South Tyrol: The place with 300 sunny days a year, the most magical sunrises and sunsets. Definitely a place I’ll never forget and for which I’m grateful to have experienced it together with VisitSouthTyrol.
The Dolomites are one of the most beautiful mountains in the world, this being the reason why they are a part of UNESCO-world heritage. Upon arrival in Bologna (the nearest airport) the taxi of Zallinger was waiting for us to bring us up to the hotel in the mountains. When the path got too snowy a snow-taxi brought us all the way up to the hotel right at the slopes.
Probably the best stay I could wish for for a winter holiday. We had a very nice and warm challet kind of room with two queen beds. One upstairs and one down below.
Perfect when travelling with two kids or when you like to have a bit more space.
It felt so good to be back on my board again, as last winter I didn’t get the chance to go on winter holiday. Therefor I’m very grateful towards VisitSouthTyrol for taking us on this trip. 1120 km of slopes which we clearly coudn’t do all. But I can tell you this, it was by far the most beautiful scenery I’ve ever snowboarded in. We were also extremely lucky with the weather (although they said this is seen as “Normal”). We had sunny and clear blue skies every single day except for one. We decided to go to the spa that day, which was only a one hour drive away. A perfect day of relaxation before our very last moments of snowboarding.
Let’s stop talking now and let the photos speak for itself.
