March 3-14, 2023
The Dolomiti Superski is a ski area in Italy. Created in 1974, it is spread over an area of about 3,000 kilometers in
the Triveneto region of Italy, and includes most of the winter ski slopes of the Dolomites. Comprising 12 ski resorts and
a total of 1,246 km of slopes, it is the largest ski area in the world. It regularly hosts World Cup alpine skiing and snowboarding
races. It offers 450 ski lifts and 1,246 kilometers of slopes, about half of which are directly connected to each other, and
all of which can be used with a single ski pass. About 1160 kilometers of slopes (97%) are covered by snowmaking and skiability
is guaranteed from December to April even without snowfall. It reaches an altitude of 3,269 meters in the Arabba/Marmolada
area. It is located in the Dolomite mountains, which were declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2009.
Selva Val Gardena is the highest village in Val Gardena. It's located at the heart of a beautiful natural landscape,
a picturesque valley surrounded by the Dolomite mountain ranges which have been declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Due
to its location, Selva Val Gardena is a favourite holiday destination for active holiday–goers. Tourism is one of the
main industries in Selva. Countless hotels, guesthouses, restaurants and ski schools pepper the location. As one of the access
points to the Sellaronda, during the winter season Selva Val Gardena is also visited by tourists wanting to complete the Sella
circuit on their skis.

The 4 star Hotel Oswald is the perfect place for an unforgettable holiday in Val Gardena! It is situated in the center of
Selva at 1536 m altitude, surrounded by the Dolomites, which have been listed as a UNESCO World Heritage. Connecting gondola

and, snow level permitted, you can ski back to the hotel at the end of the day. Enjoy the hotel's spa, which includes a hot
tub, sauna, and steam bath. Your room includes a balcony so you can kick back and enjoy the late-afternoon passeggiata.
OUR TRIP EXTENSION - INNSBRUCK, AUSTRIA
Normally our trip extension requires a lot of bus travel, lugging all our luggage (including ski equipment) in and out of
airports, and then a long flight. Not this year.
Our bus route between the Zurich Airport and Selva Val Gardena will take us through the high alpine city of Innsbruck, Austria,
a twice selected Olympic site (1964 and 1976). Rather than ski, this time we'll experience the abundance of sightseeing opportunities
that the city affords. Stroll through the medieval city center, explore the palace of the Hapsburg rulers, shop on the famous
Maria Theresa Strassa, enjoy a day trip to the beautiful "Sound of Music" city of Salzburg, visit the Swarovski Crystal World,
or take a ride up the Nordkette Cable Car to the top of the Hafelekar, Innsbruck's highest mountain at 7,657 feet. The city
spreads out below you. For the adventurous, you can even take a ride on the Olympic Bobsled Run, guided by a member of the
Austrian Olympic team.
Our hotel for our 3 night stay will be the Hotel Innsbruck, situated along the Inn River, just steps from the gates of the
