Austrian ski Resorts

Austria boasts many ski resorts that are suitable for any type of skier or snowboarder. Alpine scenery and traditional Austrian charm is ever-present throughout Austrian ski resorts, making for a magical ski holiday.

Austrian ski resorts are generally not as high as French resorts, so if you are looking for an early or late-season holiday it would be best to check out the resort’s snow reports and history before booking. However, this is potentially the only low-point, as Austrian ski holidays never fail to impress. Whether it is because of the spectacular scenery, or the energetic après-ski, you will definitely love an Austrian ski holiday.

Ski areas in Austria

The Arlberg Ski Circus is the most well-known ski area in Austria. It links St. Anton, St. Christoph, Lech and Zurs, whilst providing excellent skiing and legendary après-ski. Meanwhile, the Europa Ski Region incorporates Kaprun and Zell am See. These resorts contain excellent snow-sure skiing including runs on the Kitzsteinhorn Glacier, whilst also boasting beautiful towns. Other areas include the Zillertal Superski Area, which combines Mayrhofen and Finkenburg, whilst the Ski Welt Area links Soll, Scheffau and Ellmau.

Conditions in Austria

During the main season, conditions are great for all types of skiers. High ski areas that get the best of the snow include Sölden, St Anton, Lech, Hintertux, Kaprun and Obergurgl. However lower ski resorts at the start and end of the season are at risk of a lack of snow. It is recommended to check weather forecasts if booking in these periods of the season.

Austrian Apres-ski

Without a doubt, Austria has the best après-ski in the world. Mooserwirt and Krazy Kanguruh in St Anton are notoriously known as the party central of the universe. If you’ve never experienced après in Austria, be prepared for dancing on tables in your ski boots, shots served by the metre and beers sold in steins. 

Even in the small Austrian villages you will find good après-ski bars with a friendly, unique atmosphere. To discover the best après, visit St Anton, Ischgl and Mayrhofen. Read more about where to go in our après-ski guide.
