The Ski Club of Ireland in Kilternan is hosting Alpine Fest on 25-26 September, which will feature guest instructors from some of the best-known Austrian ski resorts.
From Tirol, there will be experts from St.Anton. From Salzburgerland, there’ll be instructors from Obertauern and Flachau, as well as from the legendary Herman Maier Ski School.
It’ll be the ideal opportunity to get your ski legs back ahead of a winter holiday on the slopes of Austria – or to strap skis on for the first time: either way, you’ll be in expert hands.
And you can’t ski without après ski! There will have live music outdoors, each afternoon, including Ireland’s favourite après ski band, The Harleys, making this a fully rounded alpine experience right here on your doorstep.
Appetite for the Alps
Over 90,000 Irish skiers have missed their ski holidays over the pandemic with a pent up demand to get back on piste.
Bookings are well up across the ski market and indications are that the market will kick off well before Christmas, as resorts open early – depending on ski conditions.
Austria has been voted Best Winter Ski Destination from Ireland for years.
While other countries such as France, Switzerland, Italy and Andorra are popular within the ski market, Austria remains No.1 on the Irish market.
