Your Single Parent Ski Holiday in Mayrhofen:

Mayrhofen in Austria’s famous Ziller Valley is one of the most famous ski regions in Europe. Slopes reaching an altitude of 2,500 m offer great conditions for a single parent ski holiday at Easter. Mayrhofen’s three mountains, Ahorn, Penken and Eggalm, offer a total of 139 km of pistes and 45 modern lifts, with something for all levels of ability: from challenging black runs, including the Harikiri piste on Penken – the steepest piste in Austria – to the more leisurely blue and red runs on Ahorn, which is home to the famous White Lounge, a combination of igloo bar and chill-out lounge. The impressive Penken snow park with 8 different park areas and the Hintertux glacier, where you can ski not just at Easter but all year round, are an experience in their own right.

If you’re new to skiing or want to improve your skills, Austria’s ski schools are renowned for their qualified instructors, who will teach you and your children the skills you need to return year after year. More information for anyone new to single parent holidays can be found here: Our Single Parent Ski Holidays.

Below is a selection of holiday reviews from our 2018 single parent ski holidays in Austria's famous Mayrhofen:

"A fantastic holiday with everything organised brilliantly to ensure a stress-free and fun experience"
- Richard &Henry (14) - single parent ski holiday in Mayrhofen, April 2018
"This was my first trip away with Single Parents on Holidays so needless to say I was a little apprehensive before meeting everyone. However, I had nothing to worry about. The hosts were incredibly warm and welcoming; the other guests made me feel at home from the get-go; all of the things that mattered organised (so all I needed to do was turn up - bliss!) and the most important thing is that my son absolutely loved it and now wants me to book a summer trip. I could recommend these holidays more! "
- Dixie & Sonny (8) - single parent ski holiday in Mayrhofen, April 2018
"Mayrhofen provides a great family skiing experience. There is a good range of slopes taking learners from gentle to more challenging terrain, and a few tougher ones to keep the speed demons happy. Also the direction of the pistes ensures there's always somewhere good to ski even when the sun is doing its best to melt the snow. The children had an amazing time making new freinds and catching up with old ones, while I had the time to enjoy a great week with a welcoming and wonderfully diverse group of people. Thank you SPOH for making this possible."
- Elise, Sebastian (10) & Imogen (7) - single parent ski holiday in Mayrhofen, April 2018
"SPOH has made me feel so much happier about being a single parent. Meeting other people in my situation and having time to relax and enjoy my child is worth so much. It's such a great social experience for the children too. "
- Emilie & Charlie (7) - single parent ski holiday in Mayrhofen, April 2018
"Great fun and everything you need is organised!"
- Barry & Jasmine (7) - single parent ski holiday in Mayrhofen, April 2018
"The ski school in Mayrhofen was absolutely brilliant. Being situated at the top of the cable car it really felt like my son was properly in the mountains with me even though he was just at the early stages of learning. The end of week ski races and medal ceremony were such an occasion and it was lovely to share that with all the other SPOH parents all cheering on our children together. "
- Di & Jayden (5) - single parent ski holiday in Mayrhofen, April 2018
"Thank you SPOH for our third fantastic ski holiday! Such a fun group, organised so well by Sandra and Jacob who really went the extra mile to ensure everyone had a really special holiday. Already planning next year!"
- Laura & Georgia (8) - single parent ski holiday in Mayrhofen, April 2018
"Another year and another winning holiday with SPOH. Great hotel and skiing week with old friends and new and as always my personal and kids favourite week of the year. Many thanks to Sandra and Tennessee for an outstanding week and looking after us as such great hosts."
- Mark, Francesca (15) and Dominic (12) - single parent ski holiday in Mayrhofen, February 2018
"The SPOH skiing holidays are always such fun with the right mix of organisation and free time, they just make the holiday go without a hitch."
- Ruth & Sophie-Rose (15) - single parent ski holiday in Mayrhofen, February 2018
"It couldn't be any better! The kids and I had an absolutely brilliant time. Great company, lovely organisation, very smooth and warm and everything is made so easy by Sandra. The best holiday we've had, thank you."
- Annelies, Lexie (11) & Lucas (9) - single parent ski holiday in Mayrhofen, February 2018
"We went to Austria with Single Parents on Holiday for the first time this half term and I would really recommend it. Sandra was fantastic at helping me choose the right holiday for us and was very honest and open about the different types of people who would be there. I chose this one as I wanted a mix of mums and dads as this was important for my children, who lost their dad 2 years ago. At first it was a little hard trying to get to know everyone, as there were a number who had been on holiday together before, but as the week went on, we started to get to know everyone more. Sandra and Tennessee were very good at mixing with everyone and ensuring that no one was left out. I personally really enjoyed meeting a variety of different people, different ages and backgrounds and the dinners in the evening were really fun. They organised a great tobogganing evening, which the kids loved. The hotel was excellent and very Austrian which was lovely. The staff were very helpful and it was very clean. The pool and sauna facilities were very good. We really enjoyed being in the beautiful town of Mayrhofen and it was lovely walking through the town after a day's skiing. The skiing itself was excellent with lots of great runs and we were fortunate to have lots of snow. We have made some really good friends and had lots of fun. We will definitely book again. Thank you for a great holiday! "
- Charlotte, Ellen (11) & Flynn (9) - single parent ski holiday in Mayrhofen, February 2018
