Ski & Snowboard Yoga Retreat with Liz Corwin
Are you a ski bunny or powder-chasing snowboarder? Not into snow sports but looking for a rejuvenating winter wonderland escape?
Invigorate your body and mind with an unforgettable 3-day weekend of yoga, meditation, breathtaking scenery, optional skiing and snowboarding, log fires, massages, delicious meals, hot chocolates, homemade smores, new friends, chill-axing, and snow, snow, snow in the gorgeous and wild Austrian Alps. Even if you’re not into snow sports, come relax, restore, treat yourself to a massage or body treatment and simply recharge with a walk in the winter wonderland. Decide for yourself in this ‘choose-your- own-adventure’ restorative weekend retreat.
This 3-day mini-retreat will combine your love of winter activities with the rejuvenating benefits of yoga to stretch out those aching muscles and allow the adventures of the day to settle as you wind down for the night. The retreat will begin Thursday evening with a playful Vinyasa style class to decompress after a long day of traveling from near & far. The next 3 days will offer a range of activities including morning & evening yoga classes, daily skiing and snowboarding, secluded trails and nature walks, tranquil meditation alcoves, ample après-ski time, and plenty of time to simply enjoy the serenity of this Austrian getaway. For breakfast, lunch and dinner you will be spoiled with certified organic vegetarian whole food and of course unlimited hot chocolate.
You will also have the opportunity to participate in evening bedtime stories with Liz on yoga philosophy or simply find a private couch to curl up and get lost in your favorite book. Whatever you’re looking for, this weekend retreat will give you the flexibility to choose your own perfect mix of adventure and relaxation. Come be swept away into your own winter escape!

Located on the Tyrolean Fernpass, in the north-west of Austria, close to the German border the AlpenRetreat is easily reached via the Fernpassstrasse B179 (E532).
At the top of the Fernpass (Fernpasshöhe) there is a petrol station named "Dolle". Opposite of it on the other side of the street is a roadside restaurant (Fernpaß Rast), a red building, and a big yellow building (the former Fernpass hotel). Follow the small street between the restaurant and the yellow house for about 200m and you have reached the AlpenRetreat.
Places connected by the Fernpassstraße
Füssen – Reutte – Heiterwang – Lermooser Tunnel – Fernpass (AlpenRetreat) – Nassereith. At the border-tunnel in Füssen the Fernpassstrasse connects with the federal highway 310 and the A 7. In Nassereith it merges into the B 189 along the Inntal (Inn valley) in direction south-east towards Telfs and in south-west direction towards Imst.
In winter it is compulsory in Austria to have winter tires on your car. Although the Fernpassstrasse is well maintained and therefore easily accessible, sometimes the streets can still be covered in snow. In exceptional cases snow chains may be required (very rarely). If you are coming with a rental car, make sure it is equipped with winter tires (the rental company is obliged to provide this).
