Austria ski resorts

Skiing in Austria is all about postcard-worthy mountain villages, fun après-ski and traditional family-run hotels. The scenery is just stunning, with low (and high) rolling hills, plenty of tree-lined runs and a very modern lift system.


If you're looking for a classic ski holiday, Austria is definitely for you. Many ski areas are vast thanks to interlinked resorts such as the 305km of glorious St Anton Am Arlberg.
