Thanks again

Firstly to complement Zuba on a hassle free and engaging service in booking and following up to make sure we could arrive late at the accommodation. Thank you Mike.

Alagna is great and despite the lack of snow, with the help of a local guide we found some challenging skiing and amazing mountain restaurants.

Just to say, we had a great time, despite poor conditions. The hotel was great and we were v well looked after. We enjoyed our days with Maurizio and had a very nice dinner at Montagne di Luce on the Sunday evening.

Thanks again for organising for us.

Dear Zuba Ski Team,

We had a fantastic holiday thank you! The transfers went very smoothly and the return drive was especially comfortable in a great vehicle, with very careful driving - just as I like it!

The hotel was exceptional with no complaints at all. Rooms/food/service all great. We have been to Italy for the last 5 year (2yrs Champoluc at La Rouja and 2 years in La Thuile in great hotels) and in my opinion Ellex was the best yet.

Thank you for all your assistance in this past holiday and hopefully future holidays.

Kind regards,

Katie

Dear Zuba team - Just to say that our stay in Alagna went very well - the staff at the Gentianella were warm, welcoming and very friendly and we had a comfortable and relaxing stay there. The transfers went smoothly, all in all Zuba provided us with a good week in Alagna.. thank you!

Kind regards.

Hi Mike/Ian

Thank you for all your help and advice booking our holiday. We had a fabulous time.

Snow conditions were excellent, huge dump of snow pre arrival and nice sunny days mostly whilst we were there. We had a 3 hour delay on our flight out so didn't get to the resort until late Sunday, which meant we didn't get to sort out skis lift pass lessons etc. however, it turns out that Lucca Vittore is the man to know in Macugnaga, lovely chap, and he sorted all that out for us in half an hour on Monday morning.

The resort was ideal for us as a young family with first time skiers. No worries about losing the kids too!

The Dream Hotel was a very good choice, and Daniella and Marco were fantastic hosts. We loved the fact we could go and enjoy the jacuzzi after a days skiing and Marco would run us up to the slopes in the morning. In the evenings we would go and have a drink with Lucca and Catherine in hotel flora before supper. The resort was quiet as we were there during term time, so if there is a moan ( and it's not!) there was a lack of other kids to play with, but our boys hung out with Daniella's son most evenings.

We loved the area, and the Italians, and really everything went well for us.

Thanks again, I hope that is of help, happy to answer any other questions

Hi Guys,

Our stay in Italy was fantastic and a great success for all of us.

Even the “disabled” was enjoying, though not very mobile in Alagna - no elevator at the hotel and kind of steep hills to climb on crutches

The guided tour was stunning, if maybe over the top for the senior (myself), but we enjoyed the time with Guiseppe who did a fab job and showed quite some patience with us :-)

Thx for all arrangements and support, we would additionally like to thank the entire hotel crew and the driver who all contributed to a very good experience!

Hi Zuba,

We had a great time in Alagna and at Montagna di Luce!

A massive snowfall during the night between Saturday and Sunday (around 1 meter) forced us to leave in a hurry on Sunday morning before the police closed the road.

Please find enclosed pictures of Montagna di Luce the night before and the morning after the snowfall :)

Thanks for excellent service once again.

Thanks.

Said this on 09-02-2015 At 15:17 pm

We had an excellent time. Transfers all worked, hotel was fine (massive portions as you mentioned!) and the ski area was great although I think we only brushed the surface. Our guide was very good as well.

It is definitely on the list for another visit next year so we will be in touch.

Wendy and I are having an awesome time! The Italian people are super friendly. We had some great fresh off piste power skiing with Sergio in AlagnaOur one night at Oresteshutte was great - what a special place.

We are presently at Gressoney and it's been snowing for the past few days, so looking forward to some more great fresh powder lines over the next few days. Once again the accommodation is excellent, as well as the food and service.

Thanks for organising such a great trip.

Dear Ian, Mike and Zuba Ski team!

Thank you for your email. I am pleased to say that we had a great time in Gressoney. The transfer provided by Zuba Ski from Turin airport to our hotel in Gressoney la Trinite went very smoothly indeed. Our driver was waiting for us as we came through arrivals. We had a good journey to the hotel and the driver coped very well with rather snowy conditions on the way up to the resort. And for our return trip, the driver arrived very promptly at the hotel and again we had a good journey back to the airport. Mini bus very comfortable.

So thank you very much for the service you provided! I'm sure I will use Zuba Ski again in the future.

Kind regards,

Sharon

Another Zuba success!

Hi Ian,

Thanks We had a wonderful trip and thought you put a very nice itinerary together for us. It was a nice mix of luxury accommodations/huts...and we like both. We were lucky to have a meter of new snow fall on our arrival day, followed by another 30cm two days later. We really enjoyed our days with Marco....he is top notch. The ski days with him and the hut trip were the highlights of the trip for us. The alps are just spectacular mountains, I am glad to have finally made turns there. The Monterosa region is clearly a special place. I will be happy to recommend Zuba to any friends that are thinking about a European ski trip. Thanks again...this may not be the last you hear of us!

Cheers, Kurt

Mike and Ian,

A note to say thank you to Zuba for excellent organisation throughout. We had two fantastic days with heli and guides, loved the hotel who could not have been friendlier , vey comfortable but modern..everything worked.

