These ski trips aren’t only about the slopes; they take in the resorts’ stunning backdrops and everything from mountain art to romantic railways
Combine zooming down the slopes with a week of language lessons at the Apple Languages school in Kitzbühel, a medieval mountain village full of chic shops and cosy cafes and one of the most famous locations in the skiing world. The small school’s director is a former ski instructor who often joins students up the mountain, where they can head every afternoon, as the German beginners’ lessons finish at 12.30pm. The bus stop for the lifts is opposite the school. Kitzbühel is the venue for the Hahnenkamm men’s downhill World Cup race each year.
