Many Brits learned to ski in Alpbach and Niederau in Tirol, and years later they keep coming back. There's more reason than ever now that the Wildschönau and Alpbachtal areas have linked into Ski Juwel Alpbachtal Wildschönau. This get together provides a total of 145km of skiing, without losing the authentic charm of the local villages. Families will especially benefit from a ski holiday here, and you can take that nostalgia a step further off of the slopes with picturesque snowshoe walks, ice skating and sleigh rides.
Alpbach, "Austria’s most beautiful village", boasts top notch accommodation and service. Rugged Wildschönau is one of the Tirol’s loveliest valleys and has won awards for "Best Family Ski Area" and "Friendliest Staff", as well as for excellent piste preparation. And charming Niederau is an ideal base for beginner and intermediate skiers.
