Austria Ski Holidays from Dare2Ski

The land of lederhosen and table dancing awaits your next ski holiday! Skiing or boarding in Austria is an unforgettable experience, for all the right reasons, yet is sometimes ignored by the UK market. If you haven’t been to Austria we recommend you try it soon.

Austria offers very pretty towns and villages, and no horrible purpose built villages, with Austrians whom are friendly and eager to please. There may be not as many ski resorts or skiable terrain as France, but what an experience you will get and the pistes offerings of many resorts are more than you will do in a week. Less costly generally, out and about, compared to say France or Switzerland, this is where après ski was invented, so if you want to know about après ski and "tea dancing" then visit Austria. There is no comparison.

There is a resort in Austria which suits you, with most resorts offering a good selection of catered hotels or self catered apartments and B and B in "pensions”. There are a few chalets around, with many being in the very popular resort of St Anton. Kaprun, Badgastein, St Anton Hintertux and Obergurgl also offer high altitude skiing in snow sure resorts.

Innsbruck, Munich and Salzburg are the main airports servicing Austrian resorts as well as Selva in Italy (which used to be part of Austria). Most transfers are relatively short. Few people tend to drive to Austria for a week but it is still a longer option than say France. The ski areas can be significant such as Ishgl, St Anton and the Ski Weld region, but with most resorts offering between 150 and 250km there is more than enough for the majority for a week. For those who want to try their hand at downhill racing, try the Hahnenkam mens downhill run in Kitzbuhel. If you survive, pop into the Londoner for a congratulatory drink or two. You will have earned it!
