Ski 2 Areas
Exclusively for guests at the Hotel Sonnschein and Harfenwirt, there will be a free ski bus departing Thursdays and Fridays from Niederau to Hopfgarten, 9km away. Hopfgarten has direct access to the superb Ski Welt area, the biggest linked ski area in Austria. The Ski Welt area includes the resorts of Söll, Scheffau, Ellmau, Itter and Hopfgarten and has 279km of piste to suit every ability. Upgrade lift pass in resort, shuttle available from departures of 4th Jan 2014.
Niederau skiing is probably best suited to beginners and early intermediates, with a highly regarded ski school, nice nursery slopes and gentle blues. There isn't really much for more advanced skiers apart from a bit of off-piste and a couple of black runs, although there is a good snow park down in Auffach (free ski bus)for those that are that way inclined.
Niederau ski resort
The resort itself is picturesque and charming. Accommodation is located close to the slopes and the après ski is good without being too hectic. The sedate and friendly atmosphere makes for a good choice for family ski holidays, as does the short transfer (45 mins to Innsbruck).
