Jolly Clinics: Ski & Tourism in the heart of Northern Italy

LuzzLuzz Posts: 485 Open or 55K Rated Skier
Ballers!

Over the years, we have had skiers from all over the world coming to Jolly Ski in San Gervasio, Italy. A big reason for taking the trip was the skiing of course, but also to travel and check out what the area has to offer in terms of art, food, and leisure.

This year, my sister and I decided to take charge of both aspects and provide skiers with an all-inclusive package.






The idea is pretty straightforward. Skiers will take two sets every morning with yours truly providing both technical and mental coaching on the art of the six buoys. Then, after a nice local lunch, we will head out and, over the week, visit places like Verona, Mantova, Lake Iseo, Lake Garda, and Brescia. These are not going to be the typical tourist-trap-like places, but true and authentic experiences, from entering small-batch wineries, to admiring some of the most astonishing architecture and art that Italy has to offer, to visit some of its most treasured lakes.

The first clinic will take place June 3rd to June 7th, with another one in the making towards end of July or early August.

Importantly, these clinics are not just for skiers. We happily accept non-skiing guest! With the exception of the morning skiing sets, these guests will enjoy all the benefits that come with the clinic (lodging, meals, winery tours, bike rentals, museum tickets, etc.).

If you are interested and want more info & details, please shoot us an email or send me a PM here on BOS.

    I’m interested, I wanted to ski at your place since Genadi came there but life and money issues prevented me from doing so. I will send you a mail thanks!

    I have been to this site twice in the last few years and it is a first class ski site. Great people and great skiing. This is a great opportunity to see some awesome sites as well as ski in a great site. Luzz will take you to some of the best places in Italy and you will have your own personal tour guide. Not to mention the incredible food you'll eat. Considering everything you get to do and see, this is a great deal. - Keith Albritton (Lake 38)

    This looks really cool. I could probably talk my family into something like this. My son and I ski and my wife and daughter don't.

    Hey ballers, just want to echo what a lot of people have already said about this opportunity. Skiing aside, this is an incredible area to visit. I have been lucky enough to visit Matteo's site on a few different occasions. This past summer, I was able to spend 10 days skiing and visiting the area. Matteo and I turned buoys all morning at his perfect site and then we mainly spent our time eating meats and cheeses at the best local spots. Top notch skiing, food, and people. If you are considering this opportunity, I highly recommend it. Looking forward to heading back over the 4th of July for his annual pro event.

    Hey Ballers,
    Matteo and I decided to organize this tour last summer when we realized there was a lot of interest from skiers visiting Jolly Ski to explore local areas of interest. We understood that many skiers also love to get out of the water to enjoy cities, food, shopping, nature, and arts. Of course the core focus of the clinic will be on water skiing, but how about getting professional coaching in the morning and enjoy some tourism at the afternoon? The answer to that question is the Jolly Clinic!
    Our region has so much potential in terms of tourism! You can taste typical and tasty food, drink a really good wine, visit some historical sites (also from Roman time!), get excited in front of art and, of course, breathe some fresh oxygen on mountains or natural lakes. All of these opportunities are only one hour drive away from Jolly Ski! That’s why I love so much the place where I live and why our staff decided to built the Jolly Ski School in San Gervasio Bresciano 15 years ago. I highly recommend this opportunity (obviously :D) to ski hard and receive some technical tips with Matteo, as well as enjoying some tourism and fun with the two of us. We're going to have a lot of fun! :)

    This sounds awesome! Wife and I went to Italy this past December for 12 days and on plane ride home we decided we are definitely going back to Italy. It has been a weekly topic of the amazing food we had, sounds awesome to get insight on local places to tour and nothing better than skiing

    Hey Ballers,

    A couple of spots are still available. We are also offering a skiing-only package without the tourism and accommodation part. Feel free to DM if you are interested. Should be a great week!

    I rarely post anything, but would like to say that my fiancée and i toured northern Italy a few years ago and found jolly ski with Matteo and his team. He directed us on the fantastic sights that he is proposing for his tour. Likewise we had sets in the morning and then had in effect a whole new day exploring the incredible sights of this beautiful part of the world in the afternoon and evening. The coaching is world class and you are made to feel completely at home, as is the Italian way. If you are in 2 minds whether to sign up, go, you won’t even forget it.

    @ManicMike had a great time on his trip, he had nothing but praise when he returned, by his account the skiing was sensational and areas visited were outstanding and not spoilt by tourists in big numbers, he told me that you get to see the real Italy and he experienced many sights that ticked all the boxes.
    The Real Deal !

    Stoked that you have so much interest this year. If anyone is on the fence don't miss out, it's a really superb combination of skiing, tourism, and a great group of people. We hope to get back again.

    Ballers,

    Just addressing a few points you guys asked me via DM:

    Can I come just to ski with you without the tourist part?
    Not during the first two weeks of June. The clinics are a one-package deal with everything included. If you want to come ski with me at Jolly Ski at any other time, absolutely.

    Are we going to be at the lake most of the day?
    Nope. The max we will be at the lake are the days in which we have two sets, and that will be 9a - 12:30p. The rest of the day is meals, activities, happy hours, etc.

    Any spots left for June 8th - 12th?
    We have one spot left for that week We only have 2 spots left for June 1st - 5th.
