About Us

Our Philosophy

As a club hotel, we specialize in creating a warm and welcoming atmosphere for guests.  We are sure you will find us approachable, friendly and committed to excellence.  We also offer helpful advice about the area for both skiers and non-skiers to help you make the most of your time here.

The ‘club concept’ means that we want you to feel as if you are ‘members’ of a special club… our aim is to help you feel comfortable and we hope you will come back time and again to ‘your home in the Tirol’.


Meet The Owners

Club Hotel Edelweiss is run by owners Peter and Alison Neurauter.  They moved to Itter in 2005 and live at the hotel with their two grown up sons Anton and Mattias.


Peter has joint Austrian and British nationality.  He is responsible for guest welfare and activity programmes at Club Hotel Edelweiss, as well as the hotel facilities.

He has managed dry ski slopes in the UK and has been director of a European specialist ski company and of the National Coaching Foundation (now called Sportscoach UK).  He was also manager of a residential activities centre in the Swiss Alps for five years. Peter has a degree in Psychology, a Master’s degree in Sports Development and various management and teaching qualifications.


Alison has worked in PR and marketing for over 20 years and has responsibility for Club Hotel Edelweiss’s marketing, administration and financial management.

She has previously worked for national and international charities as well as public and private sector organisations and has won several national awards. She has a degree in Psychology and an Advanced Professional Diploma in Public Relations.


Our Passion

Skiing is our passion, and as such we feel privileged to be living in such a great ski area with the opportunity to ski whenever we want.  We love skiing with guests whenever possible and we have no hesitation in recommending the SkiWelt for all levels of skiers.

Peter started learning to ski in Austria when he was just 3 years old, going on to become a ski instructor, coach and guide to the British Alpine Blind Squads for two Paralympics, and a Snowsport England Level 4 Coach and Tutor holding an International (IVSI) Licence.

He taught Alison to ski when they met 37 years ago and they have been skiing together ever since.


Our Staff

Our staff come from all over Europe, and live and work with us throughout the winter season.  Each member of staff contributes to the high standards of customer care offered by Club Hotel Edelweiss.  They are committed to doing an excellent job both front of house and behind the scenes and make a positive contribution to the running of the hotel.

Recruitment for our winter staff starts at the end of May.


The Making of Club Hotel Edelweiss

Peter and Alison have extensively and sympathetically renovated the hotel since buying it in 2005, updating and upgrading all areas. 

Built as a farmhouse in the 1950s, a farm shop and then a restaurant were added in the 1960s and first floor accommodation in 1974.  In 1986, the second and third floors were built and it remained a popular ‘Gasthof’ or Inn throughout the late ’80s and ’90s. 

After Peter and Alison bought the hotel and developed a new style and philosophy, they gave the hotel a new name and started their renovation programme.  Every room has since been modernised, whilst maintaining many of the beautiful traditional Tirolean features that add to the ambience of the hotel.

In 2015-16, they converted the old barn at the back of the hotel into a large wellness area which includes a sauna, infra-red cabin, relaxation area and outdoor terrace.

In 2017, the hotel took on a new look when all the wood was sandblasted and oiled and the whole facade was painted.

For future plans, watch this space!
