Why skiing is the perfect way to explore if a solo group holiday is for you
In an age where people are encouraged to celebrate their status rather than be confined by it, solo travel is remaining a growing holiday sector. Information available to us now allows us to find the best ski holidays for solo travellers – from details on the best ski resorts, real time weather forecasts to online advance booking of ski equipment.
Catered chalets and ski lodges
Skiing is a perfect choice for a first solo holiday. Catered ski chalets and the new generation of ski lodges offer the opportunity to meet like-minded people in a convivial atmosphere. Some resorts run social skiing groups where accommodation is shared in groups of two or three, so you can share a chalet and some fantastic times with new people. You get shown around all the best pistes and you make friends along the way. You can have company when you want it, and a bit of freedom when you don’t. And there is no better sense of freedom than being out on the slopes.
Group holidays for singles 40+
Single parents face a dilemma when their children have grown up. You have enjoyed many ski holidays together with your kids, but now they want to do their own thing, travel independently with friends and aren’t so interested in holidaying with a parent. This leaves you a bit stuck as a single parent. But don’t worry! Single Parents on Holiday offer ski holidays for solo travellers in their 40s, 50s, and above. Their 2021 and 2022 programme includes several solo ski holidays in Schladming, Mayrhofen, and Hintertux. The famous Austrian ski resort of Schladming is a good place to start: The small holiday town has everything you could want as a solo traveller. Your Single Parents on Holiday ski host and guide will escort you on the piste, organise group dinners, lift passes, ski classes and ski hire and any other winter activities you might like to try. The package includes half-board accommodation at a 4-star hotel in short walking distance to the cable car, with great facilities including a spa, saunas and pool. The famous town of Schladming also has plenty of bars, restaurants and cafés to keep you entertained after a day on the slopes. So check out the information and make your solo holiday one of the best solo ski holidays around.
