Altitude is the World’s No.1 Alpine Comedy Festival. A truly unique event that fuses the adrenaline rush of a ski holiday with the madcap thrills of a top-notch comedy festival. Truly outrageous comedians that normally play arenas around the world descend upon the tiny chocolate box surroundings of Mayrhofen, Austria, one of Europe’s most beautiful ski resorts, for 5 nights to play intimate sets that have the air of entertaining in their front room. Whether you’re a veteran Altituder or new to the mountains, you are guaranteed an amazing week of live shows, intimate performances and slope experiences like no other.
Slopes all day - laughs all night! That’s our mantra! After days spent skiing and boarding across the resort’s 655 km of piste, dining at mountain top restaurants with breathtaking views, or perhaps lounging in the resort’s plethora of spas, comedy fans get the truly amazing opportunity to see our specially picked comedians up close and personal, from the sharpest stand-up to the most innovative improv. Add to this a healthy serving of comedy stars of the future and a sprinkling of surprise treats to boot and you have the most entertaining winter sports holiday you’ll ever experience.
Camaraderie goes on in the town between audience and performer that you will see nowhere else. Isn’t it time you got your (ski)boots on and give it a look?!
Over the past decade we’ve had some of the best comedians in the world, including Eddie Izzard, John Bishop, Bill Bailey, Jimmy Carr, Tim Minchin, Micky Flanagan, Sean Lock, Jim Jefferies, Jo Brand, Al Murray, Michael Winslow, Nina Conti, Kevin Bridges, Frankie Boyle and Katherine Ryan just to name a few.
