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 4th April 2020 and return on Monday 13th April 2020.
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)
• buying lunch/purchases made in a European city on the way home
Your team leader for this holiday is Stephen Jones.

What can you do here?
Schloss Heroldeck is a majestic castle tucked away on the slopes of Austria’s Lake Millstatt. It is owned and run by Calvary Chapel churches and the staff are wonderful. There are several ski areas nearby, but given we travel so late in the season we often ski at the Mölltal Glacier. This is Carinthia's only glacier ski area and provides superb conditions for fantastic days in the high mountains all winter, spring and into early summer.
Schloss Heroldeck is an amazing venue for an SU camp – it has a great meeting room, a prayer room at the top of one of the castle’s turrets, a fantastic dining hall, plenty of lounge rooms for small groups and socialising, and a cellar café selling the most awesome pizza and milkshakes. The castle has dormitory style bedrooms, accommodating between 4 and 10 campers. Each of these rooms has en suite toilet and shower facilities, and there are also additional showers on each floor.
The castle has beautiful gardens with a view of Lake Millstatt. In previous years we have enjoyed some sunny apres ski times sitting on the swings or playing football in the garden. We usually walk to Millstatt village, which is only 15 minutes away, on Saturday for lunch.
