Activities for a non-skier in March?

Me and my husband (the skier) will be spending 4 nights at the Hotel Edelweiss in early MArch 2012. Any suggestions for shopping/other activities for a non-skier during the day? Also, if I do decide to take ski lessons is this a good place for beginners? Thanks so much!

Have you visited the website of Gerlos (gerlos.at/en/gerlos/winter/start_winter.html) where a lot of activities are supposedly available?

Gerlos is made for skiers and winter activities .

Really just one long street - with not many shops etc.

Some nice cafes - some with winter terraces and ability to sit in the sun.

Hotel will have indoor activities .

Outdoor - winter walks - winter horse back riding tobagganing.

Gerlos sits on a high plateau - to the west connected by bus is Zell am Ziller - not extra big but some shops - scenic ride to there over a twisting roadway.

Just east is the connected village Konigsleiten - not much other tan accomodations- further east - you find Mittersill finally Zell an See if you wish for a day trip

for connection info


Gerlos good for beginners - but check most ski schools only have beginner lessons starting Sunday or Monday - usually not possible to join later.

In good weather - you may wish to consider a nice midday meal at one of the many mountain huts.

Chance to spend mountain time together - access easily done by non skier using a ski lift - single ticket -

many have sun terrace too and many visit just for views and sun.
