    An entertaining, inspirational and challenging week in beautiful wilderness.What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?Standing in a deserted stretch of ski track with nobody else around, the wind was howling, the sky was blue and I was panting. I felt alive!What did you think of your group leader?Both group leaders, Mary and Ilse, were patient and knew exactly when to push us and when to hold back, providing just the right levels of instruction. Do you have any advice for potential travellers?Bring a flask so you can have a hot drink at lunchtime. Haribo were a welcome treat too. Have a crack at it. Cross-country skiing is not scary or impossible. It's surprisingly easy to pick up after day one. Don't get frustrated, just try to smile and laugh at yourself.Is there anything else you would like to add?Every once in a while it's good to challenge yourself, do something different and learn a new skill. If you feel like you're stuck in a rut, sign up for this trip and shake things up. You'll come home feeling a whole lot better, your lungs will feel bigger and you'll have a glow in your rosy cheeks.

    Kvitavatn is an excellent centre for all levels of snow sports. You are well looked affer, meals are excellent and well organised with helpful staff and a good standard of accomodation. What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?In a week where the off track snow was so unpredictable and difficult I would offer the day the group did the Blue 23 trip. The weather was brilliant. It was an area new to me and provided new views and vistas.  What did you think of your group leader?We had two leaders, Ilse and Mary who swapped about the groups. They were excellent. They instructed, lead the groups and maintained our spirits. They laid on films, lectures and quizs in the evening based on a theme of skiing.Do you have any advice for potential travellers?The bus takes 3+ hours from the airport to Kvitavatn. You may wish to have a snack to hand to tide you over until dinner on arrival. The ski hire is excellent and not expensive. It saves hassle on aeroplanes and at airports.  Is there anything else you would like to add?Kvitavatn has a considerable variety of terrain so you are not going to get bored and caters for all levels of skiing. And all this with the comfort of a fixed centre.
