Best Ski Resorts in Austria

It’s easy to see why skiing in Austria is becoming more popular. Compared to the glitzy resorts of France and Switzerland, Austria’s casual and laid-back scene exudes a sense of simplicity & tradition, an old-world charm surrounded by cosy villages and fantastic terrain. 

So, whether you’ve been skiing to Austria before or you’re looking to explore some of the best ski resorts in Austria for the first time, you’ve come to the right place. Today, we’ll be counting down our five top ski resorts in Austria, all of which have spectacular ski areas, hundreds of lift links and of course, stunning chalets and hotels for you to rest in after a long day on the slopes. Once we’ve helped you decide on your dream Austrian ski resort, get in touch with the Ski Arrangements team so we can help put together a ski package holiday completely tailored and personalised to you.

St Anton

At the top of our “Best Ski Resorts in Austria” list is St Anton, a ski area which is perfect for expert skiers who want to challenge themselves. Reaching heights of 2,800 metres, St Anton resort has the longest downhill piste in the Arlberg, a hill that is aptly named “The White Thrill”. The region also holds an important place in ski history as the site of the first ski club in the Alps which began in 1901. While not recommended for beginners, there are still plenty of slopes for intermediates as well as a fantastic range of shops, café’s, inns and hotels for you to enjoy after the day is over. For a place that ski’s hard, St Anton certainly parties even harder with the likes of Mooserwirt and Krazy Kanguruh considered some of the top après bars on the planet.

Lech Arlberg

Next up is Lech Arlberg, a pretty village that has found itself popular with many royals and celebs over the years. As soon as you arrive, you’ll understand exactly why it’s number two on our Best Ski Resorts in Austria list. It’s old wood and stone buildings are situated beautifully along the riverside, paired with a traditional Austrian church with a vast backdrop of downhill stopes for all skill types. It certainly gives off an air of luxury with plenty of 4 and 5 star accommodation to choose from, all situated within a small and quiet atmosphere. If you’re an off-piste skier, you’ll lover the back country terrain of Lech Arlberg while for families looking for some beginner-friendly slopes, there is a wide range of terrain with some budget-friendly lodgings to match.

Mayrhofen

Arguably one of Britain’s favourite ski resorts, Mayrhofen gained popularity back in the Seventies as one of the original migration points for British skiers. Its allure has never faded and families, groups, beginners and experts alike continue to revel in the beauty of Mayrhofen resort and its incredible value for money. There are two mountains that make up the local ski area, the first Ahorn which is described as having “cruisey” slopes and Penken which delivers a more adrenaline-filled adventure for expert skiers and snowboarders. Christmas time is particularly magical in Mayrhofen with the old-school charm of the village coming to life with markets and carollers.

St Christoph

While not the biggest and most popular ski resort in Austria, St Christoph had to make our list for those looking for a smaller, quiet village with plenty of charm and magic. Only a 10 minutes’ drive from St Anton, St Christoph sits remotely near the Arlberg Pass as one of the highest ski resorts in the Alps. The 350km of piste which link to St Anton, Lech and Zürs, is largely filled with blue slopes so there’s plenty to do for intermediates and experts. There are only 25 buildings in total in St Christoph, most of them cosy hotels and chalets and delicious restaurants for evening leisure. If you prefer a livelier night out, it’s not difficult to head 10 minutes towards St Anton before coming home to the peace and quiet of St Christoph.

Bad Kleinkirchheim

BKK as some of us Brits call it, Bad Kleinkrichheim is a skiing area that will make every skier’s heart beat faster. Perfect for families, groups, couples, beginners, and experts, the 103 kilometres of perfectly groomed pistes deliver pure skiing pleasure. It is one of our top ski resorts for families, not only for the fact that under 12’s ski for free, but it has both on and off pistes for all different levels of difficulty, four ski schools, an exclusive kids slope and a ski kindergarten for little ones under 3. Nock Hotel Resort is a fantastic choice for families too, a reasonably priced 4 star ski in and ski out hotel with a relaxing garden, indoor pool and an awarding winning restaurant.
