Austria Ski Holidays

The Alps cover most of Austria, so it's really no surprise that this country is one of Europe's top ski holiday destinations. Unlike some other European countries, Austrian ski villages are "chocolate-box" traditional and very pretty, centring round an onion-domed church rather than a coach park. Austrian ski resorts also have a reputation for having a high standard of accommodation that doesn't cost an arm and a leg, and some of the liveliest apres ski in the Alps. All in all, a ski holiday in Austria will give you great skiing and beautiful scenery, without breaking the bank.

In recent years the early-season snow in Austria has been a match for anywhere in the world. Some Austrian resorts can be lacking in more challenging terrain, but facilities for beginners are generally pretty good.
