Ski Resorts in Austria

Austria’s 4,000-foot-and-more vertical rises tower over the measly 2,000+ in the U.S. These impressive peaks may not be quite as monolithic as in neighboring France, but of all the Alps’ ski-friendly countries, Austria offers the best value for your buck, not to mention more quaint villages than Town & Country could begin to cover. The villages, interspersed within the valleys of snow-drenched Alps, add a good deal of lodging options to the normal hotel and condo scene available at most ski resorts. Main ski regions like Tyrol and Salzberg are dense with trails, and skiers can schuss from one resort to the next on the same lift ticket. In Tyrol’s Arlberg, five ski towns (including St. Anton) provide a nightlife as rigorous as the 5,000-foot slopes for energetic skiers feeling equally frenetic at night.
