Luxury ski holidays in Austria

Considering Austria for your next ski holiday? Austrian ski holidays have quite a distinctive recipe. It doesn’t suit everybody but for many skiers no other country will do. Austria is the land of cute little villages clustered around onion-domed churches – there are certainly no purpose-built apartment blocks here.

It’s the land of friendly, welcoming people who speak very good English, great après-ski action, and Austria ski holidays are often great value for money when compared to its French and Swiss counterparts.

In general, skiing in Austria may not be the first choice if snow reliability is number one on your tick list, as the Austrian ski resorts do tend to be a little lower. However, that said, many lower resorts have radically increased their snowmaking capacity in recent years should the natural snow be lacking.

It’s the après ski that strikes most first time visitors as being Austria’s unique selling point. Nightlife is not limited to drinking and dancing, however, there are floodlit toboggan runs, ice skating, horse-drawn sleigh rides, bowling and much more.

Best ski resorts in Austria

With near to 80 ski resorts in Austria, it surely speaks volumes that we have chosen to provide holidays in just two resorts. So of course, we would say St Anton and Lech are the best resorts in Austria.

Austria for a family ski holiday?

St Anton is a great resort for families. The Arlberg ski school is excellent, and the special slopes for both toddlers and bigger children are ideal. Two of our chalets in St Anton are located at the Nasserein end of the village, where there is a moving carpet lift on the baby slope.

Lech is also well suited to families, offering a wider range of beginner slopes, child friendly lifts, heated seats and exceptional ski tuition. Our hotel is located just a few metres from the main ski lifts where you can access the whole of the Arlberg ski area.

Hotel Thedoul has family rooms where the children travel half price, and we also offer a private nanny service or kids club for ski school age children.
