    Solo Ski & Board Holidays
    Solo Ski & Board Weeks are designed for people who want to go on a ski holiday on their own. Whether it is because your usual ski buddy can't make it, you don't know anyone else who skis, or you are single and want to make new friends, coming on a solo week means you have some skiing company during the day and a chance to socialise in the evenings.

    The week includes five days of Guided Skiing (from Sunday to Thursday), where your guide shows you around the ski areas of Spieljoch, Hochfugen and Hochzillertal and may take you for a Day Out to the ski areas of Mayrhofen or Zell, or another area in the valley, depending on the conditions. Fridays are left free for you to ski with your new skiing buddies or take a day off.

    The guiding is provided for the group of 8 - 10 people, so that everyone has on snow company to stop with for a drink or lunch on the mountain and some company on the slopes. It is not a race and the guide will adjust the tempo to suit the middle to slow end of the group. You are, however, required to be able to ski/board red runs confidently to join the guiding and have the fitness required to participate for the day. The guide will decide whether you have the ability to join the group on the first day. See the FAQ's for more details on your level. If you are a novice or intermediate, then you can swap the guided days out for beginner or intermediate lessons when making your booking.

    Accommodation is at the cosy Hotel Bruno in single rooms and solos are seated together at mealtimes. The cosy bar is a great place for a social drink and there is the chance to join in a range of optional evening activities.

    FAQ's
    Frequently Asked Questions
    How many guided groups are there per week?
    There is one guide per group of 8 - 10 people per week.
    Am I a good enough skier to join the guiding?
    Participants should be able to confidently ski red runs and must have skied for more than 3 weeks before to be allowed to participate in the guiding.
    What if I want to ski faster than the group?
    Skiers who want to ski faster than the average pace for the group can arrange with the guide to ski away from the group and meet back at one of the meeting points during the day for a social lunch or coffee stop. As long as you let the guide know before you leave the group, then this arrangement can usually be made on the day direct with the guide.
    What happens if I can't keep up with the group because of my ski ability?
    Skiers who are not able to ski at a suitable pace may be refused the chance to participate in the guiding at the guide's discretion. The guide will decide on the first day whether everyone in the group can join the guiding for the rest of the week.
    What if the guide decides my skiing is not to the required level?
    Skiers who, in the guide's opinion, can not ski to the required level will be refused a place on the guiding for the rest of the week. Usually skiers who are not able to participate in the guiding due to their lack of skiing experience are offered the opportunity to take ski lessons, for which there is an extra charge.
    What happens if I can't keep up with the group because of my fitness?
    If you are able to ski the red runs confidently, but find that you get tired quicker than the rest of the group, you can arrange with your guide to take additional coffee stops or a longer lunch break and meet up with the rest of the group later, some days this may be difficult to arrange.
    I am a beginner; can I still book this holiday?
    If you are a beginner or less experienced skier, you can swap the guided days out for lessons at time of booking.
    Are your guides qualified?
    All our guides are qualified instructors.
    Can our guide help our ski technique during the guided days out?
    Although our guides are qualified instructors and are happy to offer suggestions and tips to help your skiing while riding the ski lifts, they do not teach on the Solo Days Out. If you would like ski lessons, then please add instruction as an extra to your package.
    What can we expect from our guide?
    Your guide is there to arrange getting to the skiing, a plan for the day with meeting points for coffee and lunch and some company for people skiing at an average pace for the group. The purpose of the guiding is to provide company, so there will always be faster and slower skiers in the group and the guide's job is to make sure everyone in the group has a social day out on the slopes.

If you would prefer to be allocated a double room for single use, then please mention this when making your reservation and a single occupancy supplement of £15 per night will be added to your quote.

    Bathroom Facilities
    Most bathrooms have a shower, not a bath. If you have a preference, then please request your preference for bath or shower when making your booking.

    Allergies and Dietary Needs
    Please note that the rooms have down pillows and duvets, so you will need to make a special request for non-feather bedding if you have an allergy. If you are vegetarian, or have any other special dietary requirements, then please let us know so that we can ensure that you are fully catered for.

    Special Requests
    If you are celebrating a special occasion or want to organize a special event for your group, then please let us know and we can prepare it for you. Cakes, flowers, champagne, a special excursion or evening dinner can be pre-arranged for you.

    Please ensure that the passenger name you give us is your full name as written on your passport and check that it is spelt correctly. We will also ask for your date of birth for our records.

    Check in and Check out times.
    The standard check-in time is from 2pm and check out is at 10am. We do inform the hotel of your arrival time and wherever possible, they will try to have your room available earlier if necessary. If you have a late departure, it is sometimes possible to request to keep your room for longer. If this isn't possible, then the hotel has a storage room for your luggage until your departure time.
