Cheap ski holidays Austria: Snow up your life!

Austria, country of Kaiserschmarrn, not only offers its beautiful capital, Vienna, to visitors, but also holds a variety of wonderful ski areas. Some of the world’s most popular ski resorts are located in the states of Tyrol, Salzburg, and Carinthia. Whether more than 200 lakes located in just one state, or the 3,798 m high Großglockner: you will find your perfect ski holidays there. Austria also provides snow-sure skiing on its glaciers, some of which include the Stubaier Glacier, the Hintertux Glacier, or the Kitzsteinhorn, each of them having an altitude of over 3,000 m at their peaks. Besides the well-prepared pistes, lovely winter hiking routes and local cuisine, Austria is known as the number one Après-ski location.

Where to go skiing in Austria?

The heart of Austria, Tyrol, is located between Arlberg and the Kitzbüheler Alps. Tyrol also happens to be the heart of the Alps – especially when it comes to skiing and snowboarding! This is the place where all the popular skiing resorts of Kitzbühel, Ischgl, Sölden or St. Anton are located. Another great option for skiing is in the Salzburger Land, where you find great snow, both early and late in the season, thanks to the 3,000 m high Kitzsteinhorn, which is located in the holiday region Zell am See/Kaprun and has its own glacier, providing snow-sure skiing.

Austria’s southernmost state, Carinthia, offers great skiing opportunities as well as winter hikes, cross-country tours and ice skating. It’s beautiful to spend the winter in Carinthia and enjoy its natural surroundings. Over 200 lakes in addition to the imposing mountain scenery make it a stunning place. If you want to sunbathe during your skiing holiday, East Tyrol might be the place of choice! This doesn’t mean there’s less snow, though - skiing in the sun is what everyone dreams of and you can surely find it here. Still, there are several more regions and states to stay in for an enjoyable ski holiday. Further well-known areas are the Montafon and the legendary resorts of Lech and Zürs in the state of Vorarlberg. These provide you with amazing views on the mountains and landscape and lie at high altitudes, which also makes them snow-sure.

The largest ski areas also extend over several peaks. At least 100 lift systems are also provided and the pistes are well connected. Glaciers additionally help keep the snow-sure season going, even during the summer!Skiing has a long history in Austria. Today, many world cup competitions are held in Austria’s skiing regions, such as the famous, annual “Hahnenkamm” competition in Kitzbühel. Furthermore many people still remember the 1964 and 1976 Winter Olympics in Innsbruck.

How long is it possible to ski in Austria?

The season begins early on and ends even later on the glaciers! In Sölden, the season begins in October and extends well into April. Not only that, the Hintertux Glacier is Austria’s year-round ski area, along with other glaciers also allowing for summer skiing.
