COLOGNE/BONN – On your marks, get set, ski: Only a short flight away, snow lovers will find the perfect piste conditions and cosy cabins to return to at the end of the day. Just in time for the start of the ski season, Eurowings is introducing access to four ski resorts in Europe where experienced deep-snow skiers, winter sports fans and families alike will get their money’s worth. Après-ski bunnies will also find exactly what they’re looking for.
For example, Eurowings offers flights from Hamburg to snowy Innsbruck three times a week, starting from €49.99. And to Zurich, prices are even lower: Passengers can fly to Switzerland starting from €29.99. Ski enthusiasts who want to bring their own winter equipment can simply bring it on the Eurowings flight in addition to their regular luggage, free of charge.
Ski like the royals: Davos Klosters
There's a reason why it's Prince Charles’ location of choice: excellent snow conditions are practically guaranteed in the five ski resorts of Davos Klosters. ‘Parsenn’, the biggest of the five, is known for its twelve-kilometre descent and altitude difference of 2,034 metres. The ‘Besenbinder’, the steepest piste in Davos Klosters, is a real must for adrenaline seekers. Eurowings offers all winter sports enthusiasts attractive connections from Germany to Zurich seven times a day, after which Davos Klosters is only 150 kilometres away.
The all-rounder ski resort: Ski Arlberg
The largest continuous ski resort in Austria is a paradise for the whole family. More than 300 kilometres of pistes across four ski resorts will appeal to sport enthusiasts and action lovers alike. Plus, it’s the only location in Austria for heli-skiers. The ski resort also offers one truly special feature: day tickets are limited to a certain amount, which is why you won't find crowded slopes and lifts. Après-ski fans will feel right at home in St. Anton. Meanwhile, families are guaranteed to have a relaxing time at the Wart-Schröcken ski resort. Whether you are a family or partygoer, Eurowings offers direct flights from Hamburg to Innsbruck three times a week. From there, you are only two hours away from your snow adventure in Ski Arlberg.
Party holiday in Austria: Sölden
When speaking of après-ski and Austria, Sölden is the first thing that comes to mind. The ‘Ibiza of the Alps’ offers countless umbrella bars and cabins for partygoers directly by the slopes. But Sölden has a lot more to offer than just the classic après-ski: various concerts and events, such as the Electric Mountain Festival, take place in the mountain resort. Sports fans are also well-placed here, thanks to the mogul slopes and Giggijoch boarding park. Every Friday during the peak season, cover bands set the mood for an entertaining evening. So pack your suitcase and fly to Innsbruck, only 83 kilometres from Sölden, up to three times a week.
