Alpbach is an old British favourite - it even has a British ski club.

A beautiful little ski resort, even by Austrian standards, Alpbach is renown for it's relaxed and welcoming atmosphere. It's filled with wood clad chalets, narrow streets and historic church give it a real character and charm.

The Wildschönau area is best known in Britain for the tiny resort of Niederau, although its major resort in skiing terms is Auffach. A two-stage gondola is all it took in 2012 to link Alpbach and Auffach. They are also part of the Kitzbüheler Alpen All Star pass area, including the SkiWelt (Söll, Ellmau etc) and Kitzbühel - a great base for day tripping by car.



Charming, traditional, relaxed villages, good for families

Good intermediate terrain, not without challenges


A lot of bus riding if you choose to stay in cute central Alpbach

Long easy runs for progression are few, and not easily reached
