiing day after day, it can’t be beaten.

    At night we stayed high up in the Dolomites in classic Italian Refugio’s, away from the hassle of other skiers and tourists with just the stars above us and the twinkling lights of a snow groomer in the distance. Accommodation chosen for its stunning position in the mountains & delicious food never disappointed us.

    We have skied Japan, USA, Canada, NZ and nowhere have we had the skiing that this tour provides.

    Dolomites special ski safari with Tim Hudson fulfilled all my expectations. Slickly organised from start to finish. Amazing itinerary covering a large percentage of the Dolomites ski areas.

    Staying on the mountain in Refugio being fed with beautiful local cuisine and drinking local tipples. A sense of achievement at the end of every day. Extra special touches in the helicopter transfer and snowmobile transfer.

    The snow and the weather were amazing and despite a couple of snowy days we managed to accomplish all our targets. Wish I could ski safari every year

    If you are looking for something different from a skiing holiday then this is a must. It was first class from start to finish. We both did the Special Ski Safari last year and Janet has done one before and we will be back again in the future.

    The organisation was excellent as was the accommodation and you can't beat the views day and night. Every day was a new experience and plenty of them. Being up the mountain's when everybody else has gone home is pretty special. The Guides are brilliant. Best bit of advice I can give is GO and do it, you will love it.

    Special Safari

    For sheer pace, breadth and ambition, the Special Ski Safari makes any other on-piste holiday look significantly deficient by comparison. The complete best of the Dolomites distilled - I cannot imagine a more satisfying week's skiing.

    Dolomiti Skiing with THE CLASSIC SKI SAFARI

    Christine Millard
    03/11/2018
    Dolomiti skiing means 12 skiing areas and state-of-the-art lift facilities with a good 1200 km of groomed slopes...and sunny slopes you just can't wait to get your skis gliding over. We have skied the Dolomiti area since 1999, staying for up to 3 months and taking a Super Dolomiti Ski pass which covers in excess of 450 lift facilities. We were always apprehensive of venturing more than 40 kms from our base as we did not know if we would be able to ski back to our base before the lift facilities closed. Then in 2010, we met Tim and Louise from Inspired Italy and they introduced us to their SKI SAFARI. So we put on our backpacks with a couple of changes of clothing, 'saddled-up' on our downhill skis and explored further afield for 6 days and 5 nights.
    We skied in areas we had never been and never the same run twice...
    We skied in small groups, up to 7, so there was minimum waiting for regrouping and more time to ski..
    We skied renowned runs with names like Alberto Tomba, Thoni, The Hidden Valley, and the Marmolada - the majestic glacier nestled at over 3300m offering a thrilling early morning decent on virgin piste....
    We skied thrilling slaloms, following in the ski-tracks of world cup champions on the Gran Risa, Saslong and the Olimpia delle Tofane...
    We enjoyed the comforts of the Rifugios offering Italian cusine and wines while watching scintillating sunsets over magnificent massifs like the Sella, Tofane, Cinque Torre and Civetta.
    We stayed in a different Refugio each night at various altitudes, some with spoiling comforts and others very rustic in the beautiful environment where livestock still graze in the summer and where many of the major battles of World War 1 took place...
    And the skiing - in excess of 8000 vertical meters each day, blue, red or black, all perfectly groomed and waiting for the Ski Safari to shred the groomer tracks before the day skiers appeared.
    We connected the 12 skiing areas by using the Dolomiti lift facilities or the comprehensive bus system or a train or an old fashioned horse tow.
    The Ski Safari is fully escorted with guides. You never know what the next day will bring. The Ski Safari will change your ideas and expectations for your future ski holidays - you will feel as though you have skied in another world and your dreams will be of where The Ski Safari will take you next time.

    Ultimate Ski Holiday

    Sophie
    01/11/2018
    My family and I are lucky enough to have an international ski holiday every year - the Classic Dolomites Ski Safari is our best ski holiday thus far.

    Our group included myself and my brother (24-26yo) and my Dad and his friends (60-75yo). Our abilities are intermediate to advanced and all had an amazing time. With my brother was able to find the steep off-piste slopes, whilst I could enjoy the continuously groomed on piste, and Dad tackled the moguls. We were very impressed by the distance we covered, without ever feeling rushed. It would be impossible to see this much of the Dolomites without a guide.

    I have never experienced such amazing views and weather. Due to European engineering, even though it did not snow over our holiday, the snow machines ensured the slopes were perfect every day.

    The accommodation is beautiful! Skiing with a backpack is no big deal. Food is delicious. Guides are friendly and funny.

    We had such an amazing holiday that my Dad and brother are going again next year. Would highly recommend.

    Fantastic way to ski the Dolomites

    John Cowan
    01/11/2018
    I've done two classic ski safaris and I'm heading back for the advanced in January.

    The Dolomites are on-piste heaven - long runs, huge variety, fast and cruisy skiing. Matched with incredible scenery, good accommodation and expert guiding, this the best way to see and ski the best in the Dolomites.

    Staying in the mountain lodges avoids crowds and morning queues. We love just being able to focus on skiing and enjoying ourselves with someone else making sure we get to where we need to be be!
