Snow Sessions south America
South America Snow Sessions has been gearing up for the 2006 season with some new additions to the coaching staff and more counselors in order to keep our 4 to 1 camper coach ration. With a weekly cost of about 1300 (7 days) SASS is still the cheaper camp that gives campers more individualized attention, real winter conditions and an incredible cultural experience.
The latest news is that SASS has been placed on the camps list at snowbaord.com. On our profile you will find camp info, updates and some photos from last summer.

July was hot, and August will not be much different - according to the weather man at least! Not to worry, the nights in Kitzbühel are not only lively but also - thanks to the mountains - cool. Not to mention the refreshing mountain lakes. At the moment their clear waters are the most sought-after form of liquid (apart from the occasional schnapps, perhaps).
In August Kitzbühel will be offering its usual rare combination of action for all and the peace and quiet of restful mountain scenery. Theoretically you could dance the night away, then give our mountain guides Madeleine and Engelbert a hard time with your party mood, retire for a dose of après-golf, switch effortlessly to some evening shopping, and start all over again. (Believe it or not, I have tested the theory. All I can say is, don't try it at home! This is really something that is only possible in Kitzbühel!!)
Whatever, have a good time in the most beautiful of all Alpine resorts!
Oktoberfest teams up with golf/spa
Dust off the lederhosen, throw on the dirndl and toast your steins during Vail's Oktoberfest, happening September 8-10 and 15-17, 2006. Even better, you can make a vacation out of it with our His and Hers Package. It's also a great time to find early season deals on ski equipment and clothing!
Get your fill of oom-pah parties, lively activities and traditional German fare. Festivities include bratwurst-eating and keg-decorating contests, yodeling and alpine horn blowing and Bavarian dancing. Book a His and Hers package and get two rounds of golf at the Vail Golf Course, including golf cart, with two spa treatments, plus four nights lodging for only $633*/person.
