A taster session; but it's great to have chance to do it at the wrong time of xfar. Taster sessions of summer glacial skiing in the Dolomites are going to form part of the varied sports on offer during an action packed week-long activities holiday to be launched by new company Club Sportif next year. Apart from the skiing, you could try waterskiing, rafting, sailing, canoeing windsurfing, para-ascending or tennis. FOR SALE/WANTED ADS ON 494 Holidays Adverts Rock/Film Your Money
