Niederau, a beautifully scenic village at one end of the Wildschonau valley has long been a favorite resort with British beginner and early intermediate skiers and family trips.
Since linked, the Ski Juwel area boasts 109km of piste and 45 lifts since, with a top altitude of 2025m. The slopes closer to Niederau make a great base for those just getting going, with the well respected Wildschönau Ski School. More advanced skiers will prefer to venture further afield.
It is the main resort in the Wildschönau and is quite spread out, yet still oozes Tyrolean charm. A cluster of restaurants and shops around the gondola station form the nearest thing to a focal point though few hotels are more than five minutes' walk from a main lift. The resort also offers horse-drawn sleigh rides, while families will enjoy an excursion to the nearby Wörgl, home to the Wave Water Adventure World. A short hour transfer from Innsbruck and great value accommodation are other factors that keen Brits coming back year on year.
