CROSS-COUNTRY SKIING: TRINS & THE THREE VALLEYS

If you are a doubting 'down-hiller' thinking this maybe a bit tame for you - you're in for a surprise!

CROSS-COUNTRY SKIING: TRINS & THE THREE VALLEYS

Cross country ski-ing was a revelation. Out in the hushed countryside, following wonderful empty tracks through pine forests, beside streams, across bridges, surrounded on all sides by those Alps.  No-one for miles; no queues for lifts; no-one to mow you down.  Wonderful!

CROSS-COUNTRY SKIING: TRINS & THE THREE VALLEYS

A great introduction to cross country skiing. Bob is an excellent tour leader, instructor, organiser, waiter, fixer of zips etc. Basically he is there all the time and will help you with anything. Ski area is great despite the fact that it was minus 25 when we started out on the first day.

CROSS-COUNTRY SKIING: TRINS & THE THREE VALLEYS

This was a wonderful holiday. After a short transfer we arrived at the hotel where we were treated to a splendid four course meal, this continued every night! From the first day to the last we were skiing in incredibly beautiful scenery with spectacular views of the mountains and sometimes of the valley below when we were up in the mountains above the clouds. It was a lovely mix of recreational skiing with useful technique thrown in to help us improve. The hotel was fantastic, a sauna at the end of the day was much appreciated. All of our group (solo departures) gelled very quickly and I had a great time meeting lovely new people and sharing a lot of laughter and cheer with them.

CROSS-COUNTRY SKIING: TRINS & THE THREE VALLEYS

This was my first time to do a full week of cross country skiing and it was brilliant for a beginner, with loads of different tracks to try. And the multi grade meant my much more experienced friend could go with the Grade 2s and we could get back together at the end of the day, which worked really well.

Very well organised on the ground. Leader provided both thorough nuts and bolts information but was generally informative about the area which was bonus.

CROSS-COUNTRY SKIING: TRINS & THE THREE VALLEYS

We loved this holiday, as soon as we got back we just wanted to go back again. We went from not being able to put skis on to skiing 10 miles on the last day. The hotel is lovely with a fantastic bar and everything is reasonably priced (ski hire 8 euro/day). Plenty of euros left over for apres ski. The skiing is in lots of different areas and makes use of local transport though if you book as an independent, Bob will help sort out the buses for you.

CROSS-COUNTRY SKIING: TRINS & THE THREE VALLEYS

This was my first cross-country skiing trip so I went in a Grade 1 group. By the end of the week we managed to ski around 15km in a day, and also successfully tackled some fairly challenging routes at Maria Waldrast. I thoroughly enjoyed the week.

CROSS-COUNTRY SKIING: TRINS & THE THREE VALLEYS

I had never skied before and was pleasantly surprised that I was shown how to put the skies on and given sufficient training by the instructor Barbara (superwoman/wonderwoman) to ski alongside other beginners who had skied before.  Barbara was always helpful and on hand to advise us on all things as they cropped up.  The warm ups before activities were useful in getting us warm therefore avoiding any sprains (thank you Barbara). As well as the skiing lunch in the various cafés/restaurants were superb (gave me something to look forward to each morning).  The food was of excellent quality and reasonably priced.  If you wanted to budget you could spend as little as 3 to 5 Euros on lunch (i like my food so it was nice to refuel ready for the afternoon skiing).  The hotel food was equally wonderful and the bar inexpensive compared to a pub in the UK. Would I go again, YES, I miss it already!!!

CROSS-COUNTRY SKIING: TRINS & THE THREE VALLEYS

We had been warned the week before departure that nature was not going to be very kind to us for our week, but in the end we were delighted to enjoy a full six days of excellent skiing from Trins. It was great to return there after our first trip as complete novices in 2004, especially as "Uncle" Bob (Mason) was there to welcome us back.
