Spend a fantastic week skiing the idyllic Austrian ski resort of Filzmoos. Its excellent snow record and quiet slopes offers a relaxing, laid-back week of skiing perfect for beginners along with intermediates finding their ski legs once again.
Beginners & Intermediates
This traditional and picturesque Austrian ski resort is located in the Amade region, one of the largest ski areas in Europe. Located at the foot of the Bischofsmutze mountain and the Dachstein glacier, the resort offers great snow for skiing and downhill runs straight into the village The Filzmoos ski area covers around 13 km of slopes, including two big ski mountains – the Rossbrand at an altitude of 1,600 metres in the south and the Grossberg sunshine oasis in the north. There are slopes to suit everyone. For beginners the selection of gentle nursery slopes are ideally located at the Grossberg chairlift near the village centre. For intermediates the main area is the Grossberg where the Grossberg and Mooslehen chairlifts connect to the Neuberg valley. The Papageno gondola takes you to the Moosalm pistes from where you can ski fantastic slopes back down to the village. For the more advanced skier, the black run is accessed by the Papageno gondola and descends from the Schneekanone hut. In addition, there is a racing run to whizz down – the Michaela-Kirchgasser-FIS run on the Grossberg lift.

Apres-ski starts in the afternoon at the Happy Schrimbar/Happy Alm and the Alm Stadl or for a more relaxed affair in one of the lovely ski huts as the sun goes down. When evening hits, the fun continues at the Tanzbar Kenn’I di and the stylish Kalahari Bar which boasts live music and DJs throughout the season.
For those looking for a more varied and larger skiing area, the busier resort of Flachau with access to over 350km of pistes plus further access to the Ski Amade region, is included within the ski passes and is only a 20 minute taxi/bus ride away, of which can be organised by our hotel ( approx €20 return)

You may either take group ski lessons, private ski lessons or form groups to enjoy exploring the slopes together. Whatever your preference, your Tour Leader will be available to help organise your skiing.
This can be hired in the resort where you will be advised about the most suitable equipment for your standard of skiing. It is very important to have ski boots that are comfortable and fit well, so do not be afraid to keep going back and changing your boots until you get a good fit. For your safety, we advise that you wear a ski helmet wherever possible.
On a skiing holiday, dress is generally very informal, the emphasis being on comfort and warmth. We recommend that you pack a pair of skiing trousers and warm ski jacket or a waterproof shell and separate fleece lining or an all-in-one ski suit. Thermal or silk underwear is recommended. Cotton/cotton mix roll necks, T-shirts or sweatshirts; several thin layers are better than one thick layer. Ski socks, ski gloves or mitts and a hat or headband are suggested. Where temperatures are expected to be well below zero, take a facemask or balaclava. Moon boots or waterproof walking shoes are a “must”. Suntan cream (high protective factor), lip salve, sunglasses and/or goggles are all very useful items to pack. Casual clothes are ideal for the evenings; it is unusual on skiing holidays to dress formally in the evenings.
We suggest a Group Collection to cover transfer drivers, and hotel staff of €20.00 per person. Your Tour Leader will collect this on your behalf and distribute it accordingly, thus relieving you of the burden of who, when and how much to tip. The tipping of housekeeping will be left to your individual discretion (a small amount left in your room on departure should cover this and would be much appreciated). As is customary, ‘the hat’ will be passed around for the driver and guide on all optional excursions. For any meals that are not included in your itinerary, or taxi fares, your Tour Leader can advise of an appropriate % to add on. If you choose to have ski lessons, you may also like to thank your ski instructor at the end of the week with a token of appreciation.
I was so nervous about embarking on my first Solos Holiday, but I shouldn’t have been – it was the best thing I have ever done!
Wow! Got to see the famous shipwreck beach in Zakynthos with Solos. Can’t wait to discover more of their destinations!
Our tour leader Monica was exceptional! Had such a good time and will be rebooking with Solos. Thanks for a great holiday!
Had the best time with Solos! Discovered beautiful destinations and met some lifelong friends.
