Ski-Austria.com brings you an independent analysis of the top Austrian ski resorts. With resort maps and plans of the ski runs, with lists of the top hotels in the resorts and with a rundown of the best road and rail routes to each ski resort and the most convenient airport. Updated snow reports in the winter.
And, above all, fresh ski photos - with the images of the villages in winter and of the ski areas that will tempt any skier to choose Austria as a destination.
Lastly, we have visited each resort and have skied the runs so the description is one you can trust.
Winter is fast approaching...
....the webcams are showing the first snow on the ski runs in Austria...
....and those resorts not already up and running are gearing up for the first day of the 2018-2019 winter ski season.
If you have been waiting for the first snowfall to book your early-season ski holiday, then now is the time to get going. Christmas and New Year availability is likely fairly limited by now, but early January is a favourite for keen skiers.
Remember that Easter is late this year, so school holiday period is going to be stretched out over the whole of February and the beginning of March - time to start thinking about booking if you are planning on a family ski break in Austria.
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 holidays and that you can use it to discover the best Austrian ski area for your winter break. As always, if you have any questions, send us a quick mail. We can't arrange your entire ski holiday for you, but maybe we can point you in the direction of a ski 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.
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
