Reposting a blog from New Moon Ski and Bike Shop’s weekly newsletter.

Looking for inspiration for your next ski trip?

Check out Lumi Experiences Cross Country Ski Vacations. Lumi Experiences was founded by former New Moon staffer and Olympian Garrott Kuzzy. Garrott currently calls Innsbruck, Austria home and offers a number of cross country ski trips to the alps. Last winter, skiers on Lumi trips got to ski in the Dolomitenlauf Worldloppet event, cheer on the US Ski Team at the World Cup in Seefeld and ski in the Swiss Engadin Worldloppet.

On the Engadin trip, guests skied in the 50th anniversary of the Engadin Worldloppet in St Moritz, Switzerland, plus many other trails in the week before the event.

The trips are not only about racing. Trips, such as this one to the Toblach in the Italian Dolomites, feature recreational skiing through some of the most scenic villages in the Alps.
