Emily Visits Austria with Inghams
anyone can go skiing no matter what age they are...
Once we arrived Innsbruck we stopped at “Kuhtai”—a beautiful little resort only about 30mins from the airport...
This was my first ever experience of skiing. So, I was a little bit nervous about going because I am not the most athletic person but once I arrived I realized that anyone can go skiing no matter what age they are. The ski schools out there are amazing and within a couple of hours of being on the slopes it's surprising how much you can pick up.
Once we arrived Innsbruck we stopped at a resort called “Kuhtai”—a beautiful little resort only about 30mins from the airport, perfect for families. We then made our way to Solden which is where we stayed for 3 nights.
The next day we collected our ski gear and checked into our ski school and then had about 4 hours of ski lessons which was a lot of fun. Then for lunch we headed right up to the top of the mountains where we had a lovely meal and then headed back to our chalet to relax before we went out in the evening.
The next day we headed over to a resort called “Obergurgl” where we all did a couple of hours skiing. This resort is a lot smaller than “Solden” but is a lovely little resort and can be reached by public bus. After our afternoon at “ Obergurgl” we then headed back to “Solden” where we had a lovely evening meal in our chalet and then headed out for a couple of drinks.
The following day we had our final breakfast and then made our way back to Innsbruck airport to get our flight home.
Handy Tips for First Timers
⭐️ I would have a couple of lessons on a dry ski slope before you go to learn the basics.
⭐️ Make sure you take your thermals!
⭐️ The food in Austria is amazing and not expensive either.
⭐️ Solden is where scenes from the James Bond film “Spectre” were filmed.
⭐️ The lift pass was so helpful, it is definitely worth purchasing.
