Information & Booking
Austria’s sunny southern province makes winter dreams come true due to its unique geographic location on the south side of the Alps within the Alps-Adriatic region. Carinthia is spoiled with a mild yet snowy winter climate and some 100 more hours of sunshine than ski destinations to the west of the alpine range. In fact, last winter, Carinthia enjoyed the most snow in the Alps

Whether a seasoned skier or hesitant first-timer, Carinthia’s 24 mountain resorts (with more than 900km of slopes across all abilities) range from 3000m to lower altitudes popular with families and where children as young as two are welcomed by seasoned ski instructors. Many of Carinthia’s slopes are counted amongst the best in Austria, and even all of Europe. 

Just a few of the standout experiences on a Carinthian ski holiday: the opportunity to ski alongside an Olympic and World Cup champion, night skiing on the longest floodlit slope in the Alps, challenges on the Alps’ longest black run (8.5km), and surprise spoils by a slope butler serving up complimentary refreshments, sweets, gelato and more! 

Holidaymakers can also take advantage of a range of offerings away from the pistes, including atmospheric evenings in mountain huts, delicious Alps-Adriatic cuisine, and traditional alpine festivities. The combination of ski and spa is also a popular one at resorts such as Bad Kleinkirchheim, with its long-standing spa tradition dating back to imperial times, luring those looking for a blend of top winter recreation on world cup slopes and an extensive wellness menu. 

A variety of budget-friendly, regional ski passes open the door to affordable fun, while the ‘Learn to ski or your money back’ programme is not only a superb introduction to the sport but also a testament to Carinthian ski schools.
