VBT Bicycling and Walking Vacations announced three new cross-country ski vacations that include the Dolomites (Italy and Austria), the Alps (Slovenia, Italy, and Austria), and the Canadian Rockies (Banff and behind).
“This is the perfect way for VBT to offer a terrific outdoor activity, spectacular scenery, and local trip leaders who are thrilled to share their knowledge and experience with travelers,” said VBT President Gregg Marston.
“The activity level is yours to choose—from easy skiing loops to moderate and every level in between. We’ve included some delightful and really enjoyable après-ski features, as well. In other words, it’s more fun than a school snow day,” Marston said. “I love cross-country skiing and it doesn’t require athletic prowess—it’s safe and easy and so enjoyable. There’s nothing like the fresh, brisk winter air in your lungs, the trail and the mountains spread out before you, and a nice drink and warm fire back at the lodge afterward.”
On all cross-country skiing vacations, VBT provides free use of all the skiing equipment a traveler would need—skis, boots, and poles—with a choice of skate skis, classic skis, or waxless skis, depending on the traveler’s level of proficiency. Since there will be a variety of daily trail options, travelers can pace themselves as they wish.
