Top 5 Ski resort when you are retired

Posted by: hubert 2 years, 8 months ago

Finding the ideal ski resorts when you are retired can be a bit of a struggle as there isnt a lot of information out there regarding this topic. 

We tried to compile the perfect list for you so you can enjoy the right holidays in the right resorts for you and your family:


Chamonix

Chamonix is ​​first and foremost the charm of the Mont Blanc.

It is the most famous ski domain in the world, and more importantly, it is quite suitable for retirees. A mythical mountain town and lively ski resort offering unmissable visits such as the Aiguille du Midi, the Sea of ​​Ice, lakes, waterfalls and gorges with breathtaking views. In the village, you can take walks through the busy streets to discover the rich heritage or opt to ride on the tourist train for a guided tour. Bars and small restaurants offering the delicious gastronomy of the Chamonix Valley are available throughout the village, but there is also a cinema and a casino along with stops, galore.

Kitzbuhel

Featuring about 8,000 inhabitants and an area of about 58 sqkm, Kitzbühel combines all advantages of a small town, characterised by its idyllic position in the heart of the Kitzbühel Alps. “Chizbuhel” has been mentioned for the first time in the 12th century and its name derives from “Chizzo”, a Bavarian clan, and “Buhel”, which indicates the position of the locality on a hill. However, a lively past and a 700-year history characterises the small town and its surroundings. The charm of this cute resort will definitly make you feel like you just arrived home! 

In summer the Alpine Flower Garden Kitzbüheler Horn is one of the most popular destinations. It offers 300 species of alpine flowers in an area of 20,000 sqm, and a visit can perfectly be combined with a drive on the Kitzbüheler Horn panoramic road. Furthermore, Kitzbühel has got some 500 km of hiking trails to offer. But the leisure activities on offer include four golf courses, several bathing lakes, the only curling hall in Austria and some 750 km of cycling and mountain bike trails. Those who prefer less active holidays might enjoy a shopping tour or a Cappuccino in the centre of town.


Selva

The resort of Selva (AKA Val Gardena) is set in the Sella Ronda in a perfect position to take advantage of this impressive ski area and is one of Italy’s most popular ski resorts offeromg splendid views of the Dolomites. The resort offers a good choice of activites for every ages but seniors will be the most spoiled with choices.

The circular tour of the Sella Ronda can easily be covered in a day by even lower level intermediates and if you don’t deviate from the main route it can be done in 3 hours. The circuit includes Corvara, Arabba, Canazei and Selva.

The village of Selva is located at 1565m with a ski range of between 1005m to 2520 m and remains one of our favourites in this area in which to be based because the local slopes have long wooded runs back to the village. The local pass covers 175 km of piste with 30% blue, 60% red and 10% black and covers skiing in Selva and Alpe Di Siusi only , but upgrading to the full pass opens up over 433 km and cover 179 lifts and allows you to take on the Sella Ronda circular tour

iSki offers all of the best hotels which range from 4* to 3* mainly all Half Board, a small selection of apartments and a limited selection of fully catered chalets, sleeping between 9 to 14 people. For chalets, we strongly recommend early booking, as chalets in Italy are very limited and demand is high.

Selva was in days gone by, part of Austria and the village still retains a Tyrolean charm with attractive church and buildings.

We continually get great feed back from Clients about the mountain restaurants here, many say the food is excellent and great value compared to other well known ski areas.
