So, you’re thinking of bringing a group?

With over 20 years of experience arranging holidays in the area, we can help you to arrange your ski trip to suit your group’s needs.  Whether you are organizing a social event, a company works trip or celebrating a special occasion, with our resort knowledge we can add those touches that will make your trip special.

Why book your group with Redpoint?

Our specialist resort knowledge and more than 20 years of experience in the area means that we can advise on the facilities that will be available to you in resort and help to organize those important details in advance, so that everything runs smoothly upon arrival.
Our Resort Team is on hand throughout your trip to ensure that all your group’s requirements are taken care of during your stay, so you will have peace of mind and be able to relax and spend time with your group rather than running errands and dealing with requests.
We tailor the holiday to your group and will create a personalized package for you to ensure that you get the best possible prices and include everything you need. Our flexibility means that group members don’t have to do exactly the same to join your group and could fly from different airports or have differing holiday needs that can be incorporated into your tailored package.

Where to ski?

With over 500km of skiing and 179 ski lifts included on your ski pass, the Ziller Valley has plenty of skiing to suit all levels of skier.  The local ski areas of Spieljoch, Hochfuegen and Hochzillertal  offer a great progression of slopes for those learning to ski whilst also offering some challenging red runs (including the longest ski run in the valley bringing you back down to the village), several black runs and some fantastic off piste terrain for expert skiers. Skiers who are learning to ski typically spend the week skiing the local ski areas.  More advanced skiers will find plenty to ski close to home, but if they do decide to explore further afield, will find convenient ski bus and train links to the other resorts included on the ski pass, such as Mayrhofen, Zell or the Hintertux Glacier.

Where to stay?

Stay at one of our carefully chosen Hotels or Apartments.  All are conveniently situated within 5 minutes walk of the gondola ski lift and the resort facilities.
The four star superior Garden Hotel Crystal offers a fabulous luxury ski and spa experience, with it’s Atrium Spa facilities and fantastic meals.

The cosy four star Hotel Bruno has a relaxing lounge with open fireplace to have a drink before or after dinner.  Four course evening meals await upon your return from the slopes and a buffet breakfast is served in the mornings to start your day.

Apartments sleep from 2 – 11 people and more a number of them can be booked within the same chalet when booking early.

Group Ski Holiday – Lift Passes and Hire

A  “Super Zillertal” lift pass is usually included.  This covers all of the skiing in the Ziller Valley.  It also includes use of the ski buses and train when skiing in the different ski areas in the valley.  Local area passes are only possible for single days.  As soon as you book more than 2 days in a row there is only the Super Zillertal option.

Equipment Hire can be included depending on your needs and skiing level.  One of the Redpoint Resort Team will assist and advise you at the ski hire shop upon arrival when you go to collect your equipment.  It is best to pre-book one of the standard options, but it will still be possible to amend or upgrade this once you try on equipment in the shop.

Choices of ski or snowboard fall into the categories of Bronze, Silver or Gold.  The Bronze skis are best suited to first-time skiers, as they are more forgiving when learning the very basics at slow speeds.  Silver skis will suit most intermediate skiers who ski mainly the blue and red runs.  The Gold ski category is ideal for those skiers who ski the black runs and more difficult terrain, or those who usually have their own equipment.  The VIP category is best chosen in the shop and provides specialist skis – this is something an advanced skier may choose to book as an upgrade on the day to suit the conditions.

Boots also come as Standard or Deluxe options, but the most important thing with the ski boot is making sure it fits you well, which can only be finalized once you are in the shop.  Our representatives can advise you once in resort.

Poles are included with the ski hire.  It is also possible to hire a helmet if you don’t already have one.

Group Ski Holiday FAQ’s

What kind of groups have you catered for in the past? 2017-09-19T12:18:30+00:00

We have run trips for various types of groups, including weddings, ski clubs, corporate groups and training organizations.  Whether you are booking a trip to celebrate a special occasion, arranging a social event for your club, or organizing a training or team-building event for your company, we can help.

How may people to we need to make a group booking? 2017-09-19T12:09:18+00:00

We can tailor your holiday to suit you, so can cater for any size group, whether you are a small group of friends or a large party.  A group booking is usually for between 20 – 50 people.  Larger groups than this may want to consider either staying at different hotels near to each other, or splitting into more than one group and coming over a number of weeks.    If you have less than 20 people, it’s no problem to organize your trip, although smaller groups are not eligible for the same type of group discounts that are possible when more than 20 people travel together.

Is it easy for skiers of different levels to meet up for lunch on the ski area? 2017-09-19T11:52:26+00:00

Spieljoch is very convenient for meeting up, with the gondola station coming up from the village providing a perfect central point.  For skiers learning to ski on the blue runs the gondola station is at the bottom of the blue slopes and the meeting point for their ski lessons.  For more advanced skiers, the red and black runs circulate back to the gondola making it easy to return to in time to meet friends or family without unnecessary travelling.  Non-skiers can come up the gondola to meet everybody for lunch, or to sit out in a deck chair on the sun terrace for drinks.  Groups of families with infants can bring their prams up to the top for the day and share the childcare by taking it in turns to go for a ski (or drop off the children at the Kindergarten for a few hours and ski together).  Hochfugen is a valley with all slopes leading down to the central area, making it easy to meet up in the middle.

I would like to visit Zell and Mayrhofen. How long does it take to get there? 2017-09-19T11:24:09+00:00

You can get to Zell am Ziller and Mayrhofen on the train or ski bus, which is included on your lift pass.

What is there to do in the resort for non-skiers? 2017-09-19T11:26:52+00:00

Non-skiers can go up the gondola ski lift to the top of the mountain and take in the breathtaking views as well as joining skiing family members for lunch at a mountain restaurant on the slopes.  There are some lovely mountain walks to explore up on the mountain as well as forest walks starting from the village.  The village itself has several cafes, a number of shops, a small local museum as well as other tourist attractions, such as the dairy showcasing the local cheese-making and the butcher making traditional Austrian “Speck”.  There is a narrow-gauge railway running up the valley, making it easy to take a train trip to explore other villages in the valley.  Or go on an excursion to nearby Lake Achensee, the village of Rattenberg renowned for it’s Crystal, or visit Innsbruck the capital of the region.

Do I need a Super Zillertal Lift Pass, or can I buy one for just the local ski area? 2017-09-19T11:28:13+00:00

Once you buy a lift pass for more than 2 days in a row, then there are no local-area pass options, so all skiers buy the “Super Zillertal” pass regardless of their skier level.
