Perfectly prepared pistes, deep snow slopes and great snow-sure skiing on the glaciers: you are sure to get your money's worth in the winter sports paradise of Austria! Whether on skis or snowboard, beginner or professional, you are guaranteed pure winter fun while on your Austrian ski holiday. Austria is known as the number one Après-ski location and can boast with the ultimate party hotspots.
Carinthia: Carinthia doesn’t just offer sun-spoilt, excellently prepared pistes, but is also ideal for excursions off the slopes. With over 200 lakes, Carinthia is a perfect starting point for winter hikes, cross-country tours and ice skating. With famous ski areas such as Nassfeld, Bad Kleinkirchheim, Mölltaler Gletscher and Heiligenblut, Austria’s southern-most state leaves no wish unfulfilled.
Lower Austria: Lower Austria is the largest Austrian state and the historical heartland of Austria. Here, south and north alpine influences meet, as well as many different types of landscape: riparian forests, alpine pastures, fjordlike lakes, narrow ravines, hill landscapes, lively rivers and mysterious moors. The ski areas in Lower Austria are small and family-friendly. The Zauberberg mountain in Semmering offers one of the biggest night skiing possibilities. At the Annaberg mountain, there are flatter slopes as well as FIS-graded pistes and in Hochkar, children can glide through a small fairy-tale world. Besides the winter sport fun, culinary pleasures also stand in the foreground, thanks to the many wine regions.
Upper Austria: In the fourth-largest federal state of Austria you can enjoy a diverse sports and leisure programme, wonderful lakes embedded in beautiful landscapes and seven attractive ski areas for the whole family, from the Bohemian Forest in the north, to the southern Salzkammergut.
