Alpbach and Niederau ski areas have now been linked to offer 150km of pistes which is more than enough for a week and only slightly smaller than say Les Arcs in France, but far prettier! Beginners and Intermediates as well as families will get the best out of skiing here as well as those looking for a great value driven holiday on the slopes. There are however a number of decent black runs and some off piste to keep the diehards happy! And if that’s not enough you can ski also in the nearby Ski Welt area, though not on the same ski pass.

Though the ski area is now quite large, Alpbach and Niederau are not interconnected but are covered by a free shuttle bus.Prices and pistes will please! It certainly will amaze you with just how pretty some of the Austrian areas are and helps create a wonderful atmosphere which you cannot reproduce in other European countries. The sweeping slopes of Alpbach are amongst the most attractive in the Alps and you can enjoy a friendly and relaxed après ski in the very charming village centre, without breaking the bank.


Beginners use the excellent wide nursery slope in the village or are taken to the 'Wiedersbergerhorn' (5 minute bus ride away) where the gondola takes you up to further nursery slopes at the 'Horn Boden'.


This area is an excellent choice for intermediates. The main skiing access is via the Wiedersbergerhorn gondola. You can enjoy long, often tree lined, red runs across the whole area, offering some beautiful views.


The off-piste run down to Hygna (only advisable with a guide) will excite the advanced skier and there are also some black runs to be found on the Wiedersbergerhorn.
