Blue Ridge Ski Council Eurofest.  The largest ski resort in Switzerland and the highest city in Europe, Davos encompasses five separate ski areas spread out on both sides of the valley, any one of which would be considered big by American standards. With descents from almost 9,000 feet, Davos offers an endless variety of terrain.  The Parsenn cograil bahn, right out of Davos Dorf, has increased speed and capacity to give access to the largest ski domain in the region. In addition, this multifaceted winter sports complex offers miles of cross-country trails, tobogganing, sleigh rides and skating on Europe’s largest outdoor rink.

Pre-Trip to Lisbon, Portugal - 4 nights

Our trip includes 4 nights at the 4-star Mundial Hotel in the heart of historic Lisbon, walking distance to all the historic sights.  There is a Welcome Dinner on the day of arrival, daily breakfast buffet, and a 4 hour city tour of Lisbon with a local English-speaking guide.  Roundtrip airfare (see details below) and airport transfers are included.
