The region of Tirol
is Austria's skiing mecca. First-timers to seasoned ski veterans will find a resort to suit them with more than 150 ski areas
to choose from, including 5 glaciers
, across a total of 3,500 km
of superbly groomed slopes.
World-famous resorts such as St Anton
need little introduction, whilst British favourites such as Mayrhofen
continue to appeal year after year. The resorts within the Ski Welt, Austria’s largest skiing area, including Söll
are ideal for all abilities and for clocking up the miles. Families are attracted to child-friendly resorts such as Seefeld
, whilst Tirol’s capital Innsbruck
is perfect for city skiing, from the Olympic slopes of the Axamer Lizum to glacier skiing on the Stubai.
Bringing skiers back year after year is the great warmth the region extends to all who visit. The locals are genuinely friendly, food is hearty (just what you need after a day in the mountains), accommodation is of high-quality and more to the point, affordable, and the resorts exude true mountain village charm.
Après-ski and the Tirol belong together like snow to winter. Every resort has its own unique après-ski
scene and whatever your style, you can find it in the Tirol. But the nightlife is not limited to partying. There are many off the slopes activities to enjoy, from traditional pastimes like tobogganing
and horse-drawn sleigh rides
to adrenaline-fuelled pursuits like paragliding
or even spending the night in a mountain igloo
All mainstream tour operators and many smaller specialist operators feature resorts across the Tirol region. With most resorts located between 30minutes and 2 hours away you can benefit from the added bonus of a short transfer. And with daily winter flights from the UK to Innsbruck, getting there independently has never been so easy.
