SKI ITALY IN 2020

This Information is for “For Yours Eyes Only”

Ski like 007! That’s Bond…..James Bond

You don’t have to be a secret agent to join the Oklahoma City Ski Club in 2020 for our premier fly trip to the very location where the ski scenes from the James Bond movie “For Your Eyes Only” were filmed!  We will spend 8 days and 7 nights in beautiful Cortina d’Ampezzo skiing, snowboarding or just being “tourists”.  Even if you don’t ski or snowboard you will have plenty to do and see.  Included in our itinerary and trip costs for Cortina is seven breakfasts and five dinners during our stay!  For those that joined us in Innsbruck in March of 2019 you will find the town of Cortina to be a little smaller, but full of fun things to do.  If a James Bond movie was filmed there you know the scenery will be awesome!  Additionally we have set up an optional side trip after Cortina to Venice.  Instead of heading back to the airport in Munich those that choose to add on the Venice trip will ride a private bus from Cortina to Venice and then board a water taxi to take us along the waterways of Venice to our hotel that is extremely close to the San Marco Basilica in the heart of Venice.  From there you will have three additional days and nights to explore Venice and the surrounding area.  Whether by boat or foot (there are no cars in Venice) your days will be full of delight. This is a once in a lifetime trip…….are you ready?
