About Last Minute Ski Deals

Austria possesses many outstanding and world class resorts that must be visited by all types of skiers. It has 3 main ski areas; Tyrol, Vorarlberg and Salzburg which all hold numerous fantastic ski destinations, several of which have glaciers too.

Austria is the land of friendly wooded mountains, welcoming people and exceptional ski areas. A nation which has produced some of the finest talents in the trade; Hermann Maier and Annemarie Moser-Proll have won many Olympic titles and are considered to be two of the best skiers of all time.

Overall Austria is 5th in the all time winter Olympics medal count and has won more alpine skiing world cups than any other nation. St.Anton in the Tyrol-Arlberg is one of the most famous resorts in the World. It is full of life and is undoubtedly vibrant that has added to its popularity with the British ski market. The ski region is outstanding for experts and those advanced skiers but is also great for families and intermediates too.

One of the most other manifest qualities of St.Anton is its après ski scene with bars such as the Mooserwirt, Taps and the Krazy Kanagaroo being unbelievably popular … with very good reason. Après Ski, despite being a French phrase has very much been adopted by the Austrian’s here. Youngsters and all those seeking a good time amid excellent skiing should be obliged to head to St.Anton.

Ischgl, at good altitude is another top recommendation whilst Lech, one of the earlier Alpine villages is most fashionable, sophisticated and cosmopolitan. Check with the experts which Austrian resort suits your skiing/requirements the most, but Austria certainly does boast something for everyone.
