16 August 2019 – Crystal Ski Holidays has added the Austrian resort of Hopfgarten to its programme for winter 2019/20.

With direct links to Soll and the SkiWelt area, this traditional Austrian village has plenty to offer. Whether you stop off for lunch at one of the mountain huts on the slopes or make the most of the variety of cafes, bars and shops in resort, there is something to suit all needs. Other popular activities include horse drawn carriage rides, cross country skiing, snow tubing, torch lit descent, winter walking and tobogganing.

The resort is just over an hours transfer from Innsbruck and only an hour and a half from Salzburg. Hopfgarten is the fifth resort offered in the SkiWelt area so skiers can make the most of the 286km of pistes on offer.

There are two hotels to choose from when booking a trip to Hopfgarten with Crystal Ski Holidays. The Sporthotel Hohe Salve has a big emphasis on wellbeing, with a huge outdoor pool, sun terrace, sauna, spa and gym. It is part of the Finest range and close to the resort centre.

The Familotel is perfect for families. This 4* hotel is half board, but children are upgraded to all-inclusive with all bookings. There are family rooms and kid’s clubs for all ages. The hotel also provides everything you need for children and infants such as milk, nappies and pushchairs. The Cinderella spa is popular with both children and adults and there is also a panoramic indoor pool, cinema room. Not forgetting the important things, there is also free ski storage by the lifts and the nursery ski slopes are on the hotel’s doorstep.

Crystal Ski Holidays announced Drei Zinnen in Italy as a new resort for the coming winter season earlier in the year. Located right on the Italian/Austrian border. It’s home to high quality hotels and offers good quality skiing. The resort is known for its family friendly character and skiers can make the most of this new resort with flights from Birmingham, Bristol, Edinburgh, London Gatwick and Manchester airports. We have a range of 4* hotels available for customers to choose from. The ski resort, made up of a handful of smaller villages, has access to 110km of piste over five mountains. These are all connected by a handy ski bus. The slopes have some of the best snowmaking facilities in Europe too.
