VENUE AND ACCOMODATION

The conference is held in the Hotel La Cacciatora, in the town of Alba di Canazei in the Dolomites, Italy. The Dolomites is a World Heritage listed site and rivals any other place in the world for its beauty, diversity in landscape as well as its geological and geomorphological significance.

This conference, with its spectacular setting is the coming together of like-minded surgeons for the exchanging of ideas and expressions in their specialised fields.

SOCIAL ACTIVITIES

Activities during the conference

We have a number of activities to suit all individuals including organized and fully escorted ski groups, beginner ski lessons, walks around the local area, snowshoe walking if requested, a day trip to Bolzano (the home of Ötzi the Ice Man as well as fantastic shopping, cafés and restaurants) and wine tasting (subject to availability of the Sommelier).

Guided ski tours will be run by Mario (Dolomites Ski Tours).

YOGA SESSIONS

Yoga, as well as other exercises can improve your fitness level and benefit you once you put your skis on again. Many professional skiers are now incorporating yoga into their training. They’ve figured out that yoga can improve your strength, flexibility, coordination, and more – all key to skiing.

Well we are lucky to have Christiana Zimmerman volunteering her time to teach us both Meditation and Yoga sessions throughout the week. This will be a positive for both our physical body and our mental state.
