Why start again?

Do you remember the days when making those turns came naturally to you? Can you still feel the cold sensation of fresh powder under your skis, when you were the first to set tracks on the slope that morning? Do you recall having lunch with your mates, outside the little hut on top of the mountain in the sun? The great stories you shared and the stunning views.

Even if skiing hasn’t always felt as glorious as these memories, you do miss it, don’t you? Not to worry, in Austria, there is plenty to help you fall in love with skiing all over again. Eschewing the excuses of age, ability, or economy, taking to the slopes again is easier than you might think.

Snow-sure resorts, an unrivalled après-ski scene (and why not some après-spa as well?), authentic hospitality, plenty of ski-in/ski-out properties, English-speaking expert instructors, cosy mountain huts serving up Austrian favourites - come relive the fun of it all and rediscover the joy of skiing.
