Skiing in Alpbach
2012 marked the formation of the Ski Juwel area when Alpbach linked with Auffach in the Wildschonau region.
The local area is situated on the Wiedersbergerhorn above Inneralpbach and on the opposite side of Inneralpbach are the Schatzberg slopes which link to the Auffach-Wildschonau area. These areas have great intermediate terrain that will keep satisfied for the week.
Alpbach is best suited for beginners as its village level slopes are nursery slopes. Once beginner’s have built their confidence there are gentle blue pistes on Wiedersberger that are a great progression from the nursery slopes.
For advanced skiers, the area doesn’t have many options on piste but you can choose to hire a guide and explore off-piste areas like the descents at the back of the Widersberger Horn.
The ski area also has 3 snow parks that cater for all abilities.
Snow conditions in Alpbach
