We ask that you bring your own bathing shoes or flip-flops from home to help rid the mountains of disposable slippers in all hotels.
They are usually used very little and end up in the trash after you leave. If you do not have any or you forgot, we always have an emergency pair at the reception for you (for a small environmental cost).
If your suitcase is already full, don’t forget, like most of Austria, our sauna area is a nude area, so you don’t need to bring bathing clothes. A sauna towel is also available in the hotel.
These items can stay at home:
- facial tissues
- shower gel / shampoo / bath salts
#2: equipment for the slopes
The equipment for a perfect day of skiing could look like this:
- breathable ski underwar
- ski socks
- ski jacket
- fleece jacket or pullover
- thin down jacket
- cap, gloves, scarf
- ski / snowboard
- ski / snowboard boots
- ski helmet
- goggles / sunglasses
- back or body protectors
- backpack with: mobile phone, cereal bar, water bottle, sunglasses, sunscreen, lip care with UV protection, first aid kit
- for freeriders and off-piste skiers / snowboarders: avalanche probe / shovel and LVS device, and an ABS backpack is advised too
- ski/snowboard lock
For the ski holiday you should be well prepared. You need good skis, ski boots, ski poles or snowboarders the right equipment for snowboarding.
For safety on the ski slope, the ski helmet is a must.
Most of the heat is lost over the head and hands. That’s why it’s important to always wear your cap or ski helmet even when resting in the sun so as not to over-cool.
A back protector can help avoid injuries.
High-quality skiwear is a recommended must-have for the winter.
The mountains bring unexpected weather changes. Higher altitudes it can often be very windy and cool despite the cloudless blue sky.
Also a good sunscreen with a high SPF +50 should be part of the basic equipment – your skin will thank you!
In the mountains, the same sun protection rules apply as in the valley. If you move on a snow surface, the reflection of the radiation can increase it by up to 100 percent. The risk of damaging the damage is therefore increased many times over.
For those who do not have ski equipment or who want to rent their equipment, there is a large selection of sports shops (ski hire) available for you. Take advantage of the online bonus of 10%

If you drive winter tires are compulsory in Austria!

We also recommend you to keep these things in the car:
