Day 3: Tuesday 22 January | Social

7:50am to 6:00pm - Sella Ronda Ski Day Trip
You can either meet us in Cortina CBD or at Hotel Villa Argentina. Please see meeting times below.

Looping around the mighty Sella massif, this 70km ski experience on the Sella Ronda ski route is truly a one of a kind social event. The loop is designed so that you’ll never ski the same run twice with runs varying from intermediate to advanced. There will be stops for food along the way, however this is not included in the price and we recommend you pack snacks for the day. This event is not recommended for snowboarders or beginner skiers. Dolomiti passes are required to participate.

The Sella Ronda is a full day ski activity accompanied by local Italian Alpine guides where you traverse around a group of mountains called the Sella crossing through many Alpine Italian towns, ascending to beautiful peaks and not a single run is done twice over the day. We begin the day by ascending up the cable car at lagazuoi to enjoy breathtaking views of the Dolomites and will ski around the entire Sella over the course of the day. We will enjoy a few apres ski drinks (at delegates own expense) before returning to Cortina d’Ampezzo.  

Meeting times:
7:50am: Bus will pick people up from Cortina CBD. Please be waiting at Piazza Roma with all ski equipment.
8:15am: Bus will depart Hotel Villa Argentina
6:00pm: Return to Hotel Villa Argentina and Cortina CBD drop off

Cost: $180 per person (includes return private bus transport & guides, does not include meals) 
Age:
8 years old and over

Total ski time: +8 hours (intermediate and advanced skiers only, no snowboarders)

Day 5: Thursday 24 January | Social

Marmolada Ski Day Trip on conference in Cortina with CPE Conferences

7:50am to 6:00pm - Marmolada Ski Day Trip
You can either meet us in Cortina CBD or at Hotel Villa Argentina. Please see meeting times below.

What better way to take in the Dolomiti views from the highest peak than with this excursion. Marmolada sits 3500m above sea level and offers a full 360° view of the spectacular surrounding ranges. Skiers and boarders attending this event are required to be at least an intermediate level and given the thin air, exhaustion is common, so take it easy on the way down. Breaks will be scheduled throughout the day for all participants.

The Marmolada is a full day ski activity accompanied by a local Italian Alpine guide. The activity involves ascending to the top of the Marmolada glacier and skiing down. This tour includes red runs and is recommended for intermediate and above skiers. Snowboarders are able to do this event.

Meeting times:
7:50am: Bus will pick people up from Cortina CBD. Please be waiting at Piazza Roma with all ski equipment.
8:15am: Bus will depart Hotel Villa Argentina
6:00pm: Return to Hotel Villa Argentina and Cortina CBD drop off

Cost: $145 per person (includes return private bus transport & guides, does not include meals)
Ski / Snowboarder level: Intermediate and above

7:00pm - Skidoo then dinner at Rifugio Di Bona
