Last week I went on an adventure skiing in Austria. In fact I always wanted to learn skiing but never had the courage to try, even though I grew up in the mountains. So I took the decision to start the year learning something new and doing something I never had done before. A friend of mine recommended The Übergossene Alm Resort in Austria, a picturesque mountain retreat that offers guests a chance to escape the hustle and bustle of daily life and immerse themselves in nature.
Once you arrive at Salzburg airport for those who prefer the convenience of having their own transportation, the Übergossene Alm Resort is easily accessible by car. We were able to reach the hotel in less than an hour, which is a testament to the resort’s close proximity to the airport and its well-maintained roadways.
Driving also gave us more flexibility and freedom to explore the surrounding area. Whether you want to take a scenic drive or visit nearby towns and villages, having your own car makes it easy to get around and see all that this beautiful region has to offer.
The resort’s location, nestled in the heart of the Austrian Alps, provides breathtaking views of the surrounding mountain ranges, making it a perfect destination for those who love to explore the great outdoors.
One of the standout features of the Übergossene Alm Resort is its commitment to providing guests with healthy and organic food options. The resort’s buffet offers an array of delicious salads, desserts, and fruits that are not only delicious, but also nutritious. The food is prepared with care and attention to detail, and the staff is knowledgeable and happy to help guests make informed decisions about what they would like to eat.
Another highlight of the resort is its exceptional spa facilities. The spa area is beautifully designed and offers a range of services and treatments, including a sauna that requires guests to be naked as is standard in Austria. The spa provides a calming and relaxing atmosphere, allowing guests to unwind and rejuvenate after a long day of exploring the mountains.
The guest rooms at the Übergossene Alm Resort are well-appointed, with a lovely view and modern amenities. The rooms are tastefully decorated, and the furnishings are comfortable and inviting. However, it’s worth noting that the double beds are made up of two single mattresses and duvets, which may not be ideal for all guests; again, this is standard in Austria.
During our stay at the resort, we observed a mix of nationalities among the guests, with many Austrians, a few Dutch, some Germans, one or two French and only a few English-speaking visitors. Despite the language barriers, the staff is warm and welcoming, making it easy for guests to feel at home.
For skiing enthusiasts, the Übergossene Alm Resort is a great choice, as it offers convenient access to a variety of ski slopes. The blue, red, and black ski runs are just a stone’s throw from the hotel, making it easy for guests to hit the slopes and enjoy their favorite winter sport.
The resort makes skiing even more accessible by offering a well-organized arrangement for hiring equipment, obtaining ski passes and storing equipment. Guests can easily rent gear and purchase passes within the hotel, allowing them to spend more time on the slopes and less time dealing with logistics. For those who are new to skiing or want to improve their skills, the resort also offers ski lessons with experienced instructors, making it an ideal place for skiers of all levels to get the most out of their trip.
Overall, the Übergossene Alm Resort’s convenient location and comprehensive skiing services make it an excellent choice for anyone looking to enjoy the winter sports in Austria.
The Übergossene Alm Resort is not just a winter destination, it’s also a popular summer retreat. With its beautiful scenery and tranquil atmosphere, it’s an ideal place to relax, recharge and connect with nature.
Summertime offers a variety of outdoor activities, such as hiking, mountain biking, and wildlife watching. With its stunning mountain vistas, the surrounding area provides plenty of opportunities to explore the great outdoors and enjoy the beauty of nature. Whether you prefer a leisurely stroll or a challenging hike, there’s a trail for every level of fitness.
In conclusion, the Übergossene Alm Resort is a versatile destination that offers a full range of activities and amenities for all seasons. Whether you’re looking for a winter ski trip or a summertime escape, this resort has something to offer for everyone.
