- 20th anniversary of the Ian Dempsey
- Bad Hofgastein the destination
The 20th anniversary of the Ian Dempsey ski trip is open for bookings. The trip takes place January 26th 2019 to Bad Hofgastein in Salzburgerland, Austria.
The Topflight Today FM Ski Trip last visited Bad Hofgastein in 2016. The resort offers some of the best wellness facilities in Austria where visitors can restore harmony to body and soul at the Alpentherme spa resort. Alongside the wonderful wellness facilities, the area offers vast and diverse ski opportunities and has been heavily investing in new infrastructure. The new Schlossalmbahn lift which is due to open in December 2018 will more than double passenger capacity from 1400 to 3000 people per hour. The resort of Bad Hofgastein is part of the Gastein ski area, which boasts 200km of world class skiing opportunities.
Tony Collins,Chairman, Topflight said“from a humble start in Andorra at the turn of the millennium in the year 2000, this trip has grown exponentially. On a personal level, it has been wonderful to see the growth and development of the trip year by year. It is hard to believe that it is over 20 years since myself and Ian discussed the possibility of bringing listeners to the slopes. Ian had just joined Today FM at the time and now we are planning how we can make this 20th birthday extra special.It has been heartening to see the forging of many lifelong friendships alongside wonderful memories made down through the years. We look forward to celebrating this big birthday in style on the slopes of Bad Hofgastein in 2019.’Alongside super skiing or boarding by day, the resort will come to life each evening and night with an entertainment programme that will simply be second to none to celebrate the trip turning the big twenty. This includes party nights, quiz nights and the gig not to be missed where the special guest or guests (still top secret – but guaranteed to be special!) will ensure that Bad Hofgastein rocks with a night to remember. Past trips are renowned for the high quality level of entertainment and 2019 will be no different. Previous trips have included the best of the Irish music scene with acts including Picture This, The Coronas, The Saw Doctors, Paddy Casey to name a few. Throughout the week there will be other special après ski events such as the official GAA Puc Fada played in the snow. As it is an extra special birthday year there will be many surprises yet to be revealed. You never know where or when you will find a music session on the slopes! Trip participants will enjoy live sets from the Harleys during the week who are now a regular on the trip.The Big Breakfast on Friday morning will be another highlight of the week where the brilliantly talented and funny Mario Rosenstock will be certain to inject some fun and laughter to the proceedings.
Places are available from Dublin, Cork & Belfast.
