skiing in austria
The main ski season is just coming to its end, with the remaining winter resorts scheduled to close at the end of April/beginning of May. Those who are thinking of taking a late ski break somewhere like Lech or Obergurgl. We have a page about late opening resorts which we have updated for this season in our Articles section.
Of course, skiing continues on the glaciers when the main slopes close down. If you are interested in taking a few runs outside the main season, check our page about summer skiing resorts in Austria.
And even though the main ski resorts may have closed, don't forget that many hotels get booked up well in advance for the busy periods in the winter. Even during the summer months you can still check winter availability for any resort that interests you.
With all of the resorts, village accommodation availability can be checked from the search boxes on the skiing and travel pages, or for individual hotels on the hotels page.
In the meantime, we hope you find this site useful in dreaming about your Austrian ski holiday for next winter and, as always, if you have any questions, send us a quick mail. We can't arrange your entire holiday for you, but maybe we can point you in the direction of a resort which is suitable.
The map below shows which ski resorts are covered on this site - currently we have resorts in the Vorarlberg, the Tyrol, Salzburg and Styria (not forgetting a page on the ski resorts closest to Vienna as well):
The map can be zoomed in and out and moved using the controls on the left to see the ski resorts in more detail. Alternatively, use the navigation to the left to see the ski resorts listed in an order which (roughly!) goes from east to west.
And, of course, don't forget to take a look at our Articles section, which has attempted to answer some of the most commonly-asked questions about skiing in Austria.
If you have decided on Europe but haven't yet made a final decision on choosing Austria as your ski destination, then feel free to take a look over at the ski coverage by our friends on the other side of the Alps at About-France.com. Check out their winter analysis here: Skiing in the French Alps
