12 December – The snow is continuing to fall in the Dolomites, there has been over 150cms this week alone and is likely to keep snowing over the weekend. Our guide Anthony has arrived in Campitello and is amazed by the amount snow around the village, there are no doubts about a White Christmas this year.
Meanwhile, long time guide Peter reminded me how the beauty of Italy goes way beyond skiing in the Dolomites. Lucky enough to be living in Florence in the lead up to the season he has been enjoying the soaring pink and green marble Duomo, the Boboli Gardens and is convinced there is a lifetime of art at the Uffizzi not to mention the Accadamia with its David and other works. Peter has been adding some semi regular comments to our Dolomites Ski Tours Facebook group page so please join and enjoy his often less than serious take on life in Italy and skiing the Dolomites. Oh, and he also mentioned that this economic downtown has some advantages – the sales have already started prior to Christmas, there isn’t a better time to find a new pair of Italian shoes or ski jacket!!
