Traditional Villages

The Austrian ski resorts are known for their picture perfect cosy chalets especially in the smaller resorts that are off the radar to many skiers. These relatively unheard of villages typically share the same mountains and pistes as the heavy hitting resorts yet offer substantial savings on accommodation costs. Good examples are esorts such as Fugen in the Ziller Valley provides access to the Mayrhofen ski area and Galtur in the Paznaun valley lets you ski in Ischgl.

The resorts vary enormously from the quieter, charming and traditional to the more upbeat resorts such as Ischgl, Mayrhofen and St Anton where the apres-ski is legendary and kicks-off early afternoon on the slopes and finishes in the early hours of the morning!

Many of the ski resorts tend to be nestled close to each other in the numerous valleys around Salzburg and Tyrol creating some of the largest ski areas in the world although not all of the resorts are connected by lift. So, if you enjoy ski touring and exploring other ski resorts, you may be interested in visiting the Ziller Valley - home to many ski resorts including Mayrhofen, and the Arlberg region with the ever popular resort of St Anton.
