Ski Holidays Austria

Ski Holidays to Austria

If you’re looking to ski in The Alps, then Austria’s resorts are a bit more affordable than their French counterparts, and tend to be more suitable for beginners and intermediates. Austria’s popularity has grown a lot over recent years because of its beautiful, traditional resorts, and Snowfinders have some great deals across the country. The resorts tend to be lower than the French ski stations, however, bear in mind that you are further north and east - that means greater snowfalls at lower elevations. 

Advanced skiers will love teh resorts of St Anton, Ischgl, and Solden. For intermediates we would recommend Saalbach, Lech, and Soll. Beginners will be in their element in Alpbach, Obergurgl, and Kuntai. If it is apres ski you seek then nowhere does it better than Austria (including the smaller resorts) but we'd choose Ischgl, St Anton, Kitzbuhel, Saalbach, Kirchberg, Mayrhofen amongst others. Virtually all resorts offer alpine charm so you'll be spoilt for choice here.
