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.

  • Obertauern

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