MoaAlm Mountain Retreat has comfortable single, double, twin, or triple rooms all with en-suite bathrooms. The rooms are stylishly decorated and spacious. The sizes vary up to 24 square meters. All rooms have an en-suite private bathroom and stunning views.

Some have balconies but not all. All rooms can be made up of one double or two single beds. Some rooms are also available as triples. After an active day in the outdoors, you can enjoy the astonishing view from the sunny terrace or relax in the living room, enjoy a drink at the bar, curl up on the sofa with a magazine or book, or enjoy a meal at the shared dining table.

The in-house yoga studio has a panoramic mountain view and is the perfect place for an active start of the day with some energizing yoga or a relaxing session of Restorative yoga in the afternoon. In the morning, the sunrise fills the room with energy and the late afternoon turns the mountains pink.

Program

MoaAlm is situated at 1800 meters and is the perfect place to relax and get away from it all. This retreat is the perfect holiday for single travelers, families, or groups of friends. There is something to do for everyone. Some like to participate in the morning yoga and spend the day snowboarding in the resort while others join the guided snowshoe hikes. At the end of the day, you will all come together over a delicious plant-based meal.

Yoga

MoaAlm offers a one-hour yoga class with a certified instructor on five days of the week. You are very welcome to join whether you have never done yoga before or you are a regular practitioner. The classes are always tailored to individual needs. Your yoga teacher teaches an energizing yoga class in the mornings and occasionally teaches a Restorative yoga or inversion session in the afternoon. We also offer a daily inversion class or assisted self practice each evening.

Typical day

MoaAlm Mountain Retreat understands that every guest and every day is different. The benefit of small groups is that you can adapt, discuss, and personalise each day. Some will prefer to snowboard 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 to not hit the pistes. It makes the discussion around the dinner table much more interesting as you’ve all had your own days of adventure. However, a typical week might look like this:

Day 1

Arrival to your mountain home from home, MoaAlm. Welcome drink and a chat over dinner about your weekly activity preferences.

Day 2

Morning yoga class looking out at the sunrise from behind the mountains before breakfast, followed by a snowboard from MoaAlm to the piste for a day of orientation. Time to relax back at the house in the late afternoon before dinner is served.

Day 3

Today could look like you having breakfast followed by a fresh powder run down to the chair lift of the GG-resort. There could be a day cruising on the pistes or maybe an apres ski drink in the village before being driven back up to MoaAlm for late afternoon cake and a soak in the hot tub.

Day 4

There could be poor visibility up high so you decide to join the guided snowshoe hike down the valley through the forest. There will be an early evening toboggan followed by a Restorative yoga session.

Day 5

There will be 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 will be at one of the restaurants in the village.

Day 6

If you’ve never tried cross-country skiing before, then take the opportunity to join a beginner’s cross-country ski group guaranteed to make you laugh out loud! Dinner will be at the house in the evening.

Day 7

Friday comes around all too quickly but you make the most of it with a day working on your off piste boarding. Final evening meal at the house with new friends!

Day 8

This will be your departure day.

Included excursions

MoaAlm Mountain Retreat offers daily yoga in a panoramic mountain studio alongside guided outdoor activities on five days of the week. The activities include snow shoeing, winter hiking, tobogganing, cross-country skiing, and snowboarding.

Retreat location

Your home away from home will be MoaAlm Mountain Retreat in Kals am Grossglockner, Austria. MoaAlm Mountain Retreat is a secluded location at 1800 meters above sea level; just three km above the farming community of Kals am Grossglockner in the middle of Hohe Tauern National Park.

From the house, you can snowboard down to the ski resort and at the end of the day, MoaAlm will pick the snow up at the bottom of the ski slopes with the jeep to drive everybody back up to MoaAlm. MoaAlm’s three-kilometer driveway serves as the local tobogganing track in winter, normal cars cannot drive up and down to the location at MoaAlm. If you are traveling by car, you can park your car at the parking lot down at the bottom of the driveway and MoaAlm will pick you up with the jeep or the skidoo.

Kals

Being one of the most snow-sure regions of the Alps, Kals is a perfect place to snowboard. The GG-resort offers 40 km of pistes that are suitable for snowboarders 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 specialties.
