Salzburg Ski Resorts

salzburg skiing

Salzburg makes an excellent centre as the base for a ski safari of the surrounding mountain countryside and the Salzburg Super Ski Card covers most of the big and small ski resorts in (and out of) the province.

More famous resorts, such as Zell am See, Saalbach and Obertauern, are included on the card, along with some hidden gems in the area, such as the Hochkönig and the ski resorts of the Salzburger Sportwelt.

But the pass also includes some large ski areas outside the province of Salzburg, such as Kitzbühel and Schladming in the Tyrol and Styria.
