The Arlberg ski area features some of the finest skiing to be found anywhere in the world. It is reliably snow-sure and there are endless challenging ski runs to tackle for the more adventurous skiers and snowboarders. Whilst holding the reputation of being more suited to confident skiers, the many wooded mountains provide gentle slopes perfect for beginners and timid intermediates, making Austria and get ski holiday for families too.
Austria claims to have the most efficient ski lift systems in Europe as well as excellent snowmaking technology which means you can expect reliable snow-cover even at the low altitudes.
The extensive Arlberg ski area is home to several iconic resorts:
The Austrian ski season tends to run from early December through to late April, and thanks to state of the art technology, even the lower resorts can run all season long. Choosing when to go all depends on what kind of luxury ski holiday you are looking for. The Austrian Christmas markets and festive celebrations, in particular New Year’s Eve, are a huge draw for visiting in December. For those wanting the best conditions, emptier slopes and best value for luxury ski chalets then January is the best month. February is a great time of the season for families and late February and March are good sun-seekers. By April there is the risk of slushy afternoons, but you will benefit from warmer weather and can enjoy long mountain lunches in the sunshine.
The most famous ski resort within the Arlberg region is St Anton and it is known as one of the finest resorts in the world, as well as being the home of Alpine skiing. Just over an hour by road from Innsbruck airport, St Anton is one of the quickest resorts to access, making it perfect for families. With stunning luxury ski chalets, endless skiing and a vibrant and charming town centre, St Anton offers everything you would want from a ski holiday to Austria. There is an abundant selection of catered luxury ski chalets in St. Anton, with many in keeping with traditional Austrian architecture, making each property really unique.
Lech is the perfect resort for the true luxury ski holiday connoisseur. It is part of the extensive Arlberg ski area and is one of the most desirable ski destinations combining fabulous Austrian chalets, world-class dining and amazing skiing. With a chocolate box style village, incredible valleys views, and snow-covered rooftops, plus horse-drawn carriages and fur coats, you can see why this ski resort is popular amongst the European royal families. The luxury ski chalets tend to have stylish interiors, all adding to the glamour of Lech.
For those looking to get away from the hustle and bustle and focus on skiing, then Zürs is the place for you. It is one of the snowiest places in the Alps with an average of 11m of snowfall each season! Many of the luxury Austrian ski chalets in Zürs offer ski-in/ski-out access, which means you can be enjoying the extensive slopes and powdery off-piste right from your doorstep.
