Ski areas in Austria

You’ll have plenty of options when it comes to a winter break in Austria, and the fact that many of the major ski areas are linked together only serves to add to the appeal. Head for the Arlberg region and you can sample the linked resorts of St Anton, St Christoph, Lech, Zürs and Zug (amongst others) thanks to a modern gondola system, with the huge Ski Welt area providing nearly 300km of piste. That’s not even the largest linked network in Austria either so whether you are a beginner who has never been on piste before, or an expert who wants to tackle legendary runs like Hahnenkamm, it’s a nation that is sure to deliver.

Apres-Ski

The après-ski is a major selling point when it comes to Austria, offering fantastic value for money and great variety after a day on the slopes. Expect to find plenty of live music, fantastic food and drink, and the opportunity to embrace local cultures – particularly if you manage to book your trip to tie in with one of the many local festivals taking place throughout the ski season.

Ski Accommodation

Many of Austria’s top ski resorts have developed around traditional villages rather than being made specifically to cater for the market, so expect to find lots of quaint little hotels that showcase traditional Austrian architecture. You’ll also find plenty of chalets for groups or larger families, whilst there are also modern hotel options for those who want a touch more luxury during their time away.
