Austrian Winter Mountain Fitness Escape

Altitude training that’s not all about hard work

Our Austrian Winter mountain fitness escape is the perfect excuse to leave the gloomy dark nights behind and enjoy the white stuff in new ways this winter. It’s also the ideal holiday for female-only, male-only or mixed groups of friends and family so gather them up and put this under their noses (aka their facebook timeline) to get the ball rolling!

Our Austrian winter mountain fitness escape

While the masses hitch a lift up the mountain, you’ll be heading away from the downhill rat runs toward fresh powder and hidden Glühwein huts using every piece of adrenalin-inducing winter sports equipment you can think of. For example…

Night time tobogganing and Austrian Snow Biking

Those up for a laugh can layer up for some night time tobogganing or grab a Snow Bike for some great core training and the latest in uber cool on-piste action; so easy you’ll be carving up the mountain within an hour.

Ski-Hike tour & snow hole adventure

If you’re craving time on the skis though then test your lactate threshold on our Ski-Hike tour where you’ll ‘skin’ up some of the region’s finest gradients. Don’t worry, the empty, pristine summits will make all the hard work worthwhile and you’ll soon be skiing back down the valleys for a sauna and massage. If a night at altitude should appeal though, you’ll stay up-high to craft a snow hole that will be your room for the night, complete with free mountain survival training!

Austrian Biathlon

More Spy Who Loved Me than Skyfall, on our Biathlon workshop you’ll master cross country skiing, navigating the Alpine course and scoping out targets in true Bond style. Having tamed your heart rate, you’ll take your shots before hotfooting it as only 007 knows how. All this under the guidance of 3x Austrian champ and Olympic games 2002 participant Marc Meyer, whose father was also Austrian national biathlon coach so there’s some guaranteed XC pedigree!!

Snow shoeing

Or if it’s all just too much, head off for a sedate snow shoe trudge to the local Glühwein huts!

Austrian Ice Driving

Or if you’re still ready for more, a kick of adrenalin is guaranteed during some Austrian ice driving here in Lungau!
You can choose which vehicle you want to use, so can practise your handling skills on a road car or you can test yourselves on a full-blown rally car! It’s quite an intricate course with plenty of turns in both directions so is SERIOUS FUN!!
