If you want your winter ski break to feature breathtaking scenery alongside high-quality slopes, then the Austrian resort of Kuhtai pretty much ticks all the boxes.
Located close to Innsbruck, the resort is one of Austria’s highest and provides fantastic levels of snow throughout the season.
No matter whether you are heading to the slopes for the first time, have limited experience and want to move to the next level, or are an expert looking for a challenge, there is skiing to suit all needs – although the options are more restricted when it comes to the black runs.
