In this post we’re going to look at what each of the Mark Warner ski resorts can offer, with a view to finding you the perfect base for your exciting, ski holiday.
Great for kids and great for nightlife, why not visit this traditional, oldy-worldy resort full of chocolate box charm? This hotel is just a few minutes walk from both the ski school and the lifts, and its dining room has the most astonishing view onto the olympic ski run down below. Enjoy a romantic trip for two with wine and spa privileges here. (Even if you have kids – there are extensive childcare opportunities available). You’ll have an active but memorable week in the snow.
Full of wooden walls and stone floors, this stylish Italian resort is the perfect place to spend a quiet and romantic ski break for two outside the school holidays, as it’s adults only at this time. You can enjoy the sauna and hot tub in peace. You can meander down the cobbled walkways, browsing the boutiques and sampling local delicacies in the bars and restaurants at your leisure. Most importantly you can dedicate yourself to improving your skiing techniques, without being distracted by the happy squeals of little ones.
This is the perfect resort for large families. Its relaxed atmosphere, combined with its large rooms and effective ‘learn to ski’ weeks lends itself to an extremely productive and fun week for varying ages and abilities. 225km of runs are accessible from this resort, with the possibility of trying out 300km more. The plentiful wide and gentle runs are great for beginners to find their footing and intermediates to gain a bit more confidence, but that doesn’t mean there’s nothing for more advanced skiers to do. The 37 black runs are a hit with the pros, providing as they do an exhilarating ride.
Looking to upgrade your ski experience a little? You can’t go wrong with this 4* hotel in one of Europe’s most exciting resorts. Perhaps you want to feel pampered with a slightly more comfortable bed, or you’d like the opportunity to watch the sun set on the white, gleaming slopes from the exclusive vantage point of the private balcony attached to your room, as you sip a glass of sparkling champagne? You can do that here. The snow here is reliable and available for most of the year, regardless of whether you prefer skiing or snowboarding and when you’re not on the slopes, you’ll be able to choose between swimming in the heated indoor or outdoor pool. With superb childcare, it’s great for kids. With plenty of shops, bars and restaurants nearby, it’s great for everyone else too.
Warm and cosy, decorated in a traditional chalet style, this lively Austrian resort is an exciting retreat for those to looking to fill their nights, as well as their days. Children are not permitted to stay here during term time, so you’ll enjoy adult-only accommodation and a party atmosphere. A hearty English breakfast is available each morning, should you wish to mop up any excess alcohol in your system before heading out onto the slopes.
This richly decorated hotel in the 3 valleys area is as close to the action as you can get, with its ski in, ski out facilities. You’ll see your fellow piste fanatics skiing past your window as you enjoy your morning croissants, or if you’re an early bird yourself, you’ll be in amongst them. It’s spacious and extremely family friendly, with English speaking nannies on hand to escort your kids to their Magic Snowsports Academy, to ensure you don’t miss the best part of the day on the slopes. In the evenings, after you’ve had a soak in the whirlpool and enjoyed the 3 course meal with wine included in your package, you can either hit the bars or have an early night to prepare for the next day. Another worry that this resort will take off your hands is the effects dedicated skiing time can have on your face, hands and feet. There is a beauty salon on site to make sure you look your best at all times.
