Alpendorf (Austria Skiing)

Single Parent Ski Holiday in the Vast Alpendorf/Wagrain/Flachau Ski Region

We will be staying at the lovely family run 4-star hotel Alpenschlössl at the heart of Alpendorf. Our hotel is ideally located for a single parent ski holiday as it is a mere 2-minute walk from the cable car station, the starting point of the large Alpendorf/Wagrain/Flachau ski carousel. Our hotel has received the HolidayCheck 2016 Award with a 100% recommendation. It is furnished in traditional Alpine style, with a panorama restaurant with view of the surrounding mountains, a beautiful sun terrace, and cosy hotel bar and lounge area to enjoy a drink or two after dinner.

Our single parents can enjoy an indoor pool and spa area with a range of different types of sauna, spa treatments and a relaxation room to unwind after a busy day on the slopes. For our younger guests there is a kids room with a range of toys supervised by a qualified child minder from 3.00 to 9.00 pm to enable our parents to relax while the children are entertained.

All rooms are furnished in traditional Alpine style featuring flat-screen TV, telephone, free Wi-Fi and safety deposit box, and come with an en-suite bathroom with hairdryer, bathrobe and spa basket with towels to be used in the spa and pool area. Breakfast is served in the form of a lavish buffet, while dinner is a 5-course meal with vegetarian options and kids’ menu, using mainly local produce partly sourced from an organic farm nearby.

Skiing/snowboarding: Alpendorf is the starting point of the Alpendorf/Wagrain/Flachau ski carousel with 120 km of blue, red and black pistes for all levels of skiers and boarders. The cable car to connect you to the ski carousel is nearly opposite the hotel and you can ski all the way back to the hotel at the end of your day on the piste. No shuttling required!

For any of you who are new to skiing or want to improve their skills, Austria’s ski schools are renowned for their qualified instructors, who will teach you and/or your children the necessary skills so that you will want to return year after year.

Other activities on offer: We will also be offering other fun winter activities to complement your single parent skiing holiday. Save your energy for a fun toboggan run, enjoy a horse-drawn carriage ride through the picturesque countryside, try out cross-country skiing or snowshoe hikes in the mountains, have fun at an ice-curling competition, or test your ice-skating skills at an ice disco in nearby St Johann. And if you would rather just relax after a day on the slopes, there is the hotel’s pool and spa area to unwind, or an evening out at a thermal spa nearby, complete with adventure pool, wave machine, slides, several saunas and much more.

Single Parents on Holiday - Alpendorf about Image 1Single Parents on Holiday - Alpendorf about Image 2
"The Alpendorf holiday was pure fun from start to finish. The kids were constantly hanging out with their new friends, the adults were always laughing (on the slopes and in the bar) and Sandra and Tennessee ensured that we were all brilliantly looked after. It felt like a real break - which doesn't happen very often! What a wonderful week we had. It's so special as a single parent to feel looked after and the kids just love being part of a tribe. It really was the best holiday we've ever had! Thank you x "
- Annelies, Alexandra (10) & Lucas (8) - Alpendorf ski holiday, February 2017

"Alpendorf proved to be the best week skiing ever!!
Both my children Harry 16 and Sophie-Rose 14 are already asking me to book again for next year. The venue was perfect, beautiful views, fantastic slopes. The hotel felt luxurious and friendly. Sandra's organisation was seamless so that I could really relax and Tennessee's sense of fun and superb skiing ability made the holiday really enjoyable. The other parents and children on the holiday were so friendly, welcoming and fun that it made the whole holiday an overwhelming success. Thank you."

"This was our third SPOH holiday. The hotel was really lovely with a short walk to the gondola which is essential with children on a ski holiday. The rooms were very comfortable and quite spacious with amazing views over the valley. The ski equipment was all ready and organised for us to pick up on the first morning. The group of parents and children were all very friendly and everyone had a fantastic holiday. Despite having a back problem early in the holiday that then prevented me from skiing, my daughter had a great time with the help of her new extended family. This would never have happened if we hadn't gone with SPOH. Thanks to Sandra, Tennessee and all guests for making it another fantastic holiday. Hope to see you all again soon."

"Not being big beach fans, the boys and I ventured to Austria in the summer for the out door life. We all had a great time. The boys learnt how to fish and I met new friends while on some lovely hikes. We enjoyed the whole Single Parent set up so much, that instead of our usual ski trip to Slovakia, we joined the group for the February half term skiing. Fantastic! Great company for us all with a highly recommended ski school, quality ski hire and variety of runs…….We have booked for next year!"
