Skiing in Austria
The Austrian ski resorts, for many, are a largely untapped ski area. This beautiful country has something for everyone, from tots and teens to veteran skiers. From the snow-sure pistes to the unrivalled après ski, hospitality and many off the slope activities, Austria is a skiing hotspot that should not be overlooked.
The Austrian ski season runs from December to April. Austria's Alps are skiable well into spring where deep powder can still be found off piste. The high altitude of the mountains brings about ideal snowy conditions, with the Hintertux glacier in Tirol offering a huge 365 days of skiing a year. Whether you're looking to mix it up in Arlberg, Austria's largest ski area or prefer smaller, more intimate ski resorts such as hidden gems Alpbach or Kühtai, you're bound to find something that suits in one of the country’s 426 skiing areas.
There is one word that sums up what is special about skiing in Austria and, most unfortunately, it is untranslatable. That word is "gemutlichkeit". It sums up the sense of fun, friendliness and frivolity you will encounter when holidaying here. Together the warmth of the welcome, the quality of the skiing and the energy of the après ski make an irresistible combination.
