🛩 General Travel & Ski Insurance

Every ski season, one or two unlucky guests have to cancel due to unforeseen circumstances.

 

We, therefore, make it a fundamental requirement of booking an Inspired ITALY Dolomites Ski Safari that you have adequate general travel insurance to cover such things as cancellation, medical, and travel claims and in paying your deposit invoice you acknowledge this requirement and confirm that you have general travel insurance.

 

☎️ Your Smart Phone & Data Roaming

 

☎️ Make sure that you have a data package for the EU/Italy.

 

☎️ IMPORTANT: YOU MUST ACTIVATE DATA ROAMING BEFORE YOU LEAVE YOUR HOME.

🟢 Download WhatsApp and here’s why…

 

We use WhatsApp to communicate with our guests and to provide you with important real-time information.

Using WhatsApp eliminates the need for printed information and is a small step to reducing our carbon footprint, and helps communication.

You can delete the app after your Safari if you so wish and/or leave the group.

 

🔵 Download Dolomites Superski App

🪖 Ski Helmet's & the Law

 

As of 1 January 2022, helmets are mandatory for under-18s on the slopes for all winter sports including skiing, snowboarding, telemark, freestyle, and tobogganing.

Adults are strongly recommended to wear a helmet.

 

🍷 Alcohol: Know the Rules

 

As of 1 January 2022, the rules regarding alcohol are the same for driving and skiing.

The blood alcohol content limit for skiers is 0.5‰ BAC.

Skiing while under the influence of drugs is also prohibited.

 

🎒 Packing Your Back-Pack

 

If this is your first Inspired ITALY Dolomites Ski Safari and you're not used to skiing with a backpack, you're probably a little anxious.

Well, let's just say that it's understandable and that 100 people do it every season.

Here's the secret .... CLICK HERE

 

🍕 Food Intolerance

 

Let us know if you have any food intolerances and we'll do our very best t guide and support you!

🎿 Check your Equipment

 

If you’re bringing your own equipment - ski, boots, helmet, etc -  get it checked (and serviced) well before you travel!

 

If you haven't travelled internationally since Covid or maybe you haven't travelled to Italy, it is totally understandable to feel a little anxious.

You can be reassured that our guests are finding that life is back to normal so far as Covid is concerned and life on the ski slopes is pretty

In the end, all of these trips were uneventful and frankly, pretty straightforward.

You might even say that the Covid restrictions are a bit of an anticlimax! No one seems to want to see anything other than the fact that you have a valid vaccination certificate and you're wearing a mask. Having your passenger locator form handy and your negative antigen test to hand is important but honestly, I don't think that mine was ever actually checked.

Do not misunderstand, you must have all the paperwork.

But if you're feeling anxious, that is OK. Just take your time and do one thing at a time.

 

Most importantly the skiing in the Dolomites is currently exceptional!
