My fiancee and I had promised ourselves we'd go skiing for years, but by March we usually snap & go somewhere hot. This year, we booked so far in advance we couldn't wriggle free & therefore actually got to stick to the original plan. So glad we did! This was probably the best holiday we've ever had. Out all day, excellent skiing (first time!) & returning 'home' to the Alpin-Resort Reiterhof in the afternoons for a well deserved spa session, really made the trip & saved our legs & wind-burnt skin with all the honey-sauna treatments (epic!) Sitting in the roof-top jacuzzi one evening catching snow flakes with our tongues (in a blizzard!) was definitely a highlight of the trip.
We booked on a fully inclusive basis for a week & were blown away by the quality of the service & food. I was expecting piles of cheap, but plentiful pasta, but every single morsel was lovingly crafted from the freshest ingredients & truly I don't think it would have been humanly possible to say no to any of the courses. Despite burning 5000+ calories on the slopes each day, unrepentently, we must have taken in at least 50 000!
The staff are excellent, fun, nothing was an issue & without being cloying, really made us feel at home. It was also handy having the 'short cut' of the bunny school slopes to get back home from the mountains (almost to your front door - handy!) - close to everything, but also lovely & quiet off the main drag - tho' the nearby church bells went ballistic when the new Pope was announced! ;o)
We stayed in March 2013, travelling as a couple & were first-time skiiers - ask for 'Sam' at the Snow Academy - he's excellent & will forever be the 'voice in my head' ski-wise ;o)
I want to go back!!!
