Keeping fit at St Anton

When we think about going on holiday, we envisage having fun, relaxing and eating plenty of traditional foods. That's what getaways are made for, right?
But for some of us, all those tasty treats and continental delicacies can take their toll on our waistlines, making us feel lethargic and uncomfortable. Booking an adventure holiday, such as a skiing trip, can help to counteract those unwanted extra pounds, meaning you can have fun and keep fit while enjoying the various cuisines on offer.
The Austrian ski resort of St Anton boasts an array of sporting activities for you to partake in during your visit. Here's our pick of the best.

Skiing with a physical disability

If you're planning a winter getaway and either yourself, your friend or a member of your family has a physical disability or impairment, there's no need to worry because you can still book that dream skiing adventure in the French Alps.


Many ski resorts cater to everyone's needs, so having a disability doesn't mean you have to miss out on a fun-filled, action-packed holiday. Adaptive skiing and riding is a safe and customised way to experience and enjoy the slopes.


Although this specialised sport can be performed in many ski destinations, two particularly popular locations are the French resorts of Chamonix and Val Thorens. Located in the Mont Blanc valley, Chamonix offers a wide range of sporting activities and ski schools for those looking to learn or improve their skiing technique.

Fun ski experiences at Belle Plagne

Finding your dream skiing destination can be tricky - what with the location, hotel, activities and amenities to consider. That's why we're here to make things easier. If you're looking for a small, more relaxed atmosphere, but one that's still family-friendly and packed with fun activities, the French resort of Belle Plagne might just be the one for you. Located in the French Alps, Belle Plagne forms part of the larger La Plagne resort, but comes without the hustle and bustle of its bigger counterpart. Standing at an altitude of 2,500m, Belle Plagne comprises 50 miles of cross-country slopes and six snow play areas for children. Of course, skiing is the resort's main activity, but there's a whole load of things to do once you've finished hitting the slopes - such as hiking, playing snooker and relaxing at the spa. And for those who love to ski, but are in need of something more alternative, Belle Plagne boasts an array of fun skiing experiences. Here are some of our favourites.

The skier's guide to staying safe on the slopes

If you've booked or are planning a skiing holiday this season, it's easy to get caught up in the excitement and spend little time thinking about the importance of staying safe while out on the slopes. Skiing and snowboarding are both competitive sports that can lead to serious injury if the safety guidelines are not adhered to. Skiers and snowboarders should be cautious, conscientious and aware of the rules. But just in case you're not, here's a reminder: Direction, Overtaking, Speed control, Stopping,...

 

The best evening activities in Val Thorens

So you're on a family holiday in Val Thorens - the highest ski resort in the French Alps - and you've spent your day zooming down the slopes. You've enjoyed every minute, but it's the evening and you want a change of scene. You're not ready to wind down just yet, so what do you do?


Although you're in a ski resort, there's lots more activities on offer than just skiing. Whether you're a couple, a group of friends, or spending time with your children, there's something for everyone to get involved with. Here's a guide to the best way to end your night in Val Thorens: Bowling, Music concerts, Cinema

Swiss wrestling in Zermatt

Planning a winter skiing trip, but fancy taking some time out from the slopes? Look no further than the Swiss wrestling festival in the ski resort of Zermatt. Set in the Pennine Alps - home to the great Matterhorn mountain - this fun-filled activity will get your energetic juices flowing while allowing you to marvel in the beautiful surroundings.


The car-free village of Zermatt is the perfect location to spend your seasonal getaway. Boasting an array of amenities, including a cinema, museum and numerous churches, there's bound to be something you'll want to get involved in even when you're not practicing on the slopes.

Swiss wrestling is a traditional national sport originating from the 13th century. It was introduced to cities throughout Switzerland in the form of wrestling festivals in the 19th century and today, stands as a popular sport - particularly in the German-speaking areas of the Alpine foothills.

A brief guide to European après ski

While it's obviously important to consider the quality of the skiing on offer at each resort when deciding on a destination for your winter sports holiday, it's also worth bearing in mind that you're going to need something to do once the slopes close for the evening. For this reason, you may want to spare a thought for the après ski scene offered in each destination before making your final choice, and with a little research, you'll quickly discover that this can vary greatly from resort to resort.

For instance, if you're looking for a young and lively crowd that likes to party then you might want to think about booking a trip to St Anton in the Tyrol region of Austria. Considered by many to be the après ski capital of the world, it is home to legendary bars and nightclubs such as the Krazy Kanguruh and Mooserwirt, which attract revellers from all over the globe.

Looking for the perfect New Year's ski break? Espace Killy has you covered

While it may seem like only yesterday that 2014 began, the reality is that the summer holidays are now behind us, which means it's time to start looking forward to the winter. This is great news for all snow lovers, as it means there are just a few short months until Europe's ski resorts reopen - and there's no better time to visit the Alps than over the festive period.

Naturally, it's always a good idea to plan a ski trip well in advance, which is why now is the perfect time to start thinking about where to spend New Year's Eve. If you're looking for a resort that has it all, then you may want to consider one of the many fantastic snowspots that are dotted around France's famous Espace Killy ski area.

Top tips for the perfect romantic ski break

With breathtaking mountain views, luxurious spas and plenty of soft snow to throw to roll around in or throw playfully at your partner, it's easy to see how romance can easily blossom while on a ski trip in the Alps. Indeed, love is very much in the air at many of Europe's top winter sports resorts, so if you're looking for a passionate weekend away with your other half then heading to the mountains could be just what your relationship needs.

However, it's worth bearing in mind that nor all ski trips are the same, which is why you'll need to do a little planning to make sure your trip is as romantic as possible.

The best spas in Val Thorens

While skiing holidays provide a fantastic opportunity to get some exercise and experience a few thrills and spills, they are also fantastic for those who want to get a little rest and relaxation. In fact, you could say they offer the perfect balance between action and serenity, and many of Europe's top resorts are well equipped to make sure that all visitors get both of these things in equal measure.

Indeed, many ski resorts in the Alps are as famous for their spas as they are for their slopes, so if you're looking for a great way to wind down and recharge your batteries after a day of downhill fun then a visit to one of these is just what you need. In fact, by spending a little time relaxing in a hot tub or being worked over by a masseuse, you'll be able to help your body recover from any fatigue it may be feeling following an intense skiing session, and are therefore likely to get much more enjoyment from your trip.
