ON SNOW EXPERIENCE
Arabba’s location at the foot of the Marmolada glacier makes it a great base for an off piste week. During the six days with mountain guides, you’ll explore the extensive range of off piste terrain that the area has to offer using the piste network to take you further and reach new areas. You will be skiing in groups due to ski standard, if you are unsure please have a look at our Ski Profile Page on the website to determine what level you are at – this trip is aimed at Advanced (Purple) and Expert (Gold) off piste skiers.
Your base will be the 3* Hotel Malita in the village of Arabba - the perfect spot from which to explore this fabulous ski area. You’ll be staying 7 night’s half board in twin share accommodation. The hotel itself is warm and welcoming. The Cassan family have owned the hotel since the 60s when it was a small guest house and value tradition and hospitality, and intend to balance this tradition with modernity.
This holiday includes both your flights and transfers. The flights are with British Airways departing from London Gatwick’s South Terminal.
