Lumi Experiences – Nordic Skiing in the Alps

Back in the fall, we featured an article about Lumi Experiences, a company founded by New Moon alum and cross country Olympian Garrott Kuzzy. Lumi Experiences offers cross country ski vacations to some of the world’s renowned destinations and events.

Just in case you’ve been dreaming of a fully-curated Nordic Ski vacation of your own, take a look at some of these amazing photos of Lumi’s trip to the 2019 Nordic World Championships. Caution, skier or not, these pics are normally the stuff of dreams. But they are all, indeed, up close and very real! Look closely and you might recognize a few faces. Enjoy!

Upcoming trips for 2020 include Dresden to the Dolomites and the Best of Bavaria and Tyrol trip, which includes the Oberstdorf World Cup and the Konig Ludwig Lauf Worldloppet. The Best of Bavaria and Tyrol Trip benefits the National Nordic Foundation, an organization that makes sure up-and-coming skiers have the high-quality racing and training opportunities required to be successful. Lumi Experiences has been able to donate over $16,000 to the NNF, supporting athletic excellence in developing US Nordic athletes.

They can even plan custom trips just for you and include the places and events you’ve always wanted to visit. Here’s what New Moon customers Mike and Jane Mandli said about their trip to Tyrol with Lumi Experiences:

“The trip had an exceptionally talented group of trip leaders. It was well-planned and full of fun surprises that enhanced the experience. Sledding was a hoot, and skiing to our hotel afterwards was awesome. I love the Dolomites and the Tyrol. Austrian curling was a blast. First class care and attention to detail made this a trip of a lifetime for us.”  - Jane & Mike Mandli
