This way, your next skiing holiday will become an unforgettable experience

Anticipation is known to be the best feeling of joy of all. I don't live in Ski amadé myself but, I will soon be on my way there again. The prospect of the next skiing holiday or a ski weekend provides an extra dose of motivation.

Anticipation is known to be the best feeling of joy of all. I don't live in Ski amadé myself but, I will soon be on my way there again. The prospect of the next skiing holiday or a ski weekend provides an extra dose of motivation. Just taking a moment to think of the fresh powder snow, a cosy break in one of the huts, the tasty food and the impressive mountain scenery... and everything becomes a lot easier again.

Thus, you should quickly plan your next trip to the mountains in order to have a concrete goal to focus on! If you don't have your planning routine down to a T yet, then here are a few tips for you. This will turn your next skiing holiday into an unforgettable experience.

Fun on the slopes for big and small

One of the most crucial questions is undoubtedly the choice of ski area. Ski amadé has something for everyone - 5 regions offer skiing enjoyment with an unbelievable 760 km of slopes. As this is not a high-alpine ski area, you will find both child-friendly and sporty slopes everywhere. Each of the five regions also has its own personal charm.

The Salzburger Sportwelt is particularly family friendly. For the youngest skiers there are plenty of opportunities to have fun on the adventure mountains such as the Geisterberg St. Johann, Wagraini's Grafenberg or Monte Popolo in Eben. When it comes to enjoyment, then you are in the right place at the 4-mountain ski area around the Schladminger Planai and the Grossarl Valley. You will find the perfect combination of ski and spa in the Gastein Valley, where you can relax your tired legs from skiing in the warm, healing water. Those who love tradition and customs will find what they are looking for in the Hochkönig region, e.g. in the idyllic mountain village of Maria Alm.

The right accommodation

The type of accommodation also needs to be carefully considered - would I like a luxurious hotel, a holiday apartment, a small family hotel, an inn or a bed and breakfast? What kind of board do I want?

The great variety of the region is not only reflected on the slopes of Ski amadé, each type of accommodation has its own special charm. In addition, you will always find great and inexpensive packages and arrangements. If you need assistance in finding the perfect accommodation for your next holiday, you can make a preselection in the holiday configurator on the Ski amadé website and receive tailor-made offers.

To buy or to rent your ski equipment?

In the run-up to the skiing holiday, there is one main question about ski equipment that should be clarified. Do I have my own skis including ski boots and poles?

If you do, please remember to put your skis in for a service so that your first run is not ruined by a pair of blunt skis. If not, all Ski amadé ski resorts offer the possibility to rent high quality equipment! The advantage here is that you are always able to fall back on new and optimally prepared equipment.

Preparation is half the battle

In addition to the organisational preparations, do not forget about your own physical fitness. The body needs a certain amount of time to adjust to the strain – without the proper warm-up the risk of injury increases enormously. Strengthened muscles facilitate correct posture, prevent falls and protect joints and tendons. Therefore, it is best to start training a few weeks before your holiday, which you can easily do from the comfort of your own home.

Don't you want to have an unforgettable skiing holiday now too? Then start planning right now and look forward to the winter days!
