Austria is the smallest area of Europe’s Big Four ski countries. But it remains number two in the world and catching up France quickly for popularity and number of visitors. Austria is often criticised for having low altitudes but mountain locals have countered this by installing what is arguably the world’s most mechanised ski lift system and sensational snow making which means you are guaranteed snow at most times during the season. Prices, while not cheap, are lower than its competitors.

  • Amade

    The Amadé region, less than an hour from Salzburg airport, is certainly Ski Easy territory, but the lift map in their publicity is a bit of a con because it implies that its 25 resorts and 860 pistes are all linked up – which they are certainly not.

  • Arlberg

    Austria’s Arlberg ski region is one of the best-known in the world because its three main resorts all have big-league status.

  • Bad Kleinkircheim

    Bad Kleinkircheim nestles in the midst of the Turracher mountain range and is a perfect ski resort, though it is best-known for its spas, and curative natural waters.

  • Carinthia

    The southernmost Austrian region of Carinthia has some large and exciting ski areas.

  • Lech & Zürs

    If it’s a more sophisticated ski break you want, in less-steep terrain, then linked Lech and Zürs are the places to go.

  • Nassfeld

    The southernmost Austrian region of Carinthia has some large and exciting ski areas, the top two featured here.

  • Obertauern

    Obertauern is Austria's high-altitude and most snowsure resort, with slopes spanning 2,313m down to 1,630m.
