Austrian skiing - simply the best!
In our opinion (and we’ve skied most everywhere) Austria offers the best all-round ski experience of any Alpine nation. Resorts continually invest in their ski infrastructure - new lifts, new piste and always improved snowmaking facilities. Piste management is second to none and prices are some of the keenest in Europe. You'll always be welcome and you'll always be pleased with the service.
‘The Ski Jewel, kitzbühel
Alps and so much more’
The Kitzbuhler Alps combine seven of the best ski areas in the Tyrol, offering guests guaranteed snow, state of the art cable cars and lifts, more than 1000kms of piste and a myriad of mountain bars and restaurants. The Ski Jewel, comprising Niederau, Auffach and Alpbach is an integral part of this massive system.
Niederau is renowned as one of the world’s best resorts for beginners and families. The extensive nursery slopes are dotted around the village centre while the blue runs on the upper slopes are wide and gentle. There are red and black runs back to the village. Auffach close by offers a range of slopes - the best is the long blue and red home run. Auffach and Alpbach are joined with a gondola and middle station red piste connection - 130km of piste and 45 lifts.
to the SkiWelt which, in itself joins the slopes above Kiztbuhel, Jochburg, Pass Thurn and Mittersill.
Further afield but reachable in no more than 40 minutes is Steinplatter - skiing from Austria into Germany, Fieberbrunn offering access to a big day skiing across the Ski Circus encompassing Hinterglemm, Saalbach and Leogang and the whole of the Ziller Valley including Mayrhofen.
Most every day we offer complimentary ski guiding to the Ski Jewel, all parts of the SkiWelt, Kitzbuhel, Jochberg and Pass Thurn and often a little further afield to Steinplatter, the Ski Circus, Zell am Ziller and Gerlos on the Zillertal and even Mayrhofen, Kaltenbach and Hoch Fungen.
Most available on the Super Ski Card here - a combined pass that soaks up more resorts than any other in the world. Guiding never replaces ski school.
