Ski in Austria & See Isreal and Jordan! Contact us with questions!

 

 

Hey Skiers and Boarders!

I am beyond excited to announce my 2019 ski trip!  It will check off a major bucket list item for me and hopefully many of you!  We are headed back to a group favorite, Soelden, Austria for skiing with a four day extension option to Israel and an addtional option to extend your vacation to Jordan!!

Soelden is one of Europe's top resorts and the group had an absolute blast when we were there ten years ago. Beautiful village, huge ski mountain, tons of snow and is in the top eight of the world's best apres ski!  


Israel has been suggested to me many times over the years and 2019 is the year! We will be visiting all of the highlights of Jerusalem and Tel Aviv during our four night extension.  You will also have the option to stay on for two more days in Jordan.There you will experience one of the great wonders of the world, the ancient city of Petra and spend a day & night in the desert of Wadi Rum!

SOELDEN, AUSTRIA
January 25th - February 2nd
Soelden, Austria has it all and is easily one of Europe's top ski villages. It has a beautiful village center, top notch skiing and snow, authentic mountain restaurants and throbbing apres ski and nightlife that will let us live up to our trip motto of “Never let skiing get in the way of a good ski trip!" The group had a total blast when we were there ten years ago!

ISRAEL EXTENSION 
February 2nd - February 6th
Israel needs little introduction and on our four day Israel extension we will visit visiting Tel Aviv, Jerusalem, take a dip in the Dead Sea,  see some of the world's oldest churches,  gondola up to the fortress of Masada, check out ancient Roman ruins and party it up in Tel Aviv on Saturday night.  We will soak up the culture of Israel and all that Israel has to offer.  
Few places on earth stir up passion the way that Israel does: the breathtaking beauty of its hills and valleys, the eerie stillness of the Dead Sea and the ancient walls and pathways of Jerusalem. The call of the quiet prayers of Orthodox Jews at the Western Wall reflect how the religious devotion of the Muslims, Christians and Jews who live here runs through every facet of life.

We will experience much of the culture, food and sights that Israel has to offer!
 
JORDAN EXTENSION
February 6th - 8th
If you have the opportunity to extend your vacation after seeing Israel then don't miss seeing two of the great wonders of the world, Petra and Wadi Rum.  

The ancient city of Petra is one of the New Seven wonders of the worldand was once a thriving trading center dating back to 400 B.C. Carved directly into vibrant red, white, pink, and sandstone cliff faces, the prehistoric Jordanian city of Petra was "lost" to the Western world for hundreds of years.

Wadi Rum (Valley of the Moon) desert is second only to Petra as the main attraction to Jordan.  Wadi Rum is known as one of the most unique and spectacular deserts in the world with its red sand and rock, giving it an outer-worldly feel to it. So much so that Hollywood movies, Star Wars, The Martian, Lawrence of Arabia, and the Last Days on Mars all were filmed here.  We will be spending the night in the middle of "Mars" with our local Bedouin guides which are true men of the desert.  Spending the day and night in Wadi Rum will be a once in a lifetime experience and give us an insight on how the Bedouin's lived hundreds of years ago!
