Ski Juwel spreads across the Alpbachtal og Wildschönau valleys. It’s a typical family resort, with wide runs and many cozy cottages and restaurants, but the area also offers a safe off-piste terrain between the prepared slopes. We’re staying just 250 m from the lift at Hotel Platzl, which is a family-owned and operated hotel with a good kitchen and a cozy restaurant where we’ll enjoy breakfast and dinner together. We’ve booked 23 rooms for 2-4 people – up to 55 people in total.

The trip is designed primarily for Microsoft employees and their families with kids from 10 years and up (2013). In addition to a fantastic experience on skiis, we’re also offering the opportunity to have fun together across age groups and families and make new friends.

Note: Because the number of hotel rooms and flight tickets is limited and sign-up is first-come-first-served, we advise that you register quickly. Registration will close when all rooms are taken, or at the latest on December 8.

Skiområde og by

SKI AREA AND TOWN

We’ll stay in the town of Auffach, about 250 m from the Schatzbergbahn lift which takes us up to the ski area. Auffach is quiet and does not have much nightlife, but it has a few after-ski bars. There are sport stores with ski-rental, a supermarket, bank, and restaurants and cafes. The town is only about 15 km from Wörgl and the highway, so getting there by car is easy.

 

Ski Juwel is a favorite for the locals and spans across the Alpbachtal and Wildschönau valleys. Its 46 lifts and 109 km of slopes are comprised of 26 km blue, 54 km red, and 29 km black. It goes up to 2,025 m and because the runs are primarily facing east and north it fosters good spring snow conditions even in late March.

INSTRUCTION AND ACTIVITIES

9 hours of alpine ski instruction

High-quality ski instruction with some of the club’s best ski instructors. The head of the ski school creates a program so that everyone receives instruction at the same time for three hours each day (on Monday afternoon, Tuesday and Wednesday mornings). The teams are formed based on ability, from beginners to experienced, so that everyone get’s the most out of the instruction. Unfortunately, there is no instruction for snowboarders.

When the days of skiing are over there’s of course “After-skiing” with plenty of room for the kids and adults to hang out together, enjoy a beverage and perhaps play a game that they’ve brought along on the trip
