There are skiers, for whom, home is the Austrian Alps. Attractive alpine villages, with onion-domed churches in wooded valleys, is far more appealing than the more purpose-built, mega ski resorts of France. We get this!
Austria’s sales pitch to attract more skiers is quite simple, the lift systems in Austria are now the best of any country in Europe, the snow making is so extensive, that even the low-lying villages, typical of Austrian ski resorts have good snow, even in the spring. Finally, prices, your spending money will go further, especially for food and drinks.
Not all of Austria’s ski resorts are at a low altitude, some are so high, that they can easily compare to the likes of Val d’Isere or Val Thorens in France. Where Austria wins hands down is its après ski, the party starts in the bars on the slopes and goes on until late, if you want.
