December 23, 2014 | Solos Holidays



Join fellow snow sports enthusiasts on a sociable ski break with Solos Holidays – including a price reduction for a New Year Austrian escape

Whether you’re a single skier or snowboarder seeking company on the slopes, or someone whose love of the mountains simply isn’t shared by your nearest and dearest, it’s still possible to have fun on the piste this season. Single travel specialist Solos Holidays offers an array of sociable ski trip solutions – spanning Austria, Bulgaria, Italy and Switzerland – that blend companionable days on the mountain (and evenings sharing stories!) with the assurance of an accompanying Solos tour leader, on hand throughout the week to assist or advise as required.

As with every Solos holiday, each ski trip has been carefully created with the needs of the independent-spirited single traveller in mind. Solos understands that everyone is different: whilst some customers enjoy doing everything as a group, there will be others who prefer to go it alone – with most appreciating the chance to do a bit of both. Solos’ ski trips also cater for a range of budgets, with prices starting from as little as £669 pp for a week in the Italian Dolomites

Departing 10 & 31 January, this great-value holiday is based in the cosy village of Dimaro, conveniently located to give single skiers easy access to the vast ski area of the Val di Sole (Sun Valley). The price of £669 pp* includes BA flights (Gatwick) to Verona, transfers and seven nights’ accommodation in a single room at the family-run, three-star Hotel Dolomiti, with breakfast and dinner daily. More details here.

Other Italian ski options from Solos Holidays include the pretty resort of Folgaria. Nestled in the dramatic Trentino Alps, Folgaria is at the heart of the ‘Skitour di Forti’ – a ski circuit with one pole planted firmly in the past, where fortresses dating back to World War I dot the horizon. Departing 8 March, the price of £915 pp* includes BA flights (Gatwick) to Verona, transfers and seven nights’ accommodation in a twin or double room for single use at the three-star Club Alpino, with breakfast, dinner and afternoon tea daily. More details here.

Or make for the traditional Italian resort of Madonna di Campiglio, where excellent and extensive skiing conditions combine with a sophisticated ambience to create an unforgettable winter experience. Departing 22 March, the price of £1,149 pp* includes BA flights (Gatwick) to Verona, transfers and seven nights’ accommodation in a single room at the four-star Hotel Lorenzetti, with breakfast and dinner (with wine) daily. More details here.

Italophiles will also adore the picturesque, high-altitude resort of Santa Catarina, where the snow record is exemplary and lift queues are virtually unheard of. Departing 31 January and 14 March, the price of £1,049 pp* includes Alitalia flights (Heathrow) to Milan, transfers and seven nights’ accommodation in a twin or double room at the three-star Hotel Nordik, with breakfast and dinner daily. More details here.

Free to ski early in the New Year? Solos is offering a £150 reduction on a seven-night holiday in the friendly Austrian resort of Kirchberg, departing on 3 January – now  £999 pp. Staying at the family-run, four-star Hotel Kirchbergerhof, enjoy some of the Tyrol region’s best skiing as well as the welcoming atmosphere for which it is renowned. This trip is also available for departures on 31 January (£1,169 pp*) and 8 March (£1,149 pp*). The price includes BA flights (Gatwick) to Salzburg, transfers and seven nights’ accommodation in a single room with breakfast, dinner and a daily afternoon snack. More details here.

Also in Austria, the extensive ski area of Gasteinertal awaits exploration on a week-long holiday departing 14 March. The ‘unsung hero of the Austrian Alps’,  Bad Hofgastein’s beautifully-groomed slopes are so extensive that it’s possible never to ski the same slope twice during a seven-night stay. The price of £1,079 pp* includes BA flights (Gatwick) to Salzburg, transfers and seven nights’ accommodation in a small double room for single use at the four-star Kur and Sport Palace Hotel, with breakfast and dinner (includes wine/beer/soft drinks). More details here.

For the classic European ski holiday, it can be hard to beat Switzerland, where Solos offers a week in Adelboden – a spectacular winter arena and one of the country’s top resorts. Choose from downhill or cross-country skiing, or simply potter at your own pace along well-prepared pistes set amid stunning mountain scenery. Departing 7 February and 1 & 8 March, the price of £1,139 pp* includes BA flights (Heathrow) to Basel, transfers and seven nights’ accommodation in a single room at the three-star Hotel Waldhaus Huldi, with breakfast and dinner daily. More details here.

If affordability is high on your wish list, the well-groomed pistes and impressive snow-sure record of Bankso take some beating. Set in the foothills of the majestic Pirin Mountains, this charming Bulgarian resort also boasts a beautifully-preserved old town – now a UNESCO World Heritage site – with a vibrant après ski scene. Departing 23 January, 22 February & 22 March, the price of £899 pp* includes BA flights (Heathrow) to Sofia, transfers and seven nights’ accommodation in a single room at the four-star Hotel Lion Bankso, with breakfast and dinner daily. More details here.

*Prices also include a welcome drink and information meeting, and the services of an accompanying Solos Tour Leader. Equipment hire, lift pass and ski school (if required) are extra.
