Catered chalet holidays in Austria
Austria is fast becoming the most popular ski destination for British skiers and snowboarders. Fast catching the top ski country France because it has never “taken the mick” with in-resort prices for drinking and eating out, Austrian resorts also top their Gaelic neighbours in terms of the welcome of the locals. The spectacular mountain ranges are the perfect backdrop to enjoy the world beating ski areas and glaciers which are suitable for literally all levels of skiers and boarders.
Austria has some of the best ski resorts in Europe, with miles of tree-lined pistes descending into traditional mountain villages filled with chocolate box catered chalets which ooze Austrian alpine charm. Add to that the now legendary après ski scene (if you've never partied in St Anton or Mayrhofen, well then you've not seen the world's best apre ski), value for money in resort, outstanding quality of service and friendliness it is easy to understand why Austrian ski holidays are a favourite with British skiers, challenging France for the number one spot.
Austrian resorts and après ski
The memorable Austrian resorts offer the ultimate skiing experience with lots of choice skiing for all levels of boarders and skiers alike. Although the resorts in Austria are generally lower than those in France, this isn't usually an issue during the main season, it is worth checking, however, the snow reports and history before booking a very early or very late date in the season.
Austria is renowned for vibrant Apres ski, especially in resorts such as Mayrhofen and St Anton with venues such as the MooserWirt and Crazy Kangaruh, situated at the top of the last piste. Make sure your ski boots are comfortable enough to dance in and beware that leaving after dark (and slightly over-refreshed) can make finding your skis and doing the last run into town a little challenging. All part of the fun! As in St Anton, apres in Austria often starts on the mountain slopes, why not try a cosy gluhwein at a warm and welcoming mountain hut. In the smaller Austrian resorts the Apres is also good with the friendly atmosphere so typical of Austria.