First day of heli was very demanding at the end down to St Jaques when Alissandro took a left handed route which involved a tough walk and slide , followed by a very nasty descent through trees , all of which Paulo avoided on the second day by keeping right and taking us down a delightful valley then traverse. Local knowledge! But all part of the experience.

Will certainly recommend you to friends. Regards, Stuart

Michelle

Said this on 11-03-2014 At 05:38 pm

Dear Mike & Ian,

I would just like to say a huge thank you for the smooth arrangements you made for our holiday and most of all for the recommendation of the hotel. We absolutely loved everything about it! The village of Dolonne was adorable and could not have picked a more perfect place. The food was sensational in the hotel, the staff were fabulous and the cherry on top of the mountain was the perfect snow conditions we had :D

We will be looking for another little gem next year so hope you have something equally as good ;)

Dear Ian, Just to say we had a marvellous time in Gressoney with Marco. Endless deep powder, as good as heliskiing at its best for 5 days. Marco his usual charming self finding us fresh tracks again and again, patient with our foibles and falls, and even carrying the old mans skis (me). We are very grateful we were not piste skiing in Grimentz! A big thank you for suggesting the change. Best wishes, Mike

Mike

Said this on 10-02-2014 At 12:03 pm

We had a wonderful break, the logistics via hire car in Italy were excellent to and from the airports,(we actually managed to make our flight just after a puncture on the M25 - no fun).

The Hotel was perfect, beautifully alpine, great spa all with Italian food.

We were lucky the resort was covered in snow, we had a foot while we were there which made visibility tough for ski-ing, but lovely open pistes very underpopulated no doubt due to the older lifts.

The huts all charge sensible prices for coffees and lunches unlike France.

Overall one for anyone's shortlist - thanks Zuba Ski.

Dear Mike and Ian. As you gather, Trina and I had a memorable and great time in Alagna!

The highlight was our 2 days with Sergio, one day under blue skies skiing off-piste down the freeride area back to Alagna and the second on skins up to the Zuba Pass. The location of the Genzianella is fantastic and we were well looked after and were the only guests staying there for 2 nights. We very much hope to be back next year and thank you for all your help and advice, Every best wish, Anne

Mike, we had a great trip. Luiza and family at the accommodation were fantastic - do pass on our thanks. Snow and skiing brilliant (best I've ever experienced). Ski school extraordinary, good for Frank, but not for my older one - but the ski guide for her was amazing. Ski hire straightforward. New year a fantastic experience. My family loved it, and was certainly a lot cheaper all in than many other options of package ski trips eg Esprit/Warner etc. Has made us more likely to do self catering in future. Thanks very much for all your hard work in organising!!

I think we were a walk in the park.... they had 40 Russian Freeride snowboarders arriving on the day we left! Ski guide Marco fantastic day!!!! Tim, Megan, James and myself did this and will do again. Dinner on New Years Eve was amazing! Would never have had such fabulous food /night in the UK organised by Tim!

Zuba Ski provided detailed knowledge of the skiing area, including ski logistics, restaurants, shopping and leisure activities. We felt confident about all aspects of the trip before we left, and were not disappointed when we arrived. Gressoney St Jean was the perfect place for a young family to learn to ski, in the charming unspoilt environment of a traditional mountain italian village. The locals are all very proud of their valley and commercialism is refreshingly absent. Zuba Ski could not have been more informative and helpful, and we could not have had a better introduction to the sport of skiing for our children.

Maybe i can promote you a little here in Norway.

We thoroughly enjoyed our few days in Alagna and would love to return, perhaps in the summer to take advantage of the many wonderful walks into the mountains. I walked up the Val d'Otro on the Thursday afternoon and it was gorgeous. The ultimate Heidi experience! The Genzianella was clean, comfortable and friendly though my proximity to the church clock (second floor on the corner) meant I was woken at rather more regular intervals than I would have wished. All the skiers and boarders had an absolutely brilliant time - and the party at the Rifugio Gugliemina was what you can only describe as unique. I think you can safely say that we had a lovely time.

Malcolm

Said this on 03-08-2012 At 06:05 pm

Ian/Mike Thanks again for organising this trip for us. Everything went like clockwork and we couldn't have had a better time. We had a lovely meal and stay at Scopella so pass on our thanks to Leo and his staff. The Taxis all turned up exactly to schedule and were very accommodating. The Rifugio was superb - we enjoyed our stay there every bit as much as the Gug. Indeed, we are thinking that we may now use that in preference to the Gug. The guides were great. Lunga took us on the Sunday and we skied the Couloir down from Pass de Zube and then down into the Gressoney valley through the larch forests. The weather was inclement for the Monday and the guides re-arranged for Tuesday at no extra cost which was fab. Marco took us down into La Balma and down Lo Canale Grande ( in over a foot of fresh pow!!) Altogether, a great trip and we are already scheming for our return. Thanks again.

We had a great trip with Zuba Ski. Everything worked like clockwork. The accomodation was great but what made the difference was the ability to build so much into one short holiday. We received great advice from Zuba ski who organised guiding, heli skiing and a night in a refuge All aspects of the holiday were as described and everything had been arranged perfectly. Alagna was a beautiful surprise and we will be returning. Although we have met plenty of new friends and contacts we will certainly be using Zuba Ski to organise our trip again. - Thanks.
