The picturesque villages of Austria offer wide, quiet slopes, fantastic après ski and all with a contagiously friendly atmosphere. Austria's alpine villages were around long before the first ski lifts cropped up, which is why even the largest of 'villages' such as St Anton still have traditional centres. Austrian's are justifiably proud of their skiing heritage; St Anton not only held the first downhill races but also formed the first ski school in the early 1900’s!
Continuous investment over the last few decades has ensured this wonderful sense of history is now delivered via an incredibly modern infrastructure and hi-tech snow making systems. And with wellness practically a national pastime expect plenty of saunas, steam rooms and spas, a welcomed indulgence after a day on the slopes - in the more traditional hotels they may expect you to shed your clothes, don't say we didn't warn you.
The quality of the ski areas, diverse range of accommodation options and a friendly welcome, deliver a fantastic experience together with the Austrian's inimitable sense of fun and frivolity.
