Single Parent Ski Holiday at Easter

Join us and other single parent families on an Easter ski holiday at the Hintertux Glacier in Austria. Hintertux is the only glacier in Austria where you can ski all year round, at an altitude of up to 3,250 metres, and expect great snow conditions even in April.

Your Accommodation:

For this single parent ski holiday we will stay at the wonderful 4-star hotel Alpendbad Hotel Hohenhaus in walking distance of the cable car station (or a mere 3-minute shuttle if you don’t fancy the walk). We have reserved double and triple rooms with balcony on a half-board plus basis with breakfast buffet, après-ski snack and 5-course dinner menu with vegetarian and kids options. The hotel facilities include an amazing panoramic pool and whirlpool with view of the glacier, spa with several saunas, first-class restaurant and bar, modern fitness room and even a squash court and soccer court.

The Hintertux Glacier Ski Resort:

Hintertux is the only glacier in Austria where you can ski 365 days a year and one of only a handful of glaciers across Europe open to skiers all year round. The region offers 21 lifts and 60 km of well-prepared pistes, as well as a range of other highlights, including the Ice Palace atop the glacier, and the Spannangel Cave – a fascinating natural monument and the largest natural stone cave in the Central Alps. Additionally you have access to the nearby Eggalm, which is the entry to the Zillertal Ski & Glacier World with 66 lifts and 202 km of well-prepared slopes. For further details, check out Our Programme.

Our Prices:

£1150 per adult and from £820 for the first child. Second children under 12 receive a 25% discount.  This price includes half-board Plus at our 4-star hotel, airport transfers, and services of our host, who will organise lift passes, ski hire, ski lessons, and offer ski guiding for intermediate and advanced skiers. Flights are not included. For more details go to Dates & Prices.

Your Family Ski Holiday in Hintertux

The Hintertux glacier circuit provides a total of 21 lifts with 60 km of blue, red, and black pistes. Due to the altitude of the ski region (3,250 m), excellent snow conditions are guaranteed. If you are a beginner or wish to improve your technique, you can book ski lessons at the local ski school. Everyone else can join their Single Parents on Holiday host/s, who will ski with the intermediate and advanced skiers. He/she will also organise lift passes for our group of single parent families and take everyone to the ski/snowboard hire shop, where pre-booked equipment will be waiting. Our hotel will provide a shuttle to the cable car station mornings and afternoons. Alternatively, you can walk to and from the hotel in 15 minutes. There are lockers and a ski hire shop at the cable car station, so you don’t have to worry about carrying ski gear back and forth.

In addition to the glacier circuit, we can shuttle to Eggalm (only 10 minutes from our hotel), which is entry to the outstanding Zillertal Ski & Glacier World with 66 modern lifts and 202 km of well prepared pistes, with a wide range of blue, red and black runs for all levels of ability.

Other Activities on Offer:

Our hotel has an amazing spa including several saunas and a pool with stunning views of the glacier to help you unwind after a day on the slopes. And for anyone who still feels like a work out at the end of the day, the hotel has a modern fitness room. There are also football and squash courts and a kids’ room with games, a slide, and table tennis, to keep both younger kids and teenagers entertained in the afternoon and evening.

We highly recommend a visit of the Ice Palace at the top of the glacier followed by a drink at the impressive Panorama Terrace at 3,250 metres, as well as a visit of the Spannangel cave, the largest stone cave in the Central Alps.

Hintertux Glacier:

Hintertux is the only glacier in Austria open to skiers all year round. Located on the edge of the famous Zillertal Valley in Tyrol, and close to the mighty Olperer mountain standing at 3,476 m, the glacier offers a huge choice of pistes against a breathtakingly beautiful backdrop. One of the main attractions (and the longest run, at around 12 km) is from the Gefrorene Wand (“Frozen Wall”) all the way down to Hintertux.

The so-called three “glacier buses” – large gondolas taking you to the top of the glacier – are an experience in their own right. You will need to take three of the glacier buses to reach the very top, where you can relax with a drink on the Panorama Terrace, with its breathtaking views, and visit the unique Ice Palace, home to magical ice stalactites, vast, sparkling ice crystals, frozen waterfalls and even a glacial lake. The views and the ice palace make this ski holiday a truly magical experience with the kids.

And for everyone who wants to venture out further, Eggalm, which is only a 10-minute shuttle ride from our hotel, is the entrance to the outstanding Zillertal Ski & Glacier World with 66 modern lifts and 202 km of well prepared pistes, with runs up to 2300 meters, offering great spring skiing.

Below you will find several holiday reviews from our single parents who joined us at the Hintertux Glacier in October half term 2021.

"Fantastic, total hands-off holiday. Kids were happy with other kids. We parents enjoyed our grown up conversations (mostly) at meal times. Skiing was great, although the Glacier was dangerously icy at the time of the year, we went. But where would you be able to ski at this time of the year, anyway. Both me and my 10 yr old daughter loved it, everyone was warm and lovely and put us at ease, even though it was our first time with the group. We both made friends that we can't wait to see and meet again."
- Rujuta & Ruhani (10) - single parent ski holiday in the October half term 2021 in Hintertux, Austria
"After so long stuck at home due to Covid, the Hintertux ski week was just the tonic we needed. We've been on several SPOH holidays and the organisation was, as ever, spot on and the hosts Sandra & Ian were never far away should any issues arise. My daughter (12) made the most of the excellent hotel facilities (pool / games room) with her new pals."
- Laura & Georgia (12) - single parent ski holiday in the October half term 2021 in Hintertux, Austria
"This was a great holiday with friendly hosts and other guests. The skiing was challenging, but we hope to return next year to take on the glacier. This is the way to start the ski season. "
- Warren & son (13) - single parent ski holiday in the October half term 2021 in Hintertux, Austria
"We enjoyed our stay at the Alpenbad Hohenhaus. The staff are efficient, friendly and go out of their way to be kind and helpful. They are also very patient and good with children. Hintertux is a glorious place and my children learn to ski there but the slopes can be icy in October so it is maybe not the best place for beginners."
