Fancy a few days break to blow off those cobwebs? How about a four day getaway to Northern Italy with your mates. 

Leave behind the stresses of everyday life, as you ski or board down the majestic Mont Blanc or stunning Monterosa mountain range.

Take your flight on a Thursday afternoon from Gatwick to Turin and you’ll be in the mountains to sample those delicious flavours of the Aosta in time for dinner.

You book the flights, and we’ll organise your trip, minimal hassle for you and maximum enjoyment with your mates. With our knowledge and connections, we will advise the most suitable accommodations to suit your needs.

Zuba ski covers Courmayeur, Cervinia, Champoluc, Gressoney and Alagna Valsesia

An example itinerary for your group would look something like this:

Thursday - day 1 - travel and acclimatise

  • Take an early afternoon flight from London Gatwick.
  • Pick up your transfer from the airport and head directly to your resort.
  • Check in to your hotel or bed and breakfast and freshen up.
  • Why not head into town and check out the local bars and indulge in those Italian flavours. Will it be pizza, pasta, local dishes, burgers, whatever hits the spot.

Friday - day 2 - equip, explore and ski

  • After a hearty breakfast, head to the ski hire shop and pick up your equipment.
  • Head up the mountain and explore the pistes.
  • Sample those mountain restaurants and get stuck in.
  • After some serious piste bashing, head back down the mountain not forgetting to enjoy some apres ski!
  • If you book with Zuba you’ll get access to information all about the resort’s facilities, plus details of bars and restaurants in the resort and on the mountain.
  • Stay connected on the socials for any local event information too.

Saturday - day 3 - discover, dine and delight

  • Meet your mountain guide who will take you on and off piste, weather permitting, finding those hard to reach places. Rely on the expertise of the knowledgeable guide to make the most of your surroundings.
  • Head back to the hotel for rest and relaxation.
  • Push the boat out and go for some finer dining in the evening, after all, it would be rude not to!

Sunday - day 4 - action and wellness

  • Spend the day finessing your style and enjoying your favourite pistes.
  • Enjoy some well deserved wellness either in the hotel or in the resort. Why not indulge in a sports massage?
  • Dine in your hotel and make the most of those cosy spaces. Sample those Italian reds whilst playing cards with your mates and reminiscing over good memories.

Monday - day 5 - head home

  • Check out of your hotel, sit back and relax whilst you are transferred back to the airport to take your flight home.
