The Exhilaration of a Ski Holiday

On a ski holiday the exhilaration of skiing well is matched by its congeniality. The special world of sun and snow, slopes and chairlifts, brings quick and easy conversation and friendships which follow into the apres-ski life, long after the lifts have stopped, and the snow turns violet and long-shadowed. The relaxed mood and physical well-being induced by the excitement of the day is enjoyed in the cosmopolitan and happy atmosphere of apres-ski activity.

Skiing makes a marvellous holiday, the resort a refreshingly new way of life, in all, an escape from the noisy humdrum of a grey winter. It is a return to the elemental, transporting one high into the mountains, beyond ice blue brooks and silent frozen waterfalls to a new world combining relaxation and exhilaration.

That is why skiing has become the widest participant sport in Europe, enjoyed by all ages and lifestyles and, having once had a ski holiday, skiers can’t wait to return to the snow. 

Ski Club of Ireland

The February club holiday in 2023 will be in Schladming Austria  for the week commencing Saturday February 25th. Schladming is a resort steeped in ski racing history – it hosts the famous night slalom each winter – but with a pretty medieval town and four mountains of skiing to choose from, there is much more to this resort than just a ski race. Schladming hosted the final men’s Alpine Ski World Cup event in January 2022 prior to the Winter Olympics in Beijing.

The four mountains provide a 123km network of well-prepared, linked pistes, served by a modern and fast fleet of lifts. Most of the terrain is suited to intermediates, but there are some challenges for more advanced skiers and riders, as well as some decent beginner facilities – particularly at Rohrmoos.

Schladming itself has an attractive, car-free town centre and it certainly can get lively, especially at the end of the ski day.  Most of Schladming's buildings are traditional and at the village’s heart there's a pleasant, traffic-free main square. Schladming is a lively resort being home to the largest après ski lodge in the Alps.
