    Resorts with Extra-Long Skiing Seasons

    There are various Austrian resorts that guarantee snow from December and earlier until April or May. Forget monitoring those snow reports, just choose your destination, pack the thermals, and off you go!

    Kaunertal Glacier

    The Kaunertal Glacier is Tirol's youngest glacier. There is plenty of room on the 32.5 prepared pistes, 30 km (19 mi) of natural ski routes, and 138 hectares (341 ac) of skiable area, with hardly any lift queues. Snow is guaranteed from late September until June, thanks to a high-altitude location. From the legendary opening party to the family-friendly ski area in Fendels, there is something to suit all ages.
