Single Parent Ski Holiday with Kids in the October Half Term

Have you and the kids missed out on your ski holiday due to COVID? Are you keen to get back on the piste? We know the feeling, so we have put together a 6-day ski holiday in Hintertux for October half term. Hintertux is the only glacier in Austria where you can ski all year round, so this is your chance to make up for lost time on the slopes!

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 for our single parents with kids and offer this ski holiday on 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 with view of the glacier, spa with several saunas, first-class restaurant and bar, 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. For further details, check out Our Programme.

Our Prices:

£980 per adult and from £690 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 and lessons and offer ski guiding for intermediate and advanced skiers. Flights are not included. For more details go to Dates & Prices.

Your Ski Holiday with Kids in Hintertux

The entrance to the glacier’s ski region is via the cable car ‘Glacier Bus’. 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 your and the kids’ ski gear back and forth. Due to the altitude of the ski region (3,250 m), the snow conditions in the autumn are great here.

The glacier circuit provides a total of 21 lifts with 60 km of blue, red and black pistes. 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, who will ski with the intermediate and advanced skiers. He or 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.

Other Activities on Offer :

Our hotel has an amazing spa with several saunas and a pool with a stunning view of the glacier to help you unwind after a day on the piste. And for anyone who feels like another work out after a day on the piste, the hotel has a modern gym. Our teenagers and older kids will love a match at the hotel’s own soccer and squash courts, while the little ones will stay entertained at the hotel’s kids room with games, a slide and table tennis.

To make the most of your glacier experience, we recommend a visit to 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.

This is our first ski holiday for single parent with kids in Hintertux. Please see below a selection of holiday reviews from some of our previous single parent ski holidays in Austria.

"Thank you Sandra and Ian for a really fabulous holiday. It was lovely to be so well looked after for our week and to have someone to guide us all over the ski area. You made sure everyone could ski with others of similar ability/ages of children and there were plenty of activities for anyone with enough energy left at the end of the day!"
- Lynn & Joshua (13) - single parent ski holiday Reith/Kitzbühel, February 2020
"Great to meet likeminded parents and children in a fun, action-packed holiday. Made a few good friends on another good holiday with SPOH, thank you Sandra."
- Gemma & Theo (9) - single parent ski holiday Reith/Kitzbühel, February 2020
"I have been on 3 holidays with SPOH. I am a mother of a child with complex special needs and very specific dietary requirements. I look forward to going on trips with the company as nothing is too much trouble and they go over and above what you would expect whatever you need and this means that as a parent I can feel relaxed and comfortable that I will always have a great trip with my son. I can't imagine booking my ski trips with anyone else."
- Claudette & Isaac (13) - single parent ski holiday in Reith/Kitzbühel, February 2019
"Yet another great holiday, fantastically well organised by Sandra - once more we had a fabulous time. "
- Richard & Henry (15) - single parent ski holiday in Reith/Kitzbühel, February 2019
"I have booked the skiing holiday to Reith for my daughter and I. The main reason was to ensure other kids will be around for my daughter to play with after skiing and other adults to discuss with for my sanity. We had a fantastic time both on the slopes and in the evening. It was great for my daughter and I to go skiing with other parents & kids of the same level and to be able to retreat to the bar in the evening knowing my daughter was laughing with the other kids. Sandra's organisation was faultless and effortless for us to follow (I am sure it wasn't effortless for her). We enjoyed it so much that we are going to the next trip at Easter."
- F & C (11) - single parent ski holiday in Reith/Kitzbühel, February 2019
"Another brilliant holiday with SPOH. Every year my daughter grows to love these holidays more, and in turn I get a well needed break. The children were all brilliant with each other, especially the older ones being inclusive towards to younger ones; there was a wonderful feeling of 'team' amongst the adults. A skiing holiday isn't always the most relaxing of breaks, especially as a solo parent, but I can-not think of a better way to ski with my daughter. We will be back for another adventure soon."
