Maybe you’ve seen your friends rave about their glamorous ski holidays or perhaps your Instagram is full of fabulous ski photos and you just wish you could experience it first-hand. Why aren’t you packing your bags? You may think that it is too late to go now, but in Oetztal there is guaranteed snow until May. So, treat yourself and fly over to one of the most beautiful snowy areas of Austria’s Tyrol region, the Oetztal Valley, to experience luxury on and off the slopes.
Off The Slopes…
Stay at the newly built Oetztal ski apartments by All Suite Resorts. These feature an aparthotel concept, which combines the perks of a hotel with a luxury apartment. You get the freedom and space of an apartment equipped with top-quality appliances and furniture to make you feel at home, and if you want, you can enjoy their hotel facilities, such as restaurant and bar/lounge.
Hint: after a long day of skiing, unwind at the apartment’s spa area (it’s inclusive with your stay!). If you are completely worn out, this article on Of Beauty and Nothingness mentions that you can order your dinner in the restaurant to be delivered by the swimming pool, so that’s exactly what I’d do! The spa centre is inclusive of heated outdoor and indoor pools, three different saunas, various relaxation rooms and bathing ponds. The perfect place to recharge after a day of adventure on the slopes!
On The Slopes…
As this article on My Fashion life says, “whether it is your first-time skiing or you’ve been skiing for years, you’ll never be disappointed with Ötztal.” This region is home to 6 ski areas that offer more than 350 km of slopes! With heaps of snow covering the whole Valley, there are many other winter activities you can try out, if skiing is not your thing, including ice skating, tobogganing, snowshoe hiking, ice climbing and much more.
For the ultimate luxury on the slopes, the Independent recommends booking the Perrier-Jouet experience at the Hochgurgl ski area. This experience allows you to take a few turns inside a gondola cabin while enjoying steak tartare, smoked salmon, cured meats, olives, bread, tomatoes and plenty of champagne.
