WoW Ski Tours
Solo Ski Holidays - For Women
It may seem like a scary concept, but there’s absolutely nothing to stop you from travelling alone. Hitting the button to ‘book’ may feel like a leap of faith, but as our repeat clients would testify, there’s no looking back!
And, as there is no single supplement – you can have a room of your own at no extra cost.
If you’re looking to go skiing independently this winter, but prefer not to be on your own, our Solo Dolomites Ski Holidays provide a truly magical experience. Set in a UNESCO world heritage site, the panoramas of these heavenly mountains will leave you quite breathless. Coupled with the very best of Italian food & local wines, you’ll wonder why you didn’t sign up before.
WHO ARE OUR SOLO SKI HOLIDAYS FOR?
Looking to avoid single supplement charges?
First time solo skier?
Frequent independent traveller?
Partner doesn’t ski?
Skiing companion at a different level?
Regular group can’t make it this year?
Just looking for an excuse for another holiday?
Whether you’re used to travelling alone or simply taking some time out for yourself – the relaxed and friendly atmosphere on all of our solo holidays is geared towards allowing you to be part of the group when it suits and having time on your own when you want to.
In terms of practical organisation, once you’ve decided to join us on a WoW Ski Tour, you’ll be delighted to discover we’re not just a ‘rep’, but more of a companion/organiser/fixer who travels with the group. As your hosts and ski instructors, we’ll personally ensure that everything on your holiday is taken care of. We’re with you from the start of your tour, right through to the end.
Prior to your departure, our Whatsapp group will put you in touch with fellow WoW Skiers, to share tips, travel plans and queries, your transfer taxi will be waiting at a designated point at the airport, we’ll be waiting to meet you at check in at your accommodation. On your first day we accompany you to ski hire and ski passes, all dinner and lunch venues are prebooked by us so you can be ushered to your table. From navigating the perfectly groomed slopes round this vast area, to aperitivo at the end of the day, we will be right by your side with advice, help and encouragement. At dinner too, should you need, we’ll be there to help you order, translate menus and suggest the best food and wine of the local area. Don’t stress though, between skiing and dinner, you’ll have some downtime to reflect on your day and have a well earned rest.
You’ll arrive as a solo skier but by the end of your tour will have made lifelong friendships and will be part of an exclusive group. Many clients return to join the same group of solo skiers each year.
Finding yourself as an independent traveller can be stressful, but our enthusiasm and knowledge means we understand exactly what you want to get out of your singles skiing holiday.
You can just relax and enjoy!
OUR SOLO SKI HOLIDAYS
SOLO HOLIDAYS - A TYPICAL DAY ON A WOW SKI TOUR
You’ll have been collected from the airport and helped to settle into your welcoming comfortable accommodation. You’ve sipped a little Prosecco on arrival and been presented with a delicious dinner before retiring to your private room.
Can I get my own room? Yes, your tour price includes single use of a double room with no single supplement or single rooms when available at your choice of hotel accommodation, always within easy reach of the main pistes.
The sun is up, as it usually is, you’re in the beautiful Dolomites. You’re now ready for your first day’s skiing on your WoW Ski tour…
After a scrummy breakfast in your hotel, we will meet you, usually around 08.30, to take you on our daily ski tour. You’ll either ski direct from your accommodation, or be taken by van to one of the 12 Dolomiti Superski areas for that day’s itinerary. With over 1200Km of pristine corduroy skiing to choose from, you’re spoilt for choice!
Help with Ski Hire & Equipment. We’ll already have made sure you have all the appropriate equipment before we leave the resort and we’ll accompany you to the local hire shop for those of you that require skis, boots or other equipment.
I’m travelling solo – who will I be skiing with? You’ll be with other independent skiers in a small but exclusive group of no more than 8, plus your dedicated ski instructor for the week.
How will I know where I am going? No piste maps required on our tours!
We’ll have done all the planning and assessed the weather and conditions prior to heading out each day. We’ll continue to assess the day as it progresses to ensure your enjoyment and safety.
Unlike some ski tour companies, we do not assign you a different ‘rep’ each day, we assign you a dedicated ski instructor who will be escorting you all day, every day. *excl. free ski day.
We have roughly 20 years of accumulated local knowledge and will mix it up from a well-trodden route to one of our ‘mystery tours’ from any of our list of secret locations. If you’re heading off piste you’ll also have the additional services of our IFMGA guide – whose knowledge of the Dolomites is astounding!
How will I know the best places to stop? We will have pre-selected the best refugio for morning coffee, we’ll already have pre-booked lunch – to avoid any pesky queues. We’ll also advise you on the best spots for those enviable photos, hot chocolate stops, where to go for the most delicious strudel, and even some spectacular loos! – where you don’t even have to clamber downstairs in ski boots, and many more handy hints!
Afternoon aperitivo or hot chocolate. We’ll have already decided on where to stop for that necessary afternoon aperitivo or hot drink in each of the superski areas we visit. All have different strengths to offer: Some offer wonderful views with sun terraces, some are hidden enoteca – wine bars, some serve the best ‘bombardini’ – a very alcoholic hot egg nog, guaranteed to out the tiger in your tank and our favorite hugo – prosecco, elderflower, tonic water, a twist of fresh tangerine and a sprig of mint. Fortunately we’ve tried them all…….or nearly!
Do I dine with the group? Yes. We encourage our guests to dine together to share the day’s experiences. This helps create an empathetic group dynamic.
Our charming accommodation offers 6 nights half board with mouth-watering Italian cuisine, including a special dinner dedicated to local gastronomic goodies and a gala evening. One night is not included in the half board option. We will book a delightful local hostelry to allow you to experience dining out in the village (at the guest's expense).
There will also be a complementary aperitivo evening in our chalet, where you are invited to join us for a glass or two and get that ‘house party vibe’ going, before we return you to the village for your delicious evening meal.
Once back at your hotel you can relax before heading to bed. There is a beautiful swimming pool and wellness centre (tour dependent) and relaxation areas to ease those weary muscles after all those slopes!
Solo. Skiing. WoW!
