The Chalet Christina in Saalbach at dusk

Chalet-Hotel Christina

The Christina is our own chalet-hotel in Saalbach village. It has a great central location, a light and airy feel and has recently been renovated to the usual Ski Miquel standard.

It has a large, open lounge with comfy sofas, a separate dining room, and the cheapest bar in town! It also has its own ski storage room, and many of the bedrooms also have balconies.

Accommodation in Saalbach is notoriously expensive, yet the Christina offers excellent value-for-money along with the wonderful chalet-hotel atmosphere that a Ski Miquel holiday is famous for.

Skiing in Bad Gastein

Why not try Bad Gastein?

Saalbach is nearly full for Winter 2023/24, so consider Bad Gastein

  • 200km of pistes
  • Beautiful village with some of the finest valley views in the Austrian Alps
  • Hospitality to match Saalbach, but with more challenging skiing, and Bad Gastein is only an hour from Saalbach
  • Natural spa town with famous thermal baths

Reviews

The whole Ski Miquel package was excellent

This was our first Ski Miquel holiday for myself and 15 year old son and certainly won't be our last, we loved the personal service of the chalet and the wonderful all round support from the team, the food was delicious and plentiful. Our room was spacious with plenty of storage available, we enjoyed many social evenings in the comfortable lounge bar with the other guests and hosts. Location is fabulous being close to the ski lift. The ski guiding was fantastic (especially Amalia) as they could show us the best pistes and restaurants on the mountains, also able to accommodate everyone's different abilities on the slopes, always happy to help or give advice about every aspect of the holiday, nothing seemed too much trouble for them and it was a relaxed welcome atmosphere.

Wonderful Ski holiday for our group

Well – after all the stresses of PCR tests, mask wearing and other Covid related challenges – it was soooooooooooo worth it! The guiding was such an amazing bonus and meant that we saw so much of the ski area. The food was great and abundant, as was the wine! Everyone was happy with their rooms and the staff were excellent and very friendly. We chose to store our skis down by the lift which saved lugging them back and forth everyday. The run up to the trip was fraught with concerns, but our trip to Hotel Christina and Saalbach was more than worth it. Thank you to Carol and your lovely team for making us so welcome and sorry to be going back home at the end!

Great half term Skiing

Great to return to the Christina again in Feb 20. Well looked after by Carol and the team, both in the chalet and whilst guiding on the mountain. This chalet is well run, clean, well located and with great food and service. Particularly enjoyed the company of a fantastic group of fellow guests. Hope to return soon.

Another Brilliant week with Ski Miquel!

A group of 26 of us have just returned from a brilliant week in Saalbach. The resort itself is great, it has a really big ski area with lots of blues and reds, nice new lifts with heated seats and toilets at most stations! Loads of nice restaurants up the mountain and plenty of choice to apres! The ski guiding is my favourite thing about Ski Miquel, it’s so well organised and makes the day completely stress free, Carol and Lewis booked our lunches so we never had an issue getting a table which as a large group was ideal! Carol and Lewis were great too, we had a really good time with them and lots of laughs but at the same time they were very professional and organised. The music quiz was a highlight of the week for us! Food was very tasty and good sized portions! We had a few dietary requirements in the group which were all handled without any issues. I would happily go back :)

The perfect hotel for a chalet style holiday

This was my first Ski Miquel chalet ski holiday and it was just wonderful. Carol is a very professional, kind and helpful manager as well as a considerate ski guide. Together with her team they provide an excellent service. The food was wonderful, the staff couldn't do enough for you, the place was comfortable and warm, the walking distance to the centre and main lift only a few minutes. We had Lewis as our ski guide and that really made our week. He was just excellent. The ski area is beautiful and large, so having someone capable, caring and professional guiding you and explaining how to best ski the slopes made such a difference. Lunch was always pre-booked and we had so many laughs and fun throughout. The dinner with tobogganing back down was a great night out - all in all it really was a fabulous week and highly recommendable.

Excellent week in Saalbach

Stayed at the Christina for a week in March. Excellent Chalet, very good food and a short walk to the main lifts out of Saalbach. Saalbach is a top resort for skiing, a huge area, good piste grooming, fast, efficient lifts and lots of good bars and restaurants on the mountain. Will be going back.

Another amazing trip with Ski Miquel

Stayed at the Chalet-Hotel Christina through Ski Miquel 17-23 March – our fifth time with this operator. The Christina is in a perfect location, 5 minutes from main Gondola but away from the hustle and bustle of pretty Saalbach. The rooms/ensuites were spacious and well appointed most with a balcony. The food and wine was of its usual high standard and the bar prices the best in Saalbach. Above all it was the Ski Miquel staff that made our trip amazing, they all went the extra mile to bring the group together: The guiding is second to none, taking us to gorgeous places for morning coffee and lunch (table pre-booked). In the evenings our host Carol kept us informed of the next day’s plan, organised quizzes and even an hysterical awards ceremony on the last night. All we had to do was ski, eat, drink and enjoy!! Exceptional value for money. So a massive thanks to Carole, Harvey, Lucy, Hannah and Milan.

Second trip with Ski Miquel

This was our second time with Ski Miquel and yet again this excellent formula managed to tick all our boxes. The Chalet was clean and comfortable; food was excellent and although there was a set menu the Staff were prepared to flex it for some of our party, who didn't like fish. Ski guiding was a must for us, as the Saalbach area is very extensive, and this allowed us to enjoy it without the need to constantly look at a map. Some great nights in the chalet with an excellent crowd and cheap bar, doing quizzes, musical charades and the nightly awards from Liam. Thanks to Carol, Harvey, Lucy, Rachel and Milan.

Best chalet holiday EVER!

The chalet is perfectly located, just 5 minutes from the ski lift. The chalet itself was brilliant, lovely dining room, large modern lounge with a bar, which encouraged guests to be social before and after dinner. The food was delicious, all three courses, breakfast and afternoon tea, good sized portions too. And lastly the chalet team led by Harvey and Carol were UNBELIEVABLE – friendly, fun, knowledgeable, great hosting in the hotel and on the slopes. Brilliantly organised, knowing exactly how to add some magic to a ski holiday. Heartily recommend the chalet and Ski Miquel. Thank you so much.

Fabulous!

We stayed in this Chalet with Ski Miquel and had a fabulous time. The chalet has a great location nice and close to the lifts and the town. The chalet is well looked after with a comfortable dining room and spacious lounge / bar with plenty of room for everyone. Ski Miquel were great! We took full advantage of the ski guiding and saw loads of the mountain thanks to Carol and Harvey. Evening meals were plentiful and tasty, and the cheeseboard a lovely way to finish off. Post dinner, the bar was always entertaining meaning we didn't ever venture back out as fun was to be had on the doorstep! A huge thank you to Carol and the team for the wonderful week. Nothing but total praise for everything!!
