Cross-country Skiing Dobbiaco

Ski ing with Super Woman!

5
Exodus employ some really great people to lead their trips , but those of us who booked a week in Dobbiaco this February were in for a real treat! For one week only Exodus had managed to get Superwoman....and we were the lucky ones! Karen Messenger is a young Canadian who spends her summers working in a National Park at home and her winters pursuing her 'Tour de Fun' competing in XC country long distance races around the world , known by the wonderful name of Loppets ! For the first two days Karen gave us great ski tips in the mornings and lovely skiing routes in the afternoon keeping her true identity secret, until all was revealed at an evening power point.....we were all very inspired and very impressed when she explained that the 'Fun' bit her Tour de Fun was that she dressed as Superwoman for her races....in some races everyone was whacky and she completely fitted in...in other more earnest gatherings there was some amazement , but , she said, the outfit worked wonders for her. So our holiday highlight came on the going home day when we we all went to cheer her as she entered the local Winter Olympics stadium , dressed in red and gold coming in as 26th out of 167 international women skiers , including professional teams , from all over the world, completing the 32 k classic style race in under two hours . And then she did it all again the next day this time with be the skating technique and achieving 7th out of the field of 29 other mad women who tackled both days! What an inspiration and what fun! We will be back ! Hopefully seeing Karen again !

Another good week in Dobbiaco

Another good week in Dobbiaco. Worries about snow conditions were unnecessary. Most trails were open, although not all had cut tracks. This is one advantage of a major x-c skiing centre - they were busy making artificial snow to improve the tracks used in the marathon that was run shortly before this week, and the World Cup races that were due in a few weeks. Plenty of scope for a grade 3 group.

Cross-country skiing January 2016

Yet another great week at Dobbiaco. Tracks were all based on artificial snow, but there was enough of the real stuff to top them up and make everything look pretty. The work done to create tracks was most impressive, and there were plenty to keep us occupied all week. As a regular, it's great to recognised and welcomed back to the Tschurtschenthaler hotel, which fed us as well as ever.

Dobbiaco 21/02/2015 x/c ski

Superb conditions and leadership by Anne, Alex, and Lorraine at what I think is your best southern European x/c ski base. Exodus is the only UK Company which does properly-led daylong x/c ski - unlike your competitors such as Ramblers, which treat x/c as downhill skiing (which it definitely isn't!) It's a great shame, therefore, that Exodus does not offer more southern European venues for x/c ski, having drastically reduced these following acquisition of Waymark I hear this complaint again and again from fellow Exodus x/c skiers. And we all fear that exodus will allow this activity to wither on the vine if it is not careful. X/c ski is superb outdoor activity which should be promoted as the ideal winter fitness activity - it also has some Royal patronage - Pippa Middleton did an x/c ski race last year! One other thing - you specify that grade 1 and 2 are suitable for people with little or no experience. But you should make it clear that a level of fitness similar to regular hill walking or cycling is necessary. I have seen so many people have a ruined experience of x/c ski simply because they don't do sufficient regular exercise, and that causes such difficulties for the Leaders, and, indeed, the other suitably fit participants who have to hang back or stop all the time so that these people can catch up!

Dobbiaco cross-country skiing and more

Good, reliable skiing. Even when snow is thin there's always something, and this season conditions were more than adequate - I could finally reach the Cortina cross-country centre (I've been waiting since 1988 to get there).

Dobiacco February

South Tyrol and the Dolomites are a must see, Mahler was here and so was the 1914-18 war. Hotel excellent and Guides struck just the right tone. The number of guests returning is testament to the quality of the Exodus experience here. Go see it before it is spoiled by mass tourism.

Dobbiaco cross country skiing

This resort is excellent for beginners and improvers. The integrated and impressive public transport system ,with our local pass,gave us access to a good variety of terrain,within stunning mountain settings. Having grade 1 and 2 running the same week together gave me confidence I would get training and challenges I could cope with. Older people who are reasonably fit from taking good walks should not be afraid to try this sport. The new spa at the Turchsentaler Hotel has been fitted out to a high standard and is a delightful place to easy away aches and pains and relax before dinner.
