The mountains are calling! Since I am a huge outdoor fan myself, I know what it is like, trying to find the perfect Christmas gift for someone like me. The great outdoors is where we feel at home. For us, there is no such thing as bad weather. We need to breathe the fresh mountain air, are seeking for the next magical moment or adventure. – And yes, one third of our closet is filled with sportswear.

Thus, I put together a little Christmas shopping list for outdoor enthusiasts.

Powder Alarm

A private piste solely for you and your friends: Treat yourself to exclusive and truly enjoyable early morning skiing with friends, family or colleagues on perfectly groomed pristine pistes with a substantial breakfast buffet at the 8er Alm. Incl. reserved VIP car park right next to the lift. – ca. 90 EUR per person, including ski pass.

Sunrise VIP Ticket

Savour the magical minutes between dawn and sunrise at 2,300m with an individual sunrise ski tour. After a delicious outdoor breakfast from your rucksack, you’re now full of energy and can carve your way down pristine pistes into the valley. – ca. 90 EUR per person, including ski pass.

Snow and Avalanche Awareness Workshop

Improve your knowledge and learn how to assess the snow cover and understand the terrain by means of snow profiles, stability tests and weather effects. On the LVS training search field presented by BMW you will also be trained in lifesaving avalanche rescue searching. – ca. 160 EUR per person, including ski pass.

Avalanche course: ISTA ST1

Your two-day induction course into the comprehensive ISTA Programme for the prevention of accidents in the mountains. Course inclusive of one night’s accommodation with breakfast, teaching materials, badge and ISTA certificate. – ca. 590 EUR per person, including Ski pass and accomodation.

For the ladies: Wellness Ski Tour for Body & Soul

Sense the power of the mountains on a guided Wellness Ski Tour. Conscious breathing and meditation techniques will animate body and soul. – ca. 160 EUR per person, including ski pass.

Hike and Ride

The Hike & Ride deal lets you ski on all the slopes that cannot be reached from the lift without climbing Skins.Although you’ll use the lift for faster access, you can then venture off into the world of off-piste skiing.


There are several slopes and peaks to choose from depending on the ability and motivation of your group, meaning you’ll never ski the same slope twice! We welcome any requests for slope inclinations or orientations… but be careful, there’s a serious risk of addiction! – ca. 355 EUR per Person


I hope, this list inspired you for some new Christmas gift ideas for your outdoor friend or Lover. Enjoy the beautiful holiday season in the mountains!
