These Dolomites are stunning and the timing we've had with fresh snow during the week has been crazy good.
Kids skiing like legends over the kilometres of trails we cover each day. It helps a huge amount that we got hooked up with a couple of skiers who have skied here for 30 years (65-70 year olds) who know everything and everywhere to go - consummate amateur guides and hosts who enjoy the kids and ski at our speed (well, we have to keep up with them!!). They even cruise through the kids jump parks with us. They ski all day and living the dream, something to aim for in a few years time for us. We've covered places we would never had go to without a good deal of map reading and confusion all round!! The Lagazoui cable car a crazy highlight, plus Gigi was stoked to ski the Val Gardena world cup downhill ski run today - certainly not at the speeds the athletes travel at! But the main feature of it all here has been the views from all the passes and peaks we've reached.
One day to go and we'll hit one more new area before aiming for some favourite spots before a scenic drive out to Venice on Saturday and a late flight to London town!!
