Whilst on holiday you are often more willing to spend money, and great bargain offers can lead to some great shopping opportunities, especially when there is still enough time to shop and stroll after the lifts have closed for the afternoon.

  • Great shopping facilities can be found in Schaldming am Dachstein (AT). The pedestrian zone offers countless shops with great deals on fashion and sportswear. From “Blue Tomatoe” to fashion boutique – the selection is huge.
  • In the French resort Les 2 Alpes you will find shops of popular sports brands, such as Billabong, Volcom, DC, Quicksilver or Roxy.
  • Livigno is known to be a real shopping paradise. This Italian ski centre is a toll-free area, making shopping especially worthwhile. A vast number of boutiques, sports shops and outlets await the customers here. The centre is also car-free, making the shopping trip all the more enjoyable.

Many women pay special attention to good nutrition and also want to eat healthily and substantially during their ski holidays. That’s not a problem at all, since many ski regions are also known for their good food. Guests can look forward to all kinds of culinary treats in the ski areas.

  • Right between Carinthia and Styria in the Gurktal Alps, an on-piste butler goes through the ski area of the Turracher Höhe with his butler-mobile, serving guests a glass of champagne or sweets. In springtime, children are offered ice-cream from the mountain farm. If requested the butler can also guide you on a gourmet-safari through the ski area’s quaint mountain huts.
  • The largest ski area in Vorarlberg, the Silvretta Montafon, now offers an extra service for vegans and vegetarians. Several mountain huts provide a “Green Corner”, serving a selection of healthy and meatless, specially created for skiers.
  • In Salzburg’s highest located restaurant at 3,029 m, renowned chefs prepare their culinary delicacies twice a year during the “Hochgenuss” series of events at the Kitzsteinhorn.
  • Very exquisite culinary delights are offered in the noble “Kristallhütte”, where 5-course gourmet menus are served in a choicely ambience on the top of the mountain.
  • The Alpine-Adriatic cuisine, typically found in the sunny Southern Alps, comprises the best of three countries’ specialities: it combines culinary influences from Austria, Italy and Slovenia to a mixture of regional and seasonal dishes that are both hearty but easy to digest.
