What constitutes the ideal ski trip? Is it the number of runs available? Is it a crackerjack lift system that helps you avoid the crowds? Maybe it’s an abundance of off-piste skiing or perhaps lots of open space for cross country fun. For some, a great ski vacation also has to include plenty of things to do at the end of the day, off the slopes, or lots of activities for friends and family members that don’t ski.
If some or all of those parameters are included in your idea of the perfect ski holiday, consider Austria for your next snow-based vacation. Austria boasts several regions where the skiing is top notch and where things like the après ski scene are important, too. In the Austrian Alps, there are a number of resort areas that fit the bill for great vacation spots, from the slopes near beautiful Innsbruck to much more remote areas where the abundant beauty will take your breath away – with a little help from the awesome skiing.
