the last of the ski bums alps trip

Ok admit it. You have always wanted to pretend you were one. Or maybe you were once and want to re-live that spirit one last time. This trip is for you.

The ultimate last of the ski bums ski trip is a no-frills, no holds bared ski trip to - wherever the snow falls. Because after all, that’s the only way to do it. It’s all about road trips, cheap hotels and good times. But the skiing, yeah the skiing will be stuff you only have dreamt about until now.

The program is flexible and has no fixed agenda other than following the storm clouds and powder skiing. I think this ski trip may be the best way yet to utilise my knowledge of where and when to go skiing in the Alps. 

And It all gets under way when you picked up from the Munich airport...

We will then try and follow a more or less westerly heading across the Alps.

 

Some perks :

Custom transportation from the airport to the ski lifts and back

Video of your trip

Use of the latest demo skis 

One stop shopping, sit back, relax and enjoy the ride

• Transportation and lodging in winterized RV’s

Trip Highlights
This trip is a perhaps a once in a lifetime opportunity to for skiers to experience something unique. This isn’t a fancy week of fluff in a posh hotel. The only fluff guests will be experiencing is the white powder blowing over their heads. It’s all about doing something extra-ordinary.
