Austria. Winter Unleashed

Head to Austria up the winding roads that seemingly drape around the mountains to where snow blankets the crags, creating soft white peaks. Settle into an authentic Austrian town bursting with warm welcomes, world-class cuisine and spectacular skiing.

Each ski area has countless winter activities, for all kinds of skiers and groups to enjoy. The fun doesn’t stop when the day ends, as when the sun starts to set, glasses of schnapps start clinking and ski boots start stomping all into the small hours of the morning.

With extensive linked ski areas, and snow-sure slopes, Austria’s winter wonderland is swiftly becoming a favourite natural playground for all. Some of the best skiing in the Alps is waiting to be discovered… but where should you start?

What will you discover this winter?
