30 Mar - 08 Apr, Austria , S2 - S6, £599.00
Accompanied travel: Glasgow, Southwaite

On the Austrian Snowsports Holiday we have two main aims: to get closer to God, and to live life to the full. We also happen to believe that you achieve the second of these by doing the first.

This year we depart on Saturday 30 March 2019 and return on Monday 8 April 2019. Travel is by luxury coach from Glasgow via Eurotunnel on the way there, and overnight ferry on the way back.

The cost of the snowsports trip includes travel from Glasgow or Southwaite services, half board accommodation, 5 day ski pass, ski hire, ski instruction and insurance. Instruction at all levels from qualified ski and snowboard leaders on the team.

Campers will need money for the following items (not included in the cost):

  • food during travel (although they may like to take a packed lunch for the outward journey)
  • buying snacks/drinks from the tuck shop on the bus
  • buying snacks/drinks from the cafe at our accommodation in Austria
  • buying lunch on the slopes
  • purchases made on our excursion (evening trip to an Austrian town)

Your team leader for this holiday is Stephen Jones.

What's the location like?

The Sonnenburg Hotel is a stunning property directly on the slopes of the Wetterstein ski area, and only 5-10 minutes walk to the centre of Ehrwald. This will be the first time we have stayed in a hotel, that given the right snow conditions, we could ski back to at the end of the day! Ehrwald is a superb resort offering guaranteed snow (at the Zuspitze glacier) and over 207km of piste split over 9 ski areas.  It is fantastic for skiers and snowboarders of all levels with a total of 74 blue, 55 red and 11 black runs. 

What's inside?

The Sonnenburg Hotel is a recently refurbished hotel accommodating guests mainly in 4 & 6 bedded rooms all with private facilities. The hotel is designed for the needs of UK school aged young people, with a meeting space, TV room (with live Premiership, Championship & Europa League, SPL, rugby & movies), a pool table and table football, new dining room and large recreation room. To ensure that getting out to the slopes is as easy as possible, the hotel also provides a ski room to store equipment. 

What's outside?

Hopefully plenty of snow! Just bring yourself – we’ll provide ski hire, instruction, 5 day ski pass, accommodation, and insurance.
