Responsible tourism: Ski touring and splitboard course in Austria

Environment

MoaAlm is situated at 1800m, it is 2km up the mountain from the settlement of Taurer. We are living in the middle of the national Park Hohe Tauren. We love the nature that surrounds us and we do everything in our power to sustain it.

Some days may involve carrying a picnic on a tour - guests will be actively involved in carrying out waste. We often take out more waste than our own.

Our water is supplied directly from a mountain spring and we use water saving tabs and shower heads in most rooms. All the cleaning product we use to keep the house and our linen and towels clean are biodegradable.

Our heating system is a brand new 'eco' pellet burning system. The P4 pellet system has won many international quality awards in EU and USA, the most prestigious of all are the Blue Angel and the Austrian Ecolabel.

Even in winter our south facing position can also provide supplementary energy from our solar bank.

Community

Guests will eat out for lunch on occasion and one evening at local recommended restaurants.

The area also has an excellent ski school and advanced mountain guiding network of instructors that guests may choose to take advantage of. All fresh food and drink and will be sourced locally where possible.

We will be employing a team of 4 full time staff who will receive a generous package of accommodation, food, ski pass and salary. Opportunities will also be available through our staff incentive scheme to participate in training courses annually. This scheme is in place to encourage staff to make this a rewarding full time lifestyle choice that can be sustainable rather than just a seasonal short term option.

Local tradesmen have been involved in the renovation of MoaAlm and we have pleased to find a number of high quality, locally produced materials to use in the refurbishment. These tradesmen are highly skilled particularly in mediums of wood, stone and locally produced felt.

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your vacation?


A great group of snowboarders and skiers with the flexibility to go to different parts of the mountain every day in search of powder (which we found)! I also enjoyed the mix of touring and free riding adjusted to the preferences of the group. Plus the chance to try out cross country skiing on the last day was great! Ending with a soak in the hot tub as the sun sets is pretty special too.

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?


To enjoy this you'll need to be reasonably fit (as a skier at least), as the days are quite long. I had done a little bit of ski touring before but not too much so it was a good level for a relative beginner. Everything else was as or better than I expected! The local ski shop has all the touring kit you could need to hire at a high standard, would recommend hiring light touring skis and any safety equipment you need there, especially if you need to pay to bring them on the plane.

3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?


Use of local facilities and guides and local produce definitely does benefit the local market.

4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?


Great vacation, the right mix of free ride, touring and luxury which I was looking for. Food was amazing, I have a new found love for vegetarian food, as is Moa Alm, a great place to stay and decompress! Plus it really did feel like a family atmosphere.

Hi Rachel - thanks very much indeed for leaving this lovely and detailed review for us. We are chuffed to bits that you had such a good time and really hope that you will return in the future for another touring adventure... or just one of our standard winter/summer vacations! :o) Thanks again, Polly
