    Great success

    New to the brochure - or rather a return to Achensee after a few years, and a new hotel. I chose this holiday because I wanted to see what the area looks like in proper winter conditions, having been here many years ago in winter (no snow) and summer (yes, snow). The hotel was a real find.

    What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

    That skating technique is not just a theoretical possibility but actually might be practical, given a few more years.

    What did you think of your group leader?

    First rate, vastly experienced and able to teach.

    Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

    This is a specific holiday for experienced classic skiers who want to improve their skills and begin to learn skating technique. Make sure that's what you want.

    Is there anything else you would like to add?

    Achenkirch would be good to use as a base for summer walking once again, since I see there are now only a few Austrian holidays in the summer brochure. I love the location, and I remember the sheer decadent pleasure of the walks when they ended with a boat trip on the lake.

    Austrian Tyrol Skate Level 2

    A familiar mix of coaching and touring in a new location in the Austrian Tyrol.

    What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

    Getting the hang of skiing uphill without taking breaks.

    What did you think of your group leader?

    Eric combines excellent coaching with a good sense of humour to make a superb all-round holiday.

    Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

    It is usually possible to ski without a backpack provided the weather is reasonable and you have enough pockets for a few small items.

    Is there anything else you would like to add?

    The hotel seems a particularly good choice for single travellers, as the single rooms were spacious and did not incur an extra charge. The food in the hotel is plentiful and very traditional Austrian thus providing plenty of calories; those looking for "healthy" options might be disappointed.

    Achenkirch classic and skate skiing

    I came home tired but exhilarated. It was a great way to refresh and improve my classic skiing. The introduction to skate skiing was a bonus and great fun too.

    What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

    Actually getting the hang of skate skiing for a few moments.

    What did you think of your group leader?

    Eric was wonderful. His expertise, patience and good humour was the perfect blend to form a cohesive and friendly group. Everybody learned a lot and had fun doing it.

    Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

    Exercise before you go. Triceps and sartorial muscles need a good workout.

    Austrian Skate 2 Tyrol CYD160227

    Fantastic holiday. Eric Woolley is a great leader and teacher and full of energy. Our whole group was really fun and we all got on so well. The Tyrol is an amazing place to ski. Hotel is super comfortable with sauna and spa.

    What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

    Steinberg to Achenkirch - I liked it so much that I skated it four times!

    What did you think of your group leader?

    Eric is expert at inspiring everyone to improve their technique whilst having fun at the same time. I really appreciated that on our free day, Eric's day off, he still skied with anyone that wanted to. I just wanted to ski as much as I could and explore the area so I really appreciated Eric going the extra mile in that way.

    Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

    Get really fit before you go on this holiday!

    Is there anything else you would like to add?

    The skate ski hire was great as all the skis, boots and poles were new and good quality. Worth Exodus considering putting on a skate 3 holiday for next year. I think a lot of us would be interested.

    Skate Level 1 week

    A fantastic holiday. I really enjoyed it. Everything was good - the hotel, our leader, the people in our group and the snow. I was a bit nervous about the holiday but I came away feeling I could skate fairly well, not for long distances but at least close to the approved style!

    What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

    The last day when we skied 9 km down from Steinberg to Achenkirch in sunshine on good tracks through beautiful scenery and I skated most of the way except for a bit of walking up the hills when my legs gave out!

    What did you think of your group leader?

    Eric is a great teacher, knowledgeable, patient and generally able to explain things so I can understand them, as well as making it all lot of fun.

    Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

    You will enjoy it a lot more and progress much further if you get fit beforehand. Although I was generally in the middle of the group, I found I needed to alternate skating with walking as my legs gave out after too long a stretch which was disappointing.

    Is there anything else you would like to add?

    The hotel is excellent. Even the single rooms were spacious, the food was good and they offered free extras such as a candle light walk, inner tube sledging and curling but the WiFi in my room was awful.

    Skate Level 1 week

    An excellent week in a lovely location. A good mix of tuition and skiing around the local area and I really felt I made progress throughout the week. The hotel is nice with lovely food.

    What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

    The last day skiing back from Steinberg to Achenkirch on lovely tracks and in beautiful sunshine. Also towards the end of the week feeling that I had got the hang of skating!

    What did you think of your group leader?

    Eric is a great teacher and took time to help each member of the group improve their skating technique.

    Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

    Enjoy some of the optional extras offered by the hotel. We had a candlelit walk followed by gluhwein, and also went curling on the afternoon of our day off.

    Achensee ski skating holiday 2016. level 2

    Just returned from one of my best skiing holidays ever and i have been skiing for over 45 years. Can't get the memories out of my mind . Eric Woolley was a great leader and has a great sense of humour.

    What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

    mastering the skating technique

    What did you think of your group leader?

    highly recommended. Many good tips for racing. Inspired to race one of the famous marathon ski races .

    Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

    If you want a change from downhill skiing and are of reasonable fitness, ski skating makes for a great holiday. It is energetic but relaxing and there are none of those ski queues and crowded slopes so often found in downhill skiing

    Is there anything else you would like to add?

    A level 3 ski skate course would be of interest
