When a passing local says Servus (hi) or Tschuss (bye) to you, you know you’re in a friendly Austrian ski resort. It has proven impossible to knock Austria off its number one spot as Ireland’s favourite ski destination and it’s easy to see why.

From Salzburgerland to Tirol, Austrian ski resorts combine a winning mix of tradition and fairytale prettiness with inter-connected ski areas and a massive dollop of good old-fashioned fun.

Short airport transfers make Austria ideal for families, with many resorts just ninety minutes from Salzburg. In resort, families will find a welcome and standard of care for children that’s hard to beat.

Another plus is that many Austrian resorts – especially those catering for beginners and intermediates – are compact and easy to get around. No hauling the whole family’s ski gear from one end of the resort to the other!

But for us, the biggest plus when skiing or boarding in Austria is its value-for-money. Lunch on the mountain and drinks in the evening seem so much sweeter when prices are affordable!

The Austrians are passionate about skiing and tourism. Oh and let’s not forget wellness pampering yourself is taken very seriously in Austrian resorts with both traditional and contemporary thermal spas as standard.

Higher resorts are snow-sure and Austria invests heavily in snow-making to ensure that you will always get skiing. The SkiWelt area alone has 1,500 snow cannons ready to fluff up those long blue runs for you. Larger resorts have a cosmopolitan feel and more challenging ski terrain to satisfy the most expert skier or boarder.

Increasingly, Austrian mountain restaurants have a reputation for serving excellent food and various resorts host music and comedy festivals during the winter season.

There are excellent snow parks for boarders and freestylers in resorts like Mayrhofen, night skiing in Söll and Kitzbühel, and back country/ski touring options for the hardcore element near Bad Hofgastein.
