Escorted Mountain Ski Safari
The escorted ski safari is an excellent way to travel and to enjoy your vacation without the work and worries. The tour guide is a professional driver, skier and expert in the different ski area’s activities, facilities and history. The group travels comfortably in a 15-passenger van or 4x4 with a maximum of 7 clients where all luggage is stored inside the van. At the ski resorts the guide will introduce the group to the different ski area, slopes and runs. Good skiers will find those gem tree runs, or hard-to-find chutes. For the less adventurous, we find the bestgroomed runs that day. There is something about sharing a passion for skiing and the mountains while exploring the Best Ski Areas in North America.
