ON SNOW EXPERIENCE
During this trip, you’ll spend three days with instructors, and three days skiing with other Ski Club members of a similar ski profile who have also booked onto the Freshtracks trip. This trip is aimed at Early Intermediate (Blue) and Intermediate (Red) skiers, but if you are unsure of your ski level, please see our Ski Profile Page. At the end of the week, you will receive an updated grading from your Ski Club Rep.
You will be staying in the 4* Johannesbad Palace hotel, which offers an incredible range of spa facilities. This includes an indoor pool with amazing views, a herbal sauna, steam baths and more. After dinner you can relax by the open fire in the stylish bar, with astounding views of the surroundings. Breakfast and dinners are served on a buffet basis, with a huge range of international options to keep you fuelled.
This holiday includes both your flights and transfers. The flights are with British Airways departing from London Gatwick South Terminal. Ski carriage is payable at the airport only and cannot be pre-booked. Your Ski Club Rep will coordinate the coach transfer from Salzburg airport, so please look out for them in the main arrivals hall; they will be wearing their blue Ski Club jacket. The transfer will take roughly one and a half hours.
If these arrangements are not convenient you may be eligible to organise your own travel and receive a nominal discount from the holiday cost. If you can find alternative flights that coincide with our flight times then you may be able to meet the group at Salzburg airport and take our transfers to resort. Please contact the Freshtracks office on 020 8410 2022 in order to discuss this further.
Set in sunny, spacious surroundings, the resort of Bad Hofgastein is a quiet spa town in the heart of the Ski Amade region. In the pedestrianised centre there are plenty of shops and restaurants and the resort is pleasant to wander around after a long day of skiing. An excellent bus service provides access to all the available ski regions. For more information on Bad Hofgastein, please visit the Bad Hofgastein Resort Guide.
If you need to hire equipment, we recommend the Intersport Bad Hofgastein. This is located 10 minutes from the hotel, and next to the main ski lift. They also offer a range of in resort discounts.
