Happy New Year! With the holidays behind us and winter in full swing it’s the perfect time to plan a 2019 ski getaway. If you’re a travel girl who loves skiing or snowboarding then you should consider joining our We Are Travel Girls Austrian Alps Ski Retreat! During this an amazing week in the snow you will indulge in spa treatments, unlimited yoga classes, gourmet dining, après-ski parties, and of course excellent skiing – all from your luxury ski-in / ski-out eco accommodations in the breathtaking Austrian Alps! All skill levels welcome! To inspire you to join us on what will surely be a trip of a lifetime, here are 11 reasons to book your place on the We Are Travel Girls Austrian Alps Ski Getaway!
1) ECO LUXURY LODGING
Your ski-in ski-out accommodations for our Austrian Alps Ski Retreat will be Hotel Forsthofalm. This hotel is truly a destination in itself offering everything you could want or need on a luxury, ski getaway. Situated on the slopes at Saalbach, one of the top ski resorts in Austria, you’ll find a Hotel Forsthofalm, a magical, eco hotel made of timber and glass. Jagged, snow-covered mountains create a surreal backdrop for this little family owned, eco hotel, and all the rooms here have sweeping mountain and ski slope views.

2) AUSTRIA IS AWESOME
Austria is an amazing country and what better way to experience it than a week in the beautiful Austrian Alps! There are so many reasons why I love Austria. Austria is gorgeous country. Austria is safe. Austria is affordable. The food is excellent. The people are very kind and welcoming, and the love to have a good time! Austrians are also very forward thinking about sustainability. In Austria you will find more eco hotels, sustainably built homes, electric cars and solar power charging stations. It would be amazing if more countries would follow their lead! Austria is also easy to reach from everywhere in Europe.
3) EPIC SPRING SKIING CONDITIONS
The Skicircus Saalbach is one of the biggest ski areas in the Austrian Alps with 167 miles of slopes, accessed by 70 lifts. It has one of the most sophisticated lift systems in Austria, and is one of the most diverse and best ski areas in the Alps offering a plethora of runs perfect for beginner, intermediate, and expert skiers. I personally tested the spring skiing conditions at the end of March and the snow coverage is excellent! The Skicircus is also scattered with fun après-ski restaurants and bars where you can stop for lunch or cocktails with an amazing view of the Alps.
4) APRES-SKI PARTIES
You have to experience après-ski in Europe at least once in your life and the Austrian Alps is the ultimate place to do it! Between March 15th – 30th the Skicircus Saalbach hosts White Pearl Mountain Days with live music and DJs performing at different venues around the mountain. During our Austrian Alps Ski Retreat we will be doing two après-ski lunch parties at White Pearl Mountain Days. I can’t think of anything much better than sun, cocktails, music, and dancing in the snow with a fun group of women!
5) GOURMET DINING
If you enjoy gourmet dining then this getaway is for you! Your Austrian Alps Ski Retreat price includes a delicious breakfast buffet daily with fresh-baked breads, a dozen choices of organic granola, nuts, fresh fruit, seeds and organic yogurt as well as made to order eggs, omelets and crepes. Each afternoon from 3-5pm tea, coffee and snacks will be available and every evening you will enjoy a delicious five course gourmet meal. Hotel Forsthofalm prides itself on having only the best fresh, organic local ingredients and offers excellent meat, vegetarian and vegan menus. I personally tried each menu option and all of them are superb! They also have an excellent wine list and cocktail menu.
6) LUXURY SPA TIME
During our Austrian Alps Ski Retreat there will be plenty of relaxation time so you can unwind and take advantage of the amazing rooftop swimming pool and the gorgeous spa and relaxation areas at Hotel Forsthofalm. The sauna and steam rooms have beautiful views of the Alps and the chic lounge areas are perfect for reading, napping and enjoying peaceful wilderness views. Each ski retreat guest will also receive a complimentary spa treatment to help you relax even further into your week-long, luxury getaway!
7) SKI WITH AN INSTRUCTOR
If you’ve been following my travel adventures for a while you probably know that I use to be a professional ski & snowboard instructor. I have been snowboarding for 20+ years and have worked as an instructor at Northstar Resort in Lake Tahoe and Big Bear Resort in Southern CA as well as teaching private lessons at top resorts around the world. I will be on hand during our group ski sessions to give ski and snowboard tips to anyone who wants them!
8) DAILY YOGA & FITNESS CLASSES
In addition to skiing or snowboarding during our week-long ski retreat there will also be free daily yoga classed offered, as well as a unique mountain fitness program. Hotel Forsthofalm also has a state of the art gym overlooking the slopes and a rooftop swimming pool with beautiful mountain views. If one of our new years resolutions is to get in better shape, our Austrian Alps Ski Retreat is the perfect place to start!
