SEE IT ON OUR 2020 EUROPEAN SKI TRIP TO
ZERMATT, SWITZERLAND
With extension to MALTA

March 13th-25th, 2020

Florida Ski Council Trip

Your 2020 spring vacation starts in Geneva with a scenic drive through Switzerland to Zermatt 2.5 hours away. Step into views of the Alps just below the Matterhorn. Historical buildings give an air of authenticity surrounded by Swiss charm. Now wait until you see our hotel. The Alex Hotel just might be worth the trip itself. This family-owned hotel may cajole you into staying put in its beautiful eclectic space. Of course, the skiing will be epic…it’s Switzerland and you can ski right into Italy! There are optional activities within Zermatt and surrounding areas. The Gala Party at the Post Hotel promises to be a most unusual venue event. If you want to go, go, go on the slopes and off…you can. If you want to relax in this idyllic setting, get a massage at The Alex then lounge at the pool, you can. You will be happy either way.

But wait; there’s more!! From Zermatt, we fly via Zurich to Malta, an island located 80km south of Sicily. While Malta is one of the smallest countries in the world (208 out of 251), there are countless things to do from visiting the old capital, exploring ancient temples or climb an old fort then see lavish cathedrals or take a ferry to a quaint fishing village with grottos and caves along pristine beaches. A guided ½ day tour is included to acquaint you with the area. Whether you want to explore non-stop or relax along the azure Med sea, Malta offers an abundance of options.

This trip takes you into the snowy mountains of Switzerland and then to a Mediterranean island giving you the best of two different worlds. You’ll experience a diverse array of scenery, culture, food, and activities all thoroughly enjoyable. Just wait and see.
