The ski season is up and running in Austria, with many resorts opening at the start of December and some fresh snow in the mountain resorts as the month approached.

Some of the non-glacier resorts, such as Obergurgl and Ischgl, already opened in November and many ski resorts, whether glacier or not, have their own opening festivities to celebrate the start of the 2017-18 winter season. Details of some of the events can be found on our 2017 winter ski openings page.

We also have an article for those who are looking for a good ski resort in the period before Christmas. We can't guarantee the snow, but some of the best options for those looking for a ski break in early December can be found on our early season Austrian ski resorts page.

And don't forget about booking your place for the festive season or for the school holidays either... many resorts fill up very quickly for the busy Christmas/New Year or February Carnival periods.

With all of the resorts, village accommodation availability can be checked from the search boxes on the skiing and travel pages. For some of the bigger resorts availability can be checked for individual hotels on the hotels page.

In the meantime, we hope you find this site useful in dreaming about your Austrian ski holiday and that you can use it to discover the best Austrian ski resort for your winter holiday. 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.
