Five Ski Resorts To Consider When Planning A Trip To Austria This Winter


Here are five resorts to consider when planning ski holidays in Austria: all via Inghams

Alpbach: Located in the small but beautiful village in the Austrian Tryol, Alpbach combines tradition, culture and outdoor adventure. Whether you are there for the landscape or for the slopes, this resort seems to have something for skiiers of all levels and interests.

Arlberg Area: Often referred to as “the birthplace of skiing”, Arlberg is the perfect set of slopes for intermediate and advanced skiiers. If you are a beginner, you can still find a few slopes to run, but you are better off staying at a more beginner-friendly mountain. The area has two parts: St Anton and St Christoph and Stuben, with a bus transfer available.

Ellmau: The village of Ellmau is located between the Wild Emperor mountains and the Kitzbühel Alps. Ellmau makes it easy for you to go into the nearby town, by providing a regular bus service that takes you straight there. There are a variety of slope levels here so don’t worry if you are a newby to the ski scene.

Filzmoos: This resort is ideal for the avid skier who plans on spending all day hitting the slopes. The resort itself is huge, which means the slopes are rarely crowded and you won’t have to worry about bumping into other skiiers. If you want a bit more culture, luckily Filzmoos is located right between the Bischofsmutze and Dachstein mountains and is a perfect example of a quintessential Austrian village.

Igls: The great thing about this ski resort is its proximity to the city center. If you love skiing but also want to experience local life and have a traditional beer or two, Ski Igls is only a short ride away from Innsbruck, a small city rich in history and culture.
