There’s are a few reasons that we choose Austria for Snowboard Spring Break, including the best prices in Europe, incredible glacial terrain, a well developed Spring program and the fact it;s super easy to get to to from the UK, whether you fly or drive.
The best airports to fly to are Innsbruck, Munich or Salzburg. Innsbruck is the closest at around 90 minutes from resort, but flights from London are limited to Saturday, Tuesday and Thursday flights (please note that the Wednesday flight is no longer available, meaning you can fly back on Thursday for an extra day (yay) or Tuesday for one less (actually, just fly back on Thursday. Seriously, you’ll thank us). Munich and Salzburg are both around 3-3.5 hours away with multiple flights from airports around the UK every day and as a result may be more practical. BOOK EARLY FOR THE BEST PRICES! Flights are currently running from around £100 return, but that is sure to go up as the event date approaches.
It is possible to get public transport from the airports (www.bahn.de for itineraries), but car hire is cheap and makes much more sense as you have a car to get yourself up and down the hill every day, meaning you don’t have to rely on the public bus service. Please note, we do not offer a transfer service from the airport.
If you are in a group, consider making a road trip of it! While it takes around ten hours to drive from Calais or Dunkirk to Kaunertal, it’s an easy trip to make, and with multiple drivers, it’s a chilled and pleasant way to get there. Drive through Belgium and Germany to avoid expensive road tolls in France but don’t forget to buy a ‘vignette’ in Austria which allows you to drive on the motorways and costs around €15. Fuel is much cheaper in Europe than in the UK (consider leaving the motorways to find better prices for filling up) and the motorway service food is about 100 times better than it is in the UK.
