Single Parent Ski Holiday in Austria

Our superior 4-star family hotel, the Jägerwirt in the small ski region Turrach in Austria, is what’s known as a Kinderhotel – a family hotel designed with the needs of the young ones in mind at all times – located on the southern banks of a beautiful Alpine lake and surrounded by pine forests. With one lift within a short walking distance of our hotel and the nursery slope and ski hire shop on the other side of the lake, you are never far from the slopes.

Being a Kinderhotel, the hotel is very child-friendly and offers a kids club that’s open 10 hours a day, every day. The hotel’s rooms are spacious and lovingly furnished in traditional Alpine style and come with an ensuite bathroom with bathrobes and hairdryer, radio, TV, telephone, minibar and safe deposit box. Most rooms have a balcony and overlook the majestic waters of Lake Turrach itself.

Our hotel has superior facilities, including an indoor pool complete with paddling pool and slide for the kids, a heated outdoor pool, modern fitness room and large spa area with whirlpool, infrared cabin, Finnish and herbal saunas, steam room and solarium. Your kids will never forgive you if you don’t let them onto the giant slide spiralling down the hotel staircase from the kids club on the third floor. The kids club is open 7 days a week to children from the age of 2, and has its own climbing wall and numerous games and toys to choose from. There’s a games area in the basement for older children with table football, a pool table and computer games, as well as table tennis and a flat screen TV for watching the latest blockbusters.

Skiing/Snowboarding: Our hotel is just 5 minutes’ walk from several lifts, as well as the ski school, ski hire shop and traditional huts where you can meet up for lunch or a glass of mulled wine after a day on the slopes. Austria offers some of the best skiing in the world, and its ski schools are renowned for their qualified instructors with the sporting and people skills necessary to teach your children how to really enjoy winter sports. And if your little ones are still a bit too young or don’t want to ski just yet, then they will be looked after by professional childminders in the hotel’s own kids club which takes children from the age of 2.

Other activities on offer: You don’t have to be a skier or snowboarder to enjoy a winter holiday! There are many other winter sports activities on offer in Turrach, including the Nocky Flitzer toboggan run, snow shoe hiking and cross country skiing.

We will also be organising a traditional Alpine raclette meal in a nearby chalet one evening. There’ll also be live music at the hotel and night skiing on a floodlit piste. And for any of you who still have the energy after all that, there’s even a modern fitness room at the hotel where you can work out.

Turrach is situated in the Nock Mountains in the western section of the Gurktaler Alps. Some 1,800 metres above sea level, the village is on an Alpine pass straddling the border between the Austrian provinces of Styria and Carinthia. Due to its height and location, the region was only settled in the 17th century, when mining started below the Turracher Höhe. Towns and villages did not start developing until tourism emerged in the second half of the 20th century. Today Turrach is a popular family resort, with 13 lifts and 38 km of pistes suited for family skiing.

Turrach is an area of outstanding natural beauty, the focal point of which is Lake Turrach. Our hotel is located directly beside the lake, and enjoys spectacular views both of the waters and the surrounding mountains. Huge efforts are being made to maintain the vast diversity of the local flora and fauna of the Turracher Höhe by setting up landscape conservation areas and ensuring tourism areas and facilities are not allowed to encroach upon the Alpine habitat.

"2nd skiing holiday with my daughter and a very happy customer indeed. Sandra and Tennessee make a great team. Sandra is a great host and nothing is too much trouble for her. Best testimony, towards the end of the week Ella said "mummy if I had to choose a 2nd mummy it'd be Sandra". She is great with both kids and adults. Looking forward to next year already. Thank you SPOH"
- Beany & Ella (11) (Turrach skiing, April 2016)
"The holiday was an ideal choice for my son's first ski holiday - we enjoyed skiing in the morning and then taking advantage of the lovely hotel in the afternoon. The kids' club and the slide from the second floor to the ground floor were a particular hit!"
- Amy & Gabriel (3) (Turrach skiing, April 2016)
"Having never been on a group holiday of this type before, I hesitated to book this, but was so glad I did! We had such a great time, met plenty of new friends and were so well looked after by Sandra and Tennessee."
- Laura & Georgia (6) (Turrach skiing, April 2016)
"I had a fantastic time on holiday with Single Parents on Holiday. It was the first time I had ventured abroad with my 2 children (aged 5 and 7) and it proved to be a fantastic holiday for all of us. The oldest learned to ski – skiing down the mountain together was a memory I will hold onto for life, and the youngest learnt to swim! Both the children had lots of fun with their new friends and I enjoyed having other adults to talk to. Would really recommend it – all the organisation is taken care of… all you need to do is turn up. A real break."
- Jaki, Samuel (7) & Jamie (5) (Turrach winter sports holiday, Easter 2011)
"An excellent holiday hosted by Sandra and Andrea – one of the best I’ve had. Skiing all morning, spa all afternoon and such fabulous company. The trip was also memorable for my daughter. Not only did she become transfixed on the hotel’s helter skelter slide, she was able to feel totally normal being with so many other children whose parents had split up."
- Jess & Roxie (8) (Turrach winter sports holiday, Easter 2011)
"Last minute decision to book Turrach and proved to be an excellent decision. SPoH were very helpful and answered all my questions prior to booking. Sandra & Andrea were excellent hosts throughout the holiday and cannot fault the holiday itself. I will definitely book a lot earlier next time!"
- Kowkchee & Neve (12) (Turrach winter sports holiday, Easter 2011)
"Just a quick note to say thank you for a WONDERFUL holiday. Oscar and I had a fantastic time. Thank you for looking after us so well!"
- Ruth & Oscar (Turrach skiing Feb 07)
