About our winter holiday

Because we love the mountains and everything they have to offer we would like to make the most out of each day by offering daily snowshoe hiking, cross country skiing and the chance to experience  the surrounding nature. We always combine this adventure with morning yoga, suited to all levels under the guidance of our in house motivator. If skiing and snowboarding is your preference the we are in close proximity to the piste.

 

If you are an adult wanting to learn to ski or an experienced snowboarder/skier wanting to do some free riding and touring, then check out our theme weeks.

Program

We have no set daily schedule. We understand that every guest and every day is different. The benefit of small groups is that we can adapt, discuss, and personalise each day. Some will prefer to ski in the resort most days and take the opportunity to try something new on one day, whilst others in the same week will choose the alternative activities on offer daily and choose not to ski the pistes. It makes the discussion around the dinner table much more interesting as we've all had our own days of adventure. However, a typical week might look like this:

 

  • Day 1: Arrival to your mountain home from homes, 'MoaAlm'. Welcome drink and a chat over dinner about your weekly activity preferences.
  • Day 2: Might look like: Yoga looking out at the sun rise from behind the mountains before breakfast; followed by a snowshoe hike from MoaAlm to a mountain hut. Time to relax back at the house and enjoy the sun set from our terrace before dinner is served and tomorrow's plans are proposed.
  • Day 3: May be breakfast followed by a fresh powder run down to the chair lift of the GG-resort. A day cruising on the pistes. Maybe an après ski drink in the village before being driven back up to MoaAlm for late afternoon snacks and dinner at the house.
  • Day 4: Could be poor visibility up high so we head down the valley and take a winter hike trail through the trees. An early evening toboggan, followed by dinner at the house.
  • Day 5: No alternative activity today so you can head to the piste for a day, take the snowshoes out on one of the marked trails or improve your cross-country ski technique. Dinner out this evening is either at one of the restaurants in the village or you could decide to participate in MoaAlm's weekly tobogganing night event and order from our cafe menu.
  • Day 6: Never tried it before, then take the opportunity to join a beginner's cross-country ski group... guaranteed to make you laugh out loud! In the late afternoon we have drinks around the camp fire followed by dinner at the house.
  • Day 7: Friday comes around all to quickly but you make the most of it with a full day in-resort skiing the freshly groomed pistes. Final evening meal at the house with new friends!

Skiing & snowboarding

Being one of the most snow-sure regions of the Alps, Kals is a perfect place to ski and snowboard. The GG-resort offers 40km of pistes that are suitable for skiers of all ages and with all levels of experience. There are no waiting lines for the lifts and the many restaurants on the slopes serve local specialities.

If you are moderate skier you can ski down to the chairlift in Grossdorf directly from MoaAlm. Never skied before? Don't worry we drive down and up every day to take our guests from/to MoaAlm.  

Prices for lift passes, equipment rental and ski lessons are generally lower than in most other parts of the Alps. Check-out the GG-resort website for details or contact us if you have any questions.


Alternative activities

We also offer alternate guided activities to allow you to really get the most out of your mountain stay. Winter hikes, cross country skiing, snowshoeing tours, backcountry tours (not included in price), ice climbing (not included in price) and tobogganing could be part of our weekly program. We have a bunch of sledges and a selection of cross-country skiing and snow shoeing equipment free to use at MoaAlm! 

Food

At MoaAlm we love food! There is no better start of the day than a nutritious breakfast. We serve fresh fruits, oats & cereals, bread, eggs and much more. After an active day in the outdoors you can warm up with a cup of tea and enjoy our freshly baked cake - you've deserved it! At dinner our chef always surprises us with a delicious meal made with lots of love and attention. We believe that food tastes best when it grows close-by: our ingredients are local, fresh and organic whenever possible. Read more about our tasty meals.

Yoga

For those interested in yoga, our certified yoga teacher offers a morning yoga class on 5 days of the week. You are very welcome to join whether you have never done yoga before or you are a regular practitioner - classes are always tailored to individual needs. Our yoga teacher specialises in Hatha yoga and occasionally teaches a Restorative or Yin yoga session in the afternoon or a guided meditation on request. In our fully equipped in-house yoga studio we have yoga mats and props, so you only need to bring some comfortable clothes that allow you to move in them. Read more about yoga at MoaAlm.
