Ski trips to the Alps and Austria

Austria has been endowed with a magnificent nature and magnificent mountains designed for what we love most - skiing. The entire nation is a symbol of Alpin sports and there are many resorts that ensure there is something for everyone. Austria is full of well prepared slopes, atmospheric après-ski, high peaks, and winter activities for all types of skiers.

Skiing in modern and efficient ski areas

It is noticeable that Austria has many years of experience in alpine skiing and ski tourism. The country’s lift systems and resorts are modern and efficient. Many of the smaller ski regions have merged into big ski arenas, so you will usually get a many more slopes with just one ticket than in other parts of the Alps. This keeps quality high and prices low.

Although much modernized, Austria has managed to preserve the charm of its idyllic villages. The country is not only famous for the Alps, but also for its hospitality. The joviality and friendliness of the locals is one of the main reasons, why so many of our guests come back to Austria year after year.
