|Ski racks with character|
The winter adds another layer of beauty and the spectacular peaks surrounding the village beckon you to jump on a lift and get up amongst them. We did just that, and started off at the Ehrwalder Alm just 5 minutes away by car or bus. Whilst there are runs for all levels of ability the area does favour those who are less experienced, or who just enjoy pootling around the pretty tree lined slopes.
For a more dramatic experience, a trip in the Zugspitze cable car is a must. It’s quite a journey to the top with spectacular scenery (vertigo sufferers – heads down and examine the floor). Once at the top there’s another cable car down to the glacier where there is some great skiing. Again, mostly blues and reds and with fantastic views over the surrounding peaks. In addition, the museum, restaurants and shops leave you wondering with incredulity how on earth people build these facilities in such extreme places.

Our daughter at nearly 13 was too old for the childcare, however there were plenty of happy smiley faces around the extensive children’s play area (I think she secretly wanted to join in, but deemed it ‘uncool’).
In summary, we had the most fabulous winter experience at the Tirolerhof, and couldn’t fault anything. The friendly staff, the fabulous food, the spa, the wonderful skiing; all the vital ingredients for a family holiday abundant with alpine wellness.
I've been raving about it non stop since I returned - so much so that colleague Angela has just booked up for her summer hols!
