Trins & the Three Valleys
What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?
What did you think of your group leader?
Our guide Bob was an excellent tour guide and ski instructor who coped admirably with the challenging and unseasonable snow conditions. He was a real resource of helpful information whether he was teaching ski technique, helping us decipher the lunch menu or making suggestions for the free day. I would say though, there were times I found Bob somewhat officious but this may have been due to having to manage such a large group.
Do you have any advice for potential travellers?
The hotel is comfortably warm so there is no need to wear sweaters or layers in the evenings. Also, if you are a light sleeper you may find the light or noise from the street bothersome if you've been allocated a road side room.
Is there anything else you would like to add?
My only disappointment with this trip was the village of Trins itself. It is quite small, consisting of just one through road with a few shops and businesses either side, and rather lacking in any real character. There is nothing to do in Trins apart from using the facilities at the hotel, namely the bar and sauna. There are more interesting towns and villages nearby but local transport is limited so exploring elsewhere is best left for the free day. So in spite of the enjoyable skiing this is not somewhere I would be tempted to visit again.
