At MoaAlm, in the Austrian Alps of East Tirol, we are constantly challenging our guests in the winter to think beyond the ski resort and look at the other ways of enjoying the
Maybe we should all look at the Winter Olympics as our motivation. There are so many inspiring athletes competing in South Korea. Chloe Kim, a composed 17yr old that clearly dominated the women’s
snowboard halfpipe. The other athlete who we find remarkable is Noriaki Kasai. This Japanese ski jumper became the first athlete to compete in eight Winter Olympics. At 45 years old, he has
already said that he wants to compete in the 2026 Olympics.
Now... we are not suggesting that we should all hurl ourselves down a ski jump as an introduction to Alpine events or attempt a back to back 1080 on a snowboard... but we are suggesting that you

These are our favourite 5 activities at MoaAlm, away from the slopes, during the Wintertime. Not all would be considered an Olympic event, but all are great ways of being ‘relaxingly active’,

What was once a necessity for survival, a house of snow built as an essential shelter from the elements, has now become a MoaAlm winter adventure. With engineering challenges, an understanding of
snow conditions and a weird passion for digging, every season we aim to build the ultimate igloo! These things are better done in groups and in close proximity to a hot beverage and a slice of
We are all about releasing the inner child at WearActive. Sledging (or Rodeling in German) is a way of travelling, while laughing or screaming. Just like a toddler on a park slide for the first
time. Select your Rodel, drag it to the start point, then visualise your tactics. Maybe you are considering racing, or just taking a moment to enjoy the scenery. This is all part of the downhill
adventure. From the front door at MoaAlm, we have a 3km track, specifically designed as a family friendly ‘Rodel’ route. If you have watched the Luge at the Olympics, take it back a few degrees.
All in one Lycra suits are not for everyone!
