Schladming (Austria Skiing)
SOLO SKI HOLIDAY:4-Star Ski Holiday in Famous Schladming
New for 2017 – our solo ski holiday! Are you a single parent with children too old to join you on holiday? Or do the dates not work out with your children’s school holidays this year, but you don’t want to miss out on that skiing trip you look forward to so much? Does your partner not ski, but you’d love to go on a skiing holiday? Whether you are single or not, ski holidays are much more fun in the company of like-minded adults. On our adult only ski holiday you will benefit from the services of our excellent Austrian ski guide, who will not only guide you on piste and teach you a few new skills here and there, but also stay with the group at the hotel, organise group dinners, ski hire and other fun winter and evening activities.
For this solo holiday we will be staying at our long-established and popular 4-star Hotel Mitterhofer, a stone’s throw away from the West Planai cable car station. It offers all the comforts our guests will need after a day’s skiing or snowboarding, with 4-star accommodation in spacious and comfortable double rooms – reserved for single occupancy, of course – featuring cable TV, telephone, safety deposit box, balcony and ensuite bathroom.
After an active day on the slopes, you can stop for an après-ski drink or relax in the hotel’s sauna and spa area, before indulging in a delicious 4-course dinner at our hotel. For anyone fancying a night out, Schladming with its cafés, bars, shops and restaurants is only a 10-minute stroll away.
Skiing/snowboarding: There are several cable car stations in Schladming which will take you up to the famous ski area of the award-winning 4-Mountains Ski Circuit, so you can enjoy a huge choice of blue, red and black runs without ever having to take off your skis! The ski area consists of 45 cable cars and lifts linking 115 kilometres of pistes – an absolute dream for skiers and snowboarders of all levels.
Austria offers some of the best facilities in the world for both beginners and advanced skiers. Its ski schools are renowned for their qualified instructors. You can book group or private lessons if you are a beginner or want to improve your skills. To get our solo skiers ready for the slopes, we will take them to the ski/snowboard hire shop by the cable car station, where their pre-booked equipment will be waiting for you.
Other Activities on Offer: There are also many other ways to enjoy the beautiful Alpine landscape, of course: Explore by foot and admire the panoramic views, get on your cross-country skis and explore 20 km of cross country tracks, or treat yourself to a ride through wonderful scenery in a horse-drawn carriage. But be sure to save some energy for our moon-lit toboggan evening!
Schladming first appeared in historical records in 1180, and started to become a popular ski resort in the late 19th century. Situated in north-western Styria and surrounded by the spectacular mountain scenery of the Dachstein-Tauern region, the mountain village is a well-known winter sports resort nowadays. It is famous for its 4-Mountains Ski Circuit (the four mountains in question being Hauser Kaibling, Planai, Hochwurzen and Reiteralm) and forms part of Austria’s biggest ski region, Ski Amadé, which has runs stretching over 860 km and an FIS race course. Schladming also hosted the Ski World Championship in 2013.
Schladming is a small working town with a friendly and authentically Austrian atmosphere. It still has a very ‘villagey’ feel to it. The old town district is home to cafés, shops, restaurants and bars, as well as the medieval town portal and fortifications dating back to the 14th century, the old town hall, town museum, 16th century churches and Prince August von Saxe-Coburg Gotha’s former hunting lodge.
There is plenty of après-ski fun to be had around the Planai station in Schladming, and the town offers a wide range of shops and evening entertainment. Perfect for our first solo holiday!
