KEEPING NON-SKIERS HAPPY IN THE AUSTRIAN ALPS
Incredible as it may sound to snow junkies, not every person heading to a ski resort will want to ski or snowboard. Sometimes people are injured, other times they feign it to reside in the après ski bars. But having a wide of ‘non-skier’ activities helps group harmony and adds to the options of those wanting a break from the skiing or snowboarding.
The range of attractions off the snow varies greatly with resort. Some activities are high-octane pursuits such as paragliding, ice driving or Olympic bobsled, whilst others are more sedate such as winter walks or day spas. Having a range of activities off the snow can really transform the trip into an inclusive event, rather than a short ski trip.
THE BEST NON-SKI RESORTS IN AUSTRIA
Innsbruck is a tremendous location for non-skiers with a historic centre full of cultural, dining and shopping options.
As attractive as they come, Kitzbühel centre is incredible whilst there are a wide range of adrenalin activities as well.
Lech is an absolute joy be in. Walks, spa days, shopping and dining are all highlights in this truly magical location.
The waterfront town of Zell am See offers fantastic options in the resort, in the mountains or in the air.
The biggest resort in the region, Mayrhofen offers great non-ski options in the valley, in the air and on the mountain.
Action is on offer in Sölden and the mountains above, whilst the best spa in the region is just a short distance north.
HIGH-OCTANE ADRENALIN THROUGH TO CULTURE & RELAXATION
The list of challenging, non-skier activities being offered by ski resorts seems to grow by the year. Zip wires, paragliding, ballooning and scenic flights take clients into the air for new perspective on the local geology, whilst motor sports include skidoos, ice cart and high performance 4 wheel drives which can be taken on specialist off-road trails.
Activities need not test bravery, there are a number of Alpine activities that are of a more sedate pace such as winter walks, snow-shoeing, horse drawn carriage rides or gastronomy tours. Spa days are a favourite for many with wonderful bubbling hot tubs located beneath towering peaks and surrounded by snow. Shopping in the Alps is also a special pleasure!
