Lets Go Skiing in Austria in 2014

Ski Zurs
About the ski trip:
Zürs is a small village situated on a high valley in the mountains of the Arlberg, in the west of Austria, at an altitude of 1,720m. Zürs has a reputation for good late season snow, and over the years that we have been skiing there we have not been disappointed.
The Arlberg ski pass includes Zürs, Lech and all of the resorts in the St. Anton area. It boasts 260 kilometers of groomed slopes, serviced by 85 modern ski lifts and cable-cars, which open up a tremendous variety of skiing.  We have found that there is plenty to keep skiers of all abilities happy and occupied. And there is a wonderful range of off-piste skiing available in fresh snow.

Hotel Erzberg 

Hotel ErzbergHotel Erzberg is a traditional, comfortable and stylish hotel, owned and run by Barbara Schneider and her daughter Sabrina. It has a great location, with the village centre and the closest lift only 50 meters away. When there is good snow you are able to ski right back to the ski room door! All 25 rooms have private bath /shower, WC, hairdryer, satellite TV and safe. Most have a balcony. There are five rooms that take a family of four. The bar and lounge make for fun "après ski", and the sauna, steam room and relaxation area, with infra red therapy cabin, and a possible massage, are wonderful to help ease away your aches and pains. Skis and boots are stored in a heated boot room.

The larger resort of Lech, with greater choice of shopping, restaurants, ice rink and tobogganrun, is only 4 kilometers away, serviced by a frequent bus, which is included in your ski pass. The town of St. Anton, for shopping and a different scene for "après ski", is easily reached by bus or taxi.

  1. Skiing has to be one of the most active, mainstream family holidays going.
