Accommodation Ski Resorts in Austria
Choosing the best one for you just requires some thought about the kind of skier you are, the type of accommodation you prefer and how you want to spend your evenings.
For a short ski trip to Austria, a good place to stay is Innsbruck. This busy city has its own airport, so travel time is at a minimum which is perfect for a long weekend. It is also a great place for anyone who enjoys fine dining and extensive shopping on their winter holiday as this city has it all.
A favourite with the Brits, the resort of Soll is part of the extensive Ski Welt area offering links to every kind of run possible. Soll itself is quite compact, and you will need to hop on a bus to get to the slopes. There are plenty of affordable hotels on offer in the town, and busy bars offering live music are easy to find.
Book a winter holiday in Alpach for a resort that’s family friendly. It is pretty, atmospheric and perfect for beginners – in fact the nursery slope is right in the centre of town. The buildings are mostly wood-and-stone places, and things are a little quieter.
There are miles of slopes at Bad Hofgastein and something for all levels with wide red, blue and black runs offering plenty of open space. This town has a great choice of chalets and apartments, as well as 3 and 4-star hotels.
Ischel is sitting at a high altitiude, and the runs are suitable for experienced skiers and snowboarders. The accommodation here is luxurious and sophisticated.
Lech is the place to be seen and a favourite resort with celebrities and occasional royals. It is part of the huge Ski Arlberg which connects resorts, such as Zurs and St Anton, and is well-known for the immaculate piste and high-tech lift system. Restaurants and bars are plentiful and the party atmosphere starts early here.
