Looking to use my points this coming Spring to take my kids somewhere for skiing during their school break. Was thinking maybe even Europe. We usually do Colorado. Anyone know of any good spots for this in Europe where there is a Marriott property? Or any other different ideas. Thanks.
The fact sheet for the Linz, Austria Courtyard notes there are two ski areas close by.
The second ski area looks pretty nice and is only 15.5 miles from the hotel. Granted, I know nothing about skiing but do love Austria!
Austria is a beautiful country! You could combine some skiing with a few days in Salzburg (there used to be a Ren there, looks now like it may be a Radisson) or Durnstein or to the Salzkammergut (a lot of people stay in St. Wolfgang and ski somewhere close by) or Vienna.
The only Marriotts are in Graz, Linz, and Vienna.
The Munich Marriott's site says that the Zugspitze is just under 50 miles away. I guess that would be a pretty exiting mountain to ski!
I am not much of a skier, but New Hilton is right, Austria has always been good to me.
Likewise, I have spent many a trip in Munich and South in Garmisch, (One of my favorite hotels is no longer a Marriott Ren., The Rieirsee}
Please see the pictures of the Zugspitzer, it is the highest point in Germany and exciting for the all in the family! This place is very American family friendly! The Passion play is held nearby, and there is much to do in addition to skiing.
If you need more information please just email me. I spent 6 Christmas's in this area and I can't wait to go back1
Have a great trip!
